Sour Diesel 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 him/her “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, but they provide varied intensity that you can’t really calculate (or control). For a feeling of ultimate happy heaviness, Sour Diesel (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, otherwise known as “Sour D” or “Sour Deez” is a sativa dominant hybrid strain with a 90:10 sativa/indica ratio. The origin of Sour Diesel is frequently debated within the marijuana community.
Sour Diesel Appearance & Taste
Some say it’s a cross between mass super skunk and 91 Chemdog, while others claim that it’s a cross between Mexican sativa and a Chemdog phenotype. The word “diesel” in sour diesel didn’t come out of absolutely nowhere. This strain has one of the most pungent aromas of any strain, similar to Diesel Gas with a hint of lemon. You can expect a smooth toke with a slight lemon aftertaste. The appearance of sour diesel is composed of dense light green mug covered in orange hairs.
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 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 Effects
The effects begin as a surge of cerebral energy, which promotes creativity and a feeling of get-up-and-go. Sour Diesel 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.
For those suffering from anxiety and depression, Sour Diesel can help you kick them through sheer mental energy. The stimulation and brain-electrifying feelings would get anyone up and moving (the 26% THC high doesn’t hurt either). It can help you fight fatigue, get your appetite moving again, combat that pesky migraine, or even help with mood disorders. Due to its energizing abilities, Sour D can help those that suffer from bipolar disorder (manic depression) or PTSD by giving them a boost of positive cerebrality. Cerebralness? Cerebralism. Cerebralation?
We love it, whatever it is. Sour Diesel 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 wakeup call of non-deadly lemon gas down in the trenches of your tiredness. Get up! Go!
Final Thoughts on Sour Diesel
Couch lock and a “heavy feeling” aren’t a factor when smoking sour diesel. Instead, you can expect an invigorating cerebral high that open up doors of creativity. This strain is commonly used amongst medical patients to relieve anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue. Although sour diesel consists of some indicia, it’s not the best strain for insomnia and other similar ailments because of the stimulating and lively head high that it delivers. Due to the effervescent contained within this strain, many people choose to smoke sour diesel at the beginning of their day for a head start. The potency of this strain is just enough to give you a great high and become your daily toke.
