In the mid-2000s, DNA Genetics began experimenting with new cannabis hybrid combinations. In 2005, using two phenotypes of the Skunk strain that displayed exceptionally strong lemon traits, DNA Genetics first created Lemon Skunk. Subsequently, Lemon Skunk went on to win first place at the 2007 Outdoor Highlife Cup.
The following year, the Lemon Skunk strain also won first place for Indoor Hydro Spannabis and second place in the IC420 Breeders Cup. Its quick popularity and notoriety helped spread the new hybrid throughout Europe. However, DNA Genetics retained the vast majority of the initial cultivation to ensure its quality.
Today, Lemon Skunk is one of the most popular strains for both recreational and medical users. Its lemon flavor and potential energizing high are great for both cannabis connoisseurs and first-time users. Additionally, Lemon Skunk is widely available throughout the world, giving millions of people easy access to an already popular strain.
