Weed Review: Sour Diesel Revisited

We bought this weed for $60/8th from some guy who didn't want to stop playing his playstation. It's a personal favorite known as Sour Diesel, or sometimes "sour dee", or when crossed with another strain it's usually named "_____ Diesel". LAist likes it so much we're doing it again.

Pre-Smoke Examination:
The medium sized nugs range from the size of a quarter up to 2 inches, and are not too fluffy or too dense. In between the dark orange hairs the buds are coated with crystals, it looks like sugar. The smell is pungent like pink eraser shavings, but sweet like breathing in air from the mountains. Also, the nugs could have been trimmed better.

Post-Smoke Examination:
It's great for being ground, leaving you with the perfect consistency to roll it or put it in a bowl. It's sill not too dry, but not exactly fresh off the vine. Even when ground the bowl burns slow, and builds up a fat thick creamy hit, a sure nice way to say "SURPRISE!" to your lungs. The taste is beautiful, kinda woodsy and deep forest-ish with subtle hints of sweetness.

This one is popular with us for good reasons, it's pleasantly strong flavor and consistently pleasant high. Sour Diesel is often bought up quickly, especially when it's good and under the typical clinic price of $75. We might go buy another 8th before we even run out just to make sure we have some for reserves.

Look for it in your local neighborhood pot guy's living room.
