Lemon Kush is from the region of Chitral in Pakistan. It is an overwhelmingly indica-dominant marijuana strain with a very strong herbal lemon flavour and aroma.
Lemon Kush grows well indoors but is also suitable for warm climates outdoors. It is a medium-sized plant that grows to reach a height of 80 - 100 cm. It has a flowering time of about 60 days indoors where it would be advisable to use some air-filtration; if grown outdoors it should be ready for the chop at the end of September in northern latitudes. Yields are very good with up to 1000 gr/plant possible outdoors. The buds are dense, rock hard and white with resin.
The flavour is very rich, musky, lemon and herbal, quite powerful. The effect is surprisingly very much in the head and tends more towards a sativa high which is surprising given its provenance. The effect is also felt in the body and offers a warm, comfortable feeling. It has long been a favourite strain of the medical marijuana community in Holland since the early 1990s.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
