About this Sativa Strain

Although the exact phenotypes of this cannabis plant are unknown, Sour Willie is believed to be a sativa-dominant hybrid. This strain sprouts tightly-packed, deep green nugs with a liberal smattering of trichomes. When pinched, these buds exude a diesel yet earthy aroma, puckering the nostrils with hints of spice. When smoked, Sour Willie tastes heavily of burnt gas and charcoaled wood.

Lab results show its cannabinoid content at roughly 17% THC and 1% CBD.

In terms of its effects, this strain strikes a delicate balance between the best parts of a strong head and a strong body high. It sends a shot of energy to the brain, lending to focus and calm, yet it also lends a tingly, numbing body buzz that’s great to easing muscles, resolving tension, and alleviating pain. For those with sensitive tummies, Sour Willie may work wonders for combatting nausea.

Common side effects include dry eyes and dry mouth, though some users may experience paranoia or anxiety with higher doses.

History

No one knows who exactly first bred Sour Willie, but it’s likely a cross of Sour Diesel and Willie Nelson.

Description

This one is definitely a daytime med, getting the mind moving but still having some body effects to go along with the predominantly head-neck-shoulders Sativa effects package.

Lineage

Story

The Willie Nelson father is Highland Nepalese x Vietnamese Black

Appearance

Broad arrowhead-shaped wasabi green sepals, arranged in foxtailed stacked calyxes, with bursts of piper red pistils, and above-average coverage with average-stalked trichomes with large heads

Aroma

A pungent Diesel presence was in the forefront when this strain was sitting in the jar/bag, with a skunky and slightly acrid scent propelling a hint of citrus. When we ground it up, the Diesel elements seemed to fade away, giving instead a lightly sweet and complex aroma with hints of fruit and spice. The change was unexpected and refreshing, because Sour Diesel seems to completely take over so many crosses.

Flavor

The flavor was a bit confusing and not as pungent as the aroma, giving us a sharp attack with just a hint of Diesel, then basically leaving behind a clean, fresh, mentholated feeling in the mouth rather than much of a taste. The smoke was smooth and didn’t cause coughing except on the largest hits, while the flush appeared to be nearly perfect, leaving behind only a fluffy white ash. This one was enjoyed by all and was repeatedly described as “pleasant”, but just didn’t wow us with a pungent flavor.

Qualities

This strain hit us with an almost entirely Sativa package of effects, increasing both the mental and physical energy of our staff, filling us with a buzzing body and head presence. Facial warmth, ocular/temple pressure, some body numbing, and a racing heart continued through most of the initial hour, eventually backing off slightly into a less racy and cerebral state. We found conversation easy when it was around, but it was also easy to get stuck in your own head so to speak, staring off in space while deep in thought, or zoning in on a project and shutting out the outside world. The buzzing body continued throughout most of the experience and served to make this a fairly versatile med in terms of context, making us equally satisfied with activities or relaxation. A smooth decline in effect left us feeling relaxed but still aware, with no real crash to speak of.

This one is definitely a daytime med, getting the mind moving but still having some body effects to go along with the predominantly head-neck-shoulders Sativa effects package.
