Sour Diesel Auto is a cross between a ruderalis, otherwise known as an auto-flowering cannabis plant, and the highly esteemed strain, Sour Diesel. Together these parents gave birth to a fast-finishing, Sativa-dominant plant. Due to its short life cycle, you can have two harvests during the year that combine for an abundance of high-quality, resinous, diesel-smelling buds.
Because of the ruderalis genetics, the THC levels aren’t as high as the parents, but still, give you a great potency with THC levels reaching around 16%. So, the soaring tripping stone is still the main feeling, yet it is a little more balanced in this auto-flowering version. Customers love to smoke this strain early in the day because of its cerebral hit and uplifting effects that can keep you energized for hours. Also, its lineage gives the strain a bit of a physical buzz. There’s definitely a dominance of a happy, energized feeling, but it’s supported and balanced by a deep sense of calm.
Sour Diesel Auto has a fast seed-to harvest timeline of 60 to 70 days, but the plant still manages to yield generously, and it produces a potency that its parents would be proud of. When you grow indoors, the plants maintain a short height of 60 to 80 cm and can generate yields of 300 grams per M2. You also have the choice to grow this strain outdoors because it has a high resistance to mold and fungus. Outdoors, the plants are usually taller but rarely reach heights of 100 cm or more. Also, outdoor yields can bring in 400 grams per M2.
This auto-flowering plant stays true to its ruderalis genetics in terms of its appearance. The plants are short and bushy but showcase big, lush buds. Also, its gorgeous nugs shine bright with crystals and long orange hairs.
As for the aroma, it’s very similar to its name with gassy, diesel-like smells, and noticeable lemony citrus hints. During the later stages of flowering, this aroma becomes powerful. However, it’s not to the point of being overwhelming.
The remarkable reputation of Sour D is undeniable. So its auto-flowering version is an obvious choice for fans who love the idea of a speedy growth cycle with a harvest that’s ready within months of planting the seeds. In addition, this strain has a great taste, possibly an even better smell, and a favorite among many smokers we know.
The smoke offers a sour lemon and slightly herbal taste. Since the diesel flavour mixes so well with the sour candy taste, it makes a delicious and tasty treat for all the senses involved. Also, there are additional earthy skunk flavours from the ruderalis, although subtle, they are still present and add nicely to the mix. Lastly, the Sour Diesel Auto strain provides a clean and smooth smoke, making it gentle on the throat with each hit.
