Meringue, you fluffy bastard. At all times round to dupe me. I like creamy desserts, candy flavors and including egg whites to absolutely anything. So why can’t I get down with you? (TMI reply: Being reminded of my limitations is miserable, however that’s higher left for the leather-based sofa.) Even after I had a youthful abdomen and tastebuds, meringue was an excessive amount of. Too mild and sugary on high of my pie, too laborious and acidic in cookie type. Name me myopic, however I’m extra of a cheesecake man.

Nonetheless, I received’t stick my nostril up at a cannabis pressure named Meringue. In any case, I like creamy desserts, candy flavors, including egg whites to absolutely anything…and weed.

Lemon Meringue is the kid of Cookies and Cream and Lemon Skunk, a cross of recent and outdated daytime strains. The hybrid remains to be rising its status in dispensaries across the nation, but it surely’s gaining a following in Colorado and is already common in California — in all probability as a result of it’s held on to most of the traits that make its mother and father so common. Recognized for a vigorous uplift and dessert-like flavors, Lemon Meringue is one way or the other in a position to style sinfully candy whereas additionally serving to customers burn energy. That’s good for no less than one win over Key Lime, a sedating phenotype of Lady Scout Cookies named after lemon meringue pie’s better-tasting rival, Key lime pie.

In contrast to its namesake, Lemon Meringue doesn’t get too acidic or tender for 2 causes: One, it’s weed, and two, the smoke carries funky notes of skunk and moist air within the morning, balancing out that creamy sweetness. The pressure’s excessive may be very motivational and retains me comparatively targeted, permitting me to burn via work from home with sufficient vitality for a exercise afterward. Secure to say I like this model of Lemon Meringue greater than the bakery’s.

I’ve noticed Lemon Meringue at Bgood, Lightshade, Mile Excessive Inexperienced Cross, Standing Akimbo and the Inexperienced Answer, whereas wholesale growers and extractors additionally inventory dispensaries with the pressure. My favorites to this point hail from Bgood and Standing Akimbo, and so they pair properly with espresso and a blunt wrap within the morning.

Seems to be: A transparent sativa, Lemon Meringue sports activities buds that just about at all times develop bright-green and fluffy, with an above-average quantity of orange pistils. The pressure’s oblong-shaped buds can get each spherical and lengthy, however the plant itself is normally tall.

Scent: Just like the dessert shelf in your grandma’s fridge, however with weed in it. Candy and bitter smells of lemon, together with nutty, creamy cashew may make you overlook that you just’re smelling cannabis, however dank hints of grass, soil and skunk on the again finish shortly remind you what it’s.

Taste: The pressure’s Cookies background ensures nutty, doughy flavors with a creamy twist, however Lemon Skunk’s heavy citrus affect and earthy, skunky flavors received’t be ignored. The result’s a lush, dank and creamy taste coated in lemon.

Results: Lemon Meringue’s head excessive can appear very intense initially, however calms down shortly as soon as you discover one thing to give attention to for a couple of minutes. Though that vitality is greatest used for bodily exercise, the visible elements and focus may also be becoming for a enjoyable film or thrilling learn. The most effective half? The comedown is minimal, leaving you comparatively unzomibified.

Residence grower’s take: “You’ll in all probability want to seek out Lemon Meringue as a clone, as a result of I don’t suppose feminized seeds of this had been ever made accessible. In the event that they had been, it’s been very not too long ago, and good luck discovering them. Grows sativa, for certain: stretches about midway via and produces these lime-green buds which can be softer than a blanket. I’ve heard of the consequences leaning indica generally, although. Both method, it will probably push out a good yield in eight or 9 weeks in the event you high out the correct amount. These leaves can get in the way in which on the underside nugs.”
