Sour Haze lives up to its namesake, with pure sativa flowers that smell so sour they'll make the nose scrunch up. The scent has a definite citrus and jet fuel quality, and when burned these buds taste like diesel-dipped lemon peels turned to smoke.
Lab tests place its potency around 19-26% THC, making this strain significantly stronger than the average.
This strain will provide a frantic, energetic buzz in the head lending itself to focus, functionality, and all around fun times. It may work well to manage headaches, migraines, glaucoma, chronic pain and inflammation, fatigue, exhaustion, or preventing appetite. Sour Haze is recommended for morning and early daytime use, although experienced smokers may be able to handle its energizing effects at night.
The most common side effect from Sour Haze is cottonmouth. Those sensitive to sativas may experience paranoia, anxiety, or lightheadedness.
