THE LONG WAY HOME (my toke)
 Usually I can draw upon the genetics in the lineage and I can provide some insight into the strain between any knowledge or personal experience I have with any of the parent strains combined what I can research online and by speaking to the dispensary. However, Lemon Skunk’s genetics are so generalized that I had very little outside reference.

My take is that Lemon Skunk, at least SunMed’s version, gave me a very intense euphoric mental uplift that seemed a bit more refined than one would feel from a Diesel strain for instance.
