East Coast Sour Diesel Strain

Fans of wrestling should recognize Diesel, one of WWE’s most dominant superstar. But no, the East Coast Sour Diesel was not named after the famous wrestler, but they do have one thing in common. Both are dominating in their respective fields.

The East Coast Sour Diesel is a Sativa-dominant cannabis strain that could uplift one’s spirit in no time at all, as well as provide an energetic boost. Even so, the lesser Indica side still carries enough potency to blend in with the cerebral high smoothly.

As experienced cannabis users know, most strains are a cross between two or more parent strains. In the case of the East Coast Sour Diesel, it is a cross between carefully selected Sour Diesel strains. Call it a bastard if you will, but the reason for doing that is so that the breeder could design a highly potent Sativa strain carrying the best qualities of its parent.

Not only does the strain retain the strong fuel smell of its parent, but it is also an improvement in terms of its potency. For that, we have to thank the breeder, Dr. Greenthumb.

    The strain starts its assault (in a good way) beginning with uplifting one’s mood. The sudden and powerful head rush is one of the reasons why novice users should avoid this strain. Potentially, it could be overwhelming for inexperienced smokers.

    It is also a strain that is not recommended for those who want to sleep it off after smoking. As it is, this particular cannabis also provides a rush of energy. In other words, this strain makes one feel euphoric and bubbly.

    Not to be outdone, the physical body high starts to creep in. Here is what most users like about this strain. The smoothness of the body high blends nicely with the cerebral to provide a great balance.


    To understand how the East Coast Sour Diesel, imagine having a can of Pinesol. After spraying and catching its odor, that is more or less how this strain smells. Add to that the hint of forest and what you have is a great smelling strain.


    Admittedly, taste is something that not all people can agree with. Having said that, if one were to find its fragrance pleasant, then it follows that they should find it great tasting as well. The fuel smell of East Coast Sour Diesel carries over but with a more pronounced lemony sour taste.

    Adverse reactions

    If there is one negative reaction that is expected with the use of this cannabis, then it has to be dry eyes, and most likely, accompanied by dry mouth. There is also one concern too. Those who are dealing with anxiety issues should not use this strain as it is known to increase anxiousness in some users.

    Other than the above-mentioned negative reactions, one thing that can also occur isdizziness. This is mostly brought about by the sudden and intense cerebral head high, and one reason why beginners and novice smokers should avoid this strain.


    One of the reasons for the popularity of cannabis and legalization in some countries or states is its medical use. For instance, like many cannabis strains, the East Coast Sour Diesel is a great stress reliever. How could one not be when this strain could instantly switch mood to a positive one? As such, dealing with depression is less difficult so as long as there is relief from stress.

    Another popular use of this particular strain is in pain management. Unfortunately, this cannabis does not contain enough CBD levels which would greatly benefit patients with seizure or epilepsy. It does help in reducing the symptoms of chronic pains or ones brought about by other illnesses.

    As mentioned, users of the strain also feel energetic. In that sense, the East Coast Sour Diesel is very much like a cup of espresso.

      Grown outdoor, this plant could grow as high as eight feet tall. Perhaps that is not such a good idea as it is surely noticeable by neighbors. A better choice would be to grow it indoor, and if so, topping the plant early and keeping it to around three feet is ideal for indoor cultivation.

      Flowering Time


      After 9 to 10 weeks of taking care of this plant, it is its turn to take care of you. Beginning with a generous harvest of 12 to 16 ounces per square meters, the reward comes the moment it is used.
