Chem Lem by Dark Horse Genetics is Chem 4 crossed with Joe’s Lemonade. The name fits this strain’s terpene profile perfectly with the perfect blend of Chemical Lemon terpenes! The terpenes can lean towards a specific parent depending on the phenotype. If you get the Chem 4 dominance leaning towards the mother, expect to smell and taste some Bleach, Ajax, Chlorine/Pool Cleaner terpenes that smell very astringent, and nose-burning. If you get a phenotype that leans towards the father, you’ll get some Skunky, Hashy, Creamy, Fruity/Citrus terpenes. If you find the pheno-type which has a nice mix of both parents, you just hit the jackpot!
It’s an easy growing plant, the Chem 4-dominance will be stretchier, but she fills in nicely yielding massive arm-sized colas. The Joe’s Lemonade pheno stays pretty short, bushy, squat, and doesn’t really grow that tall. It has lots of budding sites which look like a bunch of golf ball-sized nuggets all over the plant. She can be topped and responds very well.
Most plants finish pretty early, around 8-9 weeks average, and yield above-average compared to most strains from the Joe’s Lemonade line. If you want to extract this strain into concentrate form we highly recommend hydrocarbon extract to ensure you get the best flavour and effect you possibly can from these terpenes. It will press rosin and make wash hash, butter true potential comes out in something like a Live Resin concentrate such as HCFSE/ HTFSE. (High Cannabinoid Full Spectrum Extract / High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract).
