This amazing depiction of Sour Diesel came from Matt Leunig! Early on, Leunig’s artwork consisted mostly of screenprinted gigposters for touring bands and comic books but has since grown into all fields of illustration. His work has appeared in numerous publications, video games, music videos, art galleries, etc.
After a transient childhood overseas growing up in the Middle East, Leunig landed in the Bay Area and spent 10 years working in the video game industry and other jobs. Scraped Knee became a full time studio in 2010 & with the freedom of working from anywhere came the ability to uproot and travel whenever needed or wanted. After a brief 3 year stint in India, Atlanta & Washington DC the studio couldn’t help itself and had to return back to the Bay Area.
Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting, highly popular strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients. Being in a good mood is an effortless and natural feeling while experiencing Sour Diesel.
This strain took root in the early 90’s, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91, Northern Lights and Super Skunk. Sour Diesel is a tall, thin plant suitable for both indoor and outdoor gardens. Her foliage darkens to an almost purple color when in its final weeks of flowering. The buds commonly display pink to light orange hued pistils, and the formation is loose and spear shaped.
