East Coast Sour Diesel Marijuana Strain

Sativa-dominant cannabis strain East Coast Sour Diesel is known to quickly elevate mood and give a burst of energy. However, the Indica component, while weaker, is still potent enough to complement the head high. Smokers in the know know that most cannabis strains are the result of a cross involving two or more different strains.

East Coast Sour Diesel Weed Origins

To create East Coast Sour Diesel, a number of distinct Sour Diesel strains were crossed. You can call it what you want, but the breeder did it to create a powerful Sativa strain with all the best traits of the parent. 

It has a similar pungent fuel aroma to its parent strain but is more powerful overall. The breeder, who goes by the name “Dr. Greenthumb,” deserves the credit for that success.

ECSD Cannabis Effects

It’s important to get the basics in order first. East Coast Sour Diesel is not to be toyed with. If you want to see some examples, just watch WWE and witness how the superstars tackle and hurl each other around the ring. The same way that only trained pros should wrestle, only individuals with sufficient cannabis experience should smoke this strain.

At first, the strain gently lifts one’s spirits before launching its (positive) assault. One of the causes new users should stay away from this strain is the tremendous and immediate rush felt in the head. It may be too much for novice smokers to handle.

It’s also not the best choice if you want to get some shut-eye after lighting up. This strain of marijuana has been shown to boost energy levels. As a result, users report feeling elated and chatty while under the influence of this variety.

Not to be overtaken, a bodily euphoria also begins to set in. What makes this strain so popular is summarized below. When combined with the intellectual high, the physical high’s mellowness strikes the perfect balance.

cannabis medical benefits

Medical Uses

The fact that marijuana has therapeutic potential has contributed to cannabis’s rising profile and legalization in several nations and states. For instance, East Coast Sour Diesel, like many other types of cannabis, is excellent for relieving tension. How could you possibly be once this strain has the power to lift your spirits instantly? As a result, reducing your stress levels can help you cope with depression.

This strain is also frequently used as a pain reliever. Unfortunately, the CBD content of this cannabis is too low to be of any use to anyone suffering from epilepsy or seizures. It’s effective in alleviating both chronic and acute pain.

Users of this strain report feeling energized, as well. Comparable to a shot of espresso in that regard is indeed the East Coast Sour Diesel.

Potential Side Effects

It’s likely that you’ll get dry eyes and mouth after consuming this weed, which is the worst possible side effect you may have. In addition, there is a single issue of concern. Some users report feeling more agitated after using this strain, thus those who struggle with anxiety should avoid it.

In addition to the aforementioned unfavorable responses, dizziness is also a possibility. This is due in large part to the strain’s rapid onset and powerful cerebral head high, which is why inexperienced or new smokers should steer clear of it.

cannabis smell taste

Smell & Flavour

Try picturing an empty can of Pinesol to get a feel for East Coast Sour Diesel. This strain smells roughly like that after being sprayed and having its aroma caught. When combined with the woodsy undertones, the result is a strain with a fantastic aroma.

It’s true that not everyone shares the same aesthetic sensibilities. Given said that, if its aroma is appealing, it stands to reason that its flavor would be excellent as well. The diesel aroma remains there, but the East Coast Sour Diesel has a more prominent sour lemon flavor.

Growing East Coast Sour Diesel Seeds

The variety is not advised for first-time cannabis users, although it is among the simplest to grow. Growing this strain of marijuana should be easier for novice growers.

In its natural environment, this plant has the potential to reach a height of eight feet. Perhaps you shouldn’t do that, as your neighbors will definitely take note. Growing it indoors is preferable; if you do, you should top it off early and prune it to a height of around three feet.

Flowering Time & Yield

Growing Indoor

After 9–10 weeks of caring for this strain, it is time for it to return the favor. Yields are quick and heavy, expect to harvest 12-16 ounces per square meter indoors.

Growing Outdoor

This sour diesel strain from the East Coast thrives in bright, sunny conditions. Plants should yield 16 ounces or more per plant by October when harvesting begins.

cannabis strain FAQ

East Coast Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant strain that was developed by crossing many distinct Sour Diesel genetic variants from different east coast breeders. There is no lack of the well-known strong and fuel-like fragrance in the buds. This extremely potent sativa will bring much-needed relief for those suffering from anxiety, sadness, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

The sativa-dominant hybrid known as East Coast Sour Diesel has been compared favorably to a number of the West Coast’s most prized cannabis varieties. The high-flying mental effects of this bud are matched by its pungent odor, which originates from its parent strain, the wildly popular Sour Diesel. Multiple varaties of Sour Diesel were crossed in order to create this strain.

The amount of THC that may be found in East Coast Sour Diesel has been determined to be anywhere from 20% to 25%.

Although some people refer to East Coast Sour Diesel [ECSD] and the classic Sour Diesel as “the same thing,” these two strains of cannabis are not identical to one another. ECSD is a strain that was developed by Dr. Greenthumb and is a descendant of Sour Diesel. It is a more potent breed that, claims the breeder, has been measured at an astounding 27% THC.

Prepare a cup of coffee and some reading material (or whatever you trust). Every morning when I give it the nod, it instantly transports me into a state of clear, responsible, and slightly relaxed ‘heady’ high, preparing me to alleviate pain and maintain concentration. The key word here is “focused.” Clear-headed, unscathed by worry or racing thoughts or heartbeats. Having a pleasant, worry-free buzz rather than worrying about what the day may bring. If you don’t overdo it, unlike with some other sativas, your blood pressure shouldn’t go up.

If you’re an Indica enthusiast like me, you won’t want to use excessive amounts of this great medicine. Still, you’ll appreciate this strain’s capacity to keep you alert and focused without sacrificing the relaxing effects of a good morning’s sleep. After roughly 5 months of curing, mine became extremely smooth, with trichomes springing out of every hole. The aroma of freshly cut grass lingered for another month or so, but after months of curing, the strain had matured into a superior kind. After 5 months of curing, it tasted more like candy.

If you’re lucky as I was, you’ll get some freshly cut marijuana that you can cure personally to make it worth 10 stars; otherwise, it’s just like anything else you get legally, without appropriate curing. In any case, this could quickly become the most popular form of Sativa on the market. Happy growing up, and lots of love to you!

When I had to compose an essay for college, but my ADHD wouldn’t stop acting up, I inhaled a tiny bit of this and then settled down to crank it out. Having my full attention on the screen makes writing a breeze. I really enjoy the sour flavor and aroma. Sure, I could light up before going to the office or class.

ECSD strain makes me chatty

it is quickly separating east coast sour from west coast sour. Compared to the foxtail-like, dense motherfu****s that are East Coast sour diesel buds, West Coast sour diesel seems to have wider buds. Additionally, the West Coast’s “sour” appears to have predominately white hairs, in contrast to the ECSD’s shorter maroon strands. Having gotten that out of the way, I will say that ECSD is the sh*t. if it lives up to its billing, that’s the bomb. I plan on being extremely antisocial and irrationally angry while spending hours alone in my apartment listening to music. After lighting up an East Coast SourD, I ramble like a motivational speaker. This is NOT a place to stow away on the couch; you’ll need to get up and talk.
