Lemon Diesel Strain History
Lemon Diesel is a full-bodied 70/30 indica hybrid cannabis strain. Green Lantern Seeds created this one by crossing Lost Coast OG with a California Sour. In the ever-changing cannabis market, Lemon Diesel continues to attract fans with her fuel-like aroma and impressive body high. Lemon Diesel ranked in the top 10 at the 2010 Emerald Cup, one of the most demanding growing competitions in North America. As well as that, one of the great things about LD is the well formulated high that it produces. Thus, not too strong for beginners but just the right blend of happy and upbeat vibes with a generally chillaxed effect.
Lemon Diesel buds are small and compact like a tiny house loaded with honeyed crystals. The flowers are sea green with purple/gray leaves and painted with marigold orange colored hairs.
Immediately, an unmistakable sour lemon skunkiness excites the senses on the first sniff. Squeezing the buds unleashes the petrol-like aroma typical to the Sour Diesel family strains. The first puff reveals a complex salty lemon and spicy diesel taste that leaves you hooked.

Growing Lemon Diesel Seeds
It should be noted that LD is a mostly indica cannabis strain and flowers in 56-63 days or by mid-October when grown outside. In addition, the average outdoor yield is a legit 23-28oz/plant. Indoor plants require 8-10 weeks of flowering and produce 16oz/m2. The dense bud structure of Lemon Diesel makes it well-suited for the SOG or SCROG growing techniques. For instance, growing with this method is great for gardeners with smaller garden spaces or several growing tables. Lemon Diesel grows to an average height of 4 feet. The plants’ lime green colas are medium-sized but very dense. Eventually, as the plant matures, its long yellow-green pistils turn to dark amber. Lemon Diesel plants thrive both indoors and out, with resistance to most common pests and mold.
