About this Hybrid Strain
Cream that has been deliberately fermented by adding bacteria to it may not make for the most attractive vision in your mind for a cannabis strain. After enjoying the Sour Cream cannabis strain, however, any negative perception you may have had about sour cream is definitely going to be altered.
This sativa-dominant powerhouse was created by DNA Genetics. They describe themselves as two stoner buddies who met in Hollywood, CA in the 80’s, that love breeding cannabis. They decided to move their operation to Amsterdam, where cannabis was legal at the time. They created Sour Cream by crossing the infamous Sour Diesel strain with another sativa-dominant hybrid, G13 Haze. Both of these parents have been highly touted as effective strains, and one might assume Sour Cream may be just as helpful.
The Sour Cream buds have chunky lime and fern-green leaves with long, dark-orange wavy pistils flailing wildly in all directions. Short and sticky white trichome hairs cover the flower, reminiscent of snow frost on pine trees in winter.
The same diesel fuel aroma from its parent strain is present, along with hints of pungent cheese and vanilla, with a tangy citrus flavor, that is amplified when combusting Sour Cream.
The high from Sour Cream reportedly comes on fast, with an intense cerebral rush, where colors and sounds become more distinct and pronounced. Users report thoughts speeding up and turning into lucid visualizations, while the senses become enhanced. These enhanced sensations have made some users coin Sour Cream as a potential aphrodisiac. If no one is around to touch, then users are also drawn to Sour Cream’s reported ability to help with focus and mood, suggesting this strain as a good choice for users with ADHD and depression. Testing around 20% THC on average with Myrcene as the dominant terpene, it is no wonder that many users say Sour Cream is effective for helping with chronic pain, cramps, and migraines. They also say the numbing body buzz comes with minimal couch-lock, making Sour Cream a great daytime choice for users that need to stay moving and productive.
Seeds of Sour Cream are available online from DNA Genetics. This strain has a longer than average flowering time of around 11 weeks, but it is worth it as this generous plant can give upwards of 20oz of flower per plant.
