While Sour Diesel can have various effects on different people, it is well-known for producing a euphoric, energizing experience. It produces a very cerebral high, which is often described as both “dreamy” and “relaxing.” Thanks to its fast-acting pain relief, euphoria, and stress reduction, Sour Diesel is a favorite among medical cannabis users, though it is equally popular among recreational users.
However, there’s a lot more to Sour Diesel than euphoria and relaxation. The following are just a few of its most common effects:
- Euphoria – While feelings of euphoria are pretty common among all strains of cannabis, they are particularly strong with Sour Diesel. Due to its high levels of THC, Sour Diesel produces strong cerebral effects that elevate mood and energy levels. This is why it is often prescribed to treat depression.
- Energy Level – Users generally report high levels of energy when using the Sour Diesel strain. Sour Diesel rarely has sedative effects, so it can be consumed at just about any time of day without the risk of getting drowsy. It does make users more relaxed, but the mood-elevating effects generally lift energy levels as well.
- Creativity – Many users will have creative thoughts and ideas with Sour Diesel. The reduction of anxiety allows for thoughts to flow more freely, while higher energy levels generate better productivity.
- Sensitivity – Sensations are amplified, so listening to music or watching movies can be much more enjoyable. Additionally, since Sour Diesel does produce a mild body high, physical sensations are more pleasurable.
- Relaxation – Even though Sour Diesel boosts energy levels, it also helps alleviate anxiety. The euphoric effects combine with increased energy to help users destress and enjoy the experience. That said, like most strains that are high in THC, Sour Diesel can cause paranoia in higher doses, so users should be careful with the dosage when using Sour Diesel.
- Pain Relief – While Sour Diesel does not have high CBD levels, it is a good choice for aiding with pain relief. The body high produced by Sour Diesel is mild, but when combined with the euphoric cerebral high, it produces a numbing and relieving sensation throughout the entire body.
