Sour Flower Strain Review


Strain Review: Sour Flower

Our intrepid ganja chronnoisseur, Dragonfly, travels the world in search of the best cannabis and evaluates strains ranging from the popular and plentiful to the rare and exotic. She samples each strain in joints, glass bongs, vaporizers and bubblers, whenever available, taking careful notes of the smell, taste, and nuanced effects of each one.

A pure sativa that is a back-crossing of two-time Cannabis Cup winner Super Silver Haze, Sour Flower is the quintessential experience that most people are looking for when they say, “Let’s get high.” Uncontrollable laughter, exuberant happiness, and the feeling of your cares melting away all are things you can expect from the Sour Flower experience.

Unlike its light and airy antecedent, Sour Flower produces dense, albeit small, sugar-coated nugs that look like they’ve been kissed by the morning dew and then dipped in white glitter. Its creator, Joe Clone, is also responsible for connoisseur strains like Cherry Haze, Dark, Blanana, and Dopium (a.k.a. Silver Hashplant).

The smell: Sour Flower has a smell all its own, but in a word, it’s the olfactory equivalent of the color pink, and quite reminiscent of pink Laffy Taffy. This full-bodied connoisseur strain also features a tropical mélange of pineapple, coconut, and banana, with a peachy base. No one scent dominates the other; it is a true equal-parts blend. Rounding out its fruity fragrance, a soft, floral aroma with a hint of chrysanthemum highlights this hazy strain.

The dry hit: In its pre-burn state, Sour Flower is incredibly fruity, with a deep, complex flavor that smacks of classic haze.

The flavor: Sour Flower tastes sweet and fruity with a tart, hazy, finish. The tropical nose of this strain translates remarkably to taste – it essentially tastes just like it smells.

The high: Electric and cerebral, the Sour Flower high excites the mind, relaxes the body, and invigorates the spirit. It can also make you lose it with laughter like Tom Cruise on the Oprah Show (but not in a mentally unstable way). Perfect for parties and social settings, it engenders curiosity and sincere interest that leaves you fixated on whatever or whoever is right in front of you. Sour Flower is exceptional at sparking creativity, and it offers the kind of high-level motivation that encourages you to actually jot down your ideas, as opposed to stashing them in the “What was I just talking about?” file.

Need a distraction? Boss on your back? Boyfriend PMS-ing? World falling apart? Sour Flower, all the way. It’ll cause you to lose awareness of your pain and forget all your worries. On the medicinal tip, Sour Flower is great for releasing stress and tension, and it’s also noteworthy as a pain reliever.

The word: Sour Flower is a rare find. It was bred for the remarkable high that a double-dose of Super Silver Haze was sure to produce – in other words, head stash, not commercial production. One of the most epic choices for a daytime toke I have found, this strain boasts a THC content of 18%, and confronts even demanding days with a lightness of heart and an energetic vibrancy. You’ll remain lucid enough to handle big projects and multi-tasking, plus be inspired to do something productive with the creative energy it produces. Sour Flower brings flower power to any well-rounded head stash.

    Haven’t tried anything of it’s like, although the Mango I grew last year had some of those qualities, I am always looking for that smoke which won’t weaken my motivation to take the next step from creative thinking to atualising the image. I am definitely interested in giving it a go.

      Have you tried it? Because, if so, you’d know that when it comes to strength/aroma/flavor/effect, the Sour Flower and SSH are worlds apart.

      Great review Dragonfly!
      I reviewed this in the March 2013 issue of NUGGETRY Magazine, and love it!
