Sour Diesel

Gears in your head spinning a bit slow? Struggling to find that flash of inspiration to take a project to the next level? Then you’re a perfect match for mind-bending effects of the sativa heavyweight, Sour Diesel.

Sour Diesel is a very pungent, aromatic strain. Heavy chemical aromas, hence the “diesel” monicker, blend deliciously with herbal and sour flavors. It’s characteristic glistening buds make the strain an attractive one, too.

Sour D is perhaps the industry standard when it comes to high-THC sativa. The strain is so well-known that it even has its Wikipedia page. This might be one of the most famous strains of cannabis on the planet, and maybe one of the strongest.

It may not be the best at knocking out heavy pain, but it will deliver an energized and focused high unlike any other.

Sour Diesel boasts an impressive THC complement. The strain offers anywhere from 19 percent to 25 percent THC. CBD is present in trace amounts, with just 0.1-0.3%.

But cannabis users turn to Sour Diesel for the psychoactive effects of THC, not the effects of cannabidiol (CBD).


While technically a hybrid strain, Sour is considered a sativa-dominant. The ratio is about 3:1 sativa to indica.

This strain began blooming back in the early 1990s with cannabis breeder Chem Dog. It is believed to have descended from a line of Chemdawg, Northern Lights, and a Skunk phenotype.

Like many of the best cannabis strains coming out these days, Sour Diesel comes straight from California. It is a favorite with many marijuana users smokers and growers.

The dominant American genetics of Sour Diesel helps ensure the plant grows well indoors just about anywhere around the world. To grow this strain outdoors, on the other hand, growers should choose a warm climate, similar to California or Spain.

Users choose Sour Diesel for its super-fast acting effects. It’s an immediate headrush from the first puff on. The “super-sativa” genetics paves the way for an experience that users describe as door-opening transcendence.


Expect surreal, cerebral effects and pleasing mental stimulation. One user raves how Sour D makes your frontal lobe act in ways you could never have imagined. “It’s almost like Sour Diesel is a key, a key that opens up whole realms of your mind that you were once ignorant of,” they said.

Potent and good for creativity, with no couch-lock or strong body high makes this strain perfect for high-functioning days. Medical patients treat mental illness like depression, anxiety, and stress with this cannabis strain. They’ve made Sour Diesel a traditional medicine among the medical marijuana community.
