Bred by Green Lantern Seeds, Lemon Diesel is the child of California Sour and Lost Coast OG. This cannabis strain grows tall with dense buds, and usually fills in most during the last couple weeks of growth. Its leaves are long and broad with purple-gray color during maturity. Flowering time is generally 9-10 weeks. The buds have been described as smelling fruity and sweet, with a hint of a skunk. The smell and flavor have been likened to citrus and pepper, with effects that can “sneak up” on its consumer. Lemon Diesel was in the Top Ten at the Emerald Cup in 2010.
Lemon Diesel, also called Lemon Sour Diesel, roared to life when Northern California’s Emerald Triangle crossed an OG (Pakistani x Lemon Thai x Chemdawg #4, aka Lost Coast OG) with its own California Sour. The genetics combined to create a flavor-laden strain with about 15-20% THC, according to Amsterdam Seeds.
