About Sour Crack
Sour Crack may not have the most appetizing name, but it brings a diverse collection of genetics and a creamy-sour flavor to match, hopefully to make up for it. The strain is a trooper for breeders with a little less experience and a spirit-lifter for users that want a physical sedative to go with their flavors. Continue reading to learn about the in and out of Sour Crack, what you’ll experience, how it tastes, what it looks like, and what you should be using it for.
Unlike most strains, which split Indica and Sativa genetics, Sour Crack adds 20% Ruderalis to the mix to shake things up. What’s Ruderalis, you ask? It has the traits of autoflowerers, tends to grow naturally in cooler climates, flowers more quickly, and retains a ton of CBD. The sub-species is special just by virtue of not getting talked about too much, so we wanted to give it a little limelight.
What the genetic composition does for Sour Crack is make it autoflowering, fast-growing, sticky-resinous, and powerful. Its 21% THC levels will have you on your back on the couch, probably owing to the 24 Karat genetics (crossed with Green Crack Auto). The plant has round little buds that are bright green, assaulted by thin amber hairs, and trichomes that are tinted light blue, almost green. The strain is a hardy grower in most climates, making it recommendable to most growers. It comes to us by way of Mephisto Genetics, the Spain-based grower who also now has dispensaries in the U.S.
The flavors resulting from Sour Crack’s unique lineage include tropical, sour notes with an herbal overtone in the aroma. The onset is creamy and a little funky before transforming into a calming earth tone. The strain’s high starts with a rush of mental energy, mood-uplifting, negativity-defying. You’ll feel a rush of happiness before dropping off into a lazier, sedated state. The mental energy will shock and then burn out, leaving a lush, calm state of mind. We recommend the strain for late afternoon or evening usage, depending on your tolerance for sedation.
Sour Crack is a popular strain with those who suffer cramps and spasms since it sends your body into a state of physical relaxation. Due to its sedating effects, it may help users get to sleep or work through the symptoms of depression and fatigue. The strain is more than a funny name and an earthy fruit flavor – it’s a state of mind.
