Definition - What does Sour Diesel mean?
The Sour Diesel strain, or Sour D as some refer to it, is a sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain associated with invigoration, energy and being active, particularly outdoors. It is prized for its very strong aroma, which some equate with the smell of diesel fuel. It is also very fast acting, and can be used to treat a wide range of medical and mental health conditions.
Hydrolife explains Sour Diesel
The Sour Diesel strain dates back to the 1990s, when it is thought this hybrid strain was bred from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk. It is used primarily by those seeking relief from a number of conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain.
Sour Diesel is best known for the strong smell of the fuel it is named for. The Sour Diesel Strain delivers a feeling of energy and invigoration combined with a dream-like cerebral stimulation. The strain is fast acting and long lasting which makes it a very popular choice with those treating medical conditions. Users report no feelings of “couch lock” or feeling heavy when using this strain. Instead, it heightens creativity and delivers an effervescent high.
Note that Sour Diesel, while useful for combating chronic pain, may not be the best solution for chronic insomnia due to the energetic high it delivers.
