Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is a mostly Sativa hybrid that gets its name from the almost diesel and citrus odor it emits.
Due to the strain being almost entirely Sativa, Sour Diesel is a purely cerebral high. The high is very uplifting; giving feelings of euphoria. It is recommended as a day starter thanks to the energy it imparts. Stress, in general, is the most common medicinal use for Sour Diesel. The strain’s cerebral high is excellent at calming anxiety and lightening the effects of depression when used in small doses. Because of the energetic effects of this strain it is used to combat chronic fatigue as well. Since there is no body high associated with Sour Diesel, it provides virtually no pain relief.
This strain also reportedly increases creativity. However, as with many strains of cannabis most users experience dry mouth and possibly dry eyes.
Other users of the strain have reported feeling paranoia and anxiety as the cerebral stimulation of this strain can be quite overwhelming (especially in higher doses). Some users easily lose concentration as everything grabs at their attention. For novice users, even something as simple as staying mentally engaged in a conversation can pose a problem.
