Trulieve released their version of cannabis crumble – TruCRMBL – on 02.15.2019. My preferred strains for my “main” line of medication are almost always sativa; the sativa strains currently available in Trulieve’s crumble are Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, and Super Silver Haze. Sour Diesel has been a longtime classic strain, a staple of the cannabis industry, and long used as a label for many a generic strain that your black market dealer happened to have at the time.
True Sour Diesel is a long acclaimed sativa that is known to obliterate depression, and provide enough energy and motivation to power through almost any task. I found these effects to be consistent with my experience when I tried the flower form of Sour Diesel (review here), and was interested to see if I would have a similar positive experience with the crumble.
Sour Diesel (Sativa)
Lineage: Chemdawg 91 x Super Skunk – I find it interesting that one hybrid and one indica parent yielded a sativa. The science of cannabis is fascinating!
Batch/Harvest Number: PR190219H
813.0 mg THC/1g
0.0 mg CBD/1g
83.8% Total Cannabinoids
As one Reddit user on the Florida Medical Trees subreddit put it: “TruCRMBL looks exactly as it’s supposed to.” The crumble itself is very “pure” looking and is a very nice waxy consistency that is very easy to work with using any type of dabbing tool. The crumble I got was as pictured above. I noticed with this particular batch that the cannabinoid crystals are very visible and sparkly, especially when held under a flashlight. If you have any crumble, I recommend doing just that (holding it under a flashlight); it looks spectacular. This gram weighed out to 1.0g. Overall, I think Trulieve did a fantastic job processing this batch. It looks great, and it’s a nice consistency.
Appearance Rating: 4.60/5.00
Sour Diesel crumble has an absolutely amazing smell and taste – I cannot put the jar down if I’m around it, because I have to keep smelling it. Seriously. There is this very pungent/sharp citrus smell, with an equally/pungent smell that does in fact smell very similar to something between gasoline and diesel fuel. It smells very “clean” and fresh. The taste is similar to the smell, if not a bit more on the citrus side vs. diesel. Compared to the flower, the Sour Diesel crumble seems to have an even more sharp/pungent smell, and also a bit more sweetness to it.
Smell/Taste Rating: 4.40/5.00
Sour Diesel is a very racy sativa in flower form, and it holds true for the crumble as well. I recommend that any patient looking to try this strain have at least some experience with sativa, or you may find yourself dealing with a bit of sativa-induced anxiety. Sour Diesel is very motivational and energetic, and it can get the heart pumping. I do find that my heart seems to beat a little bit harder/faster after medicating with this strain; however, I have over a decade of experience with cannabis, so it doesn’t really bother me.
If you’re a patient who is experienced with sativa strains, you will find Sour Diesel to have classic sativa effects, and great for morning/daytime medication. Need to clean your house, beat a deadline, exercise, or basically do anything that you might otherwise procrastinate? Sour Diesel will help you soar through that task. For me, it works pretty well for depression, though I have found other sativas that do that job better – like Colombian Gold. Sour Diesel is definitely one of the best sativa strains I’ve found for energy and motivation, whether consumed in flower or concentrate form.
Possibly good for treating:
- Depression and related anxiety
- ADD/ADHD or focus-related issues
- Lack of motivation
- Improves concentration and memory recall
- Increases energy/alertness, in a way almost similar to caffeine
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Effects Rating: 4.50/5.00
Overall Rating: 4.50/5.00
Overall, I would best describe Sour Diesel as an “excellent” strain.
TruCRMBL really impressed me. In the past, I have always been more partial to flower; however, after trying this crumble and Trulieve’s Super Silver Haze crumble, I will definitely be keeping more strains around as a sort of “extra strength medication”, if you will. I’d highly recommend for each patient to try at least 1 gram of their favorite strain to compare the relief to other forms of cannabis medication. This is a very high quality product in my opinion. Is it the best thing ever? That’s entirely a matter of personal preference, but I think it’s definitely worth at least a “test run” from anyone.
