Super Lemon Haze Terpene Strain-Profile | Get to Know Your Favorite Strain

The Super Lemon Haze Terpene Strain-Profile is famous for it's focus-inducing effects and citrusy flavor

The award-winning Super Lemon Haze strain packs one heck of a punch, so it’s not for the faint of heart. 

For anyone looking for a mood-boosting, motivational cannabis experience, look no further than Super Lemon Haze. Its zesty flavor will put a pep in your step, but if you can’t hold your cannabis then this Sativa dominant hybrid might turn pep into paranoia. Lovers of this strain, however, swear by its ability to reduce fatigue, anxiety, and stress.

Before we jump in too deep, we want to remind everyone that our terpenes are cannabis free and 100% legal. However, we do work very hard to isolate the specific terpene profiles of popular strains so that both cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from them. 

We’ll talk a bit about the actual cannabis strain, but we also want to highlight the bright, citrusy terpene profile that Super Lemon Haze possesses. So, without further ado, here are some of the reasons you should consider experimenting with this particular strain.

The aroma of Super Lemon Haze smells of pine and citrus - Abstrax Tech

For those of you on the go, here’s a quick summary of what we’ll be covering today:

  1. The terpene profile of Super Lemon Haze is primarily made up of beta-caryophyllene, terpinolene, humulene, and myrcene.
  2. Due to its unique blend of cannabinoids and terpenes, this strain is notorious for its creative and energetic, yet relaxing, effects. 
  3. This strain is a favorite for anyone trying to relieve pain and gain more energy, without the sedative qualities of more Indica-dominant strains.
  4. Super Lemon Haze is surprisingly easy to cultivate, so long as its environment is well controlled.

Super Lemon Haze Terpene Profile

You might assume that this strain would be flush with D-Limonene (a notoriously citrus-scented terpene isolate). While it does contain d-limonene, the dominant terpenes are actually Beta-Caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Humulene, and Myrcene. As you can see from the terpene chart below, this unique blend makes for a taste that’s both tart and sweet, with an aroma that’s still citrusy with an almost peppery finish.

The terpene beta-caryophyllene is where Super Lemon Haze gets its spicier, earthy aroma from. This isn’t surprising considering that you can find beta-caryophyllene in black pepper, cloves, black caraway, basil, oregano, cinnamon, and more. This terpene is an anti-inflammatory, but it’s also antibacterial and has been used for centuries as a powerful analgesic.

Terpinolene adds an herbal layer to the overall Super Lemon Haze experience. Found in tea tree, lilac, cumin, nutmeg, and even apples, this terpene has a complex aroma that’s both woody and citrusy at the same time. Like beta-caryophyllene, this terpene is also anti-bacterial. However, it also has subtle sedative qualities that make it useful as an anxiolytic or sleep aid. These properties are part of what makes this strain great for treating anxiety and/or depression.

Also known as alpha-caryophyllene, humulene is most memorable for its “hops” aroma. In fact, it’s actually this terpene that’s responsible for the heady aroma that so many people associate with beer. It has a potent earthy flavor with woody notes and is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and pain reliever.

And lastly, myrcene is one of those terpenes that perfectly blend to create unique, memorable scents. Found in hops, lemongrass, eucalyptus, and mango, its flavor is both sweet and minty with leafy, vegetal notes. While it’s also an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic, one of its most useful features is its ability to boost the effectiveness of other terpenes and cannabinoids. 

Myrcene has a special relationship with the blood-brain barrier. It increases the permeability of that barrier so more terpenes and cannabinoids can get through. So, myrcene is like a friend who’s tight with a club bouncer (thanks, myrcene!).

The Super Lemon Haze Effect

When we say this is an award-winning strain, we’re not kidding. When Super Lemon Haze was entered into the High Times Cannabis Cup, it managed to take home first place in both 2008 and 2009. Not only that, the following year it won first prize in the IC420 Growers Cup as well. And it’s effects are a huge part of its success.

All of those beautiful terpenes blend harmoniously together to create a truly unique experience. Plus, with THC counts reaching as high as 25 percent, the effects of its terpenes are pretty high powered. Lovers of this strain describe it as a motivational and creative experience. These cerebral qualities are perfectly balanced by a relaxing body buzz that makes this strain perfect for daily errands, creative downtime, or maybe even an intense gym session.

Those using this strain for its more therapeutic properties experience elevated moods, less anxiety, muscle relaxation, and appetite stimulation. It’s high beta-caryophyllene content also makes it a phenomenal pain reliever. This is great news for chronic pain sufferers looking for less pain and more energy without the sedative qualities of more Indica-dominant strains. Many also utilize this strain to help with mood disorders like depression, anxiety, or even PTSD. 

While it is a relaxing strain, caution should be used if you’re sensitive to THC. Strains with a much higher THC to CBD ratio can sometimes exacerbate anxiety and paranoia. To avoid that, it may be helpful to have a CBD vape pen handy to regulate psychoactive effects. So, if you’re feeling a little too high, CBD can help mellow you out.

Its powerful effects aren’t surprising when you consider its incredible lineage. The original breeder started with Super Lemon Haze and then bred with Lemon Skunk. The combination of such heady strains is what created the citrusy, mood-boosting, chill-inducing strain we know today as Super Lemon Haze.


Super Lemon Haze Cultivation

Due to its high THC count and potential health benefits, any grower would be lucky to cultivate this strain. Plus, its therapeutic benefits are reliable enough that first-time buyers quickly become repeat customers. Plus, it’s surprisingly high yielding and relatively easy to grow.

While it can successfully grow both indoors and outdoors, a controlled indoor environment helps fully express the terpene profile of this strain. That means a more distinct aroma with more noticeable effects. 

Like most sativas, this plant will require enough indoor space to accommodate its considerable height. Both hydroponics and soil methods work well, but using a nutrient-rich soil will result in a more developed, rich flavor. If you elect to grow outdoors, Super Lemon Haze prefers more Mediterranean climates with a mixture of sun and shade.

The flowering time averages between nine and ten weeks. For each plant grown outdoors, you can expect roughly 35 ounces. For indoor plants, each square meter will produce roughly 28 ounces. So, while the indoor, soil method will result in a danker bud, you won’t get as much finished product. However, this is one instance where quality definitely beats out quantity. 

In the end, you should have neon or light green colored buds coated with a considerable layer of crystalline, resinous trichomes. Honestly, she’s gorgeous. Good looks aside, Super Lemon Haze is also particularly resistant to mold, bugs, certain mildews, and diseases. 

Did anyone else just swoon, or was that just us?
