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.
THC: 17.82% LINEAGE: OG KUSH X WEST COAST SKUNK. AROMA: Banana bread with earthy undertones. EFFECT: Potent Indica affects that inducing sleep, relaxation, and sedation. Best for end of day. MEDICAL: Can aid insomnia, stress, restlessness, and pain.
This legendary West Coast strain crosses Ghost OG and Skunk Haze to create an indica-dominant hybrid that tastes and smells like a bushel of fresh bananas. Banana Kush tends to provide a mellow buzz alongside a relaxed sense of euphoria. A great choice when dealing with stress or depression, Banana Kush also helps stimulate your creative juices and can help you remain talkative in social settings.
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.
Sour Diesel has since become one of the most popular strains on the marijuana market, spurring a ton of imitations and hybrids trying to jump on the hype train. The true Sour D is a lime green color with fluffy pink stigmas and an incredible, almost unearthly-strong kerosene/lemon/skunk aroma which stinks through almost any container or grow room. While the flavor and aroma are legendary, the effects are also among the most potent you will experience when well-grown.
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.
Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with a taste of pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting sativa provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.
A sister plant to our Deadman OG, this hybrid uses a different example of the Mandarin on the same Deadhead OG mother plant. The results are more citrusy and less OG than the Deadman, bringing more of the Mandarin to the party. The uplifting Mandarin takes control of the majority of effects, as this is not a sedative strain at all — this one is social, active, and great for daytime use.
Combining the heavy Indica strain, The White with the strong Sativa strain Cinderella 99 yields the amazing hybrid known as White 99. This strain yields bright green buds with yellowish-orange hairs that look as though they were sprinkled with sugar. White 99 has a fresh, almost tropical aroma that is followed by a sweet citrus flavor that many describe as a Kush aftertaste. Strain connoisseurs that like both Indicas and Sativas will have a hard time passing up White 99.
“This well-balanced hybrid originates at TGA Seeds and its main breeders Subcool and Mz. Jill, though this one is actually Mz. Jill’s work. As the story goes, one day Mz. Jill was gifted an Orange Skunk cut (of unknown origin, likely Aeric77’s Cali-O) with an uncanny orange flavor. Always searching for new and more delectable tastes they immediately thought of crossing the new cut with their potent Space Queen, whose cherry/mango flavors were already a big hit. Thus was born Jilly Bean. These colorful, hybrid flowers exhibit a perfect union of Indica/Sativa bud structure.
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.
The Scoop: Jack Herer is a lofty and inspired hybrid that was first cultivated by one of the resourceful breeders. Perpetuating the notoriety of its deceased hemp-activist namesake, Jack is thought to be a cross between Shiva Skunk, Northern Lights #5, and an enigmatic Haze hybrid. Debatably considered one of the most victorious varieties competing in modern cannabis festivals, Jack Herer has taken home multiple HTCC trophies over its celebrated 23-year lifespan.
Along with Blueberry, the Flo lines are known as legendary breeder DJ Short’s best work. Though they share the same genetic pool (Afghani and two different Thai lines), they are quite different strains, with the Flo taking on the exotic aroma of the Purple Thai and the Blueberry taking on more of the Afghani sweetness.
The Flo line is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with an Indica base, meaning that it has uplifting mental effects and more sedative physical effects. A perfect choice for daytime relaxation without bleariness, Flo is maybe the most popular strain in the Colorado cannabis scene over the past 5 years.
