2020 may be the year that the whole world was given an abundance of lemons, but us ingenuitive stoners know that Cannabis is the best medicine to help turn sour lemons into an uplifting buzz.
Lemon Meringue is more than just a celebrated pie. This euphoric strain was created by crossing Lemon Skunk with Cookies and Cream for a delicious flavor that melts into the mouth like a sugary bite of Lemon Kush. Popping open a bag of this light green bud releases a bright and fresh zap of sweet citrus flavors, with an effervescent fizzyness that tickles the nose while breaking up a bowl. Frosty with trichomes and cured with care, the flower breaks up easily and is perfect for giant tokes of smokey dessert.
First tokes carry through the Cookies and Cream lineage, with a creamy earthiness that balances out the sweeter flavors and delivers a complex and lovely hit, tingling the palate on exhale. The smoke is extremely smooth and lightly expansive, filling the lungs with a warming energy that quickly heads into the mind. Known for energetic, pain relieving and euphoric effects, the Lemon Meringue is perfect for daytime use or whenever a pick-me-up is necessary.
While we are all fighting the quarantine blues and stress of uncertainty, it’s important to remember the little things and how lucky we are to see Cannabis as an essential business. This strain is a perfect mood elevator and the relaxing body effects will help make the day a little easier, and certainly stonier. With a happy high and a sweet flavor, enjoy the last bit of Summer vibes by indulging in a slice of Lemon Meringue – you’ve definitely earned dessert, adult-style.
