About Sour Diesel
Sour Diesel will give you a terrific blast, a smash-in-the-face of Chemdawg and a Sativa we haven’t identified yet. We don’t even know who bred it originally – most people call him/her “A.J.” or “Asshole Joe.” It not only comes packed with 26% THC on the high end, but also retains 2% CBD and 4% CBN during extraction, which is pretty unheard of. These added chemical compounds don’t alter the base effects of Sour Diesel, but they provide varied intensity that you can’t really calculate (or control). For a feeling of ultimate happy heaviness, Sour Diesel (also called “Sour Deez'' and “Sour D” for short) brings a nearly pure 90% Sativa to bear on your restless mind. You won’t stand a chance.
Sour Diesel’s lineage contains a little mystery. Researchers suspect that it was created accidentally from strains in the Chemdawg and OG Kush line. Particularly, Chemdawg 91 is suspected as a likely parent, along with possible candidates like DNL and Massachusetts Super Skunk. Either way, the plant grows lanky, throwing up a ton of foxtails around its dense, light green nugs, and releasing pungent odors into your indoor garden, like little skunk-citrus flower bombs.
Speaking of aromas, Sour Diesel continues to earn its name as you smoke it. A pungent cloud of skunky haze (like Diesel Gas but after eating an entire fruit orchard), explodes from this bud in a dense, lemony fog. The odor is sour, pungent, and strong. The taste is earthy, herbal, gassy, and with an unmistakable aftereffect of lemon on your tongue.
The effects begin as a surge of cerebral energy, which promotes creativity and a feeling of get-up-and-go. Sour Diesel is a great wake-and-bake strain to get your day started, especially if you’re a remote worker that wants some mental stimulation without worrying about how skunky-delicious you smell. The strain is invigorating and that gives it its main medicinal uses.
For those suffering from anxiety and depression, Sour Diesel can help you kick them through sheer mental energy. The stimulation and brain-electrifying feelings would get anyone up and moving (the 26% THC high doesn’t hurt either). It can help you fight fatigue, get your appetite moving again, combat that pesky migraine, or even help with mood disorders. Due to its energizing abilities, Sour D can help those that suffer from bipolar disorder (manic depression) or PTSD by giving them a boost of positive cerebrality. Cerebralness? Cerebralism. Cerebralation?
We love it, whatever it is. Sour Diesel is heavy, gassy, pungent, sour, skunky, and above all, awesomely day-enhancing. For mornings when you don’t know how you’re supposed to get started, this is your wakeup call of non-deadly lemon gas down in the trenches of your tiredness. Get up! Go!
The only thing to add is that for me, it should be named Diesel Dream. It gives me energy and gets me going, but I am a passenger, not the driver. I seem to "float" through my day. I couldn't focus on anything very well...I also didn't care either lol. Great daytime strain if you have a light day. If you need to be at the computer working all day and focusing...GOOD LUCK!! Although I guarantee you will at least enjoy staring at your work while your mind goes all over the place (but always a happy place).
A challenging strain but worth it in the end
Occasional smoke with it is nice but as a regular smoke it isn't for me. Good, solid high; just prefer Ammo as a staple.
Not an easy plant to grow and not really worth the effort. Questionable genetics and not a pleasant smell or taste. Other Diesel strains are far better,
