The Sour Hound Strain is a Sativa dominant Hybrid strain bred by Mephisto Genetics. This hybrid combines Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis to give a very balanced genetic pool. The Sour Hound Strain is a THC-dominant strain with high THC levels, from 18% to 20% THC with a negligible low CBD content of less than 1%.

For added complexity and potency, the Sour Hound Strain was bred from two strains. The excellent Sour Crack strain was crossed with the Chemdogging cannabis strain.

This crossing gave the Sour Hound Strain a premium stoned high, which might be overwhelming at first to new users. Therefore we advise starters to consume the Sour Hound Strain slowly and gradually. 

One of the easiest ways to accomplish the gradual consumption of cannabis is through the use of a vaporizer. Even better would be a vaporizer with the option to adjust the exact temperature settings. We would then start off with a relatively low temperature, between 175 to 185C, and finally finish off later at 210C. This gives you way more control over the consumption (and therefore saves you bud too). But more importantly, when vaporizing at low temperatures, you will also be able to enjoy much better the wonderful terpenes of the Sour Hound Strain.

The crossing of the Sour Crack strain with the Chemdogging cannabis strain perfected the complexity of the aroma and flavor inherent in this bud. The bouquet that the Sour Hound Strain delivers is delicious: typically Diesel, but enhanced with terpenes that have fresh Lemon and sweet Pine overtones accompanied with earthy undertones. The taste could be simply described as peppery and spicy, while slightly sweet at the same time.
