Sour Candy strain is a cross between famous Sour Diesel and Bubble Gum from G13 Lab. The cultivators developed it as a mildly potent Sativa dominant hybrid with amazing, hilarious effects that are perfect for socialization issues.

The potency of 15%-20% THC makes it available to all users. Only prone to panic and sensitive to Sativa consumers may want to steer clear. It smells exactly like bubble gum and sour candy with diesel notes. The mouth-watering taste is similar to fragrance, finishing with a sweet fuel like aftertaste.

Consumers admire the high delivered by Sour Candy strain because it doesn't get overwhelming, instead, it uplifts mood and brings along good vibes. The effects show up at first with a headrush that soon is replaced with a giggly sensation. The strain is said to be the perfect one for social settings. This weed kills social anxiety making communications easy and fun. Users admit becoming more talkative and smiley. They also advise it as an excellent tool to alleviate nervousness before speaking in front of the audience.

The happy cerebral euphoria also produces creativity and focus, soon followed by relaxation. For medical purposes, consumers use Sour Candy weed strain to cure pains, stress, depression, headaches and nausea. The best time to use this cannabis is in the afternoon.

Those who want to breed Sour Candy plants at home can purchase seeds online or offline. They grow tall and take a bit longer than the average period of 11-12 weeks before thriving, making the strain not the right choice for impatient growers.

Smoked this with my girlfriend and had one of the deepest, most bizarre yet satisfying conversations of my life. We talked about anything and everything under the sun

It would have been really great if not for the fact that I felt super dizzy after vaping. It also kept me up all night. Definitely not the one for me.
