Sour Diesel Strain is a high-yielding plant that relieves stress and anxiety.
- Prone to powdery mildew
Sour Diesel plants take roughly ten weeks of flowering – but after that period you can yield up to 16 oz in a 3×3 feet area. It performs well outdoors, but is best grown indoors because it is occasionally prone to powdery mildew. Offering massive yields, this hybrid strain has a smell somewhat like diesel and flavors of lemon, herbs, and earthy notes. It’s great for fighting depression and fatigue.
What are hybrid types of cannabis?
“Hybrid” cannabis strains are strains like Blue Dream, Jilly Bean, Dutch Treat, and Banana Kush. They are mix (a hybrid) of the other two main classes of cannabis — “indica” and “sativa”. Hybrids often provide a more balanced combination of indica and sativa’s effects. The names “hybrid”, “indica”, and “sativa” are part of the folk taxonomy of cannabis, and they predate modern chemical quantification of the plant. The terms are often not the whole picture, but continue to be useful both to breeders, growers and consumers of marijuana.
Why should I care about hybrids vs indicas vs sativas?
Unlike drinking alcohol, where there is one psychological endpoint — being drunk — different types of cannabis can result in vastly different effects. Knowing what type of cannabis you are consuming can help you achieve the type of effect you might want to feel.
For example, indicas are generally more sedative, so if you want to shut down stress and pass out on the couch — indicas it is. (One good way to remember the difference is: ‘indicas equal in da couch.’)
By contrast, sativas are categorized as daytime strains, because they are prone to providing an uplifting and energetic head high.
