DNA Genetics is a US seed bank that is tireless in the search for the perfect cannabis strain. This time it brings us a hybrid with a spectacular taste, as we are used to, but Lemon 18 has many other remarkable features, so I invite you to know it a little better.
What genetics are involved?
Its mother is the Lemon Chem, an elite clone that mixes the great Larry OG and already stands out for its citrus aroma and flavor. Its father is the OG # 18, in this case has reversed the cutting to pollinate the Lemon Chem and thus have feminized seeds of their offspring, you can imagine how it will be, right? Well, I'll tell you...
What is Lemon 18 like in general?
The sativa part is slightly predominant in the crossing, about 60% compared to 40% of indica. It develops a structure with medium-thick stems but quite strong, allowing you to mold to some extent, but in flowering are able to support the weight of the buds it produces.
As with all the offspring of the OG #18 stallion, the resin level of Lemon 18 is awesome, perfect for producing both return and quality extractions. Its organoleptic quality is inherited by the mother, so we can say that it is a plant that merges very well the characteristics of its parents.
How is it grown indoors and outdoors?
Try to give the maximum light power you can in indoor cultivation, it is a strain that appreciates the lumens, you need them to perform at maximum. As with other Kush varieties, the Lemon 18 lends itself very well to the "SCROG" technique and we think it may be the method that best expresses its performance. If you prefer to do so, keep in mind that you can put 4 plants in 6.6 US gal (25 litre) pots per 3x3ft (m2) with 1 month of growth. If you want to save some time, you can also put 9 copies / 3x3ft (m2) and in 20 days will have filled the growing area and you can switch to flowering earlier.
Outdoors try to plant it somewhere that has a great sun exposure, and if you want it to become very big it germinates in early spring. Try to do several prunings during the first 2 or 3 months of life, to contain its height and promote lateral growth, and don't forget to place stakes to support the branches when they are loaded with flowers.
When is harvest time for Lemon 18?
Cultivated indoors needs about 9 weeks of flowering, but if you want a less narcotic effect you can harvest it a little earlier.
In outdoor or greenhouse crops you must cut it between 5 and 20 October in the northern hemisphere, and if you grow it in the southern hemisphere between 5 and 20 April, in this case you can also play a little with the harvest date.
How is the production of this plant?
Bud production is medium/high, around 15.8-17.6 oz per 3x3ft (450-500 grams/m2) in indoor crops and around 24.7 oz (700 grams) outdoors. The resin yield is brutal, another feature inherited from #18, as well as the production of cannabinoids, very high.
What does feminized Lemon 18 smell and taste like?
I'm sure you've guessed that already, right? That's right, these seeds seem to have come straight out of a lemon tree, because its flower smells totally like lemon. In the flavor you can appreciate other nuances linked to the citrus, it has an earthy point that modulates its great taste and hashish touches that are appreciated especially when exhaling.
What kind of effect can we expect?
Although the Indica part clearly prevails, at the beginning it causes a strong euphoric high and a lot of brain activity. But you have not yet finished smoking and you already feel what is coming, because the body starts to weigh more than usually, relaxing muscles and joints until you practically stop feeling them.
It is an effect with high therapeutic value, especially for people who require tranquilizers, analgesics or other medicines to relax or sleep.
