Sour Diesel Strain – Sour Diesel Weed [ Diesel Strain ]
Sour Diesel Strain, also known as “Sour Diesel weed” and “Diesel Strain,” is a popular sativa marijuana strain made by crossing Chemdawg and Super Skunk. Sour Diesel Strain effects are dreamy, cerebral, fast-acting and energizing. This strain features a pungent flavor profile that smells like diesel. Medical marijuana patients choose Sour Diesel Strain to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, pain, and stress. Growers say this Diesel strain grows best in a dry, outdoor climate and has a flowering time of 77 days. Fun fact: Sour Diesel Strain first became popular in the early 1990s and has been legendary ever since.
Also known as Sour Diesel weed and East Coast Sour Diesel (or ECSD,) Sour Diesel weed is a prolific strain with somewhat tumultuous origins. According to online sources, Sour Diesel weed gained prominence in New York in the mid-90s when breeder AJ (short for A**hole Joe,) accidentally pollinated a Chemdog 91 female with pollen from a Super Skunk he acquired during a trip to Amsterdam. The end result, Sour Diesel weed, was reportedly named for the way it soured business relationships as it spread through New York’s underground cannabis market, causing rifts as it changed hands among growers.
About Sour Diesel Strain
Sour Diesel strain will give you a terrific blast, a smash-in-the-face of Chemdawg and a Sativa we haven’t identified yet. We don’t even know who bred it originally – most people call them “A.J.” or “Asshole Joe.” It not only comes packed with 26% THC on the high end but also retains 2% CBD and 4% CBN during extraction, which is pretty unheard of. These added chemical compounds don’t alter the base effects of Sour Diesel strain, but they provide varied intensity that you can’t really calculate (or control). For a feeling of ultimate happy heaviness, Sour Diesel strain (also called “Sour Deez” and “Sour D” for short) brings a nearly pure 90% Sativa to bear on your restless mind. You won’t stand a chance.
Sour Diesel weed lineage contains a little mystery. Researchers suspect that it was created accidentally from strains in the Chemdawg and OG Kush line. Particularly, Chemdawg 91 is suspected as a likely parent, along with possible candidates like DNL and Massachusetts Super Skunk. Either way, the plant grows lanky, throwing up a ton of foxtails around its dense, light green nugs, and releasing pungent odors into your indoor garden, like little skunk-citrus flower bombs.
Speaking of aromas, Sour Diesel weed continues to earn its name as you smoke it. A pungent cloud of skunky haze (like Diesel Gas but after eating an entire fruit orchard), explodes from this bud in a dense, lemony fog. The odor is sour, pungent, and strong. The taste is earthy, herbal, gassy, and with an unmistakable aftereffect of lemon on your tongue.
Sour Diesel weed Effects
The effects begin as a surge of cerebral energy, which promotes creativity and a feeling of get-up-and-go. Sour Diesel weed is a great wake-and-bake strain to get your day started, especially if you’re a remote worker that wants some mental stimulation without worrying about how skunky-delicious you smell. The strain is invigorating and that gives it its main medicinal uses.
THC Content of Diesel Strain
For those suffering from anxiety and depression, Diesel strain can help through sheer mental energy. The stimulation and brain-electrifying feelings would get anyone up and move (the 26% THC high doesn’t hurt either). Consumers report it helps in fighting fatigue and gets the appetite moving again.
Diesel strain is heavy, gassy, pungent, sour, skunky, and above all, awesomely day-enhancing. For mornings when you don’t know how you’re supposed to get started, this is your wake-up call of non-deadly lemon gas down in the trenches of your tiredness. Get up! Go!
