History and Heritage
The origin of the Sour Diesel cannabis strain is a bit of a whimsical American tale. Sour Diesel has been reported as a cross of the Original Diesel and “mystery strain” from the West Coast. This mystery strain was purchased by an ambitious fellow named Chem Dawg during a Grateful Dead show in Colorado in 1991. Our mystery strain turned out to be a tasty favorite and followed the Grateful Dead on tour to the East Coast where she settled down for propagation. A few years later, a hermaphroditic strain of Super Skunk accidentally pollinated an entire grow room and Sour Diesel, as well as her sister, OG Kush, were born.
