The Diesel strain is one that has lineage in so many different legendary strains. The best known strain is that of Sour Diesel which has an aroma of gas. Even slang has come from this lineage of strain as people tend to tell others they have gas weed if it is potent or very pungent. 

The smell of gas has become synonymous with weed in locations like Southern California where Sour Diesel grows very well. The following will help inform you on the Diesel marijuana strain and could convince you to try it in the future. 

Diesel Strain Genetics

Is Diesel strain an Indica or Sativa?

Diesel comes from NYC Diesel and is a 70/30 Sativa-dominant hybrid. Think of this strain as a great one to allow you to focus while giving you the energy to take on your agenda for the day. Keep a drink around as this can be a harsh strain on the throat if too large of a hit is taken. 

NYC Diesel comes from a Sour Diesel mother and can help energize. The strain tops out at 21 percent THC and can be a perfect candidate for those wake and bake fanatics. 

Diesel Weed Strain Yield

Diesel will thrive whether grown indoors or outdoors but can be a challenge. New growers should research any strain that intend on growing to make sure they can provide an ideal environment for the strains they select. The strains selected for outdoor grow projects need to thrive in your climate to ensure the yield and potency are acceptable. 

Outdoors a grower will be able to harvest up to 15 ounces per plant. Indoors the yield will depend on the space the plant is grown in but you can see an ounce per square foot. You should expect a flavor of a combination of citrus and diesel. 

Finding reliable seeds is always going to be the first order of business when you want to grow a specific strain. You don’t want to rely on social media seed sellers as they cannot legally mail you the seeds. Scams are quite common with seeds so it is best to opt for a seed breeding company that is widely trusted. 

Diesel Pot Strain Flowering Time

The flowering period of Diesel is going to last anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks. Keep flowering times in mind when planting outdoors as the longer flowering times will need to be planted a bit earlier in the growing season. 

Growing marijuana is about understanding the strain you are growing. Some just need water and light with very little maintenance otherwise. Other strains might require stress training or trimming in order to maximize the yield of a single plant. Find strains that align with how much work you would like to do this growing season. 

THC Content

The Diesel strain is going to have a range of THC in a large range of 12 to 21 percent THC. 12 percent THC can be a great level of potency for a beginner. As potency drifts into the 20s, this can be too potent for a person to start off smoking marijuana. 

Flavor And Aroma Of Diesel Weed

There is a harsh flavor of diesel and a dank note. The aroma is just of pungent diesel. The dominant terpenes in this strain are Sabinene, Limonene, and Ocimene. 

Sabinene can be spicy in flavor and provide relaxation to a consumer. Consumers also note this terpene can be great to treat an upset stomach. Famous strains with this terpene include Super Silver Haze and Cat Piss. 

Limonene has an essence and flavor of lemons. The terpene can help treat some symptoms of depression and anxiety. Two popular strains with this terpene are Ice Cream Cake and Zprite. 

Ocimene is a terpene that you should look for in marijuana if you are in a bad mood. You will also feel a wave of energy with this sweet-tasting terpene. Strains that contain Ocimene are Dolato and Gushers. 

Diesel Weed Seeds

Diesel weed seeds are widely available at seed banks across the internet. The unfortunate fact is that you cannot receive seeds legally in the mail even when living in a legal state as marijuana is still federally illegal. Seed banks might send these seeds but it is still illegal and should be avoided. 

Finding seeds or clippings of a healthy plant should not be too difficult in a state with legal recreational marijuana. Some states have recreational marijuana but restrict growing for medical patients. Others states do not allow any citizens without a license to grow marijuana at all. 

Price Of The Diesel Weed Strain

You can expect to pay $6 to $8 per gram. 1/8th of an ounce will be around $30. The full ounce will help you save the most money and can cost as little as $160. 

Medical Conditions This Strain Can Help

The medical community has come around to embracing cannabis as a form of medicine. Studies have been done that show a variety of health benefits of taking compounds like CBD for certain individuals. Diesel can help ease the symptoms of the following medical conditions: 

  • Anxiety
  • Mild Depression Symptoms
  • ADHD
  • Eye Pressure
  • Headaches
  • Inflammation 

The CBD content does not make this the best strain for treating medical conditions. The CBD content is a maximum of 1 percent so supplementation of CBD might be required. Sensitivity to cannabinoids differs by the individual as a dose of CBD might differ drastically between people.
