Sour Tsunami: A Tidal Force of Medicine

The Sour Tsunami strain boasts high CBD percentages.

Developed by Lawrence Ringo of the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective, Sour Tsunami was bred by crossing Sour Diesel with NYC Diesel for about four years, where it was continually crossed back to a Sour Diesel clone.

“Sour Tsunami is considered to be 60% Sativa and 40% Indica, with a sweet yet musky stench, typical of most CBD-rich strains.”

This was known as Double Diesel, and eventually was crossed with a local’s Sativa-dominant strain known as Ferrari. One final cross back with Sour Diesel was made to produce what is known today as Sour Tsunami.

It is believed that each Sour Tsunami seed has roughly a 25% chance at containing 10-11% CBD (and 6-7% THC). This makes Sour Tsunami one of the highest tested CBD strains available to patients today, and one of the most sought-out forms of medicine in the world.

What is CBD?

For decades, it was widely accepted that THC was the only active ingredient in cannabis. People believed that THC was responsible for the stoney high, as well as the root of all the plant’s medicinal benefits. Thus, growers did everything they could to boost THC percentages of their crop — without knowing they were focusing on the wrong cannabinoid.

Studies now prove that there are a lot of different cannabinoids that work and interact with the body in different ways. The new cannabinoid that has everyone’s attention is known as CBD, and for good reason.

“Study after study has been coming out showing the medicinal values of CBD.”

It’s been found to help patients fight inflammation-related disorders, as well as successfully beat different forms of aggressive cancer. Thus, lots of growers and caregivers have shifted focus and have began providing patients with CBD-rich strains, to help fight whatever the ailment.

The high amounts of CBD as opposed to THC, allows patients to keep their cognitive ability and clear-mind without the stoned feeling associated with high amounts of THC typically found in most marijuana strains available today.
