Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze

Strain: Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze
Lineage: Sour Diesel x Super Silver Haze
Breeder: Connoisseur Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Sativa

Appearance: Light mossy green nugs with orange / rust pistillate hairs throughout composed mostly of loosely clustered medium sized bracts. The resin glands on this sample are particularly large and have a sandy appearance to the naked eye.

Aroma / Flavor: Light and nutty with woody floral and foresty notes – the flavors and aromas of this phenotype are pleasant but very subtle and light, atypical of most high potency strains. After a session, the room is filled with that distinct “church” smell associated with haze varieties.

Overall Effects: This plant was grown from a pack of Connoisseur Genetics SSSDH, which is a rework of a Reservoir Seeds strain of the same name. As with most haze heavy hybrids, the onset of the SSSDH was smooth and gradual – beginning with feelings of lightness and well being and slowly evolving into a functional dreamy high with the classic “haze vision” (An almost static like appearance in your peripheral sight and an added lucidity noticed mainly with rays of light and colors). When used moderately, this can be a great morning or daytime medicine with little noticeable “come down” when the effects begin to wain. This particular phenotype, while exhibiting mostly Sativa traits finished in a respectable 9 weeks with mostly cloudy (and a few amber) resin glands.

Phyllis Diller

Strain: Phyllis Diller
Lineage: Unkown
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Sativa
Dispensary: MMRC – Sherman Oaks, CA

Appearance: The Diller is that lime green color that almost glows, accompanied by light pink / rust pistils. A respectable amount of beige trichomes give the surface a grainy appearance. Surprisingly dense for a sativa.

Aroma / Flavor: Sharp Lemon Citrus aroma with a complex Lighter fluid bottom – and it doesn’t stop there, upon exhale there’s a delicate floral innuendo that brings to mind Super Silver Haze.

Overall Effects: I don’t know why they named this stuff after a comedian because there isn’t anything laughable about this strain. For those in need of a serious pick me up, this stuff is where it’s at. The high is immediate and soaring, felt almost entirely in the head leaving the you alert and focused. The flavor is indescribable, with a range from lighter fluid or gas (but nothing like the sour diesel family) all the way to fresher citric notes suggesting the presence of the terpene limonene. The high is intense and euphoric, and the unique flavor can easily cause overindulgence. There is little ceiling to the effects – your mind just keeps racing faster and faster until your left with sweaty palms, anxious, and peeking through your blinds. Not for the faint of heart. One of the best sativas I’ve had the privileged of smoking here in SoCal – respect to the breeder responsible for this gem.

Sour Cream (Sour Diesel x G13/Haze)

Dna Genetics - Sour Cream

Strain: Sour Cream
Lineage: Sour Diesel x G13/Haze
Breeder: DNA Genetics
Sativa/Indica: 70% / 30%
Grow Notes: Sour Cream is a picky eater and prefers low doses of nutrients, reaching maturity in 10-12 weeks depending on phenotype chosen. The phenotype for review was chopped at 11 weeks of flowering and was grown from feminized seeds from DNA Genetics.

Description: You can smell the Sour Cream well before you open the bag or prescription vial. More complex in smell and high than your average Sour Diesel hybrid, the Sour Cream really has a uniquely calming stone. The buds are light green with light orange/pinkish hairs and glisten with resin.┬áThe smell and flavor have a sour pungency reminiscent of it’s Sour Diesel heritage, but with a mentholated floral twist that lingers around in the nose and on the tongue. For a 70% sativa variety, the buds are quite dense – similar in structure to your typical Sour Diesel but with a more open structure. The effects of the sour cream come on slowly and last long; after a toke or two you feel the burst of energy typically associated with sativa heavy varieties, but this quickly evolves into a dreamy stone that will leave you napping or staring out the window (or at the wall) daydreaming. I’ve found Sour Cream to have an unusually low tolerance build up even with prolonged daily use,┬áconsistently┬ádelivering the dreamy stone I’ve grown so accustomed too. I’m yet to be disappointed by any of DNA’s offerings.
