What do you get when you cross two of the strongest-kicking strains out there? That’s right, an incredibly potent cross child that is bound to get anyone craving for it.

Among the most impressive weed combos known to cannabis enthusiasts is an extremely rare sativa-dominant hybrid known to be one of the best choices for a good ol’ wake n’ bake: the Ultra Sour strain. If you are looking for a smoke that will get you all fired up for the day, then look no further than this potent strain.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through all the good stuff that this heavy-hitter has to brag about and introduce you to some of the best Ultra Sour products today.


The Ultra Sour strain is the result of the marriage of the MK Ultra and East Coast Sour Diesel strains. Both parent strains are hybrids, where MK Ultra is 70/30 indica-dominant, while ECSD is 70/30 sativa-dominant.

The cerebral effects that MK Ultra is best known for go so well with the body high that one gets from ECSD. The Ultra Sour strain got the best of these two and promises smokers a speedy yet long-lasting burst of creative energy.

Ultra Sour’s THC content consistently clocks in at the bottom 20s (never below), so veteran and novice smokers alike should brace themselves for an ultra-potent high that will keep them blissfully alert for hours on end!


Ultra Sour buds are many things, but if we were to pick one word to best describe them, it would be ‘massive’. Ultra Sour nugs are huge and fluffy and are a vibrant green with prominent hints of blue and peppered with vibrant orange hairs all over. They are made complete by a lacy coating of dust-like amber crystal trichomes that house all those beautiful THC compounds and terpenes.

Fragrance and Flavor

Speaking of terpenes, let’s look at the taste and smell of the mighty Ultra Sour strain.

With its Sour Diesel roots coming through, Ultra Sour carries a scent reminiscent of spicy diesel and pine that is then made whole with a tangy, citrus flavor. All that makes for a sour and spicy experience like no other—and it hasn’t even been the main event!

Effects and Benefits

Of course, all that sweet talk would mean nothing if the actual effects and benefits of Ultra Sour are mediocre at best. Fortunately for those of you who are getting excited, this strong hybrid doesn’t disappoint.

The Ultra Sour strain has a myriad of heady effects that range from euphoric relaxation to full on energizing. This seemingly stark contrast may seem strange at first glance but it’s ultimately explainable by the fact that although Ultra Sour leans more towards sativa characteristics, it still strikes a relatively good balance.

These cerebral effects waste no time getting the work done, taking smokers on a steep high almost right after a puff or two. While Ultra Sour can give you a clear head to make way for the day’s activities, it also gives your brain a certain surge of creative energy and mental jog that will make you productive throughout the day. It keeps you focused, too, so if you start your day with this strain, then you’re in for an inspired temperament for hours with welcome bouts of indica-induced relaxation from time to time.

This is where we must warn you that planning to have some Ultra Sour requires that you keep the snacks ready. This hybrid is known to cause intense munchies so make sure those goodies are within reach if you don’t want interruptions in an otherwise enjoyable high.

Ultra Sour’s parent strain, MK Ultra, is medicinal and as a result, Ultra Sour, too, has medicinal benefits that are quite significant. Aside from the fact that it helps with appetite loss, it has also been reported to provide relief from other conditions such as fatigue, depression, and stress, and physical ailments like migraine and nausea. Though it is not so much recommended for patients or general users who suffer from anxiety because of its heavy effects on the mind.

As with all marijuana strains and products, users must practice caution and careful research to get the most out of the experience!
