Strain Flavor and Aroma

Sour Cream features a diesel-like aroma passed on from its parents. Due to the bisabolol terpene, this smell is brightened by sweet and citrus notes, which increase when combusting the flowers. While breaking or grinding the buds, consumers detect pungent and flowery hints. On the exhale, the smoke tastes a little earthy with the smell of wet soil. This weed is abundant in other prominent terpenes such as:

  • Myrcene
  • Linalool
  • Caryophyllene
  • Humulene
  • Terpineol

Sour Cream Effects and Medical Uses

After smoking, the high comes on fast, providing an uplifted mood and happiness. The initial effects manifest in a cerebral focus by sharpening colors and sounds. Smokers remain conversational and energetic. They get an ability to concentrate on tasks, especially stressful ones. As the high keeps progressing, users may feel complete relaxation and notice that their muscular tension reduces. With an increased dosage, sedation can transform into a fully relaxed state and tether you to the sofa. This is a reason why the Sour Cream strain is recommended for evening use.

This marijuana is a good choice for people suffering from:

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
