Lemon Z by OGEN

Published on May 7, 2021 by David Wylie

I’m on the fence about OGEN’s Lemon Z.

It’s a Sativa Dominant strain clocking in at 20.1% THC.

Eighths come in a cute plastic container with a bright yellow label. Popping it open revealed it was packed to the very top with dewey and bushy buds. It came in more than half a gram overweight.

However, it lacked scent. You’d expect Lemon Z would be a burst of lemony freshness, but it was just a bit grassy.

Picking up the buds, they felt almost wet. I had to tear it apart, which is a sign of a poor cure or it got rushed out the door before drying properly. Mine was packed March 29, 2021, and has mellowed out a bit since first opening it. It’s a harsher smoke—whereas dry-herb vaping is a smoother and zestier experience.

It feels overpromised with “aromas of lemon, brown sugar, and chocolate,” and instead underdelivered with unscented.

Despite the shortcomings of Lemon Z, I would try something else by OGEN. This is the first of their products to become available in BC. It has had some popularity in Ontario, especially their Gas Berries flower.

Lemon Z is derived from a cross of Lemon Skunk and Zkittlez, and it has a terpene profile of Limonene, Linalool, and Caryophyllene.

Personally, I felt a strong psychoactive head high at the peak that melted into a mellow tiredness.
