Lemon Poison is a hybrid strain whose progenitors are the popular Lemon G-13 and Durban Poison, which together create an amazing terpene profile. This strain has a 20–25% THC level and about 0.1% CBD content.

Its fluffy green buds have bright undertones and a thick coating of trichomes. If you seek a perfect balance between the energizing properties of sativa and the relieving effects of indica, Lemon Poison is your best bet.

Although we don't carry this exact strain at Botany Farms yet, we have several other CBD-rich hybrid strains with similar fruity tones to choose from.

Key Takeaways

  • Lemon Poison is a hybrid strain, a cross between Lemon G-13 and Durban Poison, known for its high THC level (20–25%) and low CBD content (about 0.1%).
  • It has a notable terpene profile that includes myrcene, limonene, caryophyllene, and terpinolene, contributing to its aromatic and citrusy flavor.
  • This strain is known for providing a vibrant high, inducing feelings of creativity, focus, and energy. 
  • Lemon Poison is a crossbreed of Lemon G-13 and Durban Poison.


Its lineage gives Lemon Poison a terpene profile that is hard to resist. With a list that includes myrcene, limonene, caryophyllene, and terpinolene, this strain is aromatic and has a nice citrusy flavor.

The distinct taste and aromas of this strain are citrus, sour, and spicy, with diesel and earthy notes to them. This combination makes it perfect for those who enjoy fruity flavors.


A vibrant high is something you rightfully expect from Lemon poison, thanks to its high THC levels. This euphoria makes you feel creative, focused, and energetic. However, its effects aren’t only mind-related.

Lemon Poison is a popular favorite among people with depression, fatigue, migraines, stress, and ADHD. For that reason, it is an excellent therapeutic aid for medical cannabis patients looking for alternative methods.

Regarding terpenes, myrcene contributes to muscle relaxation and has sedative effects. Limonene, a terpene commonly found in this strain, is a great antidepressant and uplifting terpene. In addition, terpinolene is full of sedative, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is the most common terpene in strains for anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia.

Finally, it contains caryophyllene, a terpene known for behaving like a cannabinoid since it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. This terpene has great anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.


Lemon G-13 and Durban Poison are the proud parents of this strain. If you mix a 70:30 sativa-indica ratio strain and a landrace sativa strain, the probabilities of getting a top-notch cannabis flower are pretty high.


Lemon G-13 is a sativa-dominant strain that originates from Ohio. Its consumption often generates feelings of euphoria, relaxation and creativity due to its 19% THC levels. This strain helps with stress, depression and pain reduction. On the other hand, some negative effects of Lemon G-13 are dry mouth and eyes.

Durban Poison is one of the most popular sativa strains. It comes from the South African city of Durban and has a strong sweet taste to it, combining some herbal and minty notes. It can have up to 24% THC presence, delivering energy, focus and productivity, which is a must-have for those who are constantly on the go.

Its chunky and round buds, enveloped in vibrant green, are known for providing stress relief without the feared paranoia that often comes with strains with high THC levels. This strain is often used for crossbreeding thanks to its amazing properties.

As a result, the great Lemon Poison has everything you need to get through the day and feel a dynamic energy inside you without the drowsy effects often found in strains with high THC levels.
