Sour Diesel is a cross strain between NYC Diesel and Lemon Haze that was developed by a couple of growers in Vancouver, BC back in the early 2000’s.
It’s been a mainstay in hundreds of clubs around the country and is grown as a specialty variety by many professional and hobbyist cultivators in California and New York. This isn’t by accident though, as the people who live in the higher population states tend to have higher stress jobs, which by default require you to have your wits about you when dealing with dozens of clients or customers at a time. It makes this the kind of strain that is hugely popular with working individuals who also like to medicate to handle the challenges of their day.
Upon first inhalation a wide variety of flavors and scents flush your senses, including honey and grape with a slight twist of citrus on top. This is mellowed out by an almost earthy undertone coursing through the exhale, which all in all makes it a very tasty strain overall.
The effect is almost immediate, and feels very euphoric right after the initial draw. You’ll want to have people to talk to, games to play, or art to create because this is highly energetic strain that will either have you bouncing off the walls or talking someone’s ear off about the natural wonders of the universe. Personally I’m a fan of the Diesel family whenever I know I have plans for the day, or just don’t have the spare time to be zoned out to the point of couch lock.
