Sour Apple Strain Information
Sour Apple is an 80/20 indica-sativa hybrid with a modest THC concentration of about 14%-17% and negligible CBD. Although both of its parent strains are energizing sativa-leaning hybrids, Sour Apple (like many a rebellious kiddo) leans more toward the opposite, indica end of the spectrum.
Initially, this strain delivers a slow-building, euphoric, and mildly energizing head high that’s motivating, creativity-inducing, and socially lubricating. But as its effects wear on, Sour Apple brings on a remarkably relaxing body high that will melt your tush to your couch and keep it there indefinitely.
