Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients. This strain took root in the early ’90s, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdog 91 and Super Skunk.

From WikiLeaf, ” Because the underground cannabis market of the 1980s and 90s operated without any kind of lasting documentation, the exact origins of Sour Diesel are not known. Although a definitive agreement on its original genetic makeup doesn’t exist, Sour Diesel’s popularity has made it the subject of much speculation. Some believe that true Sour Diesel was derived as a distinct phenotype of an original strain simply named Diesel.

Note:  We are on the side of WikiLeaf believe that the original Sour Diesel strain was simply called “Diesel.”  We believe in the immaculate conception.

A legendary strain … Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel was the original refreshingly vibrant creative sativa taking us to a place where Life flows freely with joy.  This strain will lifts us from the shackles of our physical constraints to a place where we all come from … Heaven.  For a measly $32.95 for 3.5 grams, Diesel by Spinach with 22.0% THC packaged on April 13, 2020, fuming a gassy sweet exotica scent is ready to deliver the stairway to Heaven.  Buckle up!  Here we go ….

Diesel is a great vibrant rendition of Sour Diesel.  For outdoor activities, we were filled with boundless energy ripping with joy and creativity propelling us forward with great abandonment.   There is limited memory distortion at our test amount of 0.26 grams giving this strain a high productivity potential.  The really standout qualities for us were the strong uplift from the energy, voluminous amount of happiness and creativity.  All of these expressions came together to create an incredible vibrant outlook.

Activity pairing for this strain is everything under the Sun.  Diesel can also bringing Sunshine to us on dark cold rainy days.  The dark storm clouds that occasionally gather inside us can be banished with Diesel.


Diesel (Sour Diesel) by Spinach (Cronos)

For us, the word “Sour” provokes uncontrollable Pavlovian salivation in expectation of cerebral fireworks.  And, Sour Diesel is the Granddaddy of Sativa royalty.  Diesel by Spinach does not disappoint delivering us “high” into the stratosphere where Life goes on forever.  We think this is worth a try for Sativa fans.

THC: 22.0%

Quality: 8.8

Intensity; 8.2

Duration: 8.2

Total: 8.4

Cost:  $32.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  We would definitely buy again in 7 grams, or 15 grams, or 28 grams quantity.   Spinach is an excellent cultivator and this rendition of “Diesel” is a validation of their excellence.

On an investment note, something is terribly wrong in Cronosland.  And, Cronos have the best partner any cannabis company would want … one of the largest tobacco companies, Altria.  There is a big disconnect between good quality products and really bad financial results.  With a $3 billion market cap and a trailing 12-month revenue of $29 million, this is watching a trainwreck in slow motion.  This is going to hurt and Cronos have done little to reduce prices.
