Genetics of the Sour Tsunami Strain

Illicit Gardens takes pride in the meticulous cultivation of Missouri’s favorite weed strains, including our CBD and CBG-rich strain Sour Tsunami. This exceptional cannabis strain results from the fusion of renowned sativa-dominant hybrids Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel.

Sour Tsunami boasts key terpenes such as caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene, which are all known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Limonene gives the Sour Tsunami strain its bright, citrus essence and revitalizing attributes, while the other terpenes add a gassy, evergreen undertone and calming effects.

When it comes to cannabinoids, Sour Tsunami features a robust THC content, reaching about 27%. The Sour Tsunami strain is also bred to contain boosted levels of CBG and CBD. The varied cannabinoid and terpene profile of Sour Tsunami ensures a versatile high.

Is Tsunami Strain a Sativa or Indica?

The Sour Tsunami strain falls into the category of a sativa-dominant hybrid strain. This is because although it inherits genetics from hybrid parents, their uplifting effects lean towards the sativa side.

The sativa-dominant lineage of Sour Tsunami originates from both of its legendary parents. One of its cultivars is the Sour Diesel strain, which is the result of crossing potent sativa hybrid Chemdawg and indica Super Skunk. Sour Tsunami's other parent, NYC Diesel, is a sativa-dominant hybrid with Mexican and Afghani landrace roots.

The cross-breeding of these predominantly sativa hybrid cultivars positions Sour Tsunami as an sativa-leaning hybrid, characterized by an uplifting, yet soothing array of effects.

Sour Tsunami Strain Effects

As a sativa-dominant hybrid with substantial CBD and CBG influence, the Sour Tsunami strain showcases energizing and anxiety-free effects stemming from its genetic configuration and potent terpene profile.

Individuals who have smoked Sour Tsunami flower (or used a Sour Tsunami vape) characterize this strain as both uplifting and soothing. Its effects offer strong pain relief potential and a happy sense of calm and well-being.

How strong is Sour Tsunami? Users say its potency is just right. While it does have a high THC content, it is tempered by its CBG and CBD components. Because both of these cannabinoids offer potential anxiety relief, Sour Tsunami gives you a well-rounded high without the anxious feelings that commonly accompany high-THC strains. This makes Sour Tsunami a good strain for beginners.

Consumers of the Sour Tsunami strain appreciate its comforting effects, which potentially soothe:

  • Chronic pain

  • Inflammation

  • Anxiety
