Chocolate Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant (60 percent) hybrid. Bred from a cross between the acclaimed Sour Diesel and Chocolate Thai, Chocolate Diesel offers an extremely unique scent and flavour profile. The scent is dominated by notes of diesel and complemented by undertones of pine and earthy wood. Upon inhalation, the dominant flavour is that of gasoline, which then fades to a strong cocoa flavour when exhaled. These densely packed buds are forest-green in colour, with strikingly curly orange pistils throughout, with a translucent layer of trichomes covering the entire bud, giving it an icy sheen. As with all Citizen Stash strains, Chocolate Sour Diesel is hand harvested, hand trimmed and expertly cured in small batches without the use of pesticides.
About this strain: Sour Diesel
Also known as Sour D and East Coast Sour Diesel (or ECSD,) Sour Diesel is a prolific strain with somewhat tumultuous origins.
According to online sources, Sour Diesel gained prominence in New York in the mid-90s when breeder AJ (short for A**hole Joe,) accidentally pollinated a Chemdog 91 female with pollen from a Super Skunk he acquired during a trip to Amsterdam. The end result, Sour Diesel, was reportedly named for the way it soured business relationships as it spread through New York’s underground cannabis market, causing rifts as it changed hands among growers.
