Lemon Meringue by Exotic Genetix
The name says it all with this one: the Lemon Meringue strain created by professional breeders at Exotic Genetix is one heck of a sweet treat made by crossing the Lemon Skunk and Cookies and Cream strains. It is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is packed full of flavour. Just like a real lemon meringue pie, this dank bud offers a nice balance of sweet and sour with predominantly citrus notes. Like many sativas, Lemon Meringue by Exotic Genetix gives users a boost of energy that is great for socializing with friends or focus-oriented tasks, though it also offers a balance of nice indica effects such as feelings of relaxation. You get the best of both worlds when smoking this delicious dessert strain!
The high with Lemon Meringue can kick in pretty quick, almost after the first few minutes or tokes and an uplifting, energizing sensation can be felt. This can help with increased productivity as users are stimulated mentally. It can help provoke conversations, sociability and creativity, so is great for daytime use, when hanging out with friends or alone in a creative mood. Taking on some effects from its indica lineage, Lemon Meringue can also be mildly physically relaxing without tiring you out or making you feel lazy. This combination of effects can alleviate depression or stress because of the upbeat high, and is particularly helpful for those with ADD/ADHD due to the heightened sense of focus. The mild body relaxation can also be beneficial for minor aches, sores or cramps. The smoke with this strain is thick and heavy, and this paired with its soury lemon notes–which can be tasted upon exhale–can cause coughing or make your eyes water, a small price to pay for its enjoyable high!
Lemon Meringue by Exotic Genetix averages a THC content level of 18%-23%, and carries a dominant sativa ratio of 70% to 30% indica. For those who particularly enjoy this lemon pie strain, it can be further experienced with the concentrate Lemon Meringue Caviar by 91 Supreme for a stronger high. Or, dive into its familial lineage and try out one (or both!) of its parents: Lemon Skunk, which averages 15%-22% with 60%:40% sativa to indica, and is also available in Shatter by Faded Extracts, and Cookies and Cream (also produced by Exotic Genetix) which is typically between 22%-26% in THC content with a well-balanced 50%:50% sativa to indica ratio.
Appearance & Aroma
Like its namesake implies, Lemon Meringue by Exotic Genetix is a tasty, delectable treat reminiscent of the creamy, citrus pie. While it does have zesty, sour notes of lemon, there is also a sweet vanilla nuttiness that complements the flavour profile and adds to the pastry dessert-like palette. There are also hints of a pungent skunkiness and earthiness carried from its predecessor, Lemon Skunk, that can balance out the sweetness. The strain’s appearance can be characterized by dense green and orange nugs that are covered in a nice, thick layer of sticky, sparkling trichome crystals–it is as delicious and mouth-watering as it looks!
