Super Lemon Haze (SLH) is a legendary strain with some amazing natural flavors. One of my favorite things to do is pair a specific strain with a certain dish. Cannabis contains natural terpenes that pair surprisingly well with many different flavors.
In this segment, we take a look at the cannabis strain Super Lemon Haze and why it pairs well with a yogurt parfait.
Super Lemon Haze (SLH)
Genetics: Lemon Skunk x Super Silver Haze – 25% Indica, 75% Sativa
Potency: 23.96% THC, 0.15% CBD
Flavor and Aroma
Super Lemon Haze has a pungent and skunky aroma. At first sniff, it reminds you of a spicy herbal blend. The sweet citrusy notes are clearly evident as you pick apart or grind the cannabis, allowing the full scent of the plant to be released.
The taste of SLH combined with the aroma is what makes it a great strain for food pairings. It has an initial lemony, sweet, earthy flavor that tantalizes your taste buds. It reminds you of drinking an ice cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. It has a zest to its makeup that almost feels artificial and that makes the fact that these flavors were produced naturally, that much more amazing. The limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene terpenes in Super Lemon Haze give the strain its sweet but peppery taste
SLH is a positivity juggernaut, that’s been observed to elevate the mood of users and bring creative energy to their lives. Great for a daytime smoke, this strain brings about motivation and a separation from the mundane.
It produces a vibrant body buzz while providing users a clarity that allows for consumption during any time of the day. Overstressed? High levels of Anxiety? Super Lemon Haze could be the strain to elevate your mood and bring a brighter start to your day.
Super Lemon Haze x Yogurt Parfait
With all data considered above, a Yogurt Parfait is the perfect dish to pair with this decadent cannabis strain for both flavor and effect.
Why does it pair so well? Here’s the 1-2-3.
- Yogurt is a common cannabis pairing, as the sweet flavor pairs well with many sativa strains like Super Lemon Haze.
- The limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene terpenes in Super Lemon Haze give it a sort of bitter-sweetness, which pairs great with sweet yogurt and berries.
- The uplifting, energetic effects of Super Lemon Haze go well with the time of day you usually eat a yogurt parfait. And it’s clear-headed high means you can still be productive for the rest of the day.
