Sour Diesel is a slightly mysterious sativa-dominant strain (90% sativa, 10% indica) that gives one of the most uplifting and creative effects available. Users are also often pleasantly surprised by the potent scent and taste.
The parentage of this particular hybrid is somewhat mysterious, although there seems to be murmurs in the community that there could be genetics of Super Skunk and Chemdawg 91 in the mix. The THC percentage is fairly high, often coming in at between 20-25%, with slightly higher-than-average CBD and CBN content, at 2% and 4% respectively.
Not a great option for stealth grows due to its height and pungent aroma, Sour Diesel can be grown in any environment and is a relatively easy plant to cultivate, able to adapt well to either soil-potted or hydroponic set-ups. Outdoors, the plants can get fairly tall and produce generous yields of up to 550-700g/plant, ready to harvest in October. When grown indoors, flowering time is around 9-10 weeks; the plants grow anywhere between 90-160cm and deliver yields of around 550-700g/m2.
As you may gather from the name, Sour Diesel has a distinctive pungent smell, with strong tones of skunk and diesel, which are only very slightly covered by lemony citrus notes. The potent aroma is also known to linger for some time after smoking, so it is advised that this strain be enjoyed when discretion is not needed. Equally, the flavor is just as punchy, with an earthy element and a very subtle sweet and spicy aftertaste.
The energizing factor is a large part of what makes this strain so popular – users will find themselves uplifted mentally and physically, with an effervescent high that leaves the mind and body feeling both light and replenished.
