In the annals of modern cannabis breeding, few strains are as celebrated as the all-powerful Sour Diesel. While its origins are disputed, it is believed to be the result of a cross between Chemdawg, Northern Lights and a Skunk variant. The fourth most popular strain in America as of 2016, it’s known for its soaring, lucid high and distinctive diesel aroma. When grown and cured properly, Sour Diesel delivers a powerful initial rush and a lengthy plateau. If clear thinking is a must, Sour Diesel is a safe bet.
Thanks to high levels of terpenes like alpha-pinene, caryophyllene and humulene, Sour Diesel boasts a strong pine resin smell. Growers will find that Sour Diesel plants more than double in height after flowing occurs. Depending on the growing conditions in question, Sour Diesel plants may require training and trellising to produce the best results. If everything goes according to plan, you can expect to see plenty of dense, light-green buds when harvest time rolls around.
