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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Mother’s Milk strain, brought into existence by Sensi Seeds, is a 70% sativa-dominant strain with heavy Haze genetics. This Jack Herer cousin typically forms spear-shaped buds that carry more weight and density than your archetypal sativa. Its aroma is sweet and tangy with earthy undertones that provide a smooth, complex flavor profile.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
