This week I got my hands on Sour Diesel Bx2. This is a great example of a classic strain reimagined, and if you have ever smoked Sour Diesel you’ll have a good idea of what to expect…
We first covered Sour Diesel previously back in November 2016:
And East Coast Sour Diesel again in October 2017:
But that wasn’t enough! This new strain by Karma Genetics combines the original Sour Diesel with Karma’s Biker Kush male plant, locking in some traits before crossing it back with the original Sour Diesel plant.
This Sour Diesel has a wonderfully complex appearance, with copper and gold pistils and a darker green colour.
The trichomes are clearly visible but this carries an old school look, perhaps picking up more indica traits from the Biker Kush.
The sample is dense and hard to the touch and overall has a solid look, with densely stacked calyxs.
Wow this one smells delicious! Moreish and incredibly true to the name – Sour Diesel has the familiar jet fuel stench of the biker kush male.
It also smells incredibly pungent once the bud has been ground, delivering moreish gassy notes that reek like kush and diesel (petrol).
Interestingly, it took some disturbing to get the smell out -I think I left this sample sitting around for slightly too long, because the smell went from 1 to 10 real quick as I broke the bud apart!
I consumed Karma Genetics’ Sour Diesel Bx2 in my ISMOKE bong and my Mighty Vaporizer. The smoking experience of this one is both smooth and carries the flavour, but vaping provides truly staggering levels of pungency.
The first hit from my vape was almost too much (not really, but look at my expression in the GIF above), with those pine and gassy terps hitting so strong they were making my mouth and eyes water.
As strong as she is tasty, Sour Diesel Bx2 kicks in after just a few minutes. I smoked two bowls and enjoyed a vape chamber in that time, so by the time it started kicking in I knew I was in for a nice ride.
The high was sativa leaning to start, lifting me up and making me feel chatty and confident. However, after 10-15 minutes I felt a new wave as the indica side of the effects kicked in and I wanted to sit down again.
I really like what Karma Genetics has done to the classic Sour Diesel with the Sour Diesel Bx2. This strain delivers strongly in all areas, and I would happily smoke this daily.
