Lime Skunk

A beautiful sativa-dominant strain with an delectable lime flavor


About Lime Skunk

Lime Skunk is the result of efforts by Exotic Genetix and is a sativa-dominant strain. It is commonly confused with Lime Green Skunk, but it is different. Cresco Labs created this Lime Skunk when they crossed Lemon Skunk from DNA Genetics with Green Ribbon BX (Green Ribbon x The Hulk) from Exotic Genetix. The resulting Lime Skunk strain is a sativa dominant with a sativa to indica ratio of 60 to 40 percent.

Cannabinoid Content

These fragrant flowers tend to have a THC potency of about 16-18 percent. Users agree that Lime Skunk is potent, with the average THC levels, usually between 17.75 and 22.50 percent. Those in search of strains with high CBD may want to look somewhere else as this cannabinoid is typically found in just 0.55 to 0.14 percent.


Lime Skunk's effects tend to be mostly cerebral, inducing a sense of warm euphoria with a creative and energetic buzz that permeates the rest of the user's body. The buzz is also frequently described as racy yet clear-headed. This makes it a popular choice for those who want a strain that encourages productivity and motivation without a feeling of excessive speediness.

When you smoke Lime Skunk, you will notice the euphoria beginning almost instantly. You will also experience cerebral stimulation. Overall, Lime Skunk uplifts the user with cerebral euphoria while energizing the body and mind and boosting creativity. After this, you will experience moderate relaxation. Some people may experience sleepiness and laziness when coming down from the high.

The most common effects of Lime Skunk include happiness, mellowness, uplifting, focus, and euphoria. The most common adverse effects are all the expected ones from most marijuana strains, including tingles, laziness, dry eyes, and dry mouth.

Lime Skunk is a popular choice for those who want to relieve the symptoms associated with GERD, chronic pain, arthritis, gastrointestinal issues, asthma, sleep issues, weight loss, ulcers, anxiety, and depression. It can also help relieve stress.

The potency of Lime Skunk means that beginners who are considering using it should exercise caution. Otherwise, they may experience paranoia, jitters, or hyperactivity. Experienced users and anyone who correctly moderates their dose should not experience these side effects.


Buds of Lime Skunk tend to have a lime green color, unsurprisingly, and each mossy flower is surrounded by a net of auburn pistils and bright, sparkly trichomes. The buds are dense and frosty, easily showing you the richness of the trichomes. The pistils are rustic, and squeezing the bud shows off its resinous feel and ability to bounce right back

Aroma and Flavor

The strain possesses a skunky aroma that hints at its intense and somewhat sweet lime flavor. Some compare the aroma to fresh-squeezed lemonade.

The strain's terpenes include alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, ocimene, terpinolene, beta-myrcene, d-limonene, beta-caryophyllene, linalool, and alpha-humulene. The result is an aroma that combines lemons and fresh pine. Many users also notice a strong mint flavor.

Other Information to Know

The cerebral stimulation of Lime Skunk makes it a popular choice for use either during the day or in the morning. Smoking it before bed may make it challenging to fall asleep.
