Question of the Day – Monday March 19, 2018

Question- What is “sour diesel”?

Answer- Sour diesel is a “designer variety” of marijuana that reportedly has a much more profound effect than do other marijuana strains. The cited reference notes “This is similar to the wine industry’s practice of combining different types of grapes to create blends like 40% Merlot/60% Shiraz. Designer varieties have designer labels like Haze, Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, White Widow, Northern Lights, Trainwreck, and many others that users in the know recognize through either personal experience or from reading the publications mentioned earlier. A spectrum of designer strains is consistently available in New York City, and many more, some unheard of to local designer consumers, are available in California, Canada, the Netherlands, and other national and international locations.” (Sifaneck SJ et al.
