Lemon Meringue is a potent, full-flavored sativa created by inventive breeders Exotic Genetix. This strain combines the genetics of Lemon Skunk and Cookies and Cream, resulting in a bud that’s a treat for the eyes as well as the palate. Lemon Meringue’s high offers energy and mental acuity, with THC content measured between 18% and a surging 28%. Lemon Meringue, not to be confused with the like-named “Lemon Meringue Pie,” and also known as “Lemon Mirengue”, is a sativa dominant hybrid strain (70% sativa/30% indica) created through crossing the infamous Lemon Skunk X Cookies ‘N Cream strains.
Lemon Meringue Appearance & Taste
Named for its delectable lemony flavor, Lemon Meringue brings on the creamy delicious tastes alongside a focused and long-lasting high that will have you feeling lifted for hours on end before fading away into a sleepy comedown. Lemon Meringue has a delicious nutty fruity flavor with a light creamy lemon exhale. The aroma is earthy and spicy with a sweet lemony overtone that turns pungent and skunky as the nugs are broken apart and burned. Lemon Meringue buds have small airy minty green nugs with yellow-orange hairs and a thick blanketed coating of tiny golden white crystal trichomes.
Lemon Meringue is distinguished by medium to large flowers that maintain a chunky and roughly spherical shape. These buds have the solid, dense internal structure more often seen in indica varieties, with broad leaves that twist tightly inward. The leaves are a bright yellowish green and are punctuated by several curly yellow pistils. A high concentration of resinous trichomes makes these flowers very sticky and gives them a pale, slightly dewy appearance. An initial inspection of buds will register the strong scent of citrus, while a deeper whiff may pick up an overly fruity, almost fermented aroma. Breaking apart or grinding up these flowers yields a pungent tang that likely passed on from grandparent strain Skunk. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Lemon Meringue burns with a heavy, sour smoke that’s liable to cause a coughing fit or watery eyes, but has a sweet, lemony flavor on the exhale.
Lemon Meringue Effects
The high from Lemon Meringue kicks in fairly quickly, sometimes striking users before they’ve even finished coughing on its thick smoke. At first, it can exert head-focused effects like a constricted “headband”-like feeling around the temples and lower forehead. After those sensations die down, users may find themselves in an elevated headspace where ideas may take on a new intensity. Smokers may find themselves interested in concepts, or even inanimate objects, that might not otherwise fascinate them. This mental stimulation can facilitate productivity on all kinds of tasks, whether they’re detail-oriented and analytical or more freewheeling and creative. Those who don’t have as much to do, can simply daydream or enjoy free-flowing conversation with likeminded friends.
As this high wears on, its activated and energetic mood tends to persist. While smokers may experience some mild relaxation or relief from muscular tension, they aren’t typically incapacitated by these physical sensations. In fact, Lemon Meringue’s blend of physical and mental effects can enhance activities that involve complex coordination — including sex, given the right company. Because of its mostly upbeat vibe, Lemon Meringue is appropriate for daytime or early evening consumption.
Lemon Meringue’s dynamic high can also be useful to medical cannabis patients. Its cerebral edge can help those with ADD to focus better on one task at a time and its steady feelings of euphoria can help alleviate some symptoms of stress and depression. On the physical end of the spectrum, Lemon Meringue can also soothe aches and pains, whether it’s temporary injury or chronic conditions like COPD or lupus. Its anti-inflammatory properties can even lessen the severity of common discomforts like nausea or cramps. Lemon Meringue’s sense of mind race can be disorienting in the wrong set and setting and may not be the best option for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
