About Sour Lifesaver
Sour Lifesaver is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis first grown in the United States. It is one of many strains attributed to BOG Seeds, a cannabis company founded by two high school sweethearts in the 1970’s. BushyOldGrower (BOG) and his wife have been active in the cannabis community for decades, often helping new growers with their techniques and even publishing a book on indoor grows known as Bonanza of Green. Sour Lifesaver is one of many potent hybrids in their long list of original strains. It packs a potent average THC concentration of 17% and makes for a lovely mid-afternoon or early evening smoke.
Sour Lifesaver buds, like the candy they’re named for, are small in stature. However, there’s plenty of goodness concentrated in these small packages. These super dense buds are heavier than they look, and shaped like popcorn. They are mint green in color with thin orange hairs winding throughout the bud. The surface is often coated in a layer of resin and milky trichomes that’s sure to get your fingers and grinder quite sticky.
The aroma produced by these buds isn’t quite pungent, but it’s definitely herbal and spicy. The flavor is nothing to scoff at, often being one of the main selling points of the strain. Users that have reviewed this strain often rave about its combination of tart berries, fresh fruits, and sweet cherries.
The effects of this strain, due to its slight Indica-dominance, aren’t quite as light and airy as the flavor or aroma might be. A few minutes after you’re done smoking and find a comfy place to settle down, a slight tingling sensation will build slowly throughout your body and head. You might feel a bit uplifted as the positive thoughts and vibes begin to rush into your headspace, eliminating any negative or recursive thoughts you might have had. This euphoric sensation is sure to last the duration of the high, right up until you eventually fall asleep.
The high quickly turns physical, leaving you on the sofa in a state of pure relaxation that’s one step below couch-lock. This hazy state is characterized by a lack of focus with a boost to mood sure to have a dumb grin spread from ear to ear. Sour Lifesaver’s effects might even lull you into a state of relaxation so great you;ll fall asleep on the spot, allowing your body to get some much-needed relaxation.
