The Cannabis plant is a very adaptable one with many uses. The Marijuana “strain” is the species of plant that does not contain any CBD or THC, yet has been selectively grown to maximize THC content in order to make it “high”. It’s important to know this because you do NOT want to smoke high-THC strains, too much-unbalanced THC can cause psychosis and/or create MANY negative experiences.
The marijuana strain ” Sour Diesel “, more commonly known as simply “Sour D”, is an extremely popular Sativa type weed that contains virtually no CBDs but has incredibly potent levels of THC typically between 15%-20%+ on average, so use caution. Be warned, if you are inexperienced with consuming cannabis in any form, it’s virtually guaranteed unless you’ve consumed extremely potent CBD-heavy strains that you WILL get HIGH.
A few select dispensaries/clinics will carry high CBD Sativa strains, but I would still recommend finding someone experienced to guide you through your first time if possible or using resources like Nugbuckets (not the best place) &Grasscity forums (much better).
That’s not to say ALL Sativa strains are “bad”, some of them can be surprisingly potent in the non-psychoactive CBD cannabinoid! sour diesel cbd hemp flower has about 1-2% naturally occurring THC and 4-6% naturally occurring CBD. This is interesting because while it does take more Sour D bud to get high than other weed due to its extremely high THC content, the experience lasts much longer & is more intense than traditional weed. Sour D, if you are lucky enough to find it, can be smoked during the day (unless you work in an extremely prohibitionist environment) without causing that “drugged out” feeling or memory loss like other powerful strains.
My preferred method of consuming sour diesel CBD-rich marijuana is via a homemade hash oil/CBD bud oil vaporizer pen. The effects are instantaneous and last for around 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on dosage/vaporizer quality (I would NOT recommend a cheap vaporizer). I’ve been using one for about a year now and I love it! Note: The effect of dabbing Sour D THC-containing buds is MUCH more intense than vaping/smoking CBD-rich buds.
