Cepas Sour Diesel
Sour Diesel is a revitalizing sativa hybrid variety that has fast become an immensely popular strain.
Its lineage is documented quite poorly, but what we do know is that Sour Diesel is a Mexican Sativa crossed with an Afghani indica that some believe was derived from a phenotype of a Chemdawg that was altered and left more potent on the sativa end. Others believe that its phenotype is an unknown skunk strain. Most, though, believe that true Sour Diesel, derives from the original Diesel, but there is always speculation as to how the strain was originally spawned.
Being that its genetics are mostly sativa, Sour Diesel strains are dreamy with a fast working cerebral high and deliver a euphoric feeling that gives it its legendary reputation.
Thanks to the energy it emits, Sour Diesel strains are typically recommended for morning use to assist in getting the day started. While the average THC content of Sour Diesel is 17%, it is not rare to see strains as high as 21%.
Like most sativa plants, Sour Diesel stains grow tall and thin with light green buds that pack an abundance of orange hairs. Sour Diesel’s flowering time can range anywhere between fifty-five days and seventy days. It can be grown indoors, but best results can be displayed when Sour Diesel is grown outside.
Though its climatic high can often leave one feeling sluggish after a powerful sativa kick-off, it can also help as a sleeping aid. Its medicating qualities are obvious almost immediately, eliminating anxiety, depression and nausea while also stimulating appetite.
Sour Diesel takes its name from a distinct aroma and flavour. A pungent blend of fuel, skunk and citrus make for an enjoyable yet powerful smoke.
Sour Diesel strains are truly one of the most captivating strains on the marijuana market. It is a mood-enhancer, an uplifter, and a stimulant of the creative muses within and is definitely a favourite amongst recreational and medical users alike.
