Sour Diesel

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 them “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 through sheer mental energy. The stimulation and brain-electrifying feelings would get anyone up and moving (the 26% THC high doesn’t hurt either). Consumers report it helps in fighting fatigue and gets the appetite moving again.

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!

Good smoke man ffing good smoke. Effects come with a slight delay after the hits. Good tight lift off and smooth glide down. Depending on set and setting you can extend the climb phase to over an hour. Then put that thing on a nice and smooth glide path and enjoy!

I haven’t had this strain in years but I remember it being an awesome sativa with a great pick me up feeling. I used to always smoke this strain out of my bong before work or a workout. It would be nice to see some growers start going this strain again

One of my favorite strains. Excellent energy and alertness, can drift towards overwhelming if you let it but overall great ride and feeling.
