Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel, also known as Sour D, is a hybrid strain of cannabis. It is a cross between 91 Chemdawg and a super skunk/northern lights. NYC Diesel is a Mexican Sativa crossed to an Afghani indica.[1] The strain produces a fast acting, dreamy high that, due to an 80% concentration of sativa, yields excellent cerebral effects. It is best known for its extremely pungent sour scent as well as its uplifting, mood enhancing effects.

Medical uses[edit]

Sour Diesel is highly effective in relieving stress, anxiety, and pain. Also, there is some suggestion that it may be helpful in alleviating the symptoms associated with chronic depression.[2]

Characteristics[edit]

This strain is known to contain upwards of 20% of the active ingredient, THC,[1] and as of late 2011 it sells for between 8 and 12 dollars a gram at dispensaries near Seattle, and in Colorado dispensaries for $10–15 a gram and about $45 for an eighth of an ounce. In states where consumption of marijuana is against the law, Sour Diesel tends to run around $20–25 a gram and $50–60 for an eighth.

Growing environment[edit]

Sour Diesel is a tall, thin green plant. It stretches in the first three weeks of flowering. By maturity Sour Diesel could reach 6 feet indoors. Flowering time is approximately ten weeks indoors, while outdoor plants will finish in early October, although grown indoors using a hydroponic growing system is highly recommended. Sour Diesel commonly displays orange hairs, and a strong diesel fuel scent and flavor. It can be grown indoors and outdoors with average yields ranging between 450 and 550 grams per square meters.[3]
