Before continuing, let’s take a look at its genetic lineage.
DNA Genetics use two strains from the family of Skunk that has the distinct lemon scents – Lemon Skunk. As one can imagine, the contrasting lemony and skunky odor blends are both unique and desirable at the same time. Even better, it delivers a buzzing euphoric high.
Green Ribbon, on the other hand, was bred by Exotic Genetix. What it does really well is in delivering an energizing buzz.
In combining these two strains into one plant, the original breeder of Lime Skunk has taken the best of both strains.
But there is another variant of this strain that goes by the same name. This one is different in that it used Super Skunk and Northern Lights No. 5 to create a hybrid that caters to the medical cannabis community.
Both are really great strains, but for this article, we are focusing on the one that originated from Lemon Skunk x Green Ribbon.

Lime Skunk, by all accounts, is a pretty much straightforward hybrid. It is not the fastest and definitely not a creeper. Instead, use it, and in moments, users feel its uplifting buzz gently manifest itself. Gradually, too, it swings the mood from sour to happiness. It may also cause some people to feel extremely elated.
In most cases, people also feel energetic and motivated. And that is a good thing because, with a clearer mind and a boost in creativity, the best thing really is to do something about it. In other words, there are people who especially designers and artists who could use a little help and Lime Skunk can provide that.
As time passes, Lime Skunk also works itself down to the body. It helps users release the tensions from their muscles and relax. Even in such state, most users remain productive.
When one really thinks about the effects of Lime Skunk, one could argue that it is not remarkable at all.
But it is in being “ordinary” that makes it unique. There is none of the insane buzzing cerebral high that causes mental confusion or foggy mind. At no time will users have a psychoactive experience. Even as it helps users feel good about themselves and completely at ease, it does not cause a couch-lock.
The idea of using skunk strain as one of its parents is a sound one. After all, that line is exceptionally remarkable. But by choosing those with a lemony scent, it is evident with this strain. However, the skunky smell remains pungent. Some people may need to take a little bit of time before getting used to it.
So, Lime Skunk does have a few side effects. Like most of its traits, there are also no surprises here. Of course, there is dry mouth and eyes that is expected with using any type of cannabis.
Such symptoms often appear as one uses a little too much. Also, it may also cause some people to feel dizzy. In some instances, it is also known to have caused a few people to feel a little more anxious than usual.
The great thing about Lime Skunk is that it does have a potent Indica effect. Not that it causes a numbing sensation to leave one on a couch, but it is more than enough to provide pain relief.
Feeling uplifted, happy, or even euphoric while in a state of complete relaxation, it is easy to see how it helps in stress relief. Because of that, people with mental health issues may also find a degree of comfort using Lime Skunk.
There are also other reports where the strain was helpful in easing the symptoms of headaches. It may also help people deal with gastrointestinal problems including feeling nauseous.
