"I've been smoking a high CBD strain, Harlequin, but want to try a higher THC strain now. Is Sour Diesel a good choice for chronic pain and insomnia?"
Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients. This strain took root in the early 90's with cannabis breeder Chem Dog, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdawg, Northern Lights, and a Skunk phenotype.
Sour Diesel is often used for chronic pain and nausea but is praised for its help with anxiety and stress due to its paranoid-free effect!
Sour Diesel is one of the most popular strains in Ca. It is a Sativa and has a high average of THC so it would be a good choice for daytime pain management. it is energizing, used for stress, pain and depression. also a good choice for someone with social anxiety.
People often use Sour Diesel as a daytime strain and smokers report it to be an energizing and "cerebral" high with very little body effects. It is a predominately Sativa strain, and therefore affects your mind without the physical drag. It is very popular as a creativity booster or a good strain to use when you want to focus on a task or go out and explore the world with a little boost.
People report it helping with depression, lethargy, anxiety, and busy mind. I've heard it helping with pain only in that it can distract you from the pain. For insomnia I would likely recommend a strain heavier in indica that will knock you out.
