Sour Diesel Genetics
Sour Diesel CBD flower is a descendent of hemp royalty. As the child of famous hemp strains Chemdawg91 and Super Skunk, Sour Diesel is not to be messed with. With a lineage like this, it’s no wonder that Sour Diesel is so widely revered for its potent abilities.
Chemdawg91 is one of the most sought-after hybrid hemp strains on the market. Some believe its name refers to the year of its inception (1991), but this elusive strain has a past shrouded in mystery. Its flavor is piney and citrusy, and, as you may have guessed, it has a slightly diesel-like aroma.
The name “Super Skunk” speaks for itself when were talking about aroma. But, this strain’s impressive benefits deserve an honorable mention. Super Skunk provides ultra-relaxing effects that can soothe even the worst body-aches and muscle soreness. It also induces feelings of serenity for many people.
When Chemdawg91 and Super Skunk were crossed, the incredible Sour Diesel was born. Laced with all of the skunky, gasoline-like aromas and potent benefits of its parents, this strain quickly became a must-try. It burns and smells like most classic cannabis flowers and calms everyone who tries it.
Sour Diesel CBD Strain Terpene Profile
Sour Diesel boasts an impressive lineup of terpenes. It’s loaded with myrcene, pinene, linalool, caryophyllene, and limonene – a staggering array of therapeutic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant terpenes. This collection also brings the unique skunky aroma to the strain.
Unsurprisingly, limonene is found in lemon and orange rinds as well as cannabis plants. It has a bright, citrusy aroma and works to promote stress relief. This terpene is partially responsible for the tartness of Sour Diesel.
Caryophyllene’s earthy spice fragrance is nearly unmatched in the terpene world. You can find this terp in cloves, black pepper, and cinnamon, which explains the warmth it adds to the Sour Diesel strain. As the only known terpene to engage the endocannabinoid system (ECS) like a cannabinoid, it has potent anti-inflammatory effects.
Linalool is a light, floral terpene with a distinct lavender scent, though it’s not very detectable in Sour Diesel. Although it didn’t lend its aroma, linalool definitely contributes its relaxing properties and calming effects to the strain.
Pinene is sort of hard to describe… just kidding! It smells like fresh, sappy pine needles — an aroma that plays a role in the earthy, skunkiness of Sour Diesel. Pinene is also found in basil and rosemary, so it’s definitely more than just a pine-themed terpene. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits!
Myrcene, the most abundant terpene found in modern cannabis, is beloved for its soothing effects. It’s found in numerous other plants, including hops! In addition to craft beer, you can also find myrcene in lemongrass, mango, and thyme!
Sour Diesel CBD Strain Aroma & Flavor
When you inhale Sour Diesel, you’ll notice its flavor differs from its initial aroma. If you take a good, strong whiff of this pungent strain, you might just get knocked over by the strength of its scent. It’s as if rich, dank earth has been doused in a decent amount of gasoline.
But in the midst of the diesel-like fragrance, notes of citrus fight for a chance to be part of the aroma profile. If you enjoy the smell of classic cannabis, you’re sure to love Sour Diesel. You can almost smell how sticky it is, and when you pick it up, the trichomes prove that to be true.
Once you light and inhale Sour Diesel, the skunkiness truly starts to come out. It draws more smoothly than it smells and coats your taste buds in citrusy, sweet flavors. After you smoke this aromatic dream of a strain, the taste will stick on your tongue as an afterthought.
Sour Diesel CBD Flower Cannabinoid Profile
Sour Diesel’s name speaks to its amazing cannabinoid profile. At 20.165% CBD, this strain has one of the highest CBD contents on the market. You’ll feel the effects almost immediately after taking a couple of puffs – and the divine taste will leave you wanting more.
In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, our Sour Diesel CBD hemp flower only contains 0.094% delta-9 THC. That’s not enough to make you feel any sort of “high,” but it is enough to encourage a potent entourage effect. This tiny amount of THC makes Sour Diesel effective in an all-encompassing way.
Sour Diesel CBD Flower Effects
Sour Diesel does not mess around when it comes to providing relaxing effects. As a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain, this strain wears many hats. Many people associate a high CBD content with falling into a deep sleep, but Sour Diesel has some tricks up its sleeve. This strain uplifts you in an interesting way.
The 20.165% CBD content quickly and effectively wipes out negative feelings and bodily discomforts. As your worries and aches fade into the background, your mind begins to feel clear and focused, and your body starts feeling capable and free.
Many people say that Sour Diesel is a motivational strain – it gives you a little kick start to take on the day. While some CBD strains are absolutely made for sleeping, Sour Diesel is designed to work in the AM without sending you into a doze. It’s both energizing and soothing at the same time.
Sour Diesel’s dense, sticky buds are basically begging to be ground up and turned into the perfect pre-rolls. If you don’t know how to roll on your own, don’t worry – there are plenty of easy ways to do it. The easiest way to make your own pre-roll is to buy paper cones with filters already in place.
Once you grind up some of your Sour Diesel, sprinkle it into the open cone and use the eraser end of a pencil to pack it in. Not too tight, but not too loose! When the ground-up flower is about a centimeter from the open end, twist it closed, and voila! You’ve made your own pre-roll with an awesome strain.
If pre-rolls aren’t your thing, you can also smoke Sour Diesel out of a pipe, water bubbler, or bong! A pipe is a great tool for smoking just a small amount at one time. Water bubblers and bongs help to reduce the harshness of smoke by filtering it through a water chamber.
If you want something totally unique, you can make homemade CBD edibles using Sour Diesel CBD hemp flower! There are hundreds of recipes out there – from vegan CBD brownies to chocolate chip CBD cookies. You’ll be sure to find something you’ll love!
Why Choose Hollyweed CBD?
At Hollyweed, quality CBD hemp flower is the heart of what we do. To ensure we’re providing the best possible strains, we source from organic hemp farms in Oregon and California. It’s essential for us to work with hemp growers and cultivators who care about federal regulations and purity standards as much as we do.

Once we get the flower back from the lab, we post the test results on our website in the form of a certificate of analysis (COA). We believe in full brand-transparency, and part of that is sharing with you exactly what’s in our CBD hemp flower. If you ever want to check for yourself, a COA is available for every product.
