About Lemon Zest Strain
Lemon Zest Strain No longer just an aromatic garnish or ingredient, Lemon Zest is also the name of a sativa-dominant hybrid devised by Wolf Genetics. While this strain’s genetic background has been kept proprietary by its creators, it’s clear that Lemon Zest offers a strong citrus aroma and potent, high-flying effects. Its THC content ranges from 19% to 24%.
Flowers of Lemon Zest are distinguished by a medium to large size and maintain a long almost cylindrical shape. The leafy columns have the fairly loose and open internal structure that is common to most sativa-leaning strains. The leaves are a mossy, yellowish green and are threaded through with a high volume of orange pistils with an even higher concentration of translucent, icy-looking trichomes.
A first inspection of Lemon Zest’s flowers will pick up on notes of fresh citrus, but a closer whiff detects some dank, earthy scents, redolent of damp soil or leaves. When the buds are pulled apart or ground up, they can give off more of a rich, sandalwood-like odor, perhaps suggesting descendants from a staple indica like Afghani. Burning in a pipe or joint, this strain gives off a smooth and surprisingly palatable smoke, that when exhaling, carries a sour, fruity flavor and leaves behind a creamy mouthfeel.
