Full Report 📝


The downside of some deli style dispensaries is that they cannot provide details on the flower.


Amherst Sour Diesel

The terpene profile that I prefer to include with all reviews is unavailable for this strain. I actually inquired about this strain with several dispensaries and none of them could provide a terpene profile or any further details. I have suggested that this information be provided to consumers, so I will update as information becomes available.

Terpenes | Benefits & Effects | Aroma

--- | --- | --- Myrcene | Anti-Inflammatory, Pain-Relief, Antibiotic, Sedative | 🍊🍋 Caryophyllene | Anti-Inflammatory, Pain-Relief, Antioxidant, Relaxation | 🍂🌳 Limonene | Anti-Inflammatory, Gastric Reflux, Appetite Control | 🍋 a-Pinene | Anti-Inflammatory, Pain-Relief, Antibiotic | 🌲 b-Pinene | Anti-Depressant, Promotes Alertness | 🌲 Terpinolene | Antioxidant, Sedative, Anticancer, Antibacterial | 🍂🌹🍊 Ocimene | Decongestant, Antiviral, Antifungal, Antiseptic | 🌿 Linalool | Anti-Depressant, Anticonvulsant, Pain Relief, Sedative | 🍂🌹🌿



Quick onset and it hammers hard. Very heady and cerebral buzz at first, like a jolt to the brain. I felt relaxed but ready. The Sativa presence makes this strain great for morning/ afternoon and has a sweet smoke that makes it easy to enjoy any time of day.

After Combusting

Focused and alert. Didn’t find it to slow me down, rather energizing buzz. Generally, a small bowl for me sets the pace and I like that this strain delivers quick and really has great euphoric and uplifting effects. A happy and thought provoking experience. I really enjoyed creating music with this strain in the bowl.

Definitely helped my mood during a stressful week. Just tasting it is enough to make me smile.


This strain stands out in the 9 strains that I am sampling this week so I decided to share some of the characteristics that I like about the Amherst Sour Diesel strain.


First Impression

Beautiful buds and has a very distinctive scent that hits you as soon as the lid comes off. Frosty and nicely coated in resin, these buds are photogenic. Impressive looking flower that stands out in a mix - easily identifiable. Can you find it among other strains? 95717DD2-C563-4FD5-BD8B-F329D6184E42.jpeg

👅 Flavor & Smell 👃

🍋 + 🌲 + skunk + ⛽️ + 🌷

The Amherst Sour Diesel has such a wide spectrum of smell and taste.

I get hints of lemon, flowers, pine and subtle fruit tones. It’s hard for my nose and brain to interpret. Great tasting smoke and really tasty when vaped at low temps. I really am impressed with this bud - looks, smells, smokes like a dream. Very heady buzz that grabs you on the first exhale. Definitely got some of the skunky and chem flavors out of this when combusted.


This strain really reminds me of the GSC in so many ways. The coloration and hues of the bud, all the way to the complex and delicious taste of the flower. It really is a similar taste that I would expect of a top tier cannabis strain. Extraordinary, flavorful, and powerful.

Day or Night ☀️/🌙

Energized me during the day and the buzz sticks around for a long while.

In-Da-Couch Level 1 😴

Not a sedating strain of cannabis at all. Quite the opposite, I found. Worked great for my pain relief. I used it during the day I didn’t feel like in inhibited my daytime routine. Very heady and mind-soothing buzz that left me feeling productive.

🚨 Munch Alert ⚠️ Medium

A mild munch alert on this one. Did make me hungrier than usual during the morning and afternoon use.


Final Score:

She’s a keeper! I have been hunting for more already. Of the nine strains I am sampling this week, the Amherst Sour Diesel is one that really stands on its own. I really enjoy this strain during the day and don’t find it to leave me feeling burned out after a long day. It’s just what I want from a Sativa-heavy Hybrid.

🤯 ————————————————————— 🧠

Goes straight to the dome! Very cerebral jolt that lasts for a while. It didn’t lock me in the couch and I felt good! Overall, this one rocks because it is an all-day go-to strain if you prefer a Sativa-leaning hybrid that won’t wreck your motivation.
