Ah, Super Lemon Haze – also known as SLH. This strain is a bit nostalgic for me. You see, when I got my Florida Medical Cannabis card in mid-2018, Super Lemon Haze was the first strain I tried, in the form of a distillate vape cart.
A couple of years later in late 2020, VidaCann released the strain in flower form (review here.) As always, I like to compare the batches of a particular strain whenever I can find them at two different dispensaries/MMTCs, and that will be the case here as well.
Price at time of review: $43/eighth
After seeing Super Lemon Haze at both VidaCann and Trulieve now, I’ve concluded that perhaps this isn’t the most visually appealing strain just due to its genetics. The flower I got from the two different dispensaries looks nearly identical, so at least it appears that the genetics and phenotypes I’ve gotten are consistent.
Beyond that, though, this isn’t exactly the best executed eighth of flower by Trulieve. This batch has a fair amount of “larf” and sugar leaves in it, as you can see above. The flower is moderately dry and has almost zero stickiness to it, which differed from VidaCann’s version of this strain – it was quite sticky.
This eighth seems to break down decent enough, yielding into a semi-fluffy consistency.
Bottom line for the appearance and cure is that it’s not terrible, but it isn’t very good, either.
Appearance/Cure Rating: 5.00/10.00
Super Lemon Haze is a high-Terpinolene strain as you can see in the terpene section of the lab report above, and like many strains that are high in this terpene, it has that distinct “lemon floor cleaner” type of smell. As far as the comparsion to VidaCann’s version of SLH, the smell is virtually identical.
The smell of the flower in the jar is moderate in its “loudness”, maybe a 5 on a 1-10 scale with 10 being the msot pungent flower. When broken down, as is common with cannabis flower, the smell becomes stronger and more refined. I can detect more of the sweet lemon candy type smell. Where Trulieve’s version of SLH differs is that there is a faint smell of skunk and fuel when the flower is broken down.
The taste of this batch is also a bit different. VidaCann’s flower tasted more like the smell – like sweet lemon candy, especially on the inhale. I do not get that with Trulieve’s version; instead, the taste is earthy, spicy, and woody all the way through.
Though this smell and taste combination is one of the more common ones I’ve found in our program, I do still enjoy it.
Smell/Taste Rating: 6.00/10.00
All in all, Super Lemon Haze is a more balanced sativa – but – it has potent cerebral effects for the first 20-30 minutes, and I have found that to be consistent every time I’ve had this strain, no matter where I got it. For newer or very low tolerance patients, I could see these effects bordering on being pseudo-psychedelic – so use the cliche and “start low and go slow” with this strain if that describes you.
Once the initial mind-screwing wears off, I find SLH to induce a state of a hazy, cozy euphoria. It is not the most motivating/focus-initiating strain, but it is energetic and feels pretty happy. I find it best suited for early morning to early afternoon use; it is not a strain that I would personally use at night.
Possibly good for treating:
- Depression and related anxiety
- ADD/ADHD or focus-related issues (in lower doses)
- Lack of motivation (in lower doses)
- Improves concentration and memory recall (in lower doses)
- Increases energy/alertness, in a way almost similar to caffeine (in lower doses and particularly during the initial effects)
- Relief of minor aches and pains
- General relaxation
- Relief of minor GI issues: IBS, etc.
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Everybody is different, and every body reacts differently to various medications.
Effects Rating: 7.00/10.00
Overall Rating: 6.00/10.00
Overall, I would best describe Super Lemon Haze as a “pretty good” sativa strain from Trulieve.
The overall quality of this flower, in my opinion, merits a $25-35/eighth price tag. It is a nice strain, but compared to other flower I’ve seen from Truliever in the past and present, it should be in the lower tier of prices rather than the middle.
Trulieve has been releasing dozens and dozens of new strains in the past couple of years, and I am doing my best to keep up with them and the other MMTCs’ new strains to review for you all. That task has become all but impossible as our options have expanded, which is a very good thing – a sign of more access, options, and affordability for all.
