Sour Tsunami Experience

The Sour Tsunami marijuana strain is a high-CBD low THC hybrid. It was first bred in Humboldt by Lawrence Ringo of Southern Humboldt Seed Collective.

Ringo actually bred this strain to address his own medical condition, and it quickly became one of the first high-CBD strains to gain popularity.  Ringo had severe back pain and did not want to take opioid pain medication. So, he developed this strain to use instead.

Friendly and easygoing, this is an appropriate strain for novice cannabis consumers (perfect for making cannabis coconut oil). This strain is unlikely to cause intoxication, making for a calm and relaxed introduction to cannabis.

Recreational users may not get much out of this strain, but those looking for a mild and calm herb to ease stress may enjoy this flower. It’s also a good option for folks who are interested in cannabis but don’t like the experience from high THC strains.

  • Sour Tsunami shatter, Sour Tsunami wax, and other Sour Tsunami concentrates are also available from a number of retailers
