Bud Buzz: Sour Diesel strain is one of the most popular cannabis strains around and for good reason. If you are a Sativa fan and looking for a solid daytime strain that is super potent, Sour Diesel is for you. However, if you are a cannabis newbie and concerned about negative side effects such as paranoia or increased anxiety, Sour Diesel might be a strain to hold off on. At least until you have more experience with Sativas in general. The buds themselves are medium sized, not overly dense but not sparse at all. The buds can be light to medium green with red hairs throughout and a very light trichome coating. The smell is almost pure diesel with a little earthiness and a hint of citrus. The taste is similar to the smell but much more of an earthy flavor than the smell.
This cannabis strain hits fast and hard! You can expect your buzz to last around 3 hours, sometimes a little more. The head buzz is very unique and the most dominate feelings are happiness and euphoria. Sour Diesel is also known for its ability to provide plenty of creative energy. Plus you can expect some tingling sensations, especially during the first hour as well as sexual arousal. How Sour Diesel reacts to your own unique brain chemistry varies. Some people find it easy to stay focused and others find thoughts slip from their mind quickly. It can be next to impossible to stay focused. This is a social cannabis strain and laughing comes as easily as breathing. All these amazing effects make Sour Diesel perfect for a wake n’ bake session or an afternoon or early evening talk with friends.
One of the best strains for depression, stress and mild to moderate pain. Sour Diesel does help some people manage their anxiety, but not everyone. If you are looking for a strain to manage anxiety, you may want to try a hybrid first before moving to a Sativa. Besides the potential negatives mentioned above, dry mouth and red dry eyes are common with this cannabis strain.
Drinkables – Plenty of hydration is part of the Sour Diesel buzz, so keep water around throughout your smoke session and beyond. Any type of carbonated drink is also great with this cannabis strain. If you like alcohol, don’t overdo, two drinks should be plenty for most people. If you really want to boost your energy level beyond what it already is, go with some cold brew or hot black tea.
Munchables – Sour Diesel strain does not really bring on the munchies for most people. It is actually used by many cannabis connoisseurs to help control their appetite. That being said, you may want to have some healthy snacks around to fuel your creative pursuits while you enjoy your buzz. Any type of fruit and nuts are always good choices. Eating fruit, especially citrus fruit like oranges is said to elevate your buzz and certainly worth giving a try.
Doables – This cannabis strain sparks some serious creativity and can be used as part of a brainstorming session, especially if you are looking for truly out of the norm ideas. Sour Diesel also increases sexual arousal for many. Use that plus your creativity and see where it leads you! Also a super social cannabis strain and excellent for those who struggle with social anxiety. If you have a Zoom session coming up that you are apprehensive about, this strain is an excellent way to decrease the stress associated with talking to random, or known people online.
