Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes this marijuana strain a top choice among medical patients. This strain took root in the early 90’s with cannabis breeder Chem Dog, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdawg, Northern Lights, and a Skunk phenotype Medical uses Sour Diesel is highly effective in relieving stress, anxiety, and pain. Also, there is some suggestion that it may be helpful in alleviating the symptoms associated with chronic depression.
This marijuana strain is one of the most widely smoked Sativa strains of all time. If you haven’t heard of this strain, someone you know has already tried it (and probably loves it).
So why is it a favorite among medical marijuana patients and cannabis connoisseurs world-wide? It is because the Sour Diesel strain has got a distinct, pungent gassy stench that is coupled with an exciting burst of energy. Having Sativa lineage, it is correct to assume that Sour diesel will predominately affect the mind.
Patients typically use it as their first source of medication to start the day; it’ll have you feeling awake and ready to go. Sour D affects your head almost exclusively; there’s absolutely no couch-lock or heavy body feeling. The way I think of Sour Diesel is similar to how a dog reacts when it sees a squirrel. Head perks up, instantly aware of your surroundings, and sort of tuned into your environment like you’ve never been before. It seems to work with the brain to create tons of ideas and energy.
All of this makes it very hard to focus on the task at hand. Personally would rather medicate with Jack Herer, Blue Dream or Green Crack for more of a clear-headed high conducive to deep-thought. After all, the trance-like effect makes it really easy to get distracted when medicating with the Sour Diesel strain.
