Sour Diesel and Girl Scout Cookies: Some of Maine’s Finest Cannabis

As marijuana culture grows, so does the number of new cannabis strains available for purchase. Every so often, one of these strains achieves legendary status because of its taste, look, strength, or all three. Listed below are two of these legends and how they came to be steady favorites of marijuana consumers everywhere.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is as iconic as it is potent. As the story goes, the strain was created by accident. A crop of Chemdog 91 was accidentally pollinated by a breed of Skunk (Northern Lights x RFK Skunk/Hawaiian or Massachusetts Super Skunk or an unknown plant), and the result was Sour Diesel. But it’s not its history that makes Sour Diesel still a popular choice among marijuana consumers; it’s the strain’s flavor, smell, and its effect that is responsible for its popularity. It produces a pungent aroma that evokes hints of gasoline or diesel fuel, but it may sometimes have sweet undertones. As far as potency, Sour Diesel can test at levels that range between 12 and 24% THC.

Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies hit the scene around 2011. It was bred by the Cookie Family, which is an underground association of marijuana breeders, and it was an instant hit. Its popularity could be due to the fact that it regularly produces THC levels over 20%. Its sweet and spicy smell and taste could also have something to do with it. The color is most certainly one of the reasons; it’s a deep purple with hues of orange throughout the flower. Cookies’ lineage is a bit hazy as some claim the strain to be a cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison, while others claim it to be the seed of Grandaddy Purple and Durban Poison. Regardless, it’s one of cannabis culture’s favorites.
