Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma.
This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients.
This strain took root in the early 90’s, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.
Sour Diesel is one of the most famous cannabis strains around. The good resin producer from California impresses with a intensive full-flavoured smoke and a mind-blowing high: the staples of great West Coast weed!
For many cannabis lovers, nothing can be better than strains from the West Coast of the United States. Sour Diesel is one of these famed legends. Bred under the endless Californian sun, she is based on the Original Diesel with added Northern Lights, Shiva and Hawaiian genetics which give her amazing qualities and the plant many enthusiastic fans all over the world.
This mostly sativa (70% sativa) grows very well indoors where she will normally reach a height of 90-160cm. There will be some stretching when she flowers but not as much as with other sativas. She will develop very resinous buds that will have a very intense aromatic scent to them in flowering.
You can also grow her outdoors but then she will do best in a warm climate like in the Mediterranean. In such good conditions, when she has plenty of sun she will only get a little taller but can then yield as much as 600g per plant.
Pretty-much like most cannabis strains, she will need about 3-4 weeks when she grows in the vegetative phase. After that, she will enter her flowering period that for a sativa-dominant hybrid is a pleasantly short 10 weeks.
Like some of her other sisters from the West Coast of the USA, Sour Diesel shines with a unique flavour and some extraordinary potency. She delights with the trademark Diesel notes that make this line of cannabis so special along with some sour and herbal tones. With 19% of THC in her smoke and last but not least because of her stellar parents, she delivers a very powerful sativa high that is clear and focused together with some nice relaxation from her indica side.
Sour Diesel is a legendary strain for so many good reasons. If you love sativas, you can’t go wrong with growing this West Coast favourite!
