Super Lemon Haze is a highly sought after strain, with good reason too. Not only does it have a nice citrusy flavor, but it can also have some potentially pleasant effects and benefits.
Super Lemon Haze is a sativa dominant hybrid of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze.
Super Lemon Haze Effects
Super Lemon Haze has won multiple awards – including being a two-time winner of
the High Times Cannabis Cup. As far as its effects go, it’s known to
provide uplifting effects that can promote mental sharpness, creativity, and
Along with these uplifting effects, Super Lemon Haze can also provide a relaxing body high. This unique combo of uplifting mental effects coupled with relaxing physical effects, could help to explain why Super Lemon Haze is a popular choice for some who enjoys Working Out High.
Super Lemon Haze has been known to help elevate mood, relax muscles, and alleviate pain. It’s also believed it could help treat symptoms related to anxiety, PTSD, and other mood disorders.1
Super Lemon Haze has earned the reputation of being a good strain for those who want
to enjoy their cannabis while still being able to get things done. With that said,
it’s also known to pack a punch with THC levels often exceeding 20%.
Some people, who are naturally energetic and constantly on the move, could find the uplifting nature of this strain to be overwhelming. So, if you’re new to cannabis – start slowly until you’re sure it’s a good match for You and Your Endocannabinoid System.
In addition to its potency and flavor, Super Lemon Haze can also provide a range of wellness benefits due to its unique terpene profile.
Super Lemon Haze Terpenes
Since one of the first things you notice with this strain is the nice zesty scent of lemon, you would think that limonene is the most abundant terpene. Although limonene is one of the terpenes found in Super Lemon Strain it is not the dominant terpene.
For example, a past lab analysis for Field Trip Flower’s Super Lemon Haze pre-rolls showed that terpenes like caryophyllene, myrcene, and humulene were found in greater abundance than limonene.
Besides cannabis, humulene is also found in hops, sage, ginger,
basil, balsam fir, black pepper, cilantro/coriander, and other plants. Humulene is
what gives beer its unique flavor and its scent is described as earthy and woody
with a hint of spiciness similar to ginger.
During the life of the cannabis plant, the scent of humulene helps to deter pests and prevent mold. Humulene is also an important terpene for those who medicate with cannabis.
Humulene Terpene Effects
For centuries, humulene has been used in holistic Eastern medicine for its
anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities. For example, since sage is rich in
humulene its oil has been known to have antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and
A 2009 study found that when administered orally, or inhaled as an aerosol, humulene could even be effective in treating allergic asthma.2 A 2003 study published in Planta Medica found that humulene in balsam fir oil may also be helpful in fighting cancerous cells that cause tumors.3
Humulene is also known as alpha-caryophyllene, which is not to be confused with beta-caryophyllene.
Caryophyllene, also known as beta-caryophyllene, is another terpene that’s abundant
in nature – occurring in things like black pepper, hops, spinach, rosemary,
cloves, oregano, cinnamon, and black pepper.
Caryophyllene tends to have a spicy peppery scent.
Caryophyllene is known for many therapeutic benefits including being anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antidepressant, sleep-supportive, and appetite suppressing qualities. Not only that but enjoying foods rich in beta-caryophyllene before you consume cannabis could actually enhance THC’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
It is believed caryophyllene is the only terpene to interact with our endocannabinoid system through CB2 receptors found in our immune system.4
Because of this, it can help to reduce pain and inflammation – without
promoting a high sensation. And, its ability to bind with CB2 receptors
gives beta-caryophyllene its strong anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial,
and antioxidant properties.
Other possible benefits of beta-caryophyllene include the ability to:
- Relieve anxiety
- Reduce pain
- Reduce cholesterol
- Prevent osteoporosis
- Treat seizures
Research also indicates that beta-caryophyllene might be helpful in treating certain
cancers and neurodegenerative diseases.5
A few other interesting tidbits about beta-caryophyllene, include:
- When mixed with THC, beta-caryophyllene can help prevent the development of gastric issues.
- CBD and beta-caryophyllene can be helpful in the treatment of substance abuse and addiction.
- When mixed with humulene, beta-caryophyllene’s anti-inflammatory benefits can make it useful in the treatment of arthritis, bursitis, and fibromyalgia.5
Finally, did you know that if you find yourself feeling a bit too high, munching on a couple of black pepper balls might help? That’s because the terpenes in black pepper (pinene, myrcene, and beta-caryophyllene) can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and help calm you down.
Foods That Can Impact Your High
Limonene is a common terpene that most people can immediately recognize by its citrusy scent. Limonene is commonly found in the rinds of lemons and oranges. It’s also one of the most commonly used fragrances in cosmetics.
Limonene Terpene Effects
The therapeutic potential of limonene has been studied extensively and has shown promise in being able to treat a wide range of diseases and medical issues. In studies, Limonene has shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, anticancer, and antidiabetic benefits. Limonene has also been shown to have gastroprotective effects and can also help suppress appetite in some.6
Where To Buy Super Lemon Haze
If you’re seeking to enjoy the potential benefits of the active compounds in Super Lemon Haze, you have a few options.

Vape Carts or Pods
Another way to enjoy the terpene profile of Super Lemon Haze is through vape cartridges or pods. One vape product that can help you enjoy the active compounds of cannabis is full spectrum oil (FSO).
