LINEAGE
Sour Diesel is an immensely popular Sativa marijuana strain. It is well suited to relieve stress, leaving you feeling creative, energized and happy. With its unique flavors and aromas and infamous potency, Sour Diesel is well loved in the marijuana community. It's high THC levels may mean it isn't the best strain for cannabis newbies.

Sour Diesel is a famous marijuana strain known for its distinct, citrus and diesel fuel aroma. While it may not sound pleasant, both the acidic aroma and energizing effects of this strain are reminiscent of a strong cup of coffee. Marijuana consumers treasure its potency and euphoric effects.

 

Sour Diesel Experience


An excellent daytime strain, Sour Diesel (Sour D) provides a smooth and powerful uplift. This strain is as energizing as a cup of coffee. You'll likely feel Sour D's effects mostly in your head. In fact, most people find that this strain renders a purely cerebral experience.

The exact genetics of this strain are unknown, but Sour D is thought to be a cross between the illustrious Chemdawg, Northern Lights, and Skunk No. 1. Though there is a little Indica in the mix, you sure don't feel it. Recreational consumers will love this strain for a night out. If you have been putting off some chores, Sour D will help you finish them all with vigor.

The THC content of this strain often runs high, anywhere from 19 to 25%. Those new to cannabis may want to start slow with Sour Diesel. If you are inexperienced with cannabis, you may not enjoy the raciness that can come along with this Sativa.

 

Traits of Sour Diesel and Sour Diesel Seeds


Though this strain has a stinky, diesel fuel-like aroma, its one of the most popular Sativas around. The smell only intensifies when the nugs are broken open, with the gasoline smell becoming almost overpowering. Real connoisseurs will note additional pine aromas. The smoke from this weed is famously harsh itself, causing even some more experienced marijuana consumers to cough. Not known as the most pleasant tasting strain, the diesel and ammonia flavors really take hold on the exhale and last quite a while on the palate.

 

Medical Benefits of Sour Diesel


Undeniably popular with recreational marijuana enthusiasts, this strain is a hit with the medical marijuana community for its potency and long-lasting effects

  • For medical purposes, this strain is used predominantly for stress

  • Some with ADD/ADHD and anxiety disorders enjoy this strain, but Sour Diesel has a tendency to cause paranoia when used in high doses
