Sour Diesel CBD has had some media attention in the early part of 2018, which spiked demand for this particular strand and you can visit this page for more info.
The smell and taste are very distinctive. If you have inhaled any type of cannabis product in your life, then you will be familiar with the distinct odor – scents of pine, skunk, and even citrus fruits can be found within certain strains or products. A sour/citrus aroma is what Sour diesel is most readily associated with.
This particular strain of Cannabis Sativa contains somewhere between 15-20% CBD content, along with 0.5% THC which is why it’s currently classed as a legal hemp product in many countries around the world i.e. it has the ability to be grown with fewer restrictions than standard Cannabis strains which contain higher THC percentages.
Sour Diesel is a popular choice amongst growers, probably due to it having quite an easy cultivation cycle. However, the resulting bud will depend on how this strain is grown (indoors or outside) and also on how it’s harvested (before or after maturity). An immature plant will offer more CBD content and a fuller taste/smell experience – although you won’t get as much yield as if you waited until the buds were almost ripe before harvesting (giving them an almost amber hue); meaning there is definitely something for everyone and every budget when it comes to growing Sour D. The buds look like standard Cannabis sativa; compact with lots of orange/brown hairs and with a fairly high calyx to leaf ratio.
Sour diesel CBD is becoming increasingly popular for medical users too, with the uplifting cerebral effects when taken in lower doses. The CBD content is obviously essential here, as it may help with a huge number of different conditions without the psychoactive effect associated with THC – which can actually exacerbate some issues. Sour Diesel also has painkilling properties and is often chosen by patients who suffer from chronic pain or even muscle spasms etc.
The presence of limonene in this strand means that it may be extremely beneficial for anyone struggling to sleep too, using it just before bedtime could result in a higher quality of rest being achieved overall.
