Effects of Lemon Thai Kush

You may already know about the effects of Kush. Kush, being one of the most popular varieties of medical cannabis is a hard-hitting indica known for its relaxing and dizzying effects.

Lemon Thai comes from SE Asian varieties of cannabis, known for the psychedelic effects they give when used. Many describe the effect akin to a mushroom-like feeling.

Lemon Thai Kush is a good strain that has the best of both worlds – sativa and indica.

Oh really?
Not for the fainthearted, these cannabis buds sometimes are known to induce paranoia from their intense high-THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) content. THCV is predicted to be a factor in this, described as giving a “speedy” and “psychedelic” effect.

Combined with the brute force of a hard-hitting indica, Kush, this hybrid Lemon Thai Kush offers a balanced effect of psychoactive and body highs.

Thai, Lao, Cambodian, Khmer, Malaysian and Vietnamese sativa strains share a common thread and contrast with indica. These effects create a visual, clear-headed feeling without munchies or couchlock. Nevertheless, Lemon Thai Kush may be too intense for some.

Growing Lemon Thai Kush

Lemon Thai Kush is a high-yielding strain, growing into a tree stature over its 8 week flowering cycle. The colas grow incredibly wide as you approach harvest. Some key features of this strain:

  • Easy-to-grow and productive (350-500 g/m2, big plants outdoors)
  • 16-20% THC content
  • Grows well indoors or outdoors.
  • Available as regular and feminized seeds.
  • Mostly sativa dominant phenos, with some indica-dominance showing up
  • Harvest around September in the northern hemisphere

Lemon Thai Kush buds hold up exceptionally well to mold problems, due to their humid climate genetics. Outdoor growers know how devastating the dreaded blue/grey mold Botrytis cinerea can be. Lemon Thai Kush is also resistant to powdery mildew. (If you’re struggling to fight powdery mildew, you can do it organically! Check out this- Powdery Mildew Organic Remedies)

Strains with SE Asian genetics tend to handle damage by rotting slowly, instead of being susceptible to mold. Compare this to some Afghani genetics that will quickly become infected with blue mold, spreading through the plant within mere hours. Lemon Thai Kush is very mold resistant.

Go Big or Go Home
Lemon Thai Kush does great grown as a beaster weed tree. Provide 18 hour plus lighting early on the season to get a head-start on the 10 weeks of flowering. If you are in a cold climate you may consider starting this strain indoors, in a heated greenhouse.

In closing

Combine the desirable effects of SE-Asian sativa with the strength and quick flowering of Kush and you have an easy-to-grow fast-flowering 8 week plant and you have a clear champion of the garden.

This is an extremely fragrant strain with a strong head high combined with a fair amount of indica punch. Effects vary by phenotype.

Lemon Thai Kush is recommended to all growers, indoor and outdoor, looking to try a Southeast Asian sativa that can be high-yielding, flavorful, and quicker finishing. The supreme high is one that you’ll never forget!
