EAST COAST SOUR DIESEL STRAIN
East Coast Sour Diesel is a fast-acting attitude lifter that patients love for its truly sativa effects. This strain has a sour lemon smell and taste that’s crisp and uplifting. East Coast Sour Diesel is powerful so new patients should be cautious. Those looking to alleviate anxiety or get some sleep may want to skip this high energy medicine.
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 displays an extremely pungent blend of fuel, skunk, citrus, and spice that will leak through many jars and bags when the strain is well-grown. The sharpness gets stronger after breaking it up, adding a stronger kick of citrus as well as a cutting fuel aroma that tickles the nose.
A frontal attack of skunky citrus funk gives way to a mentholated lime-kissed spice which lingers in the mouth. The smoke is expansive and will definitely cause coughing on larger hits.
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.
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.
Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybrid with potent sativa effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma.
Chem 4 OG, or Chemdawg 4 OG, is an indica dominant strain bred using Cali Connection’s SVF OG Kush and ChemDawg 4. The dense, green buds are covered in a thick layer of trichomes with THC levels that reach as high as 20%. The indica dominance will provide a full body high great for relaxing and increasing appetite. The mysterious ChemDawg genetics provides uplifting, energetic effects that are great for stress, depression, and fatigue.
The Blue Dream strain is one of cannabis’ most popular Sativa-dominant hybrids, first coming onto the scene in Northern California, then exploding nationwide as the proliferation of medical cannabis increased. The strain is a perfect example of a Sativa-Indica fusion — combining a selected Santa Cruz Haze mother with a DJ Short’s Blueberry F4 male made this a Sativa-dominant plant, but with the most desirable traits of the Blueberry father intact, including its sweet aroma and large, dense nug structure.
The Bruce Banner Strain (probably better-known as the alter ego of comic book superhero The Incredible Hulk) is one of three phenotypes of the Bruce Banner weed strain and has proven to be a popular one. Effects come on quickly to provide an immediate burst of euphoria before easing into relaxation that may be good for creative pursuits. Delta9 Labs bred this strain from OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, and its heritage can be found in its diesel aroma with sweet undertones. Its plants flower at 8 to 10 weeks.
Created in Topeka, Kansas by a grower known as “MrDank”, Golden Goat was brought to Colorado right as the medical cannabis scene began to develop, and made its way into a number of the first dispensaries in the state. Since then, it has become one of Colorado’s signature strains, known for its tantalizing lemon-grenadine aroma and flavor as well as its complex Sativa-dominant effects package. It was originally named after the Golden Goat Recycling plant in Topeka, more speficically the smell of a thousand different types of soda syrup fermenting in the hot sun — that sweet and funky quality comes through in a well-grown Goat. A fabulous medical variety, it has shown benefits with MS, RSD, depression, fatigue, and migraines.
Romulan strain, named after the alien Star Trek race, is a powerful indica revered for its potent therapeutic qualities. Though mostly indica, Romulan growers insist sativa genetics have crept in over time, lending it intense cerebral effects. These squat, pine-scented plants produce dense frosty buds that have found their following among connoisseurs in B.C. and the Pacific Northwest. A deep, sedating relaxation makes Romulan a favorite strain for patients treating muscle spasms and nerve damage. Many hybridized variations of Romulan exist, but nearly all can promise a full body calm with heavily intoxicating properties.
Lemon Kush is an effective hybrid strain with a 50:50 sativa/indica ratio with 26% THC content. It is actually a blend of Afghani Kush and Lemon G with a potent lemon flavor of its own. Its taste can be credited to the high amounts of Limonene found within the strain. But if you do plan to get your hands on Lemon Kush strain, it would be wise to buy some that is organically grown.
Harlequin weed is a 75/25 sativa-dominant strain renowned for its reliable expression of CBD. A descendant of Colombian Gold, a Nepali indica, and Thai, and Swiss landrace strains, you can depend on Harlequin to provide clear-headed, alert sativa effects. Unlike most high-CBD strains, Harlequin almost always develops a CBD:THC ratio of 5:2, making this strain one of the most effective out there for treatment of pain and anxiety, as CBD counteracts THC’s paranoia while amplifying its painkilling properties. Flavors can range from earthy musk to sweet mango, but without a doubt, what draws crowds to Harlequin is its ability to relax without sedation, and to relieve without intoxication.
A relative to Hawaiian sativa strains, Maui lives up to its tropical reputation. The musky overtones for this easy sativa are complemented by its fruity aftertaste and floral aroma. Less uplifting than other sativas, Maui tends to be head heavy and delivers a slow cerebral sensation that becomes more prominent over time. Maui effects tend to be medium-long in duration, lasting over 2 hours for many users.
The CandyLand strain, a gold medalist of the 2012 KushCon, is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred from Granddaddy Purple and Bay Platinum Cookies. Golden hairs weave through Candyland’s thick coat of sugar-like trichomes and highlight the compact, camouflage-colored buds. This strain grows well indoors and out, and patients turn to Candyland to relieve pain, muscle tension, and sour moods. Strong sativa genetics give Candyland uplifting and stimulating effects, making it a perfect strain for social gatherings or creative pastimes.
Light of Jah is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain whose name is often used interchangeably with Jack Herer, but may also refer to a Jack Herer and Afghani hybrid. This hybridized rendition still leans toward the sativa side with uplifting effects that fuel creativity and positive moods. Its flavor is a sweet combination of tropical fruit and hashy, pepperyspice.
