Although the exact phenotypes of this cannabis plant are unknown, Sour Willie is believed to be a sativa-dominant hybrid. This strain sprouts tightly-packed, deep green nugs with a liberal smattering of trichomes. When pinched, these buds exude a diesel yet earthy aroma, puckering the nostrils with hints of spice. When smoked, Sour Willie tastes heavily of burnt gas and charcoaled wood.
Lab results show its cannabinoid content at roughly 17% THC and 1% CBD.
In terms of its effects, this strain strikes a delicate balance between the best parts of a strong head and a strong body high. It sends a shot of energy to the brain, lending to focus and calm, yet it also lends a tingly, numbing body buzz that’s great to easing muscles, resolving tension, and alleviating pain. For those with sensitive tummies, Sour Willie may work wonders for combatting nausea.
Common side effects include dry eyes and dry mouth, though some users may experience paranoia or anxiety with higher doses.
