Its potent cerebral high provides a reprieve against certain mental conditions like stress and depression.

With THC levels of up to 22%, Sour Poison packs quite the punch when used as a party strain. However, its high THC levels go beyond the recreational. After all, the same psychoactive compounds also alleviate a variety of afflictions.

Adverse Reaction

Some may also experience some redness in the eyes. Regardless, both are usually minor setbacks especially at the height of the high.

Chronic stress dangerously affects health. It can make one feel constantly agitated and encourage self-destructive thoughts, which leads to anxiety and depression easily taking over the mind. And, in dangerously high levels, it can send one straight to the emergency room. As such, it is important to find release every now and then.

Used moderately, Sour Poison can fight against stress. Its THC and CBD components fill in the missing chemical compounds of the endocannabinoid system, essentially stabilizing the mood and enhancing it. For this reason, it can also alleviate symptoms of depression and other mental conditions like PTSD and anxiety.

Sour Poison appeals to growers who do not mind delayed gratification. After all, the strain takes its sweet time when it comes to blossoming. The wait is well worth it, however, especially at the sight of its huge resinous buds.

Perfectly influenced by Durban Poison’s genes, each nug is chunky yet tapered on one end. Once mature, the buds turn into a forest green color with olive undertones. Sparsely covering it are burnt orange hairs and a layer of sparkling trichomes.

A tall plant, Sour Diesel necessitates early topping and constant height management. Besides encouraging lateral branching, it helps aerate plants and spread nutrients. People who are also looking to be discreet will have to install odor-control systems as the strain’s potency makes it very pungent.

At this time, though, seeds from the original breeder have not been made available.

Flowering Time


It typically takes Sour Poison between 9 and 11 weeks for each square meter to flower at least 12 ounces of buds. However, growers may apply the Screen of Green method to hasten the blossoming period and encourage even higher yields.


When cultivated outdoors in a warm climate, Sour Poison should flower by mid to late October. In the hands of an expert grower, it can produce more than 16 ounces of buds per plant.
