Sour Diesel is extremely potent and highly-prized for its medicinal efficacy and well deserves it's epic reputation.

However, the first time you taste Sour Diesel there’s no doubt that it is the distinctive bitter-lemon flavour that really grabs the attention. No other cannabis strain has the same citrus kick and kerosene aftertaste; few other cannabis strains can compete when it comes to the pungency of odour. Imagine eating a packet of extra sour gummies mixed with sharp lemon sherbert and you’ll be on the right lines to describe the unique flavour of Sour Diesel.

Connoisseurs love this combination of power and sensory stimulation, but it is also popular with growers: the plant has a high yield, and thrives both indoors and outdoors as long as the conditions are warm enough. Although there are several competing explanations of its origins, a popular story is that it was created when a Massachusetts Super Skunk/Chemdawg pollination occurred entirely by accident: and if this is true, then it has to be one of the happiest accidents in horticultural history!

The “Sour D” high is heavily cerebral – many admirers of the strain consider its psychedelic qualities to be the most significant part of its appeal – however this can present a challenge for the novice, who might find the ‘soaring’ effect disconcerting. When used sensibly, Sour Diesel offers an exceptionally long-lasting and dreamy experience, and it has been suggested that this could make it an effective antidepressant.

With a THC content of over 20% and a Sativa concentration of around 80%, it is considered to be an ideal strain for the management of stress-related symptoms; there are also those who claim that it can ameliorate the impact of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), although scientific data on this assertion is sparse at present. The Sour Diesel plant is tall and thin, generally flowering in 55-70 days, and it produces pale buds with orange threads. The yield is usually around 500g per square metre, and some sort of odour control is recommended... unless you love the smell of napalm in the morning!

It is unusual for a strain with such a high yield to be so strong, since these two qualities are often thought of as mutually exclusive, and this does mean that some growers are inclined to try to pass off inferior hybrids as the real thing: if you've tried it before, you'll know the difference.
