Aroma and Taste: Sour Diesel’s aroma and taste are notorious. Like every rose has its thorn, and Sour Diesel has its scent and taste.
Both elements in Sour Diesel’s name are well warranted, especially the latter. In fact, this is considered one of, if not the skunkiest, most gasoline-smelling strains. Its chemical aroma overpowers most other notes, with some fairly subtle citrus undertones making it through and accounting for the “sour,” along with faint hints of pine. The earthy taste is equally harsh, as is the acrid smoke which causes coughing and leaves a lasting aftertaste.
Trivia: A.K.A. Sour D.
Sour Diesel can mean a lot of different things, depending on the consumer and settings, and pretty much all of them can be summed up with one word: joy.
A quintessential “wake and bake” strain, Sour Diesel is a pair of rose-tinted glasses you can put on virtually from the moment you open your eyes, filling the day with promise and opportunities; a cup of coffee, shared with a best friend over a deep conversation; the life of the party; the creative juices in a brainstorming session; the sexiest bass line you can’t get enough of; the mental strength, focus, and motivation to start and finish mundane tasks like cleaning your house; the inner conversation you sometimes need to have with yourself to get over a mental bump or leave regrets in the rear-view mirror; most of all, Sour Diesel will leave you smiling, with your lips or with your eyes, whatever you’re doing.
What Sour Diesel is NOT is a couch potato (not that we’re judging the occasional couch wallowing when the occasion is right, like a good indica on a day off). There will be some mild body relaxation, but the kind that makes your body feel airy and light rather than heavy and almost sunken into the couch or bed.
Sour Diesel is celebrated by people with mental disorders like depression anxiety, etc., especially those who need a day-time medication that won’t turn their day into an opaque fog, but on the contrary, one that will turn a gloomy day bright, clear, and blue. However, because of the strain’s potency, moderation is key, as otherwise the cerebral high can backfire and cause anxiety to come back with a vengeance.
Despite the physical effects being very light in terms of relaxation, they’re anything but when it comes to pain, with many users trumpeting Sour Diesel’s benefits for physical ailments.
The all-around energy that Sour Diesel charges users with can also go a long way toward boosting motivation and helping people snap out of their lethargy.
