Otherwise known as “Sour D” or “Sour Deez”, Sour Diesel is a heavily sativa-dominant hybrid with a 90:10 sativa/indica ratio. The exact origin of Sour Diesel is widely debated among the cannabis community. Some claim it’s a cross between 91 Chemdog and Mass Super Skunk, while others are saying this variety was bred by combining Mexican sativa and a Chemdog phenotype.
Either way, the high produced by Sour Diesel feels like no other. If you’ve associated weed with couch locks and heavy feelings, this strain will surprise you. Sour Diesel provides an invigorating cerebral high that gives reign to your imagination and helps you get the most out of your creativity.
Perfect for daytime use, this strain is appreciated by medical patients thanks to its anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties. Apart from its mind-soothing potential, Sour Diesel is also capable of relieving chronic pain and fatigue, which makes it a very versatile hybrid.
Although the strain contains some indica, it’s not the best choice for treating insomnia, as it will rather stimulate you to the point your “introspection” will make it more difficult to fall asleep. Instead, you might want to use if for your wake n’ bake routine to get a nice head start. Many marijuana users choose Sour Diesel as their daily toke.
As you may have guessed, the name of Sour Diesel didn’t come out of the blue. This strain carries one of the most pungent aromas of any strain, so you may need to take extra caution if you want to stay low-profile in public. On the other hand, Sour Diesel has a nice, candy, citrus flavor that will hands down make your palate satisfied.
Although Sour Diesel can relieve anxiety, it may also worsen it when smoked by a novice or when you overestimate your THC tolerance, so always mind the dosage if you want to experience only the good side of the strain.
