Taking 2nd place for Best Sativa at the 2012 High Times’ Cannabis Cup, the strain Sour Amnesia is a cross between the legendary Sour Diesel and Amnesia.
Often compared to a shot of espresso, Sour Amnesia’s onset of effects is potent, offering users an energetic and euphoric experience that makes everyday tasks seem like a happy adventure. Users enjoy its cerebral lift during social situations, making it a good pairing for a night out on the town or a dance floor. Some reviewers have experienced a spacey and sensory high, leaving them entranced with creative and inspirational thoughts for hours. As the blissful high of Sour Amnesia starts to settle in, users reported a pleasurable body buzz that leaves them calm, focused, and pain-free. While those suffering from pain, anxiety, and fatigue have found some relief when using this strain.
The buds of Sour Amnesia emit a loud and pungent earthy, citrusy, and petrol aroma accompanied by a sharp and citrusy diesel smoke that quickly turns sour. A light overtone of fresh earth and floral notes brings a light softness to its tart flavor.
This tall and generous yielding plant is easy to grow for novice cultivators and is estimated to produce about 16-17 ounces per square meter and can be grown in or outdoors. When properly cultivated and cured, Sour Amnesia produces light green resin-coated buds that are oblong in shape, vivid green with purple and pink hues, and coated in crystal trichomes that flake off when one starts to handle the buds.
Sour Amnesia is also referred to as Sour Amnesia Haze and THC percentage levels of this strain average in the mid-teens to low 20’s.
