Sour Diesel, also known as “Sour D” and “Sour Deez,” is a popular sativa marijuana strain made by crossing Chemdawg and Super Skunk. Sour Diesel effects are dreamy, cerebral, fast-acting and energizing. This strain features a pungent flavor profile that smells like diesel. Medical marijuana patients choose Sour Diesel to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, pain, and stress.
Developing tall and dainty, as most Sativa plants, getting to around six feet inside and a lot higher out. The leaves and buds get purple with age and are the accomplished producer’s sign of when to reap, which is about when the light pink tints start. Acrid Diesel blooms for around 7 two months and has an overwhelming smoke with a hard-hitting buzz that can keep going quite a while.
Appearance of Sour Diesel Strain
Sour Diesel Allbud. This strain has round, medium-sized buds with leaves that appear yellowish-green. Red hairs called pistils, structures that operate to catch pollen from male plants, contrast with the densely-packed leaves. When properly cured, the flowers are somewhat sticky — the dusting of trichomes is not as immediately obvious as it is on more resinous strains like White Widow. Nevertheless, breaking open buds reveals trichomes coating the insides of the dense flowers. Order Sour Diesel Online Now
Some people legitimately enjoy the smell of gasoline. I’m not here to judge. What I had a hard time
understanding was where the “sour” part came in. I immediately thought Warheads candy for many
years, but couldn’t place that in the herb. No, sour here is a noticeable funk that has little sweetness to it.
Think lightly expired dairy and not a full-on fridge science experiment.
My fiancee (yes, I’m recently engaged!) and I have a pact when it comes to cleaning. She’s great at the day-to-day, make-sure-this-place-doesn’t-fall-apart maintenance. Every few months, I do an OCD-level sweep of the premises loaded up on coffee and sativa and the futuristic sounds of Glitch Mob radio on Pandora.
As it turns out, Sour Diesel strain and I make a great maid service. Gearing up for her surprise birthday party (don’t worry: she doesn’t read my column) I smoked a quarter-gram and began ripping couches away from walls to find whatever Sheltie hair and menacing spiders had been calling the space home. Our guests can’t know these things exist.
Compared to a haze strain, the energy was much more focused as I methodically worked through the living room with the precision of Jack Bauer clearing a building of potential threats. I went full “24” on it. Usually anything I do that emulates Kiefer Sutherland takes a toll on my back. This was no exception.
Only, I didn’t seem to notice until I was two hours in that a dull ache had crept up. Sour D isn’t the best at knocking out heavy pain, but this was a good example of a time when simply being distracted was enough to win the day. Sour Diesel is the ultimate in what I call a nice “vacation sativa.”
It’s not as mentally engaging (or paranoia inducing) as a strong haze, but isn’t as heavy as a Trainwreck or Jack strain. You can smoke a bit and still have a head on your shoulders for exploring the city.
