Everything You Wanted to Know About the Sativa Strain “Sour Diesel”

What is Sour Diesel?

Sour diesel is a type of sativa-dominant strain of cannabis.  People routinely consume it by smoking it, ingesting it, or vaping it.  It is one of the most well-known and popular sativa strain, and weed strain in general, that exists in the market today.

Why Does It have the name Sour Diesel?

Sometimes referred to as Sour D or East Coat Sour Diesel, “Sour Diesel” strain is a sativa dominant type of weed which is known for a powerful effect and an aroma which references diesel fuel.  It is one of the more well-known, pungent strains of cannabis.

How did Sour Diesel originate? 

The story goes that a crop strain of 1991 Chemdog was pollinated with RFK Skunk/Hawaiian, also known as DNL, entirely by accident.  There are some who say that it was pollinated by Massachusetts Super Skunk—the true origins remain a mystery.  But like with many sativa strains, and cannabis strains in general,  accidents through cross pollination have yielded extraordinary results.

Why Does Sour Diesel Smell the Way It Does?

Terpenes and cannabinoids have the impact on the way a strain may smell.  In the case of Sour Diesel, limonene terpenes give it a citrus flavor, while myrcene gives it a spicy, fruity and sour combination of flavor.  The other flavors mixed in, combined with these magical ingredients, give Sour Diesel the now-renowned aroma.

It isn’t recommended.  Don’t smoke weed while you drive.  A car is a very large, very dangerous machine and you have to be alert with your sensory responses in top shape.  Be smart, use common sense.  When you park and go to a fun event, take a hit of your joint.  Do it hanging out with friends.  But avoid using a power-saw, heavy machinery.  Don’t be dumb.  Mind-altering substances aren’t to be mixed with dangerous tasks.
