Super Lemon Haze Oil is one of the most popular cannabis strains that exists in the cannabis universe. In this article I will explain why it is my favourite strain and what’s the best super lemon haze oil cartridge I’ve found in the UK.
When you smoke cannabis you can choose from hundreds of different cannabis strains that have been grown or developed over time. Each of these strains have been named by their grower for both marketing purposes, but to also indicate certain properties or characteristics of that strain for example its taste or smells or how it makes you feel. There are 3 main types of strains – sativa, indica and hybrid.
- Sativa: sativa plants are usually taller with long thin leaves. Their buds are more feathery and less dense. Sativa strains are more associated with a “head high” and more uplifting or energizing effects that can help with anxiety and increase creativity. As such, Sativas are commonly used during the day.
- Indica: Indica plants are shorter with wider leaves. Their buds are more dense. Indica strains are more associated with a full body high helping with relaxation and reducing insomnia. As such, this strain is usually recommended for nighttime
- Hybrid: as the name suggests this is a plan that is a crossbreed between and indica and a sativa plant and so the effects will depend on how equal the split is.
After years of cross breeding cannabis plants there are very few cannabis strain that are purely sativa or indica, most are a hybrid of the two and so when people say Sativa or Indica it is most likely that they are really Sativa or Indica – dominant and that a hybrid is a more balanced split of each strain. It’s important to note that, although a plant’s genetics can play a role in how a product makes you feel (e.g. uplifting vs. more relaxed), the type is not the only contributing Health factor. Other factors such as cannabinoid content (such as THC to CBD ratio), the terpene content and how the plant was grown (for example outdoors under natural light or indoors under artificial light) will also play a role in how the plant makes you feel.
One of the most popular and high recognisable strains in circulation is called super lemon haze. It is actually the two time winner of the High Times Cannabis Cup and winner of the IC420 Growers cup! Super Lemon Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze created by Green House Seeds. As the name suggests it has lemony characteristics so a citrusy smell with an equally delicious zesty taste partly due to the presence of the terpene Limonene which is said to also improve your mood and reduce stress.

As with smoking bud, cannabis extracts or oils used by people who prefer to vape will most often be named after the strains from which they are derived from. This is to help consumers distinguish between the different vape cartridges available so as to have a sense of the flavour or effect that they are buying.
In the UK, whilst the vaping industry has long favoured or sold e liquids we are beginning to see the rise in vaping of more concentrated oils or extracts. This option is a lot more in demand these days as they are 1) purer (just hemp extract and natural terpenes) and 2) much stronger (usually 55-65% CBD) so require less hits to get the desired effects. So it is no surprise then that as with bud, Super Lemon Haze oil cartridges are fast becoming the most popular high concentration CBD vape cartridges.
There are still fairly few options for Super Lemon Haze oil cartridges in the UK, but I have been loving the Paso – Citrus Eclipse CBD cartridge. This is their own name high concentration CBD cartridge (65%) that is derived from the Super Lemon Haze strain. Let me know if you have come across any other good Super Lemon Haze oil cartridges in the UK.
