In the last few months, Cresco Labs has been releasing new flower strains too quickly for even its own website’s strain index to keep up. Lemon Frost, an unusually purple sativa, sounded like a much-needed dose of refreshing tangy flavor, prompting me to take it home on a recent visit to Greengate Chicago.
Lemon Frost is a cross of Lemon Bean and Sugar Daddy #5. This Lemon Frost eighth had attractive jar appeal with six colorful, well-manicured buds that displayed a dense yet fluffy structure. Half of these buds were approximately the size of a green grape while the other half were true popcorn buds, all with frosty clusters of white-gold trichomes marbled throughout like mineral deposits in a cave.
I began sampling the mysterious sativa the first week of March, just past a month after the date of harvest. At that point, the fragrant nugs had just enough moisture content to avoid the “crispy” descriptor, but it was close. Total THCa was listed at 24.86%, and though no terpenes were named on the jar, I could distinctly make out terpinolene, limonene, b-myrcene and linalool due to the flower’s scent, flavor, and character.
Against the norm, Lemon Frost smelled the same when whole as it did after a grind, with a sprightly, floral hibiscus iced lemonade perfume that almost concealed a hint of funnel cake gas. While the strain’s aroma had a deceptively cool essence to it, the smoke carried a warmer quality with layered notes of lemon hard candy, ripe cantaloupe, and herbal Tom Kha broth.
After smoking a roughly one-gram joint, I felt peaceful, emotionally regulated, and functionally dazed. My eyes were forced into a squint while waves of cerebral impact oscillated through my skull. I also soon noticed an enhanced tactile sensation as a light breeze caressed my hand, and at that point realized the benefits that the flower could offer for meditative breathing, as well as for pursuits of the flesh.
Good for passing time without letting it pass you, Lemon Frost allowed me to stick to my self-imposed schedule and enjoy otherwise tedious tasks with a palate-pleasing smoke.
