The origins of Lemon Kush are heavily disputed. It is generally agreed that this marijuana strain is a mix of the Lemon G Sativa marijuana strain and the Master Kush indica strain. The THC percentage of our lemon kush is somewhere between 16-26% on average, but of course some batches could test a bit higher or lower. Lemon Kush weed is a 50% indica, 50% sativa hybrid marijuana strain, and is a perfect balance between the two types. This ratio gives this kush an intriguing type of high, that not only satisfies the recreational cannabis population.
