THC: 8% – 10%
CBD: 10% – 12%
GENETICS: NYC Diesel, Sour Diesel
APPEARANCE: These are pretty typical sativa-style buds, long and narrow. They were almost as solid-feeling as an indica bud when squeezed gently, but a telltale give in the flowers reveals they have an airier, looser internal structure than any indica bud.
SMELL: Woody, Earthy, Sweet
BEST FOR TREATING: Insomnia, Cancer, Pain, Depression, Muscle Spasms, Headaches, Stress
CREATED FEELINGS: Being a high CBD strain, Sour Tsunami was explicitly and specifically bred to be used for medical purposes. Those seeking relief from conditions treatable by CBD (which range from insomnia to cancer) and not to get high will appreciate Sour Tsunami’s utilitarian.
DURATION: Around 1 to 2 hours
SIMILAR STRAINS: Sour Diesel, Cannatonic, ACDC, Canna-Tsu, Flo, Green Crack
Sour Tsunami is a strain that became famous for being one of the first to be specifically bred for high CBD rather than THC content. The result is a strain that’s effective at treating pain and inflammation without producing a significant “high” that is linked to high THC. Sour Tsunami CBD levels test as high as 10 or 11%, while THC is usually under 10%. Lawrence Ringo of the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective bred this strain over four years of hard work by crossing Sour Diesel plants with NYC Diesel. This sativa-dominant hybrid flowers within 9 weeks, producing dense, dark green buds with dark green and purple-tinged leaves. The buds have a familiar musky diesel smell with sweet undertones.
