Sour Diesel is a hybrid strain of Cannabis sativa. Described as "a cross between cannabis and caffeine", it is known for its "uplifting qualities" and its pungent aromas of fuel and citrus. Samples of the strain have tested as high as 30.6% THC, and the strain is also high in the terpenes alpha-Pinene, caryophyllene, and humulene. In 2016 it was the fourth most popular strain in the United States, after Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies, and Gorilla Glue #4, according to a report by the cannabis information site Leafly. Canadian medical cannabis producer Aphria has rebranded Sour Diesel as Kusawa in order to "circumvent public stigma".
According to Leafly, as of 4/23/2017, an ounce of Sour Diesel can be priced in a Denver dispensary from anywhere between $120 and $180. However, Sour Diesel was formerly known as a premium strain of marijuana, with the price for one ounce rising to over $1000 on Wall Street in 2004. It was selling for $240 per ounce in Denver during 2014
