The smell is sour, pungent and strong. The taste is earthy, herbal, gassy and with an unmistakable lemon effect on the tongue. The effects begin as a surge of brain energy, which promotes creativity and the feeling of getting up and going. Sour Diesel is preceded by its reputation, and for very good reason.
With a potent THC content far above most other sativas, it is best known for its energetic and euphoric effects, along with increased creativity, making it an excellent strain for the day or for waking up and baking. The Sour Diesel strain gained popularity due to the moist scent and the mind-blowing cerebral high it provides. It acts like a true Sativa dominant strain, and the Sour Diesel Weed effect starts with a pleasant head high. You may feel more euphoric, full of energy, and conversations will flow more easily.
The height of the head is more spacious than the centralized ones, so you may be more or less attracted to introspection or to feel conversational. You won't be locked up on the couch, but the strain has episodes of physical relaxation, which makes it good for hiking, parties, etc. Just remember that whether indoors or outdoors, the Sour Diesel strain will have a strong smell that won't keep your experiment a secret. Known as one of the stinkiest and spiciest strains of marijuana, Sour Diesel Weed is highly prized for it.
Sour Diesel has higher than average THC levels, which contributes to its fast-acting brain effect, improves mood and energizes. Others believe that Sour Diesel comes from the mix of Original Diesel (which consists of Chemdawg x Super Skunk x Northern Lights) and an unknown Skunk phenotype (which probably consists of Skunk x Hawaiian x Northern Lights). Sour Diesel is one of the 3 most tested strains in Northern California, with an average THC potency level of up to 18%. Although Sour Diesel stimulates the mind, improving the senses, it can also make you easily distracted, making it difficult to hold a conversation or focus on one thing at a time.
So why is Sour Diesel a favorite among medical marijuana patients and cannabis connoisseurs around the world? That's because the Sour Diesel strain has a distinctive, pungent gaseous stench that combines with an exciting burst of energy. Some believe that the Sour Diesel strain simply comes from a Chemdawg phenotype that was slightly different and more on the Sativa side of the equation. Order this for the first time and I will say that I would recommend it to anyone looking for a big high. Sour Diesel is endowed with thicker, rounder calyxes, has a light green color with darker sugar leaves and its pistils, which shoot like flames, vary in color from a light peach to a toasted hot orange.
If you grow it indoors, make sure you have adequate space and high, uncluttered ceilings that allow Sour Diesel Weed plants to grow freely.
