Spyrock Sour, a Sour Diesel phenotype that has been developed and refined by Aficionado Seeds, reached the finals in the “fruit” category at the 2015 Golden Tarp Awards. The strain became available through Flow Kana shortly thereafter, for Flow Kana’s usual price of $50 an eighth.
These fluffy flowers have a yummy funky fragrance with overtones of sour citrus and sweet mint tinged with fuel, soil, overripe fruit, onion rings, menthol, and floral perfume. The zingy, mouth-puckering flavor — juicy lemon and lime carbonated tartness along with a layer of barnyard and dusty wood chips — stays amazingly tasty all the way through to the end of a joint.
The effect is strong but not overpowering. It’s uplifting, creatively inspiring, and functional, with a nice balance of energetic stimulation and mellow relaxation, and none of the anxiety, jitteriness, or paranoia that Sour Diesel sometimes provokes. This floaty high puts you in a slightly silly state of curious contentment, in which your body wants to move and your mind wants to think.
