Sour Diesel is one of the most widely smoked Sativa strains of all time. If you haven’t heard of this strain, someone you know has already tried it (and probably loves it).

The Sour Diesel Strain Is Really Popular Among MMJ Patients

So why is Sour Diesel a favorite among medical marijuana patients and cannabis connoisseurs world-wide? It is because the Sour Diesel strain has got a distinct, pungent gassy stench that is coupled with an exciting burst of energy. Having Sativa lineage, it is correct to assume that Sour diesel will predominately affect the mind.

“Patients can expect the Sour Diesel strain to make them alert, energetic, and even slightly light-headed.”

Patients typically use Sour Diesel as their first source of medication to start the day;  it’ll have you feeling awake and ready to go. Sour D affects your head almost exclusively; there’s absolutely no couch-lock or heavy body feeling. The way I think of Sour Diesel is similar to how a dog reacts when it sees a squirrel. Head perks up, instantly aware of your surroundings, and sort of tuned into your environment like you’ve never been before. It seems to work with the brain to create tons of ideas and energy.
All of this makes it very hard to focus on the task at hand. Personally would rather medicate with Jack Herer, Blue Dream or Green Crack for more of a clear-headed high conducive to deep-thought. After all, the trance-like effect makes it really easy to get distracted when medicating with the Sour Diesel strain.

Sour Diesel Strain Genetics & Where It Comes From

The specific lineage of Sour Diesel is tricky and documented very poorly. Some believe the Sour Diesel strain simply comes from a phenotype of Chemdawg that was slightly different and more on the Sativa side of the equation. Others believe Sour Diesel stems from the mixture of Original Diesel (which consists of Chemdawg x Super Skunk x Northern Lights) and an unknown Skunk phenotype (most likely consisting of Skunk x Hawaiian x Northern Lights).

Tell-Tale Signs of a Good Sour Diesel Batch

The smell of Sour Diesel should be intoxicating. It should remind you of an overpowering stench of lemons and diesel fuel. It should be a pungent stench. The pictures attached are a good example of what a good batch of Sour D looks like. A+ medication that is sure to explode in popularity as more and more people make the switch to medical marijuana.
