Sour Kosher Strain Genetics
Sour Kosher has some serious legacy behind it, being the child of DNA Genetics’ own multi-time Cannabis Cup award-winning strain Kosher Kush and the bonafide collectable that is the AJ cut of Sour Diesel (Sour D to its friends). That’s a lot to live up to, but Sour Kosher is up to the challenge. This powerful, high THC strain inherits the finer traits of its parents and moulds them into a unique personality that’s all it’s own.
Due to the genetic background of these feminized seeds, expect tall, leafy plants and a fast flowering time from these DNA Genetics seeds, as well as high yields and a euphoric buzz that can remove the stresses of even the toughest of days.
Sour Kosher Strain Terpene Profile
There are two distinct flavours going on here, with gassy, petrol heavy Diesel tones from one side of the lineage, and herbal, earthy, old-school touches from the Kush side. This complex and inviting Sour Kosher flavour combination is due in large part to the strain’s rich terpene profile.
From the Sour Diesel side, the spicy, gassy tones are produced by one of the Sour Kosher abundant terpenes, caryophyllene, found in black pepper, while the fully rounded Diesel aromas are completed by the presence of limonene, adding a touch of citrus on exhale. From the Kush side, the earth, woody, herby, vintage Skunk style scent that carries in the room after exhale is due to myrcene.
Sour Kosher Strain Effects
Above all else, the high created by Sour Kosher provides an intense and unrelenting sense of happiness that is both fast-acting and long-lasting. The Sour Kosher THC level (over 20%) provides an uplifting, near euphoric sensation to bury itself deep in your mind, providing upbeat conversational topics for social situations, and exciting dreams later on.
Talking of dreams, the underlying chill that comes alongside the happiness won’t give you couchlock or send you to sleep straight away. But, this Sour Diesel x Kosher Kush strain may well aid in the general after work wind-down, making sure you’re as peaceful as you are giggly by bedtime!
Sour Kosher Strain Medical Benefits
Potential Sour Kosher medical benefits are passed down through this cannabis strain’s impressive family tree, with both Sour Diesel and Kosher used as stress relievers. The caryophyllene content combines with the THC and may enhance mood by working with the endocannabinoid system, while limonene is thought to provide assistance in reducing stress too.
The endocannabinoid system also helps pain control in the body, and the cannabinoid and terpene combo of THC and caryophyllene may also help here, alleviating the symptoms of chronic pain in those living with migraines, and fibromyalgia amongst others.
How to Grow Sour Kosher Strain Seeds
Despite being a sativa-dominant strain, the Sour Kosher flowering time and growing traits are more characteristic of the indica-leaning Kosher Kush. From the germination of the feminised marijuana seeds, growers shouldn’t have to wait more than 10 weeks, usually as little as 9, before these plants are ready to go. The plants grow tall, but not too leafy, so occasional trimming is all that’s needed to enjoy the high Sour Kosher yields of over 500g/m2.
Those growing Sour Kosher cannabis seeds outdoors will probably want to use a greenhouse unless in Mediterranean climates with a warm and dry late autumn to ensure optimum results when the plants are ready to harvest in early October. Expect long, beefy buds, coated in resin, with gorgeous hues of purple and orange. These enticing smelling nugs, a seed bank favourite waiting to happen.
