Sour Diesel is a hybrid strain of Cannabis sativa
American journalist Jeff Hobbs credited the strain’s development to his friend Robert Peace prior to Peace’s death in 2011. An alternative version attributes it to a New York City grower known as “AJ” during the mid-1990s.

Sour Diesel has appeared in works by Ryan David Jahn and Toby Rogers. The strain gave its name to two rap albums by Doap Nixon, as well as a single by Dame Grease. The Flatbush Zombies single “Face-Off”, a rap song about recreational drug use, also mentions Sour Diesel at the start of its second verse: “Perfect day, 10 bitches, and some sour diesel.” It is a favorite strain of rapper Wiz Khalifa. In season 3 episode 4 of the online TV show Broad City, Sour Diesel is featured as one of the cannabis-strains in possession of one of the two main characters.
