Sour Diesel is an infamously classic sativa strain known for its pungent aroma and premium genetics. The sativa is a cross between Chemdawg and Super Skunk. It first became popular in the 1990s and has gained legendary status ever since. The popular effects and gassy aroma of the sativa have resulted in the strain being used as a parent to award-winning strains like Zours, Zour Larry, and many others.  

Sour Diesel is a favorite at our Everett dispensary. Continue reading to learn more about this iconic strain. 

Sour Diesel Appearance 

The most notable aspect of the Sour Diesel strain is its skunky aroma; the smell makes it extremely clear why the strain earned its name. The sativa is known for having one of the stinkiest aromas of any cannabis strain. The bud gives off a strong odor of skunk and gas with notes of citrus. 

The look of the nugs is another hallmark of the original strain. The strain’s nugs have that “classic pot look” with frosty green leaves from a thick layer of trichomes and amber pistils throughout. Moreover, the light-green nugs are super dense in form. 

The most abundant terpene in Sour Diesel is caryophyllene. This terpene is what gives the strain its diesel flavor and aroma. The terpene is known to be spicy with hints of cinnamon and gas. Additionally, users may experience stress-relieving relaxation from the effects of the terpene.

Sour Diesel Strain Experience 

The strain contains around 19% THC. On the inhale, users will be able to detect the gassy, skunky flavors of the strain with a lemon taste on the exhale. The sativa nature of the strain lends potentially euphoric effects. Users may experience a potentially invigorating cerebral high. The possible powerful effects of the strain are one reason why the strain has become so legendary in the industry. 

While consuming it in its flower form, Sour Diesel offers an extremely smooth smoke with an aftertaste of that citrusy gas. 

The potentially uplifting effects of the strain may make it a great option for a morning smoke session. If you’re someone who likes to get creative, Sour Diesel may be the perfect strain to get your ideas flowing. 

Due to the potent head high associated with the strain, this sativa would not be the best option for aiding in medical issues such as insomnia. Instead, medicinal users can utilize the strain to help treat ailments such as anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue.
