Sour Diesel, also called Sour D, is a very popular sativa dominant hybrid strain, distinguished by the fuel-like chemical smell of its flowers. It has a mostly sativa head high with some subtle physical indica relaxation, making it popular among recreational and medical users alike. This is a potent strain, with a THC content that has been measured at between 20% and 25%. Because the underground cannabis market of the 1980s and 90s operated without any kind of lasting documentation, the exact origins of this strain are not known. Sour Diesel has round, medium-sized buds with leaves that tend to be yellowish-green. This is a heavy yielding strain with a very powerful smell. Sour Diesel is good for pain, stress or insomnia. Also good for PTSD, ADD and ADHD.
Flowering period is about 9 to 10 weeks.
