Sour Lemon OG

Sour Lemon OG

Take something sour and lemony and combine it with one of the most exceptional families of cannabis. It seems to be the case when it comes to Sour Lemon OG. Bred by Emerald Triangle Seeds, this strain is their take on the legendary OG lineage.

One of the strains used to develop Sour Lemon OG is California Sour. Contrary to its name, it traces its genetic roots from a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani Indica. Among its most notable traits is its ability to induce a clear-headed high with a sharper focus.

The other parent strain is Lemon OG Kush, a hybrid that comes with a legendary pedigree. It comes from a lineage of two prominent family of hybrids – Skunk and OG. Besides its fruity and skunky aroma, its psychoactive properties are also among its more prominent attributes. Often, it induces a dreamy but buzzing head high that has fascinated users since its debut.

Using these two, Emerald Triangle Seeds developed a strain that delivers an invigorating mind and body high. For daytime use, Sour Lemon OG is one of the best choices for cannabis users.
