Odor and Flavors
The skunk heritage of Lemon Haze is not as evident as its parent strains. That is because it is drowned by the pungent smell of citrusy lemon which seems to fill up not only the room but the whole house. Not that it is a bad thing though as its sweetish aroma is a delight. Furthermore, it is smooth to use, and the lingering lemony aftertaste can be tempting and incite the urge to use a little bit more.
Little do users know that Lemon Haze is a tiny package that comes with big surprises. Experts say that this strain is probably not for the faint-hearted. In the beginning, the effects may come off as a little gentle, but soon, it kicks in hard. Only then do users realize the extent of its potency.
People using Lemon Haze tend to be more sociable. It wakes up the happy endorphins that turn users chatty. After all, that is the natural reaction to feeling uplifted and happy. For some people, they may also feel highly elated. On days when one could use a little positivity, this strain can lighten up the mood.
Apart from the behavioral change, Lemon Haze also boosts the energy level of users. Furthermore, it unlocks creative thinking with a heightened sense of focus. Feeling energetic and motivated, they should be able to do things with relative ease.
Meanwhile, the Indica side of Lemon Haze creeps into the body gently. As time passes, most users feel more relaxed but not to the point of laziness.
Aside from the usual dry eyes and dry mouth, adverse effects when using Lemon Haze luckily does not happen often. Unless, of course, when using too much.
Once users start to breach their tolerance limit, the cerebral effects become more intense and can be overwhelming. Not only does it cause dizziness, but it can also cause some people to feel more anxious or paranoid. Any benefits such as having a clear head oozing with creative ideas become negated. Instead, overindulgence leads to being spaced out.
Medical Use and Benefits
Tiny on the outside but the medical effects of Lemon Haze are a huge deal for people in need. It has traits that are beneficial for people who are suffering from certain medical conditions.
For instance, the relaxing effect it also plays a role in pain relief. It does so with not only the physical effects but also by inducing cerebral euphoria taking the mind away from the discomforts.

Growing Lemon Haze
One of the qualities Lemon Haze has that makes it versatile is that it grows in both the indoor and outdoor environments. Beginners may also find this an ideal strain because of its resistance to molds and pests.
Ideally, people should be able to plant cannabis anywhere. But that is not allowed in most parts of the world. If it were, it is the cheapest or most economical way since not much equipment is needed. What is essential is that growers cultivate it in a warm climate. From the vegetative stage, it starts the transition to flowering during the second week of October. Each plant can potentially produce up to 500 grams of buds.
