Sour Diesel Cannabis Strains
Sour Diesel Cannabis Strains, sometimes called Sour D, is a mostly Sativa(90%) hybrid that gets its name from the almost diesel and citrus odor it emits.
Due to the strain being almost entirely Sativa, Sour Diesel is a purely cerebral high. The high is very uplifting; giving feelings of euphoria. It is recommended as a day starter thanks to the energy it imparts. This strain also reportedly increases creativity. However, as with many strains of cannabis most users experience dry mouth and possibly dry eyes.
Other users of the strain have reported feeling paranoia and anxiety as the cerebral stimulation of this strain can be quite overwhelming (especially in higher doses). Some users easily lose concentration as everything grabs at their attention. For novice users, even something as simple as staying mentally engaged in a conversation can pose a problem.
Stress, in general, is the most common medicinal use for Sour Diesel. The strain’s cerebral high is excellent at calming anxiety and lightening the effects of depression when used in small doses. As such a definitive agreement on its original genetic make up doesn’t exist, however there has been much speculation about it. There are those that believe it was just a different phenotype of Chemdawg that was more Sativa than Indica. Many growers also indicate that it was a cross of Chemdawg and Northern Lights, or perhaps Chemdawg, Northern Lights and Skunk #1. Either way, Sour Diesel is an extremely popular strain in dispensaries up and down the West Coast.
Due to the scarcity of true Sour Diesel there have been many strains that have tried to simulate true Sour Diesel’s high. A few of these strains are actually crosses between true Sour Diesel and other strains. Others do not even contain true Sour Diesel at all.
