Sour Diesel Auto Feminized Seeds (Herbies Seeds)


Sour Diesel Auto Strain Info

Sour Diesel Auto is the autoflowering feminized version of Sour Diesel – a popular Sativa strain that has gained quite a following for its pungent aroma. Sharp and tangy, you’ll be able to smell this weed from miles away.

With a classic Sativa head high, Sour Diesel Auto’s effects are dreamy, fast-acting, and uplifting. This Sativa-dominant herb offers a boost of cerebral energy and is a great wake-and-bake strain to start the day on the right foot.


Sour Diesel Auto’s family tree includes popular strains like Northern Lights, Sour Diesel, and Super Skunk, plus just a bit of Ruderalis genetics that gives the plant its autoflowering ability. Northern Lights needs no introduction; this legendary strain changed the cannabis industry when it first hit the shelves in the ‘80s. 

Sour Diesel, aka Sour D, has a somewhat murky genetic lineage. However, what makes us want to try it even more is that it descended from two highly potent strains – Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk. The latter is a slightly Sativa-dominant hybrid made by crossing Afghani and Skunk #1. All of this makes Sour Diesel Auto work a try as it combines great history of the past and extremely high THC levels courtesy of modern genetics.

Flowering Time

Due to its Sativa influence, this strain takes 82-87 days to grow from seed to harvest – quite a long time but its powerful effects are definitely worth the wait.


Sour Diesel Auto will provide you with a nice indoor harvest of 300-450 g/m² (1-1.5 oz/ft²). Outdoors, it will reward your wait with up to 550 g (19.4 oz) per plant.


The effects start with an invigorating head rush, which promotes creativity and makes you really want to get up and go on adventures. Due to its mood-elevating, brain-electrifying ability, Sour Diesel Auto can be recommended to those suffering from anxiety and depression. Some users say it helps them combat fatigue and get the appetite moving.


THC Levels

Sour Diesel Auto has a potent THC content well above most other Sativa strains, cruising in the 22-25% range.

Smell and Taste

Speaking of aromas, Sour Diesel Auto is notorious for its pungent, diesel-like scent. The taste can be described as earth, spicy, and gassy – this is definitely a smoke to remember!


Grow Tips

Despite its Sativa genetics, Sour Diesel Auto has a relatively medium stature. Indoors, it reaches from 70 to 120 cm (2’3-3’9) in height, while outdoor crops grow 90-170 cm (3-5’6) tall. This strain is good for beginners and doesn’t require any special maintenance.

  • Sour Diesel Auto works well in a Sea of Green (SOG) environment.
  • It requires heavy feeding all the way through the flowering cycle – in particular, big amounts of nitrogen during veg, but also phosphorus and potassium during flowering.

      To start, I appreciate the affordability of these seeds, making it accessible to more growers. The distinct diesel strain characteristics are a standout feature for me.
