Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel, also known as Sour D, is a hybrid strain of cannabis. It is a cross between 91 Chemdawg and a super skunk/northern lights. Sour Diesel is a Mexican Sativa crossed to an Afghani indica.[1] The strain produces a fast acting, dreamy high that, due to an 80% concentration of sativa, yields excellent cerebral effects. It is best known for its extremely pungent sour scent as well as its uplifting, mood enhancing effects.

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.[2]


This strain is known to contain upwards of 20% of the active ingredient, THC,[1] and as of late 2011 it sells for between 8 and 12 dollars a gram at dispensaries near Seattle, and in Colorado dispensaries for $10–15 a gram and about $45 for an eighth of an ounce. In states where consumption of marijuana is against the law, Sour Diesel tends to run around $20–25 a gram and $50–60 for an eighth.


Sour Diesel's flowers are light green with an abundance of orange hairs. Trichome production is very high in this strain. This produces buds that are covered in a frosty white layer of THC. The leaves of Sour Diesel are thin and the plant grows tall like most sativa strains. [3]

Growing environment

Sour Diesel stretches in the first three weeks of flowering. By maturity Sour Diesel could reach 6 feet indoors. Flowering time is approximately ten weeks indoors, while outdoor plants will finish in early October, although grown indoors using a hydroponic growing system is highly recommended. It can be grown indoors and outdoors with average yields ranging between 450 and 550 grams per square meters.[4]
