Ultra Lemon Haze: Result of award winning genetics
Ultra Lemon Haze is an autoflowering, sativa dominant strain that remains at a manageable size throughout the grow cycle. The stain is the result of crossbreeding between parent strains Lemon Haze, Sour Diesel and Auto 1. This mixture combines indica, sativa and cannabis ruderalis genetics. Ultra Lemon Haze has quite an impressive family tree, with its parent strain Lemon Haze being a Cannabis Cup winner.
When inhaling joints, bongs and blunts filled with Ultra Lemon Haze smokers will be pleasantly surprised by the delightful tastes this strain has to offer. The taste is sharp and offers hints of citrus, lemon and grapefruit. This stunning taste is accompanied by a desirable high that is characterised by an uplifting cerebral buzz that is typical of sativa dominant strains.
The energetic and creative sides of the high are nicely balanced by indica tones that help to induce relaxation. If enough is consumed then the high starts to become quite powerful and borders on the psychedelic.
When growing a crop of Ultra Lemon Haze the mix in genetics becomes apparent. The leaves show typical sativa traits and feature narrow and long shapes. If you are growing this strain indoors in a grow tent or grow room then you can expect to see plants reach heights of around 70cm. Autoflowering strains of cannabis are usually very easy to grow as they don’t require a change in the light cycle in order to start flowering.
However, Ultra Lemon Haze isn’t a standard autoflowering variety due to the very small amount of cannabis ruderalis genetics present within plants. This strain will require a photo period of 12-16 hours. When growing indoors, the flowering time lasts between 65 – 70 days.
If you have access to an outdoor space within a good climate and choose to cultivate in a garden bed or gorilla grow location you can expect plants to reach heights of up to 100cm. When growing outdoors plants will go from seed to harvest in around 80 – 100 days.
