A Loss Of Appetite
Winning first prize for two consecutive years (2008 and 2009) in the High Times Cannabis Cup and taking home first prize the following year at the IC420 Growers Cup, Super Lemon Haze is quickly becoming a highly recognizable strain.
In its true form Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa dominant hybrid created by Arjan of Green House Seeds. The breeder began with a female from his infamous Super Silver Haze genetics – which won three consecutive Cannabis Cups in 1997, 1998 and 1999 – and carefully bred this with a 3-way cross of Haze, Skunk #1 and Northern Lights #5.
Arjan then bred that by-product with the more popular Lemon Skunk – a strain that made its way from Las Vegas to Amsterdam by way of a breeder named The Lemon Man – to get the Super Lemon Haze you see today in dispensaries throughout the West Coast.
