However, instead of harming people, the Luca Brasi x Sour Diesel strain does the exact opposite. It helps patients get through the suffering of either mental or physical health issues with its impressive CBD levels of 13%.
The Indica-dominant herb’s parents are obvious from its moniker. Colorado-based breeders The Bank Genetics selected a female Luca Brasi which is famous for its high CBD content. The next genetic base is a male Sour Diesel, added in for its vigor in the grow room.
