CANNABIS CULTURE – Jason King features the super heady and high-yielding Sour Diesel as his Favorite Bud in Issue #71 of Cannabis Culture Magazine
Recent years have seen a lot of hype about Sour Diesel, but the pure strain is so fantastic that I decided to feature it this issue. Sour Diesel appears on a very short list of strains that are not only super heady, but also heavy yielding.
(Most of the super-heady strains out there are low-yielders, partly justifying their outrageous prices.) In fact, Sour Diesel grown outdoors with ample sun, water, and fertilizers can top five pounds per plant. Grown indoors she is no slouch either, yielding up to half a pound per plant if grown large.

Properly grown Sour Diesel has such a strong aroma and flavor that it absolutely requires jar containing if you don’t want to reek up your whole neighborhood! The aroma is a heavy, skunky, “road-kill” sour scent with a sublime lemony musk overtone, and the intense flavor transitions to a perfect aftertaste that’s Skunk to the max. It leaves you with wicked cottonmouth!
As for the high, well, let me assure you: Sour Diesel is strong shit, hits you in the head quite hard, and can make your eyes very red! Sour Diesel was created (accidentally) when a Massachusetts Super Skunk pollinated a pure Diesel mother plant. The results, as they say, are history. Everyone seems to be growing Sour Diesel these days and the market can’t get enough of it; but watch out for cheap impostors and re-crosses! Flowering time is approximately eight weeks indoors, while outdoor plants will finish in early October!
