Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
With a THC content of up to 18%, Sour Flower can add pep and vitality to any busy day without the full slap to the face that a more powerful strain would deliver. This strain is a direct descendant of Super Silver Haze, an even more potent sativa-dominant hybrid that was subjected to selective inbreeding. The specific balance of sativa to indica is unclear, though, as Sour Flower flies mostly beneath the radar. That means it’s anything but easy to find, though it’s somewhat popular in California, Arizona, and Oregon. It produces a strong, uplifting head high with clarity and focus, along with an energy boost and a good dose of euphoria. This strain is especially good for treating anxiety, though it’s also helpful with depression and headaches. Dry mouth is common, as are red eyes, but no other side effects are likely. Sour Flower has a strong earthy flavor and smell, with undertones of diesel and pine. This strain hits with a strong, relaxed cerebral high with a case of the giggles, and it’s great at inspiring creativity. Perfect for social occasions, it delivers a kick in the brain that will banish stress while enlivening an otherwise ordinary day.
While indoor cultivation of Super Sour Flower is recommended for optimum results, outdoor or greenhouse growing environments are also possible. With an indoor flowering period between 9 and 11 weeks, growers will be enthused to discover that the end result of this medication is one of complete potency and beneficial medicinal properties.
Despite the fact that this amazing strain is 85% Sativa, it feels more like 50/50. The medicated effect of this bud is a long-lasting, mellow high the provides both cerebral and body stimulation. The high begins with a slight body high that is overshadowed by a mellow, but uplifting head high. After about 10 minutes this slowly mellows out to a more intense body high along with notable cerebral effects. After about an hour drowsiness often sets in, making it one of the few Sativa-dominant strains that is suitable for treating insomnia, as well as an assortment of other ailments. Enjoy this potent strain whenever you see it available.
Unconfirmed, thought to be Original Diesel (ChemDawg ’91 x [Massachusetts Super Skunk x Sensi Seeds Northern Lights] x DNL (Northern Lights/Shiva x Hawaiian)
When Original Diesel was accidentally crossed with a DNL plant that hermied, it created seed stock that produced the East Coast Sour Diesel (ECSD) clone. Many seed companies have released crosses with the strain, and some (like Reservoir Seeds) have attempted to reproduce the strain in seed form, releasing a variety of backcrosses and IBLs with varying results.
Sour Diesel is fairly sativa-dominant but seems to exhibit a headslam of an indica effect at times, especially if let go late into flowering. It hits the eyes and head immediately, filling them with pressure and energy, while the body seems almost immobile at times, trending heavily towards couchlock — a numbing quality is also often reported, aiding with nerve and muscle pain relief.
Sour Diesel isn’t known for being a long-laster at medicinal levels — it’s a high peak and then a valley normally, often finishing with the user feeling lethargic and a bit drained after the sativa start. Sour Diesel often helps with nerve issues, appetite, and can also help as a sleep aid during the “crash” portion of the effects.
The smell: Sour Flower has a smell all its own, but in a word, it’s the olfactory equivalent of the color pink, and quite reminiscent of pink Laffy Taffy. This full-bodied connoisseur strain also features a tropical mélange of pineapple, coconut, and banana, with a peachy base. No one scent dominates the other; it is a true equal-parts blend. Rounding out its fruity fragrance, a soft, floral aroma with a hint of chrysanthemum highlights this hazy strain.
The dry hit: In its pre-burn state, Sour Flower is incredibly fruity, with a deep, complex flavor that smacks of classic haze.
The flavor: Sour Flower tastes sweet and fruity with a tart, hazy, finish. The tropical nose of this strain translates remarkably to taste – it essentially tastes just like it smells.
The high: Electric and cerebral, the Sour Flower high excites the mind, relaxes the body, and invigorates the spirit. It can also make you lose it with laughter like Tom Cruise on the Oprah Show (but not in a mentally unstable way). Perfect for parties and social settings, it engenders curiosity and sincere interest that leaves you fixated on whatever or whoever is right in front of you. Sour Flower is exceptional at sparking creativity, and it offers the kind of high-level motivation that encourages you to actually jot down your ideas, as opposed to stashing them in the “What was I just talking about?” file.
Need a distraction? Boss on your back? Boyfriend PMS-ing? World falling apart? Sour Flower, all the way. It’ll cause you to lose awareness of your pain and forget all your worries. On the medicinal tip, Sour Flower is great for releasing stress and tension, and it’s also noteworthy as a pain reliever.
The word: Sour Flower is a rare find. It was bred for the remarkable high that a double-dose of Super Silver Haze was sure to produce – in other words, head stash, not commercial production. One of the most epic choices for a daytime toke I have found, this strain boasts a THC content of 18%, and confronts even demanding days with a lightness of heart and an energetic vibrancy. You’ll remain lucid enough to handle big projects and multi-tasking, plus be inspired to do something productive with the creative energy it produces. Sour Flower brings flower power to any well-rounded head stash.
Type of High
Sour Flower marijuana strain induces cerebral euphoria, improves focus and mood, boosts energy, prompts laughter and chattiness. Relieves stress, nausea and headaches. Followed by relaxation, laziness, and mild sedation. May cause dizziness.
Sour Flower cannabis strain is a back cross of Super Silver Haze.
Sour Diesel doesn’t yield quite as well as Original Diesel, growing a bit more spindly and with lighter buds, but the yield is still above-average. Training and netting works very well for this strain, and it will take moderate to high amounts of feeding during flower, bulking up until the very end. It stretches at least twice its initial height when flowered, more than that without training.
