In the heart of historic Downtown Haverhill, Massachusetts, Stem thrives as a cozy and welcoming woman-owned adult-use dispensary, featuring a wide variety of locally-sourced Cannabis items available for purchase. One such product, the Lemon Meringue flowers grown by Revolutionary Clinics, is quickly becoming our “wake and bake” go-to for early morning inspiration and motivation.
This sativa-dominant hybrid cross of Lemon Skunk and Cookies & Cream boasts bright green, tight nuggets with vibrant orange hairs. The first sniff is overwhelmingly citrus, with a strong scent of freshly cut lemons and the tartness of sour cherries – while a light squeeze reveals floral undertones of honeysuckle.
The Lemon Meringue buds break up into the perfect consistency, properly cured and not too dry or moist. A dry hit on a joint tastes slightly mentholated, with a whiff of eucalyptus underneath the prevalent sweet candy flavor. We paired ours with seltzer on ice with lime, and the combination proved perfect.
Immediately upon lighting and inhaling, a brisk feeling of energy and creativity began to swell within. This inspired motivational spirit continued to increase, culminating in a sublime feeling of mental clarity. Stress and fatigue faded away and we were emboldened to get outside and keep moving. Combined with the increase in appetite and vigor, the lively effects of this seductive strain make it a perfect daytime smoke.
Intrigued? Then stop by Stem – an eclectic mom n’ pop weed shop in the Merrimack Valley – and try some Lemon Meringue for yourself.
