Sour Diesel Auto is a cross of a Sour Diesel #2 with a ruderalis plant. It is the auto-flowering version of Sour Diesel #2 and is 70% cannabis sativa. It is quite a stealthy strain for covert outdoor grow-ops.
Sour Diesel Auto is a very easy-to-grow strain whether for indoors or outdoors. It keeps quite a low profile but if it looks like it's getting too tall for comfort outdoors then topping would be a good solution. As the buds fill out the short inter-nodal spacing means that they join up to form elongated, resinous colas. Yields are in the region of 60 gr/plant although more dedicated growers, or those with more skill/experience, will be able to get considerably more than this. Indoor grows will see the best yields from a SoG set-up.
In terms of aroma Sour Diesel Auto smells of citrus fruits with notes of noble woods. The overwhelming flavour is of diesel and sour fruit. THC production is about 13% - 17% with the by now familiar low CBD profile of the majority of Humboldt Seeds Organization's non-CBD range. The effect is very much in line with this strain's sativa dominance; powerful, uplifting, euphoric and cerebral. A great social smoke.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
