In 2008 and 2009, the Green House Coffeeshop juggernaut scored back to back Cannabis Cup wins with their strain Super Lemon Haze. Many huge vape bags were filled and given out to judges to sample this unique marijuana variety. The following excerpt is from my book The Official HIGH TIMES Field Guide to Marijuana Strains, in which you can find over 125 strains described. As we prep for the 26th annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam this November, let’s revisit this exquisite past master.
Super Lemon Haze - Green House Seeds
Amsterdam’s finest coffeeshops pride themselves on their Haze strains but Green House can back up their boasts with multiple wins at the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. This citrus flavored Haze/Skunk hybrid delivers in odor, taste and potency and growers will be pleased with the dense growing characteristics giving higher yields than a typical sativa-dominant variety.
The true complexities of Super Lemon Haze are best experienced with a good vaporizer, as the subtle lemon and spice flavors linger on the tongue. My colleague, cultivation editor Nico Escondido says, “A subtle citrus aroma compliments the fuller Haze smell that comes out of each nugget.” The high hits the body first and then the head for a long-lasting and pleasing stone.
She’s a heavy feeder, so don’t skimp on the nutrients when growing this variety (also available in feminized form).
