While Sour Diesel’s Chemdawg parent has mysterious origins, it has earned a name for itself in the cannabis community due to its notoriously pungent smell and heavily potent effects. Meanwhile, Sour Diesel’s other parents, Super Skunk, is an indica-dominant cross of the Skunk #1 and Afghani strains. It’s known for its bold, relaxing effects that consumers say that they can feel “throughout their whole bodies.”
Sour Diesel is a very popular strain that first debuted in the underground market in the 1980s. It generally has a 90/10 sativa to indica ratio and features an above-average THC ratio.
Sour Diesel’s energizing effects arrive shortly after the first hit of the vape, and many say that it gives them a mood boost and a new perspective on their creative endeavors. Some describe its onset as a “warm and pleasant head rush” that makes them feel chatty if in a social setting.
While Sour Diesel does also bring on a body buzz, it’s generally agreed that the consumer won’t feel a strong couch-lock, especially if consuming it in conservative doses. Sour Diesel’s high typically lasts for about two to three hours. Due to its moderate effects cannabis enthusiasts of all experience levels can enjoy vaping Sour Diesel.
Overall, consumers say that Sour Diesel leaves them feeling happy, uplifted, euphoric, energetic, or creative. Some remark that it can serve as an aphrodisiac as well.
Sour Diesel’s sour and pungent taste profile indeed lives up to its name. It also has a sour, thick, and diesel-like aroma that is fairly uncommon among sativa strains.
