About Joes Lemonade
Joe’s Lemonade is a strain by the Spanish breeder, Dark Horse Genetics, one that leans heavily towards sativa-dominance (80/20). It comes from a mix of Alien Kush F2 and Lemon Skunk, which means it has two Las Vegas heavy-hitters in its lineage – Las Vegas Purple Kush and Las Vegas Lemon Skunk. Going back further, the strain has a lot of Afghani genetic lines, which contribute to its diverse terpene structure. The strain has a lot of lemon flavor but is also a complex-tasting giggle-inducer that’s popular for a reason. Continue reading to learn the flavors and effects that Joe’s Lemonade gives its users.
This strain grows in a sativa-typical structure, but with tight buds shaped like little spades. They’re light green but interspersed with amber pistil fuzz and a layer of white crystal trichomes, shiny and frosty like a layer of ice. They almost look like resiny little brussels sprouts in your hand.
A Loss of Appetite
Joe’s Lemonade has a terpene profile that includes humulene, pinene, linalool, and myrcene in nearly equal amounts. Linalool brings in the overtone of lemon that you’ll notice right away (even the buds have a whiff of citrus). Humulene adds flavors of honey and lime, making the strain both brighter and more tart as well as sweeter on the inhale. Pinene contributes to the strain’s outdoorsy aftertaste, with a faint taste of tea and herbs, while myrcene mellows it out with the undertone of vanilla and a bit of a nutty aftertaste on the exhale. All told, Joe’s Lemonade is a citrusy, tasty, and inoffensive flavor that sativa fans should relish and inexperienced users should be able to handle without risking anything too spicy.
As you smoke, and the lemony, earthy, tea-like flavor hits you, Joe’s Lemonade will make you feel warm, relaxed, and giddy. You can expect to feel unfocused and giggly, all the while moving and doing stuff with high energy. This is not a sedating or productivity-destroying strain. It’s an up-and-at-’em Sativa with a lot to give and a THC level of around 21%. It makes its users feel hungry, balanced, energetic, happy, and relaxed.
Joe’s Lemonade is perfect for the afternoon, when you can feel good about yourself and get things done. If you use it too late, you risk staying up all night with the giggles. Use it with friends and with plenty of snacks around, or on a day when you need a lemony incentive to get your housework going. Despite hefty THC levels, it can be downright refreshing in the right doses.
