The Sour Diesel Strain (sometimes known as Sour D) derives its name from the gas=like smell it emits as it flowers. It is an extremely popular strain and is known for combining a Sativa head high with some subtle Indica relaxation qualities as well.
This makes sour diesel strain seeds incredibly popular amongst recreational and medicinal users alike.
The Sour Diesel strain has a real ass-kick of a THC content that has been measured up to 25%.
Again like so many of the strains introduced in the 1980s and 1990s, it became into the lexicon of famous strains without having any codified genotypes or lasting documentation and as a result, the exact origins are still unknown.
Although a definitive genealogy of the sour diesel strain is unknown, because of its popularity, much speculation exists about it.
Some believe it was derived from the original strain known simply as Diesel while others think it a mish mash of other strains including northern lights, Skunk #1 and others.
