Lime OG Strain

With the ever-growing list of strains, cultivators, and cross-breeding, tracing the origins of a strain is getting harder by the day, and the wacky names make it more challenging. Thankfully, there are still strains that give clues to their genetics, such as the Lime OG strain (aka Lime Kush). Although its origins are still murky, the name gives clues to its lineage, leaving little doubt about its parent strains. 

As always, the ILGM research team does its best to keep all information correct and up to date, and as you’d imagine, some details may take a lot of work to come by. So let’s bust out that bong and see what the fuss is about.

Lime OG strain genetics

Since the original creator is still up for debate, Lime OG strain info is sparse regarding its origins. However, it’s believed to be a cross of Lime Skunk with either Triple OG or OG Kush. This is the genetic recipe Exotic Genetix used to formulate their version of Lime OG strain genetics, pollinating a Lime Skunk female with a Triple OG male. There are other versions of the Lime OG weed strain; however, the Exotic Genetics strain seems to be the most widely recognized. 

Lime OG strain’s strong citrus flavor and aroma come from its mother strain, Lime Skunk. Lime Skunk is a blend of Lemon Skunk with a backcross of Green Ribbon and is a 50:50 hybrid with a mid-range THC level of around 17%. Lime Skunk delivers an energizing high packed with focus and motivation that rounds off with a relaxing buzz.  

Lime OG strains’ paternal genetics come from Triple OG, more commonly known as Triple Kush. This indica-heavy three-way is a blend of  Triangle Kush X Constantine X Master Yoda, and it packs a punch with its 20-30% THC average. It’s certainly not the bud to pick if you aim to get hyped up since the effects are incredibly relaxing and calming. You’ll chill out from its layered flavor of rich earth and fuel, accented by a spicy tone alongside sweet and sour notes. 

Is Lime OG strain indica or sativa?

Although Lime OG is an evenly balanced hybrid strain, its effects tend to lean towards the sativa side, leaving many consumers asking, “Is Lime OG strain sativa or indica?” Lime OG has a 50:50 balance like its mother strain, although its father strain is heavily indica with effects to match.

Growing Lime OG strain

The Lime OG cannabis strain can be cultivated indoors and outdoors. It responds well to multiple tops with natural resilience, withstanding high winds and temperature changes. Indoor cultivators of the strain have also reported growing it hydroponically with great success. 

The Lime OG strain tends to grow into medium-height bushy plants with thick foliage and dense olive-green nuggets. The buds are heart-shaped and frosted in a thick coating of crystal trichomes intertwined with bright amber hairs. Currently, Lime OG strain seeds are unavailable online, leaving growers to find alternate sourcing methods, which may affect the Lime OG strain price. 

Lime OG strain flowering time

The Lime OG marijuana strain has a relatively short flowering time of approximately 56-63 days. Outdoor growers in the northern hemisphere can expect to harvest around early to mid-October.

Lime OG strain autoflowering time

The autoflowering version of the Lime OG strain, like most autoflowers, starts blooming very early. Because it doesn’t require light deprivation to start flowering, expect the first buds to appear after four to six weeks. Lime OG autoflowers can be harvested after ten to fourteen weeks.

Lime OG strain yield

The average yield of any cannabis plant depends on several factors, including the skill of the cultivator, growing conditions, strain genetics, and size and health of the plant. It also differs between photoperiod and autoflower plants. However, you can use general estimates as a potential yield per plant guideline. 

For photoperiod plants, this is 16-64 ounces (450-1814 grams) outdoors and 8-24 ounces (227-680 grams) indoors.

Lime OG strain autoflower yield

The potential yield per plant for autoflowering plants is 1.7-7 ounces (50-200g) outdoors and 1.7-4.2 ounces (50-120 grams) indoors.

Lime OG strain effects

Consumers report that Lime OG strain effects are pleasant and surprisingly long-lasting, providing a buzz that’ll keep you going all day. Lime OG strain THC level averages between 15% and 20%, making it manageable in small doses for newbies while hitting the spot for veteran smokers. 

Fans of this strain say it’s great for daytime smoking, pumping you up with energy and motivation while keeping clear-headed and focused. The buzz eventually levels out to a calm, relaxed plateau allowing the body relaxation part to kick in, easing you into your evening.  

With its mentally uplifting and mood-boosting effects, many have found solace in the Lime OG strain, helping them deal with the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and fatigue. Others have used it to ease their chronic pain and cramps, as well as helping to manage ADD and ADHD. There are mild negatives, such as dry eyes and mouth, hunger, and thirst. If you are sensitive to THC, it may be best to pace your consumption. 

Lime OG strain terpenes

The layers of delectable flavors in the Lime OG strain are well-balanced, letting you enjoy a flavorful smoking experience to accompany your buzz. Its flavor is similar to sour lime candy-meets-musk, a sharp citrus terpene flavor paired with the thick, full-bodied kush elements. 

Caryophyllene introduces a spicy element while not overshadowing the pine and floral notes. The myrcene and limonene terpenes that give their flavor to the Lime OG strain are also known for their calming and soothing effects. Terpinolene delivers a woody and floral element while adding antibacterial and sedating properties.
