About Sour Diesel Strain:
Sour Diesel is a Sativa-dominant cross between Chemdawg and an unidentified Sativa. It’s a cross that’s been around for ages, but it only recently became the stuff of legend. The strain has a THC content of 26%, 2% CBD, and 4% CBN, making it incredibly strong—and potentially overwhelming for some users. The intense effects come from a high amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which gives Sour Diesel its unique taste and smell.
The Sativa dominance makes this strain prone to excessive stretch in the flowering stage, but it can still be grown indoors or outdoors. Sour Diesel has a lean appearance with dense light green nugs that have an intense purple tint when viewed from above. This plant will produce copious amounts of resin with a pungent odor associated with this strain’s name.
The Sour Diesel strain has proven itself as one of the most popular varieties in the world of cannabis. This is largely due to its unique combination of aromas and flavors, making it stand out from other strains on the market today. The strain has become known for its earthy flavor and intense aroma, which can be both sweet and sour, making for a unique experience when using this particular strain.
Sour Diesel strain has an intense skunk aroma with a lemony fog. The earthy, herbal and gassy aroma is reminiscent of the smell of your favorite patchouli—you know, the kind that makes you feel like you’re walking through a forest on a sunny day?
The flavor is similar: earthy, herbal, and gassy, with notes of sweet lemonade fresh out of the bottle. The exhale is the perfect complement to this effect: it’s reminiscent of freshly-mowed grass and leaves blowing in the wind on a breezy day. And it has a spicy aftertaste that keeps you coming back for more.

Sour Diesel has an effect that is both intense and long-lasting. The high sets in quickly, within a couple of minutes of smoking. Your head will feel heavy and strange, and you may have trouble focusing on anything for a while after smoking Sour Diesel. That’s because the THC is so concentrated in this strain that it can make you feel like you’re floating around in space: less like yourself, more like a being without form.
Peaking occurs around 60 minutes after smoking Sour Diesel, when the high starts to get going. You’ll likely notice that your body feels heavy and warm but also very relaxed; your muscles will be soft and relaxed, and it might be hard to keep them still when they want to move. This feeling lasts several hours after smoking Sour Diesel—it’s not something you want to miss!
