Sour Diesel Strain Genetics
When it comes to an epic heritage, you’ll struggle to find a cannabis strain that comes close to Sour Diesel marijuana seeds. This high THC level strain (up to 25%) is the product of two Cannabis Cup winners, and two of the most popular, top quality seeds at our seeds bank, Chemdawg and Super Skunk.
With both of these impressive strains having instantly recognisable aromas, what you get from Sour Diesel feminized cannabis is a combination of those legendary scents. But don’t assume this hybrid to be simply a tribute, Sour Diesel is a distinctive and unique cultivar that has already earned itself a place in the cannabis hall of fame.
Sour Diesel Strain Terpene Profile
Sour Diesel’s terpene profile is the reason for the diesel-centric aroma of this high THC strain, as well as the earthy citrus hints that soften the petrol-heavy flavour.
Caryophyllene is the dominant terpene found in this hybrid cannabis strain, providing a spicy, peppery touch on the tongue that is also the main reason for the famed aroma that diesel strain types are known for. The citrus tingle on the exhale comes from the presence of limonene, a terpene that provides a lemon scent and flavour.
Also present, myrcene, creates that herbal, earthy tone that subdues the otherwise dominant flavours present in Sour Diesel.
Sour Diesel Strain Effects
Sour Diesel, despite its very high THC level, delivers an uplifting, energising buzz that brings a world of creativity with it. An underlying sense of euphoria accompanies these sensations, to help you find joy in even the most mundane of daily tasks.
Sour D is a sativa-dominant strain that suits daytime use, as it won’t stick you to the sofa, Instead, you’ll receive a hefty dose of energy and a creativity boost that should allow your imagination to run wild for the rest of the day.
Sour Diesel Strain Medical Benefits
There are numerous potential medical marijuana properties offered by Sour Diesel feminized seeds thanks to the combination of the high THC content and the terpene profile.
This fast-acting hybrid strain may provide relief for chronic pain symptoms, similarly to its parent Super Skunk; Sour Diesel has the potential to support pain response in the body and reduce painful sensations.
Additionally, the presence of limonene may provide medical cannabis potential for the reduction of depression-related symptoms with myrcene thought to act as a regulator, possibly enhancing the medicinal effects of the other terpenes present in these marijuana seeds.
How to Grow Sour Diesel Strain Seeds
When grown either indoors or outdoors, Sour D feminized cannabis seeds create sturdy, resistant plants that grow compact, yet dense, offering a very high yield without taking up too much space in the grow room despite its sativa-dominance.
Responsive to both SOG and SCROG growing methods, Sour Diesel feminized seeds are easy to grow indoors and outdoors while the flowering time of just nine weeks when growing indoors is a relatively quick turnaround for such an impressive strain. However, for the best results, we advise giving these cannabis seeds a full 11 weeks to grow.
Outdoor growers who live in mild and reasonably dry climates can expect a high yield of pungent, diesel-scented, crystal-covered resinous buds to be ready to go in late October or early November.
