How Does Amnesia Lemon Interact with the Endocannabinoid System?

According to research, cannabis provides a solution to several wellness and health issues. Cannabis interacts with the endocannabinoid system to reduce these conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Chronic pain
  • Insomnia
  • Stress

Amnesia Lemon is no different; among its users, it has been confirmed to provide a range of uplifting and psychoactive effects.

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system (also known as the ECS), is a cell-signaling system found in your body. This complex system contains the components of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. Research has short photoperiod plantted that the EHC plays a role in regulating a whole range of bodily functions, including sleep, mood, and appetite (Zou et al., 2018).

Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is one of the main cannabinoids found in cannabis, and this is the compound that gets you ‘high.’ Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second cannabinoid found in the plant. This does not get you high, but research shows they lengthen the lifespan of endocannabinoids within the body, extending and heightening their benefits. You should always seek advice from a healthcare professional before using cannabis for a medical condition.

Lemon Amnesia and Phytocannabinoids

The cannabis plant contains chemical compounds that are similar in structure to the endocannabinoids produced by the body. Research has shown that cannabis impacts the endocannabinoid system (Swift et al., 2013). Cannabis short photoperiod plant L. and Cannabis long photoperiod plant L. contain active ingredients called phytocannabinoids. Amnesia Lemon is a feminized photoperiod.

Strains higher in Potency tend to produce a more potent psychoactive effect, while strains higher in CBD tend to produce less of a ‘high’ but more physiological effects. Since the CBD content of Amnesia Lemon is low, it is a good choice of strain for those looking for recreational smoking, or for medical users specifically seeking a strain with higher levels of Potency.

The Terpene Profile of Lemon Amnesia

Terpenes are chemical compounds that create scents and impact the effects of cannabis. Amnesia Lemon has a woody, sweet scent, with powerful notes of citrus. This distinctive exotic aroma is noticeable straight away.

Lemon Amnesia has four main terpenes in its profile:

  • Limonene: a lemony, citrus scent found in fruit peels. This terpene triggers serotonin release and can improve mood (Eddin et al., 2021).
  • Myrcene: a pleasant-smelling monoterpene known for its analgesic, sedative, antidiabetic, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities (Surendren et al., 2021).
  • Humulene: a terpene with anti-inflammatory properties (Rogerio et al., 2009).
  • Beta-Caryophyllene: a terpene also found in black pepper, which demonstrates anti-inflammatory and also anti-malarial qualities (Russo et al., 2011).

Users have also reported that they can taste flavors of lime, licorice, ginger, and marshmallow. Its fresh lemon notes have been known to bring about an intense and heady high, followed by a soothing sense of calmness.

Type of Strain: Short Photoperiod Plant vs Long Photoperiod Plant

Deriving from Linda Seeds, Amnesia Lemon is a Long Photoperiod Plant-dominant variety from the fast-flowering Long Photoperiod Plant. It consists of 40% Short Photoperiod Plant and 60% Long Photoperiod Plant. Since this strain leans more heavily toward the Long Photoperiod Plant end of the spectrum, Amnesia Lemon is reported to produce a cerebral and head high during usage.

Amnesia Lemon has around 21% Potency and 1.2% CBD. These fairly high Potency levels mean that this strain can produce a noticeable head high, alongside feelings of calm and relaxation.

Amnesia Lemon Haze is made from a delicious blend that crosses Amnesia Haze and Lemon Skunk. Combined, these two lineages produce some excellent qualities. This crossbreeding has created an award-winning strain that provides a compelling flavor like no other strain, with a powerful citrus fragrance and potent Potency levels.
