Sour Diesel (Tetra Hydro Center)Review

Appearance

This was a bit of a strange-looking Sour Diesel, with almost stalk-like stems supporting columnar clusters of fat calyxes that stacked on top of one another in the characteristic “foxtail” shape.  It wasn’t dense in the traditional sense of overall bud structure, but the little bud columns were rather solid, as they were nothing but calyxes – it was definitely a unique-looking grow, but it appeared to be of high quality regardless.  The trichome coverage was above average and the mix of greens with the brownish pistils gave this strain a fairly dark appearance overall despite its fuzzy layer of trichs.

Flavor

Though the review team reported a distinct harshness and some coughing with this strain, it was definitely well-liked in this area – some of the coughing was likely due to the level of expansion this strain possessed, as it was certainly above average there.  Again, the dominant olfactory sensation with this strain was a sour citrusy bite followed by a bouquet of menthol, soil, and peppery spice in a lingering aftertaste that was complex and enjoyable.  This one definitely has an emphasis on the “sour” part of its namesake rather than the “diesel”.

Euphoria

(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Mild to moderate body pain management, possible glaucoma/ocular relief, anti-anxiety, mood elevation, creativity, appetite stimulation.

Overall

This strain was very well-liked in all aspects of the review aside from minor gripes about the somewhat wispy bud structure.  The taste and smell both screamed “sour” and yet the fuel/soil component of the diesel was still present.  Its complex taste especially pleased the reviewers, and was indeed a foreshadowing of a powerful ride to come.  The effects and duration were where it really stood out though, as it carried on to 3 hours, even on a fairly small dosage (3-4 hits).  This one would be a good late daytime/after work sort of smoke, because it might put you out a bit but would otherwise provide a great sense of relaxation and well-being for several hours into the night.
