Captain’s Smoke Notes: Sour Lemon


The Smell: Sandalwood, Earthy, Berry, Pepper, Pine, Pineapple, Hash, Skunk, Citrus, Iron, Musk, Spice, Sour, Lemon, Sage, Thyme, Woody

The Smoke: This Sour Lemon, light green in colour with flecks of bright orange pistils and a heavy coating of resin, initially brings a sweet and sour lemon flavour with a slight bitter edge reminding me of the hard candies, lemon sherbets or a batch of cloudy lemonade that hasn’t been mixed with quite enough sugar.

Following this I found it to have a tone reminiscent of a White Widow by bringing a musky peppery bite to the table which brought the whole thing together beautifully.

Further down the joint it began to pick up a mild woody hash tone and echoes of floral berry before finally reverting back to the peppery lemon flavour for the final few pulls.

Straight away the Sativa dominant high went straight to my head and sat there swimming behind my eyes and temples, in higher doses this was almost dizzying in effect.

I found Sour Lemon to be a fantastic strain which instantly eased my anxiety, within a couple of pulls, all my jitters had fizzled away to nothing leaving me feeling calm and relaxed. This lasted for over an hour but continues to maintain on a lower level for much longer after, a trait I’m very grateful for.

Another trait I’m very grateful for is it’s ability to increase my blood circulation which in turn, allows my ice cold feet to begin to warm up which is something I constantly have to deal with.

I’ve also found this great at giving me the motivation to get out and do something productive and so I’ve been in the garden all day planting and repotting my veg plot which is something I’ve been putting off for too long.

Final Comments: I am thoroughly enjoying this Sour Lemon and everything this strain is doing to me. It’s perfect for starting the day with and continuing through if you fancy getting a little messy as this does come with quite the kick.

This is my first encounter with this strain and I’m already making room in my garden. I’m a sucker for my Lemon strains and this one is spot on :)
