Just recently I again wrote of the magical heat and high combo, but today, after DynaVaping a capful of Lemon Skunk, I had quite the opposite happen. But before that, Lemon Skunk lived up its name by stinking up the house so fierce that Mrs. Fareye had to light a stick of incense. After I said its name, she just kept saying skunk over and over. My shoddy olfactory senses didn’t sniff a thing. It tasted a bit sweet though, possibly citrusy.
On a walk to the pharmacy I didn’t feel especially or overtly high – merely baking (from the heat), but not pleasantly baked. Two blocks later, as I entered the glorious air conditioning of a pharmacy chain I’ll call BTX, the instant cool air just as instantly elevated my high. Bam! I felt delightfully, yet never heavily stoned as I marched around the store gathering the whole TWO things that I came in for. But it was so hot outside, I didn’t immediately want to head back out.
Suddenly, the overhead speakers emitted a nemesis. I do not actively hate very many songs and certainly the list of songs I love is infinitely longer than the list of those I do not. But “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” by Bryan Adams is on the hate list. (I cannot in good conscience link to it.) Always has been, always will be. It was used in 1991’s “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” an already dubious production that suffers further indignities under the crushing mediocrity of this power ballad.
Upon this song playing on the overhead and potentially ruining my high – wait, not potentially…it WAS ruining my high, I knew my brief journey had come to an end, as there was no recovering from this, another of life’s disappointments. Out of ALL the songs that could have been playing. Well, at least it wasn’t the even more upsetting “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?” Not like you, Bryan. Clearly nobody has ever loved women the way that you do.
Back at home, I had a one-on-one business phoner. Sure, one should ideally not conduct business while they are stoned, but sometimes you end up doing it and it works nicely, as this call did. So, Lemon Skunk is unlikely to impair you, but it will most certainly put a stride in your step. It chilled me out nicely, and while the high was fairly long-lasting, the comedown was most certainly palpable. I grew relaxed and tired as the afternoon wore on, even after I DynaVaped a tiny bit more of the Lemon Skunk halfway through writing this review.
Lemon Skunk is a Sativa-dominant hybrid. What I DynaVaped had a relatively low THC content of 14.58%. For the sativa averse, this may be a good thing. You can get all the benefits of a sativa strain without some of the more intense drawbacks. According to info given to me, Lemon Skunk’s effects are “tingly, happy, and relaxed” and it may relieve “depression, anxiety, and nausea.”
