The Sour Diesel strain – an instant classic. Sour Diesel’s powerful, invigorating high makes it an obvious contender for one of the greatest strains of all time, at least in North America. Sporting a unique taste and flavour profile, Sour Diesel has been crossbred with other strains to strains such as Sour Tsunami, Sour Jack and NYC Diesel to recreate both Sour Diesel’s effects and pungent, diesel taste. A sativa-dominant hybrid, this strain is the perfect day-time choice for a combination of cerebral elevation and a physical boost.
Often referred to as Sour D, this sativa-dominant strain has a THC content that’s between 20% and 25% potency. Not one for beginners or the faint of heart, only those who are accustomed to strong sativas should consider consuming this dank strain. As its name would suggest, the Sour Diesel smell of this strain instantly hits the nose with a scent that’s almost identical to gasoline. This diesel aroma is undercut with citrus, musk and some additional aromas of pine sap. When combusted, the smoke is thick, cloudy and infamously harsh. A skunky exhale can be expected as the diesel taste lingers on the palette for a good amount of time even once the smoke has been cleared. This strain is pungent – time and place should be considered before this dank strain is consumed.
Sour Diesel’s effects begin with a pleasantly cerebral head-rush that uplifts mood as well as increases brain activity in its users. In social situations, tokers might feel that they’re intensely chatty and more introspective if consumed alone. Accompanying this head-rush is a pleasant feeling of physical relaxation. While not close to a couch-lock state, the physical high can make your body feel as heavy as a stone. The euphoric effects of this strain can also inspire moments of creativity and make it a good choice for medical patients as feelings of anxiety, stress and depression are washed away by Sour Diesel’s pungency.
