Damn Sour is a deeply pungent strain that offers mostly sativa effects. It comes to us from Greenhouse Seeds and is descended from the fragrant Sage N Sour. This strain is a solid daytime smoke that allows for extended concentration and mental stimulation.
Damn Sour's flowers set themselves apart with a typically large size. Although mostly Sativa, the big nuggets adhere in a mostly indica fashion, ark and bright with small leaves that spiral tightly inward toward their central core. The leaves themselves are a patchwork of dark and bright green and are twisted through with curly orange hairs (which are actually pistils, reproductive structures meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants). Icy white trichomes also cover the inner and outer surfaces of these dense flowers.
As you might have guessed from its name, Damn Sour gives off a strong and divisive odor. On a first whiff, the strain smells somewhat rancid, like fermenting organic material. A closer inspection, however, brings out deeper earthy notes, similar to damp soil. When they have broken apart or ground up, Damn Sour gives off a tangy, sour that has some hints of fruitiness. Despite all these bold flavors, however, the strain burns with a smooth and easily ingested smoke when combusted in a pipe or a joint.
It isn't long before Damn Sour begins to reveal its stimulating effects. Shortly after exhaling its heavy, tangy smoke, the strain can cause an increase in blood flow to the temples and lower forehead as well as some slight twitching. As they become used to these odd tics, though, consumers may notice that their thinking has taken on a new character. Ideas may jump from one to the next in rapid succession while certain ideas -- or even objects -- can seem much more interesting than they ordinarily would. This kind of plugged-in thinking can help facilitate productivity, whether you're working on demanding, analytical tasks or mundane chores like cleaning the house or doing laundry. Smokers may also find that Damn Sour makes them more talkative and sociable, making it a great conversational aid when shared with both good friends and relative strangers. The strain is associated with relatively mild physical effects, with some consumers describing light relaxation or relief from stress. For the most part, though, Damn Sour offers wide-awake energy and can be a great way to enhance activities that require complex coordination, like working out, hiking, or even, given the right circumstances, sex. Because of its mostly active properties, Damn Sour is recommended for daytime use; if used at bedtime, it's liable to keep smokers wide awake.
Damn Sour's brain-focused effects can also have many uses for medical cannabis patients. Its uplifting, euphoric character can temporarily soothe the troubling symptoms of moderate stress and anxiety. The strain's lucid sense of concentration, meanwhile, may be of use to those with attention deficit disorders. Physically speaking, this bud can alleviate aches and pains that are due to chronic conditions as well as those due to common inflammation-related discomforts like headaches and nausea. Because it can bring about a strong, disorienting sense of mind race in the wrong set and setting, Damn Sour is not recommended for patients who are prone to paranoia or panic or those who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately for home growers, seeds of Damn Sour can be purchased through online retailers. Once obtained, it can be fostered indoors or outdoors in a hot, Mediterranean-like climate. These sativa-inflected plants can be tall and branchy, and indoor growers may want to occasionally trim their crops to manage their height. The strain flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and reaches maturity by early October when cultivated outdoors. It can offer up to 65 grams (or 2.3 ounces) of flower per square foot of greenery.
Although its aroma can be overpowering, Damn Sour should be sampled by Sativa lovers whenever spotted. Its euphoric effects can be especially nice to enjoy on a trip outdoors.
