About Sour Diesel

An artist’s best friend

Sour Diesel is one of those classic strains that is popular with creative types around the world because of its energizing, dreamy creative high. With a THC level of around 20% Sour Diesel is balanced just right to let your imagination run wild, without losing focus on what you’re doing. Right off the bat you will feel an invigorating rush of energy, followed by a relaxing head buzz that puts your mind at ease and gives you a general feeling of well-being.

Medicinal use Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is one of the most popular medical weeds worldwide. With a THC content of 20% (CBD between 0.3-1.0%) it is ideal for treating stress related issues. It will also help you to alleviate anxiety, depression and even bipolar disorder and ADD/ADHD. Besides that, it works well against nausea and migraines. Sour Diesel is best smoked during the daytime and NOT suitable for treating insomnia.

Diesel Fuel

Sour Diesel is a 90% sativa strain that gets its name from its very characteristic, strong, pungent Diesel fuel-like aroma, with a slight citrus aftertaste. Its heritage is still up for debate on whether it’s a cross between a Mexican Sativa and 91 Chemdog. Others say it’s a mix between Mass Super Skunk, Northern Lights and Chemdawg, but most agree the Sour Diesel strain was cultivated in the early 90’s by cannabis breeder Chem Dog.
