Overview of Super Sour Diesel
Be prepared for a rush of energy and creativity when you go in for this strain! This sativa strain typically features THC levels between 18 and 24% and negligible amounts of CBD and CBN. When you open up a package of Super Sour Diesel, you're greeted with a heady swirl of fuel-like, earthy and pungent aromas.
The trademark Diesel smell is underpinned by whiffs of sweetness and tang that keep the fuel and pungency from dominating the scent profile. High-quality batches of the Super Sour Diesel cannabis strain have this balanced quality, while lower quality can often be identified by an overpowering fuel smell.
Super Sour Diesel buds are easy on the eyes. Look for a light, bright green color to the flowers, and notice the generous trichome coverage on your weed flower. This strain is marked by small flower clusters, which are a true pleasure to break up due to their characteristic stickiness.
Smoking this strain releases flavors that may surprise you. While the fuel taste is present on inhale, the exhale is surprisingly sweet and ends up leaving a pleasant tang in the mouth. The underlying flavor is pungent and earthy, tying into the strain's aroma and reminding you of its intense potency.
This potent strain is a delectable combination of two outstanding sativa strains: Sour Diesel and Super Silver Haze. With this heritage, it's not surprising that the effects of Super Sour Diesel are almost entirely cerebral in nature.
Positive Effects of Super Sour Diesel
Super Sour Diesel is quite impressive in terms of effects. Recreationally, this strain is ideal for daytime use due to its energizing effects. Users can expect a quick-acting euphoria that also boosts creativity and may even help you focus on more complex tasks.
Negative Effects of Super Sour Diesel
At high doses, Super Sour Diesel may cause racing thoughts. It's one of the more consistently strong strains, boasting average THC percentages of 18-24%. If you poke around enough pot shops, it won't be difficult to find batches containing up to 25% THC and above!
For this reason, we recommend this strain for more experienced smokers. This is a truly an 'awake' high, but it may be too much to handle for the inexperienced smoker.
Lineage of Super Sour Diesel
Super Sour Diesel gets all of its cerebral effects from its lineage. Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant strain hybrid descendant of Chemdawg 91 and the indica-strong Super Skunk. The Super Skunk is responsible for the strong smell of this strain. Super Silver Haze is a hybrid of Northern Lights, Skunk, and Haze. These strains came from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand, Afghanistan, and India.
