Appearance-wise, a California Sour plant is short and bushy with strong lateral branches. Its buds are indica in structure, and its flowers are chunky and heavily coated in a layer of sticky, white, tacky flowers.
California Sour is distinguished by medium-sized flowers that adhere in chunky, irregular shapes. The buds have an indica-looking structure, with relatively small leaves that twist tightly inward toward their central stems. These leaves are a dark forest green and are twisted through with contrasting brown and orange pistils. A carpet of icy, translucent trichomes covers the flowers, making them very sticky to the touch.
Described as offensive and off-putting by some, California Sour has a bold flavor that mixes top notes of gasoline with some fruity accents. Taking a deeper whiff of the flowers may also pick up on a sour odor, similar to fermented vegetable matter. Grinding up or breaking apart the flower yields a deep peppery scent that’s so characteristic of parent strain Afghani.

California Sour is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the super tangy Lemon Diesel X Sour Lemon Diesel strains. Not to be confused with its sister strain, “California Sour Diesel,” this bud is an incredibly rare find that is a favorite of sativa lovers everywhere. The flavor of California Sour is exactly how it sounds – super sour and tangy lemon with a tinge of diesel upon exhale. The aroma is surprisingly very skunky and pungent with an overtone of tangy lemon and diesel that is released as the flowers are broken apart. This bud has oversized fluffy light minty green flowers with pale almost white leaves, a spattering of fiery orange hairs, and a super thick frosty coating of tiny milky white crystal aesthetics.
