Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients.
Its stimulating effects have won Sour Diesel a seat in the sativa category, but its poorly documented origins leave much room for debate. According to growing guru Ed Rosenthal, Sour Diesel originates from Mexican Sativa and Chemo. Other folklore will tell us Sour Diesel descends from Chemdawg 91, Northern Lights, and an unknown Skunk phenotype.
Small yet focused, Berkeley Patient’s Care Collective specializes in the classics done right—like this spot-on cut of the legendary Sour Diesel. Potent and pungent, Sour Diesel is the East Coast daughter of arguably the most potent strain on the planet—Colorado’s Chemdog. Sour D usually retains Chemdog’s smaller, compact bud structure, but this Sour Diesel nug is huge while still boasting the trademark trichome density and characteristic astringent-funk. Under the scope, we’re clearly looking at the offspring of the ’dog—with its matting of trichomes that are mostly clear with a few amber heads. Testing into the upper bounds of potency, this Sour Diesel has a big, sour, lemon, fuel taste, perfect for after-work but not exactly sleep medication. Patients suffering from depression, as well as IBS, PMS and ADD, among other report finding relief with this hybrid.
