Sour Diesel Strain Origin
Created in the 1990’s in California, this strain has a lot of legend, but few facts. Fans claim it descends from Super Skunk and Chemdawg 91. What is known is that it is one of the best genetic hybrids on the market today.
Growing Sour Diesel Seeds
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.
We guarantee that your seeds will sprout and advise reading our germination instructions for guaranteed results.
Best Climate For Sour Diesel
Sour Diesel grows best in sunny, warm areas. Growers consider it a difficult strain to cultivate outdoors because it’s prone to powdery mildew. If you want to grow outside you want a dry and hot climate. The less humidity, the better.
If growing indoors, you are going to want to use high-intensity lights in a dry, sterile room. Indoors it’s easy to keep the plant compact and, on average, takes about 10 weeks for flowering. To learn more about cultivating both indoors and out, check out our grow guides to get your best grow right the first time!
Outdoors these ladies can get big (think Brienne of Tarth big). If you have the right climate, go for it! These big ladies produce massive yields.
Feeding Your Plants
Bergman’s Marijuana Fertilizers will help your Sour Diesel grow each step of the way. Be sure to get the correct NPK nutrients so you maximize the results fo your yield.
This sturdy, bushy cannabis plant is very resistant to diseases, molds, and pests that commonly affect growing marijuana.
If you want to be sure your plants are well protected from molds and bugs, our marijuana protector sets go well with even the most resilient of strains.
Flowering & Yield
When growing indoors, Sour Diesel plants take about 9 to 10 weeks of flowering before you can cut your plants. Under the right circumstances, you can yield around 16 ounces in a 3x3ft area.
If growing outdoors, expect to harvest sometime November at the latest. Sour Diesel performs very well outdoors, and with enough sunlight and proper feeding, you can have a monster bush on your hands.
Experiencing Sour Diesel
Do you look for strains that boost your mood, energy level, and deliver a loose relaxation that doesn’t maroon you on the couch? Then you’ll love Sour Diesel! It has a heavy euphoric feel that translates into ongoing energy that boosts your mood and mind.
We are talking full cerebral experience here with side effects of increased joy, happiness, and mental enjoyment. The best part? The high is both fast-acting and long-lasting! You’ll be feeling it up to five hours after use.
Don’t just take our word for it though. Check out the reviews people leave about it on this page. Warning – there’s a strong chance you’ll want to buy after reading them!
Also, because of its groovy genetics, you get to skip the anxiety-driven paranoia typical to most sativas.
Possible Adverse Reactions:
Sour D is known for having very few negative side effects. Sure you get the basic dry mouth, dry eyes, but a little water can go a long way in helping that. If you consume way too much (and we are talking a lot) you can get a touch of paranoia-but that’s incredibly rare.
If you haven’t used sativa before, this isn’t a great place to start. The upbeat nature of the high can be confusing if you were expecting a lazy couch riddled day.
Sour Diesel Smell & Taste
This is one of those cases where we need to tell you ahead of time to take our word for it. Why? Because you are going to love the way this stuff smells and tastes-even though it stinks like diesel fuel. That stench is only on the surface though. Running underneath it, like the lines on a long highway haul, are yellow citrus lemon notes and balanced herbal touches that keep you coming back for more. It sounds weird, but trust us when we say you’ll love it.
As far as the taste goes, no fuel there. It is a big citrus punch followed by the pleasing pucker afternotes sour patch kids gave you. Running alongside those notes are hints of densely sweet tropical fruits like pineapple and papaya. Although the description reads harsh, trust us when we say this has a smooth and delicious taste, from start to afterglow that you’ll love and come back for again and again!
Uses for Sour Diesel
Just about every strain of marijuana has the same positive side effects. Sour Diesel is no different. It’s great for stress, loss of appetite, anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and more.
Its demand in the medical community is growing because of how long you feel the results. With Sour Diesel you get long relief from short bursts of use. It also carries the added benefit of relaxation without the tired heaviness some strains produce.
That’s what makes it so great for people suffering from mental-related issues and depression. You get the relief and relaxation needed to boost your mood, but you aren’t left exhausted and marooned on the couch!
