Like most sativas, this strain has tall plants with long spindle shaped neon green leaves. The buds are scattered and are clothed in milky trichrome layers. Beautiful orange pistils add to the aesthetics of this strain. The buds are hard to break by hand because of the sticky trichomes.

For new patients, this is a strain to try judiciously as the hit may be overwhelming. But once you get used to it you may end up getting fixated on the buzz of creativity that comes with it. The couch lock is also one to look forward to. Super Sour Diesel will spur your appetite as it also reduces the feeling of nausea. This may be helpful for patients with chronically low appetite.

As much as you can consume this strain in the evening, be prepared to lay awake in bed fighting off racing thoughts. It may be better to divert this mind buzz to some creative projects.
