Lifter is one of the most popular smokable hemp strains in the United States and Sour Lifter is its polarizing, slightly more adventurous cousin.
It has many of the same benefits and effects, but there are noticeable differences in the flavor profiles.
Sour Lifter Hemp Flower Review
Sour Lifter flowers are dense and feature a bright green color and a thin coating of trichomes. As soon as you break those buds apart, you’ll detect strong fruit aromas, an undercurrent of citrus, and notes of spice.
These flavors are provided by a unique terpene profile, the bulk of which is Myrcene. It also has high levels of the woody Pinene, the citrusy Limonene, and the spicy Caryophyllene.
As for the cannabinoids, Sour Lifter is all about CBD and contains around 16% of this cannabinoid on average.
Sour Lifter Aroma and Flavors
The pungent “sour” flavors come from the high levels of Pinene while the fruity and spicy notes are provided by Myrcene and Caryophyllene.
It lacks the mellow and citrus-heavy notes of the standard Lifter and is definitely better suited to users who prefer those strong skunky/cheesy flavors.
Benefits of Sour Lifter
The original Lifter is one of the best strains for daytime use and its name is often connected to these benefits. The actual origin of the Lifter name probably has nothing to do with its effects and is just a happy coincidence, but it really is uplifting and the same is true for Sour Lifter.
In fact, it may even give you more of an energy boost than you get with its predecessor and can be enjoyed throughout the day without worrying about couch lock.
Dose and sensitivity will come into it, and you may notice more sedating effects than the average user, but if you smoke your first batch on an evening, you can judge its effects and find your level.
