Super Lemon Haze Overview
Super Lemon Haze (sometimes referred to as SLH) is a sativa-dominant hybrid flower originally bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seed Co. Its parents are the equally popular “Lemon Skunk” and “Super Silver Haze”. And it’s the perfect compromise and blend between its parents.
This strain sits at 80% sativa and 20% indica. Despite this, it provides a fairly balanced effect with an initial indica hit that moves into a strong sativa high. With a THC content of over 20%, Super Lemon Haze provides even the most experienced users a fantastic experience.
While SLH has a pretty high THC content, its CBD content is only at around 0.1%.
Super Lemon Haze is also the parent strain for two other strains: Citrus Sunshine Haze and Super Lemon OG. So keep an eye out for those too!

Passed its glistening outer-layer, its colour is a very light and bright green with complimentary orange pistils throughout.
