Sour Diesel is a hybrid strain of Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica.


American journalist Jeff Hobbs credited the strain's development to his friend Robert Peace prior to Peace's death in 2011. Which is complete fabrication.[1] An alternative version attributes it to a New York City grower known as "AJ" during the mid-1990s.[2]

In popular culture[edit]

Sour Diesel has appeared in works by Ryan David Jahn[3] and Toby Rogers.[4] The strain gave its name to a rap album by Doap Nixon,[5] as well as a single by Dame Grease.[6] 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." [7] It is a favorite strain of rapper Wiz Khalifa.[8] 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.[9]
