Strawberry Lemonade Grow Report

Craving lemonade but worried about the calories? Cannabis enthusiasts have a sugar-free alternative that boasts a tantalizing strawberry-lemon aroma.

Enter Strawberry Lemonade, a sativa-dominant (60%) hybrid from Barney’s Farm’s Cali Collection in the Netherlands.

Originating from a blend of Strawberry and Barney’s Lemon OG, this strain promises an aroma that’ll “make your nostrils tingle and taste buds dance.”

With a THC content exceeding 20%, Strawberry Lemonade offers a zesty kick, perfect for daytime use. Its uplifting effects can elevate one’s mood and induce laughter.

Growth and Yield

But it’s not just about the aroma and effects.

Strawberry Lemonade also impresses with its growth characteristics. Indoors, after a 60-70 day flowering period, growers can expect a generous yield of up to 700g/m2. Outdoors, this strain can produce up to 2.5 kilos per plant.

It boasts a strong resistance to mold (5/5 on Barney’s scale) and finishes early (1st-2nd week of October), reducing the risk of mold infestation. Spider mites? They struggle against this variety, which has a resistance rating of 4/5.

Vegetative Stage Insights

In its vegetative stage, Strawberry Lemonade showcases its sativa dominance, often reaching 120-150cm indoors. Despite its height, Barney’s considers it a relatively easy strain to cultivate.

The Doc, a cannabis enthusiast, was drawn to this strain as a refreshing alternative to the many indica-dominant strains on the market.

He noted its rapid growth, dark green slender leaves, and unique upward side shoot development.

Flowering and Aroma

As it enters the flowering stage, the plant continues its dynamic growth. The Doc was particularly impressed by the massive head bud and the densely packed calyxes covered in resin. The aroma? A delightful blend of lemon and strawberry that’s both potent and unique.

Harvest and Yield

When it came time to harvest after 70 days, the two Strawberry Lemonade plants had reached 109 and 117 cm. The Doc’s yield was a whopping 272 grams, averaging 136 grams per plant.

Taste Test and Effects

During his taste test, The Doc was struck by the strain’s intense lemon flavor, reminiscent of lemon-flavored fizzy tablets, with a hint of strawberry sweetness.

The initial puffs were invigorating, giving him a burst of energy that lasted about an hour. Afterward, he felt relaxed and content.

The Doc raved, “Strawberry Lemonade is exceptional. It’s earned a spot in my top sativa strains after four decades of home growing. Truly a standout in every category.”
