The Sour Diesel strain was first grown in California during the 90s and has, since then, become highly popular amongst cannabis connoisseurs. By combining Chemdawg and Super Skunk, this Sativa-dominant strain is used for recreational and medical purposes. Users are known to experience an energizing and creative sensation without experiencing couch lock. It’s also a popular replacement for those early morning coffees as it instantly revives the mind and body allowing users to focus on the day ahead.
Sour Diesel (Sour D) Uses & Properties
The high THC content of Sour D can cause an increase in anxiety for new users which is why it’s recommended for those who have experience with more potent strains. Users who are familiar with this marijuana strain will immediately recognize the pungent and skunky aroma. The ‘sour’ in the name comes from its lemon zest and citrus fruit flavor. This scent then gives way to the strong diesel smell once Sour Deez is lit.
Medicinal marijuana users enjoy the Sour Diesel strain for its powerful effect on the mind and emotions. Patients dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, chronic pain, and headaches often take this strain first thing in the morning. A dry mouth and eyes are common side effects of this strain. It is also known to increase anxiety if over-consumed so it’s important to know your limits.

Sour D Growing Information
It’s recommended to grow Sour Diesel from quality feminized clones because it can be a challenging plant for first-time growers. When growing indoors, Sour Diesel will take around 9-10 weeks to flower. Growing outdoors requires lots of direct sunlight because when too little sunlight reaches the plant, it will flower too early and produce a less potent bud. Although growing outdoors is trickier, the yield is higher with around 25 ounces or more per plant compared to 18 ounces per square meter when grown indoors.
