One of the best parts of summer is enjoying the deliciously sweet seasonal flavors that are only available during those few months. So many summer activities also include fruity or fruit-based food and beverages. Fruit salad at a family barbeque, seasonal fruit while lounging by the pool, and cocktails on the beach with a fruity twist are all summer staples. There are plenty of fruity cannabis strains to complement your summer plans, too. A few popular fruit-flavored marijuana strains are Mango Kush, Lemon Ice, and Pineapple Punch.
Mango Kush is an aptly named fruity strain whose exact genetics are unknown. But, it is likely a cross between Hindu Kush and Mango. It has average THC levels between 16-21%. It is an indica-dominant strain with a fragrance very similar to the tropical fruit for which it was named. The taste is a distinctly tropical blend of mango and banana with just a hint of earthy pine. The effects of Mango Kush make users feel hungry, relaxed, and a bit sedated. It can be known to cause a bit of dry eye and mouth as well.
Lemon Ice is a sativa-dominant hybrid Ripper Seeds. It was created by crossing Afghani and Lemon Haze. The THC content is between 16-23%. Lemon Ice has a strong aroma that is a blend of citrusy lemon and lime with just a hint of earthiness. The flavor is also distinctly lemon but with undertones of pungent diesel. The effects of Lemon Ice are first felt in the head, leaving users with a buzzy rush of euphoria and energy. As the high mellows, users report feeling relaxed and happy with a surge in productivity and focus.
Pineapple Punch is a sativa dominant hybrid from Flying Dutchmen. However, many also refer to a second strain as “Pineapple Punch”. The second strain is an autoflowering version that is called “Pineapple Punch Auto”. The Pineapple Punch from Flying Dutchmen, however, typically has THC content anywhere between 14-22%. Many users say the flavor is exactly like sweet, ripe pineapple, while others report tasting a blend of tropical fruit, citrus, and undertones of a floral flavor. The aroma is similarly sweet and tropical. Pineapple Punch often leaves users feeling upbeat, creative, and full of energy.
