Growing Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade is resilient to mold and mildew, and it’s fairly low maintenance, making it a good option for those who are new to growing. If grown outdoors, it does well in warm climates but struggles with vast temperature drops, so if your nights are more than 20 degrees cooler than your daytime temperature, you may want to cover it at night or consider indoor cultivation. 

It grows fairly tall, even indoor heights can reach over four feet and yields top out over 500 grams per square meter. Outdoor growers can expect greater output if grown in optimal conditions. The plant itself is attractive with larger, curled buds of sage and mint green peppered with orange hairs and is often accompanied by a light coating of crystal trichome’s that give it a dusty white look. 

Flavor and Aroma Profile

As you may gather by its name, Strawberry Lemonade is known for its sweet-tart aroma and flavor with noticeable strawberry flavors, especially when exhaling the smoke. The terpene profile that creates its unique aroma includes: 

  • Myrcene creates herbal notes and is also found in lemoncannabis and hops.
  • Limonene provides the fruity aromas and flavors and is also found in citrus peels. 
  • Caryophyllene provides a peppery note similar to what is found in clove or warm spices. 

How Strawberry Lemonade Interacts with the Endocannabinoid System

To better predict how Strawberry Lemonade will affect you, let’s consider how Potency and terpenes in the strain interact with your endocannabinoid system. Th

Understanding the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system controls our most critical bodily functions, including appetite, temperature control, sleep, and immune responses (Zou and Kumar, 2018). Let’s look at what comprises this network of neurotransmitters and receptors: 

  • Endocannabinoids (endogenous cannabinoids) are the neurotransmitters that send signals between the nerve cells. 
  • CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors form on cell surfaces and bind to endocannabinoids. CB1 receptors are within the nervous system and regulate stress, appetite, mood, and sleep. CB2 receptors are found within the peripheral nervous system and regulate pain, inflammation, and immune responses (Wright, et. al. 2009). 
  • Enzymes create and break down endocannabinoids as needed. 

The body produces endocannabinoids when necessary in order to keep the body in a form of homeostasis or optimal state, so it’s hard to measure how much the body makes at any given time or if an individual may not produce enough of them. 

The Effects of Strawberry Lemonade on the Endocannabinoid System

The main active ingredient of Cannabis l. Short Photoperiod Plant are phytocannabinoids, particularly tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency). Phytocannabinoids have a similar structure to endocannabinoids within the body and affect the system in a similar manner, binding to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. However, because Potency is introduced into the body, it is a more heightened or concentrated effect, often stimulating the appetite, promoting deep relaxation, or improving the mood. The higher the percent of Potency, the more potent it will be and often, the stronger the effect. Strawberry Lemonade averages around 19 percent Potency, making it a fairly potent option. 

In addition to Potency, terpenes can interact with the endocannabinoid system and enhance some of the effects of Potency. 

  • Myrcene is shown to ease symptoms of anxiety, inflammation, and pain (Surendran, et. al 2021).
  • Limonene offers anti-anxiety properties (Lima, et al. 2013) as well as anti-inflammatory properties (Viera, et. al. 2018)
  • Carophyllene promotes deep relaxation and reduces stress and worry. 

The Psychoactive Effects of Strawberry Lemonade

In addition to Potency content and the terpene profile, the psychoactive properties of a strain can be determined by whether it’s an short photoperiod plant, long photoperiod plant, or combination between short and long photoperiod plant. Short Photoperiod Plant strains tend to provide deeper physiological effects, including physical relaxation and fatigue, whereas long photoperiod plants tend to be more stimulating and energizing. Combination Between Short and Long Photoperiod Plants will provide features from both.

Strawberry Lemonade is a 60 percent long photoperiod plant combination between short and long photoperiod plant, so it is found to provide an energizing experience in which the user may feel more motivated, creative, or experience greater mental clarity. However, there will also be increased feelings of euphoria and relaxation, and many users find it eases feelings of pain and inflammation.
