Sour Diesel is a hybrid strain of Cannabis sativa. Canadian medical cannabis producer Aphria has rebranded Sour Diesel as Kusawa in order to "circumvent public stigma".[1]

Origins[edit]

American journalist Jeff Hobbs credited the strain's development to his friend Robert Peace prior to Peace's death in 2011.[2] An alternative version attributes it to a New York City grower known as "AJ" during the mid-1990s.[3]

In popular culture[edit]

Sour Diesel has appeared in works by Ryan David Jahn[4] and Toby Rogers.[5] The strain gave its name to a rap album by Doap Nixon,[6] as well as a single by Dame Grease.[7] The Flatbush Zombies single "Face-Off", a rap song about recreational drug use, also mentions Sour Diesel at the start of its second verse: "Perfect day, 10 bitches, and some sour diesel." [8] It is a favorite strain of rapper Wiz Khalifa.[9] In season 3 episode 4 of the online TV show Broad City, Sour Diesel is featured as one of the cannabis-strains in possession of one of the two main characters.[10]
