Sour Diesel is rumored to have come about by accident in 1991 when a grower fortuitously pollinated his Chemdog plants with Northern Lights and a Skunk strain. East Coast Sour Diesel is the most famous variety of strain. 

Swift lifts are mini pre-rolled joints from Verano. They come in a tin of five 0.5g pre-rolls, for a total of 2.5g of ground cannabis. 

Appearance 3/5
The mini pre-rolled joints are about 2.5” long, including a 1” cardboard filter. They are wrapped in a thin brown, slightly waxy paper. They come in a small black case about the size of a credit card that is good for carrying around this type of product. The loose cannabis is a uniform bright green, and it is ground finely. 

These pre-rolls were dented and didn’t feel like they were rolled tightly. The tip of one of them was torn halfway off. The pre-rolls were stuffed on top of each other in the tin, even though there is room for all five of them to be laid out evenly. 

Aroma 5/5
The aroma of this strain is sweet, soapy, and sour. The sweetness is floral, reminding me of petunias, or maybe a bubble bath, with a delicate floral soap. The aroma is not sour in the tart sense, like lemons or Sour Patch Kids. It is sour in a fermented way, like vinegar or sauerkraut. The aroma is complex, and I can smell a hint of mint. The funky and unique aroma is part of what makes this strain so special.

Taste 4/5
Even though this strain smells sour, the taste only has a hint of lemony tartness. The taste of this strain is otherwise one of the spiciest around. Along with the strong flavors of orange zest and black peppercorns, there are notes of spearmint and pine, and even a dash of crushed red pepper or cayenne. 

This strain has an extremely pleasant taste, but it does not taste as flavorful (or as fresh) as the flower Verano sells in eighths. 

Effect 5/5
The main effects of East Coast Sour Diesel are calmness and happiness. It is not as energizing as some other sativas, but in turn, it provides a soft, physical relaxation. When I was sitting, it made me feel physical still, but not tired. And when I was being active, this strain didn’t slow me down. It provided me with subtle mental energy. At 28.3% THC, it delivered a strong, long-lasting high, and is good for daytime pain management.

The Swift Lifts aren’t rolled very tight. I recommend untwisting the top and tamping down the product just a little before smoking it, so that it burns slower and more evenly. The cannabis is ground pretty finely, and has a fair amount of powdery trichomes, so I do not recommend unrolling this product. It is too fine to be used in an unfiltered joint, or in a bowl without a filter.

East Coast Sour Diesel is an impressive strain. While it isn’t as energizing or uplifting as some sativas, it is an impressive daytime pain-reliever


The pre-rolls are packed with flowers from Verano--a top-notch cultivator that grows popular strains. It doesn’t seem like the pre-rolls are packed with care, though. I think they pack the cannabis loosely to make the pre-rolls look fat, and fill up the container, not to smoke the best. Which is a tad unfortunate?

On my last trip to Sunnyside, everything went smoothly. I was able to place my order online at 9 am, and I was contacted to pick up my order at 10:42 am. I arrived a half-hour later and was able to walk right into the dispensary. When I came in, the first two people in the recreational line were walking into the dispensary. I walked to the second orange dot on the floor and waited to be admitted into the dispensary. 

Five medical patients came in while I was waiting. I have found that mornings are a busier time for medical patients, which means recreational customers should expect longer wait times in the mornings. Luckily, Sunnyside will be allowing recreational customers to submit online orders every hour on the hour until they reach capacity. They begin online ordering at 10 am. 

I ran into another glitch on the Sunnyside ordering platform, though. They keep track of each user’s past order in their user profile under “Order History”. This is a nice feature, but it doesn’t quite work how it is supposed to work. It has all of my online orders since they launched the platform on March 20th in a list. I can click on each one and view an itemized history of my order, along with tax and total. 

When items are no longer available on the menu, the name and image of each item disappear from the order history, but it still shows a blank itemized receipt with tax and total. But this is where I found the glitch. 

I noticed that there was an item on my order history from two visits ago that I didn’t remember purchasing, but all I could see was the item’s price. I had to wonder if I bought something that I forgot about, so I checked my bank statement, which reflected what I thought it should be. I didn’t think much about it until I looked at the order history for my most recent order, which was missing an item that was valued at the same price.
