The Introduction to Sour Diesel
The Sour Diesel Hemp Flower strain is one of the latest additions to the wide range of hemp plants across the globe.
The parent’s of Sour Diesel are highly regarded and sought after: Chemdog 91 and Super Skunk. Chemdog 91 strain is an Sativa dominant hybrid. It smells like pineapples, skunk and urine, (that is a bit odd to describe) while the flavor is mostly sweet pineapples with notes of fuel against skunky urine. Super Skunk sort of says it all and I don’t think we have to describe the scent!
The plant grows with lighter buds with some level of feeding required during flowering, bulking and the last stages of cultivation. The ideal places for cultivation are those similar to California and Oregon; with temperature ranges between 69 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. This plant is around 100-130 centimeters in height, with an average yield of about 500 grams per square meter.
The species hemp sativa has been cultivated for ages for the past 3 centuries and is harvested in various different forms according to its intended use.
The Aroma & Flavor
Sour Lemon with Hints of Gas
Sour Diesel has a very distinct and pungent smell that will punch you in the face, just like that of a combination of fuel (gasoline-like odor), citrus, skunk, and spices. The sharp smell gives a strong kick of citrus and fuel aroma which gives a tickling sensation to the nose. With the parents of this strain it’s no wonder how Sour Diesel gets its peculiar aroma. Offensive and overwhelming, some users claim to detect notes of sharp cheese that intertwine with gasoline, hence the name on top of the skunky odor to give you a hemp experience worth remembering. However, I can not smell the hint of sharp cheese (and I know my cheese!!) but I can smell the pungent sour citrus aroma but let’s be honest, we didn’t buy this to smell, we bought this to smoke!
As I smoked the hemp I felt a skunk filled and sour citrus (lemon) like taste which gave a lemony feel while smoking. I found the flavor has the tendency to change depending on the age of the extracted form of this plant. I do not recommend this strain for novice or beginner smokers due to the smell that is super pungent and the pack the hemp delivers.
The Effects and Experience
Within the first few minutes of taking my first hit I felt the hemp fast acting and delivering my attitude adjustment to a more confident and successful version of myself. I was impacted with more energy and more ideas about my business. My creativity was flowing and I have no complaints about this one other than the smell could be more pleasant but with parents like Super Skunk that isn’t going to happen. Dare I say I felt a relaxing buzz that allowed me to get my tasks completed and the creativity flow was like nothing I have ever experienced. I will be putting this hemp flower in my permanent rotation.
The Sour Diesel strain is sativa-dominant, with some Indica effects at times if allowed to grow late into flowering. The chemical in Sour Diesel can help one feel happy and uplifted with vibrant energy, giving birth to some creative ideas, or at least that was my experience.
THC and CBD
Sour Diesel is considered a potent strain, with a CBD content ranging 20.2% and 25%. The THC is very low at .03% or less. The high CBD content is what hemp aficionados are looking for in a strain.
Who is this Best Suited for?
This strain is best for experience hemp users and not first time users or beginners. I would describe Sour Diesel CBD Flower premium indoor bud as a fast-acting and CBD potent with energy! If you are a beginner this strain will overwhelm you. This particular one is sought after by experienced smokers that have some experience under their belts. If your a beginner I would suggest……. to get started before giving this one a try.
