Ever since becoming a Florida medical cannabis patient, I’ve noticed that Trulieve would keep a couple of “lemon” strains in rotation, the other strain being Lemon Tree. Having fond memories of a Lemon Kush strain from my younger days, I’ve been eager to try another strain named after the yellow fruit. This past week, Trulieve restocked with Oregon Lemons (they would later stock Lemon Tree as well, but this was after my purchase was made). I picked up Oregon Lemons along with Sherbert and another batch of 9lb Hammer (all in TruFlower). Compared to the other hybrid strains that I’ve tried for Trulieve, Oregon Lemons seemed to be one of the more well balanced hybrids. I’ve enjoyed it so far; the effects are relaxing without being sedating.
Oregon Lemons (Hybrid)
Batch/Harvest Number: FFOBENT6QU000034 (that’s an “O” at the beginning and zeroes at the end)
640.5 mg THC/3.5g
3.5 mg CBD/3.5g
18.7% Total Cannabinoids
This batch was generally well-prepared, though it did seem to be ever-so-slightly on the dry side of the moisture spectrum. As far as appearance, Oregon Lemons is about as “middle of the road” as you can imagine in terms of aesthetic properties such as color, etc. The buds are a medium green that is actually fairly uniform throughout the particular batch I have. There are a few spots of lighter green, almost yellow; other than that, there isn’t much color variation in this strain. There are very tiny burnt orange/amber pistils that can be seen upon close inspection of the bud, and there is a fair amount of keif as well. This flower isn’t particularly dense, but it isn’t leafy or “disorganized” looking as some strains or purely-cured buds can be. Trulieve did a pretty good job curing this batch, but it isn’t necessarily aesthetically spectacular like some of their other strains I’ve reviewed. To their benefit, I care much more about the effects.
Oregon Lemons smells really nice. Think Sour Diesel with more citrus and less gas; I would use words like “bright”, “zesty”, “clean”, and “fresh” to describe the smell. Lemon isn’t necessarily the first scent I identified when I opened the jar; there’s more of a general “bright” citrus smell. After really digging in and taking some time with it, I could definitely detect a smell akin to a lemon dessert of some sort. It really did strike me as interesting as to how similar to Sour Diesel this batch smells – I like Sour Diesel, and I like Oregon Lemons for offering a similar smell and taste that lies on the “cleaner” side of the spectrum rather than “pungent”. The taste brings out some of the heavier kush-like undertones of this strain; overall, it made for an enjoyable experience when medicating with it. Definitely above average in this category; I think most patients will enjoy it for its smell and taste as well.
As I mentioned earlier in the review, Oregon Lemons is definitely one of the most balanced hybrid flower strains I have tried from Trulieve. The effects have a quick onset, maybe a minute or less from the first inhalation. I felt this one behind the eyes quite a bit; it creeps in around the face and really sets in with this warm comforting feeling. It’s not extremely heavy to the point that I would say it results in a couch lock every single time, but it definitely makes itself known throughout the body. I think this strain would be a great option for patients looking for physical relief from various ailments while still remaining lucid and able to perform various tasks. I’m currently writing this review while under the effects of Oregon Lemons, and am having almost no trouble retaining my train of thought and finding the words I need to express my thoughts. This strain could definitely put you down if consumed in high doses, though; I would recommend going slow if medicating early in the day or otherwise needing to complete any errands or other tasks. Oregon Lemons does not seem to give me any sort of anxiety like some strong sativas have the ability to do in high doses; instead, it creates a really mellow high that could have a variety of beneficial uses for Florida cannabis patients.
Possibly good for treating:
- Headaches or other minor body aches
- Relief of nausea or similar gastrointestinal symptoms
- Relief of mild anxiety
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Oregon Lemons had enjoyable effects. Middle-of-the-road strain from beginning to end.
Overall Rating: 3.67/5.00
Overall, I would best describe this strain as “slightly above average”.
While I enjoyed my experience with Oregon Lemons, it is not one of my favorite strains that Trulieve has had. It may be a magic bullet for others – that’s the beauty of this program; every strain and every product has the potential to benefit at least some percentage of patients. I’d definitely recommend this strain for at least one try. It wasn’t amazing, but it most certainly wasn’t terrible. I probably won’t get this one again, but it didn’t leave a bad taste in my mouth literally nor figuratively.
As always, I appreciate your taking time to read this review, and truly hope that it benefits at least one patient.
