Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is a very well known Sativa-dominant flower that became popular in the ’90s. It is a cross between Super Skunk and the infamous Chemdawg. It’s recognized by its pungent diesel aroma that produces cerebral effects quickly and gives users a burst of energy. 

Although it is a sativa strain, it is popular amongst users who are prone to increased paranoia with other cannabis strains. It brings on a nice uplifting euphoria that is ideal for daytime use. 


Sour Diesel is classified as a Sativa dominant hybrid thought to be a cross between Chemdawg and Super Skunk.


Sour Diesel’s THC potency typically ranges between 17% and 25%.
