Sour cream is something of an acquired taste, and the same can be said for the cannabis strain named after this fermented condiment (also, they both go great with nachos).
The potency of Sour Cream marijuana strikes first on the nose with a pungent combination of fuel and earth, accompanied by a sweet, spicy note that will have connoisseurs thinking of the strains infamous heritage. If you let the smoke sit in your mouth for a minute, you’ll notice a creamy texture along with its sweet, spicy, tropical flavor.
Sour Cream marijuana is a sativa dominant hybrid that displays its effects with aplomb. A high THC content (it can range anywhere from 15% to 25%) lends the experience a bright, euphoric buzz and a shot of energy that will have you motivated and focused. The 30% indica creeps after awhile to deliver sought-after relaxation, though too much of a good thing and you may find yourself feeling decidedly lethargic. Some consumers have taken advantage of these effects to help cope with symptoms of stress, depression, and PTSD, while others enjoy the sedative-like qualities to treat aches and pains.
Despite its genetics suggesting otherwise, Sour Cream marijuana seeds grow more like an indica, though it’s not necessarily a strain that is considered resistant to common problems like mold, mildew, or pests. Still, beginner marijuana growers should find success cultivating Sour Cream, which tends to finish flowering with 10-12 weeks.
