Sour Diesel’s lineage has been lost, but it’s believed to be a cross between the hybrid Chemdawg, the indica Northern Lights, and a hybrid Skunk phenotype.
It’s THC levels have been known to be as high as 25%, but its average is around 17%. This sativa strain creates a plethora of cerebral activity, with the majority of reviewers reporting an increase in creativity and energy. It has been known to help with fatigue and calms anxiety, making this a great strain for a wake-and-bake.
Expect a dry mouth and dry eyes if consuming Sour Diesel. Reviewers note paranoia is also a common side-effect due to the cerebral activity it induces which can be overwhelming for some. Although Sour Diesel stimulates the mind, enhancing senses, it can also cause one to become easily distracted making it hard to hold a conversation or focus on one thing at a time.
This potent strain is ideal for avid cannabis consumers, not first-timers.
