About Sour Apple
The Sour Apple strain, as the name suggests, has a taste like a blast of sour fruit and a pungent, almost rot-like aroma. The buds are long and fluffy and give your personality similar traits – you’ll be talking forever, enjoying every social situation, and finding the focused energy you didn’t know you had. The slow drop-off eventually sends you into a state of melted couchlock, like a wilted caramel apple person. A range of psychoactive compounds give Sour Apple energizing and mood-relieving properties, though the THC is only moderately high.
Bred from two famously delicious strains – Cinderella 99 and Sour Diesel – Sour Apple has the lineage to back up its popularity. Sour Apple’s original crop was only available in clones so different banks may have slightly different genetics. However, the skunky-sweet flavor should carry over between gardens. The buds should also always grow in an Indica pattern, with long, fluffy buds that are multiple shades of green, from forest to lime. They’re light, almost sponge-like, and shiny with a slick layer of trichomes. Growers can expect a large yield (as much as 700g per plant outdoors) in an average flowering time of 9-11 weeks.
GROWING TIPS: Sour Apple grows energetically, which necessitates frequent trimming to keep the plant in its place. It can grow up to 1.5m tall inside and 4m outside, so you need to make sure you have the room for it. We recommend employing the Sea of Green growing method to keep the plant under control.
As for flavor, we’ve already hinted that Sour Apple has a tart apple flavor, but there’s more to it than that. The strain is a sweet mix of caramel apples and fuel-like flavors, as you would find in a skunkier strain but not as pronounced. The aroma has the tart bite of an apple peel and a mix of sour citrus. The resulting skunk is an almost rotting flavor, like the apple has gotten very old and over-sweet.
The strain unleashes a low THC level (around 15-17%), as well as a lingering amount of CBD and CBN, on a range of mood disorders. Sour Apple can be used to treat ADHD and ADD, stress, depression, mood swings, and migraines. On the physical side, the strain can relieve chronic pain as well as a loss of appetite by giving you the will to relax and snack. The come-down on Sour Apple is even useful for treating injuries, a bout of insomnia, or the symptoms of sleep apnea.
This Indica-dominant (80/20) beauty is infamous for its appropriately-named taste and sociability, relaxing as well as relieving its users. If you find yourself unable to tackle tough social situations or lack the right drift-off to get to sleep late in the evening, Sour Apple may be your new favorite bedtime snack.
Not a fan. I felt like I was melting from the inside out. I had the cold sweats and all I could do is lay there hoping it was not going to kill me. I am 60+ years old and smoked for years but nothing has ever hit me like this. I really was worried. Lasted about 30 mins of doing nothing but feeling bad.

I really loved the apple taste it was really smooth. The high has me couchlocked.
This strain is amazing for two reasons: the balanced high and the incredible smell. I bought this strain from a local sesh in Oakland, CA. These diamonds smelled like old, ripe apples with sour notes. I picked up two grams that lasted me almost three weeks. When I tell you that this strain is a creeper, I'm trying to help you avoid taking too much if you don't feel the effect immediately-- like me! Wait about 10 minutes to find yourself focused with a gentle pressure in your forehead. 10/10 would recommend and I'd love to see the flowers that made the diamond sauce. I can only imagine....
