Sour Diesel, one of the most famous and celebrated of strains of all time to feature the Diesel ancestry, this is strain is nothing short of a global megastar. Originally cooked up in California, it didn’t take long for word about Sour Diesel to spread globally and secure its place in the cannabis history books. Bringing together the very best of Sativa and Indica, it’s a generous strain in more ways than one.
The Taste of Sour Diesel
There’s no disputing the fact that for many people, it takes a while to get used to the bitter, somewhat acrid taste that defines strong Diesel strains. However, others taste it just once and fall in love with it. Either way, it’s more than worth your time if you’re looking for a high that lasts – a few hits of Sour Diesel and you’re souring for up to five hours. It’s a heavy-hitting cerebral high with visual effects and euphoria, not to mention some of the most insane munchies you’re ever likely to experience.
Sour Diesel is not a strain to try out with empty cupboards…trust us on that one!
In addition, the fact that Sour Diesel delivers such a wallop in terms of energy and motivation makes it pretty difficult to focus on anything for too long after hitting it. If you need an attention span of more than a couple of minutes max, this isn’t for you! Instead, maybe opt for something like Jack Herer, Blue Dream or Green Crack, which tend to be far more thoughtful and focused in the high they deliver.
Growing and Yields
THC concentrations come in at a reliable 18% to 20% or so, which is more than sufficient. Anyone considering growing Sour Diesel at home needs to be aware of the fact that the plants make their presence known in a big way fragrance-wise. Quite simply, it stinks while growing. Still, it usually does better in an indoor growing environment, anyway. Lavished with warmth, quality lighting and plenty of protection, you might find your efforts rewarded with up to 600g for every square metre. You can grow Sour Diesel outdoors, but only if you live somewhere consistently warm.
Certainly not the easiest strain of cannabis to grow, Sour Diesel is nonetheless worth persevering with if you know what you’re doing. In addition, beware any bargains you come across in terms of seeds and clones – this is NOT a cheap cannabis strain, so don’t be fooled into buying fakes.
