Sour Diesel seeds are popular for their effects as well as for the large, high-yielding plants the seeds grow into. Distinguished by the lime smell and by an aftertaste reminding of diesel fuel – hence the name – the smoke of Sour Diesel will make you sociable, being the preferred choice of not only those who are looking forward to a relaxed evening spent with friends, but also for those who need the variety’s great medicinal qualities such as its effects in ameliorating anxiety, depression, nausea and chronic pain.
This plant is not very easy to breed – there are many different methods used for indoors cultivation, the chosen technique having a direct influence on the quality, the appearance as well as on the produce, while outdoors breeding is recommended only in warm areas, with climate conditions similar to California or Spain.
The History Behind This Strain
The story of one of the most popular Sativa-dominant varieties (Sour Diesel is around 70% Sativa and only around 30% Indica) started in the 1990’s, in New York, and then the strain quickly migrated to the West Coast from where it began its rise to legend status. Though precise information about the origins of Sour Diesel seeds is scarce, according to one of the theories, Sour Diesel came to be as the result of the unintentional crossing between an Original Diesel and a Northern Lights-Shiva – an accident that resulted in what is known today as one of the most influential and most sought-after strains.
What Makes Sour Diesel Seeds and Plants So Popular
When kept well, under optimal conditions that allow the plant to achieve its true potential, the bush grows to over 5 feet in height and it develops large, resinous buds. The flowering period lasts for around 10 weeks, allowing breeders plenty of time to harvest the beautiful fruits of their efforts.
The taste, the smell and the effects of Sour Diesel are just as impressive as the looks of the plant. Robust in flavor and appearance, Sour Diesel will make you everything but sour. Just like the taste, the high is strong, generating instant feelings of happiness and the wish to talk and to socialize.
Sour Diesel seeds grow into plants that are potent in every way – the exceptional appearance of the bush is in harmony with the excellent yield, so taking the time to find the most adequate growing technique will bring impressive rewards.
