Sour Diesel is a Sativa-dominant strain created for Sativa enthusiasts for pain. It’s unclear who invented this potent strain. Still, it was produced by crossing Sour Diesel with Super Silver Haze to create a heavy hitter.

THC levels routinely exceed 21 percent, making it anything but a strain to fool with. Sour Diesel is ideal for relieving stress while still having enough energy to go through the day. However, don’t use this strain before going to bed; else, you may wind up awake for hours rather than sleeping well. The terpene profile of caryophyllene, limonene, and humulene produces intense fragrances.

Chemical Composition

Sour Diesel strain has high levels of THC of up to 19%! Now that’s some powerful weed! The 90% Sativa / 10% Indica hybrid strain also for pain packs a sizable amount of CBD of up to 2%. Its high chemical composition explains its fast-acting, uplifting, and invigorating euphoric head buzz effects.

Sour Diesel Strain is a popular choice for medicinal and recreational smokers alike. Recreational users love it for the bold sense of euphoric head rush it creates as well as its general uplifting.

Medicinal users, on the other hand, love Sour Deez for the mood-elevating and energy enhancement effects that melt away anxiety and depression.  You don’t have to wait until four twenty to enjoy the refreshing effects of this amazing Sativa dominant hybrid.

The most ideal time to smoke the beautiful nugs of this strain is in the morning. Its stimulating and dynamic head high will get you perfectly pumped up and prepared for your daily tasks.

Appearance, Fragrance & Flavors

Sour Diesel strain has giant, chunky, and round light green buds covered by tiny orange hairs. Its leaves are broad and dark forest green in color whilst the pistils vary in color from brownish to deep orange.

When it comes to fragrance, the Sour Diesel strain is one of the most pungent weed strains out there. It derives its name from its ‘stinky’ gasoline scent with refreshing hints of lemon and citrus mixed with dank herbal undertones.

Regardless of the harsh words used to describe this hybrid’s smell, its fragrance is remarkably pleasant in real life and you can definitely look forward to a one-of-a-kind cerebral high.  Flavor-wise, this Sativa-leaning strain has a skunky citrusy taste.

It has a uniquely pungent taste with hints of candy, diesel, and lemon.  When smoked, Sour Diesel Strain burns with a smooth toke, leaving a slightly lemony aftertaste lingering in the mouth.

How to Grow Sour Diesel

While the Sour Diesel weed strain isn’t the easiest hybrid to grow, weed enthusiasts can still grow their own baby ganja plants at home. The strain prefers a slightly warm setting with temperatures of about 31℃ and soil acidity of pH 6.

It is perfect for SOG or SCROG operations and can grow very tall in hot, high-intensity light, and low humidity climates. Since this weed strain is highly susceptible to powdery mildew, growers are advised to sterilize the growing environment.

Flowering time is between 9 to 10 weeks. When grown indoors, Sour D can yield approximately twenty ounces of consumable herb per meter square.

Medical Uses

Due to its long-lasting effects, this hybrid has become increasingly popular, especially amongst people who need a more natural and effective way to treat chronic pain.

It has been known to help with fatigue and calm anxiety, making this a great strain for a wake-and-bake.
