About Sour Spyder
Although the origins of Sour Spyder are still unknown today, this strain is popular amongst growers for its hardiness and the speed of its flowering. Sour Spyder is the offspring of an ambitious crossbreeding of Spyder and Sour 60.
Sour Spyder is an interesting strain, in that it was bred for its growing habits rather than its medical benefits or really intense high. Both of its parents are auto-flowering strains of marijuana, which means they flower after a certain amount of growth has elapsed. This is different from other strains of marijuana, which refuse to flower until the appropriate light to dark hours ratio has been met. Autoflowers are known for the speed at which they grow, often ready for harvest within 10 weeks of the seed being planted.
Sour Spyder is an incredibly pungent strain of cannabis. Not only are the buds stinky, but the plant has also been noted by some growers to be one of the strongest-smelling strains they’ve ever grown. Its pungency is only expanded upon when consumed, as the flowers release scents and flavors of earth, pine, and diesel when burned.
Sour Spyder has a broad and notable family history. Its lineage includes popular strains such as Sour Bubble, Diesel Ryder, and Blueberry in addition to its parents. Most growers would look at this and hesitate, as this many strong strains can create quite an unstable and hard to grow flower. However, Sour Spyder managed to inherit hardiness from almost all of its ancestors. Thus, the plant does very well in outdoor grows where conditions do not need to be monitored nearly as closely as in indoor grows. The downside to this lack of extreme diligence is that the plant isn’t as potent as other highly-controlled strains, only mustering an average THC count of 18%.
The high from Sour Spyder has been described as beginning with a moderate, heady high that leaves you feeling hazy and foggy. Your inability to focus on anything is quickly counteracted by the slight elements of Sativa that then generate a sense of euphoria in the user. The two aspects intertwine and become an incredibly relaxing high for both body and mind, leaving users relaxed and able to fall asleep. This bud is perfect for those who suffer from insomnia and arthritis, as it alleviates pain and other ailments that keep you up at night. In addition, it leaves users feeling hungry which helps combat appetite loss and nausea in some patients. The perfect bud for kicking back and relaxing on Saturday morning/afternoon after a stressful week at work, Sour Spyder is likely a go-to strain for many cannabis patients that like to grow their own bud.
