Purple Sour Diesel – Buddy Boy
This sample was comprised of compact, dense buds that are light green in color and moderately covered in trichomes that almost make the bud appear yellow. An inspection with microscope indicated that the sample was heavily handled as many of the trichomes were missing their heads. The few heads that were present were cloudy in color indicating the sample was harvested near maturity. Moderate pistil coverage suggests this particular cut is a sativa leaning hybrid strain. The sample was well trimmed with no excess leaves. Despite its name, there were no purple hues in the sample.
Overall a very mild smell profile that did not become pronounced until the buds were ground. Once ground, the mild fuel aroma that is consistent with sour diesel became apparent. There is also a hint of sweetness from the Purple Kush.
The taste was significantly more pronounced than the smell. This sample had a strong fuel/diesel taste to start. The sweetness from the purple begins to come through as you continue smoking. Perhaps the most analogous flavor profile is GG4 with that combination of sweet and sour. The taste continued to improve as the joint smoked, which is always a good sign.
Overall an enjoyable smoke, but it was harsh, which resulted in more coughing than usual. I had to take breaks smoking the joint because the smoke was irritating. There was a combination of black and white ash, indicating that the sample was not fully flushed.
The effects come on very quickly, as in before the joint is finished. First, the classic frontal lobe sativa buzz and then the slight body relaxation. That distinct halo/headband behind the eyes is what is most pronounced. This sample induced strong sativa effects to start and then becomes a more balanced hybrid. This strain is perfect for those that want to feel uplifted without the raciness or paranoia associated with traditional Sour Diesel. This strain is great for pain management and relaxation.
This particular sample of purple sour diesel was an enjoyable sativa dominant hybrid that induces a relaxing head high. Not as racy as Sour Diesel, the Purple Kush influence in this strain helped smooth out the effects. This strain could be smoked in the morning or before bed (assuming you wait 30 minutes or so for initial effects to settle in).This sample was comprised of compact, dense buds that are light green in color and moderately covered in trichomes that almost make the bud appear yellow.

Sour Grape: Sour Diesel x Granddaddy Purp
Sour Grape is the cross of one of the best nighttime Indica, Granddaddy Purp, with one of the most widely smoked Sativa strains of all time, Sour Diesel.
Granddaddy Purp fans are in for a treat with this one! Like GDP, these flowers were chunky and irregular, but rather than a deep shade of purple, they were light green and absolutely covered with a thick veil of frosty trichromes. Definitely some of the prettiest buds I’ve seen since some of the Girl Scout Cookies we had in San Diego a while back.
The scent of Sour Grape was a very complex blend of a grapes, jasmine, and earthy undertones that become more fuel-like after grinding up the flowers. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to taste it after I got this far.
The vapor produced by our Vapir Rise Vaporizer was some of the most tasty, dense vapor I have experienced with any strain, even at lower temperatures around 350°F (one pack was good for 4-5 fills of the bag, tons of THC). The flavor of grapes was overwhelming out of the balloon; it almost reminded me of the grape cough syrup I used to hate when I was a child.
“The grape flavor was overwhelming out of the balloon; it almost reminded me of the grape cough syrup I used to have when I was a child.”
Medicating with this strain during the day enhanced my mood significantly and the high was super clean. A clear-headed high was coupled by a numbing body buzz that immobilizes you if you are in a comfy position; this can be attributed to the GDP genetics. The full-bodied buzz was extremely relaxing and lasted for about two hours after vaporizing.
Although GDP is known to make patients extremely tired, I found that the Sour Diesel genetics counter balance the sedative effects; the Sour Grape strain didn’t make me tired at all at low doses. However, I did find that this strain does have the ability to become quite heavy after two to three balloons. Sour Grape tends to give you a very enjoyable couch-lock sensation at higher vaporizing temperatures and dosages.
If you are lucky enough to stumble upon a proper cut of this wonderful hybrid, be sure to pick up an extra dose; this unique strain doesn’t come around often!
