Genetic Background of Sour Tsunami: Bringing Legends Together
Created by crossing Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel with a local California strain, Lawrence Ringo, a renowned breeder from Humboldt Seed Co., is credited with bringing Sour Tsunami to life.
Given its status as one of the first viable CBD-rich hybrids on the commercial cannabis market, it’s no surprise Sour Tsunami has won several awards. Today, the strain continues to turn heads, as has inspired the creation of other popular hybrids.
Taste, Smell, and Effects of Sour Tsunami: Sour Citrus and CBD
Sour Tsunami’s flavour and aroma exhibit citrusy, diesel-like notes that make for a sour speciality indeed. But the strain also has an earthy note that grounds it and makes it enjoyable to smoke or vape.
As hinted at, Sour Tsunami contains high amounts of CBD, up to around 11%. Meanwhile, its THC content clocks in at anywhere from 1–10%. With a terpene profile composed primarily of myrcene, followed by terpinolene and pinene, Sour Tsunami’s phytochemical profile results in a clear-headed effect that is soothing and only mildly intoxicating.

For this reason, Sour Tsunami is often utilised by individuals seeking the benefits of cannabis without getting super stoned.
