Sour Lifter Hemp Flower

A close up of Sour Lifter Hemp Flower from Sunset Lake CBD

A refreshing twist on the classic Lifter hemp flower strain, Sour Lifter is one of the newest offerings from the geneticists over at Oregon CBD Seeds. This year’s Sour Lifter buds are chunky, crown-to-stem covered in orange hairs, and glittering trichomes.

Sour Lifter is the only sour variant cultivar returning to this year’s smokable flower lineup— we just loved it so much! The cheesy aromas mingled with zesty citrus notes make this flower smell like a tangy charcuterie board.

With a higher terpene content than its counterpart, Lifter, Sour Lifter is a great choice who want to start their day with a solid hemp flower with a little twist. Novices should be wary of the creep though. Too many morning puffs and you may end up boosting yourself right into a recliner.

Sour Lifter Genetics

Suver Haze 50 x Gorilla Glue #4 CBD conversion | Oregon CBD Seeds

Like many high-yielding hemp flower strains, Sour Lifter hemp flower can trace its lineage back to cannabis strains. Over time, geneticists bred the THC out of the parent cultivars and encouraged CBD production. This technique created large, high-CBD buds that look, smell, and smoke like traditional cannabis.

What Strain is Sour Lifter?

The origin of Sour Lifter’s genetics started where else Oregon CBD Seeds. Sour Lifter actually shares a parent with traditional Lifter. Instead of crossing with Early Resin Berry, Oregon crossed Suver Haze #50 with a CBD-dominant strain of Gorilla Glue #4 (a.k.a. Original Glue) to give this bud its powerful aroma.

Is Sour Lifter an Indica or Sativa?

Despite being crossed with the couch-locked-hybrid that is Gorilla Glue #4 (CBD conversion), Sour Lifter is a Sativa-dominant hemp flower cross. This bud does creep a bit though. Too many puffs and your morning mood-boosting Sour Lifter session may just turn into an extended hangout.

Does Sour Lifter Get You High?

Smoking Sunset Lake CBD’s Sour Lifter hemp flower will not make you feel high or intoxicated.

To be considered hemp flower and not marijuana, smokable hemp must contain less than 0.3% d9-THC by dry weight. Instead of feeling high, as you would with traditional marijuana, you might feel much more relaxed or chilled when you smoke Sour Lifter.

What Does Sour Lifter Smell Like

Sour Lifter has a powerful jar aroma. A cured bud will smell of acidic citrus— think sour limes and tangerines. Some users will notice some very subtle notes of blue cheese and gassy diesel fuel under all that citrus.

Smoking or vaping Sour Lifter will differentiate the two sides of this complex bud. Expect that sweet-and-sour citrus on each inhale, and a very pleasant diesel exhale.

Sour Lifter Terpene Profile

Sour Lifter is a terpinolene-dominant cultivar, accounting for more than a quarter of Sour Lifter’s 2.5% total terpene weight. The second and third most common terpenes in this year’s testing sample are beta-caryophyllene and myrcene, respectively.

It’s quite rare to find strains that are terpinolene-dominant. The terpene is itself named after turpentine and is aromatically complex; many find terpinolene to have piney, floral, herbaceous, and citrus notes. Above all, terpinolene is usually described as having a distinctly “fresh” aroma.

Beta-caryophyllene is an interesting terpene as it’s the only terpene to also interact with your endocannabinoid system and provide anti-inflammatory effects. This terpene helps add a bit of spice to Sour Lifter’s profile as it’s also found in black pepper and cinnamon.

When myrcene is taken with CBD, it’s thought to contribute to the “couch lock” effect, leading many to believe that myrcene may have some sedative effects. Myrcene is also commonly found in mangos and thyme.

Growing Information

We germinated our Sour Lifter hemp flower in our greenhouses up in Vermont’s Champlain Islands. Once they were big enough to transplant, we moved the seedlings to the southernmost section of our fields, next to our Lifter flower.

We did not use any pesticides at any point during germination, growing, flowering or harvesting. Instead, with guidance from the University of Vermont extension school, we used an integrated pest management system and employed the use of Trichogramma parasitic wasps, assassin bugs, and ladybugs to control unwanted pests. We only used organic fertilizer that we secured from our main farm in Alburgh, Vermont.
