Lemon Drop Highlights
Introduction: Lemon Drop CBD Review
Cultivated indoors, this sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain delivers a tart, lip-puckering flavor and a sharpened focus and energy to your day. If you enjoyed lemon drops as a kid, this strain will definitely remind you of its candied namesake. Nobody has been able to trace the CBD lemon drop’s genetics far enough back to identify the parent strains. We do know that it was originally cultivated on the West Coast of the United States.
Flavor Profile, Aroma, & Appearance of Lemon Drop CBD Strain
Lemon, sweet and sour candy, and an undercurrent of diesel typify this strain. While many Cannaflower strains boast citrusy aromas and flavor profiles, such as Sour Space Candy and Hawaiian Haze, Lemon Drop is by far the most pronounced fruit-forward strain.
This is not a rough smoke and is an easier strain for those not accustomed to smoking. The smoke is both light and does not linger in your mouth or lungs. A great strain for a novice hemp smoker.
The Lemon Drop hemp strain can be easily cultivated either indoors or outdoors. Its pale green buds are smaller in size than you will see with the other indoor strains available from Cannaflower, but regardless of their size, these buds are dripping with an abundance of trichomes.
Terpenes & Cannabinoids in Lemon Drop Strain
Unsurprisingly, the terpene limonene presents highly in this CBD strain. This terpene is what dominates the flavor and provides the lemony, sour, and citrus aroma to this cultivar. Limonene is a dominant terpene in most any citrus fruits, including lemons, limes, and oranges.
Limonene has long been considered a ‘mood-booster’ and is a common terpene found in aromatherapy treatments to treat depression and anxiety..
Pinene has a considerable presence as well. Pinene provides that nostalgic whiff of pine forest, while providing anti-inflammatory properties to this strain.
The CBD content of Lemon Drop clocks in at 14.20%, making it a ‘middle weight’ amongst Cannaflower’s strains. The THC content comes in at 0.11%: well below the federal THC limit of 0.3%.
Lemon Drop Effects
No ifs, ands, or buts, this is a daytime strain. Unlike our indica dominant indoor strains like Space Invader, this hemp flower strain will leave you awake, alert, and focused. People don’t report any negative side effects, but if all you are looking to do is relax and unwind at the end of the day, there are plenty of more fitting options.
Typically, Lemon Drop is taken to assist in activities, rather than aid in relaxation. Lemon Drop can mitigate stress and work-related anxiety, to help clear your mind and allow you to focus on the task at hand. Users report the effects of focus and relaxation come on almost instantaneously.
Similar CBD Hemp Flower Strains
Cannaflower boasts several citrusy, fruity low THC cannabis strains with high limonene content. If you love Lemon Drop and you’re looking for more fruit flavored hemp flower, we recommend giving Sour Space Candy and Hawaiian Haze a try.
If it’s the sour quality of Lemon Drop that you admire the most, you also might want to check out Sour Tsunami, another strain from our indoor line. Both of these strains blossom with a sweet pucker that always brings a smile.
