Lemon Shining Silver Haze is a 75% sativa strain that was bred by crossing Lemon Skunk and Amnesia Haze. It produces good yields, high levels of THC and a deliciously complex aroma and flavour.
Lemon Shining Silver Haze is able to be cultivated indoors and outdoors in mild climates which would include the majority of northern continental Europe. When grown indoors plants will grow to a height of between 80 - 140 cm, depending on the length of the vegetative growth period, and will produce 425 - 475 gr/m2 under 600 watt lighting in a 8 - 9 week flowering period. Outdoor plants will grow taller, at 130 - 170 cm, and will easily produce around 500 gr/plant although given good conditions and experienced hands as much as 1000 gr/plant is possible. Harvest in northern latitudes will be in the middle of October.
The mature buds of this strain are large, long and, typical of such an overwhelmingly sativa-dominant strain, are quite fluffy, especially in comparison with dense, indica buds. They are a lime green colour flecked with a plethora of red hairs and loaded with THC-producing trichomes. Its aroma is an intoxicating fusion of sour, dank, Skunk-y, citrus-fuelled funk albeit with fresh, sweet notes. These qualities follow through onto the palate with the terpene limonene adding a lemon-candy aspect. It will certainly activate and stimulate the taste receptors!
Lemon Shining Silver Haze has an average THC level of 21% with some samples reading as high as 25%. CBD is low at 0.88% which helps to explain the soaring, euphoric, psychedelic high that this weed provokes. It is a very active strain for both mind and body and smokers report an increase in energy levels and creativity - a boon to busy modern lifestyles. It certainly boosts feelings of well-being and boosts optimism. Due to its energising effect it is not a strain to enjoy just before bed time as sleep is unlikely to follow very quickly.
Cannabis Cup winning strain.
