Sour Diesel by Dispensary Near Me

Sour Diesel, also known as Sour D, is an extremely popular strain, distinguished by the fuel-like chemical smell of its flowers. It has a mostly Sativa head high with some subtle physical indica relaxation, making it extremely popular among recreational and medical users alike. This is a very potent Sativa strain, with a THC content that had been measured at between 20% and 25%.

The exact origins of Sour Diesel are not known because the underground cannabis market of the 1980s and 90s operated without any kind of lasting documentation. Even though a definitive agreement on its original genetic makeup doesn’t exist, Sour Diesel’s popularity still has made it the subject of much speculation. Some claim that true Sour Diesel was derived as a distinct phenotype of an original strain simply named Diesel. Others say that it was a phenotype of Chem Dawg that leaned more towards Sativa than Indica. Still others believe that it was a cross of Chem Dawg and Northern Lights, or perhaps Chem Dawg, Northern Lights, and Skunk #1.

Sour Diesel has round, medium-sized buds with leaves that appear to be yellowish-green. Red hairs called pistils, structures that operate to catch pollen from male plants, contrast with the densely-packed leaves. When properly cured, the flowers are somewhat sticky – the dusting of trichomes is not as immediately obvious as it is on more resinous strains like White Widow. When breaking open buds reveals trichomes coating the insides of the dense flowers. The buds have an overpowering gasoline smell that is true to this strain’s name. The odour also has some hints of orange. Breaking open or grinding the buds intensifies this scent, and adds components of musk & pine sap. Sour Diesel has a notoriously harsh, acrid smoke that might cause users to cough or make their sinuses water. The smoke has a sour and vaguely skunky taste that could be unpleasant to some individuals. On the exhale, the diesel’s almost ammonia-like tang stings the palate and may linger for a long time afterward. Consumers trying to remain discreet should be warned that this is a very pungent strain whose odour can carry for quite a distance.
