Originating from the East Coast, this strain shook the cannabis scene during the early 90s. Sour Diesel or Sour D is believed to be a cross of Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk. Although its origin was shrouded in mystery for years, its undeniable appeal has never been debated.
Sour Diesel is a heavy hitter that starts as a heady cerebral high that transforms into an epic wave of euphoria and creativity. It’s a good morning strain because it can help you focus, become inspired, and feel energized. Medical users say it helps lower stress, anxiety, pain, and depression.
You can grow this Sativa-dominant strain indoors or outdoors. However, given Sour Diesel’s robust size and lanky height, growing outdoors or in a greenhouse gives it more room to stretch and makes it easier to manage. Plus, an outdoor grow will produce higher yields, of 600 grams per sm or more. Whereas, growing indoors yields 1kg or more per plant. Sour D does require some patience, heavy feeding, and dedication as its flowering time lasts 10 to 11 weeks. It does well in a warm climate with temperatures ranging from 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Finally, it’s ready for harvest in mid to late October.
The buds on Sour Diesel are often medium-sized with pale to mid-green colored leaves. Its pistols range from pink to amber to bright orange hues. It’s common for the nugs to be covered in a frosty coat of lustrous trichomes. And the unforgettable and distinctive smell of Sour D is rich in a skunky, diesel, and gasoline type fragrance.
