Chances are that if you’ve been smoking weed for very long you’ve probably had a hit or 100 of Sour Diesel.

You would be hard pressed to walk into a dispensary that didn’t have a few variations of the Sour D. So let’s break out our best vaporizers and give this herb a try!
Sour Diesel is a favorite among us cannabis connoisseurs a bright heady sativa that is excellent for daytime use. The herb is easily identifiable by it’s pale lime green coloring with dark green and orange leaves. I imagine the Sour Diesel got it’s name from the pungent fuel, citrus, and maybe a splash of milk aroma. That sounds gross I know but it’s much nicer than it sounds. Like a fine wine!

Where does it come from?
The lineage of Sour Diesel is a tricky question! We’ve heard its a cannabis sativa strain but it’s commonly said that Sour Diesel comes from a phenotype of Chemdawg. The other side says that Sour Diesel is an Original Diesel (Chemdawg, Super Skunk, and Northern Lights) and a random Skunk phenotype (most likely Skunk, Hawaiian, and Northern Lights). Okay so we are no botanist over here but what we do know is that the Sour Diesel is awesome!
Medically Sour Diesel is known for energizing effects, stress relief, pain relief, and as a treatment for depression. The antidepressant effects of Sour Diesel are well commented on. Some medical users say this is their go to herb to start the day and get moving.
