The marijuana product known as Sour Diesel has been around for a very long time. It is only 10% Indica and the rest is Sativa. This is a hybrid, with the parents being 91 ChemDog and Super Skunk. This plant offers leaves that are very thin and long, but don’t underestimate them. They are very strong. The leaves are both light and dark green in color. There are various shades of brown hairs that will emerge between them. The hairs get darker and more appear in the final weeks of growth before harvest.
The THC level in Sour Diesel will depend on the product you purchase or the seeds you buy to grow your own cannabis plants. It can be as high as 26% but typically it is about 20%. This isn’t a strain for those new to using such products to try. It is just too powerful for their mind and body to be hit with. The energy level for it is very good so don’t use it late at night or you won’t sleep well.
The use of Sour Diesel can help someone with chronic fatigue to get more accomplished. It can also help the mind to focus and for a person to see more creativity. For someone with chronic pain or inflammation, this can be a product that allows them to get back a better quality of life.

Hardly anyone is a fan of the way Sour Diesel smells, but they are willing to continue to use it due to the value this marijuana strain offers to them. It tastes both sweet and skunky. You may pick up some diesel or citrus too. This isn’t a favorite when it comes to rankings for taste either, but it is tolerable. You only need a very small amount of it to get a fast and powerful buzz.
The use of Sour Diesel is often for those with one or more medical or mental health issues they need to combat. They can include:
Your Sour Diesel cannabis plants can be grown in the house or outside. The problem with planting them outdoors though is the strong odor from them. For inside, you do need a very good ventilation system in place to keep it from spreading that odor all over your home. These are very short plants, only about 3 feet tall when they are ready for harvest. They are ready to harvest about 8 weeks after germination indoors and about 10 weeks after germination outside.
Sour Diesel plants aren’t complex to grow, but you do need to keep an eye on your leaves. Make sure you remove any signs of decaying or damaged leaves. That rotting foliage is going to rob your plants of water and nutrients they need to thrive. As a result, your resin yield from each plant is going to be far less than it could have been.
