1. Breeding History
1.1 Where does Diesel cannabis come from?
A popular cannabis strain in the United States, Diesel has many incarnations including Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel. The cannabis seed strain sold by Growers Choice traces its ancestry to a blend of Sour Diesel and pure Afghani indica. The presence of the latter gives this sativa-dominant strain a delayed superpower: a deep relaxation that can ease away stress and pain.
The origin of Diesel’s sativa heritage is largely unknown, though some sources do agree it likely has some Chemdawg in its past, possibly combined with Northern Lights or a Skunk cannabis variety. Though its name does, as you might imagine, come from its fuel-like smell (with notes of lemon or orange), Diesel strains are wildly popular for their uplifting, energizing effect.
1.2 Is Diesel weed a sativa?
The Sour Diesel ancestry of our Diesel weed seeds give this strain its energizing sativa properties. Though a bit of Afghani offers a nice balance – a ratio of 70% Sativa, 30% Indica – the primary effects of this potent strain leave no doubt Diesel is a sativa-dominant variety.
2. Physical Appearance
2.1 What does a Diesel pot plant look like?
The medium-height Diesel pot plant is usually bright green in color, with only a moderate coating of resin that is mostly restrained to the buds and does not spread to the sugar leaves as much as strains with stronger indica roots. That said, the trichomes coat the inside of the buds, as well. Late in development, you’ll likely see round, average-sized flowers and dense leaf cover.
3.1 How To Grow Diesel
Under the right conditions, you can expect your Diesel cannabis seeds to thrive both indoors and out. Given that the ideal temperature is about 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, outdoor growing works best in climates similar to the Mediterranean, and definitely during the warm summer months.
Indoors, Diesel cannabis seeds can be cultivated year-round. Due to their strong sativa influence, the plants tend to grow quite tall, much of this growth being seen during the flowering stage; don’t expect a dense, bushy plant with closely packed flowers, but rather well-spaced branches and nodes.
The flowering stage of this strain falls somewhere between fast-flowering options and long-growth types like American Haze and Critical Purple. You’re looking at a flowering time of 65 to 70 days (around 10 weeks), following a few weeks in the vegetative stage.
3.2 Grow Your Own Diesel Cannabis Plant
With cannabis seeds from Growers Choice, it’s easy to grow your own vibrant, healing Diesel cannabis plants. All our seeds were tended on our partner farms, by experienced horticulturalists who have spent more than two decades in the field. Once we receive the cannabis seeds, we examine them and select them by hand to choose the most viable ones. (Of course, you can’t tell whether a seed will sprout just by looking at it, but we avoid sending our customers cracked or shriveled seeds.)
We also offer an outstanding 90% germination guarantee, here at Growers Choice. We want you to feel secure in your cannabis seed investment, and there’s nothing more disappointing than a shipment of less-than-stellar seeds. That’s why, as long as you use our tried-and-true Water Glass and Paper Towel germination method, we will replace any seeds that fall short of our promised germination rate.
3.3 How much bud will I get from a Diesel cannabis plant?
You’ll find Diesel delivers a moderate yield, in the form of round, mid-sized buds with a slight resinous coating. From Growers Choice Diesel cannabis seeds, you can expect to harvest up to 550 grams per square meter indoors, and as much as 600 g per plant, en plein air.
4. Flavor and Effect
4.1 What Does Diesel Taste Like?
As the name implies, Diesel has a distinctly gasoline-like scent and, while this may sound unappealing, this unique aroma is very popular. Underlying the fuel smell, you may notice hints of lemon or orange, as well as an earthy, pine scent once the dried and cured flowers have been ground.
Prepare for a rather sour and ammonia-esque flavor. Diesel is not a good choice for close quarters wherein you want to keep your smoking private; in such instances, we’d recommend choosing a different, more subtle method of consumption, such as an edible or tincture!
4.2 Diesel Marijuana Effects
Diesel is most certainly a marijuana strain best saved for daytime use, as you are unlikely to feel like hitting the hay for some time after ingestion. Our Diesel cannabis seeds can deliver all-natural medicine that invokes strong focus and creativity in the midst of a heady mental rush.
Though Diesel has a moderate THC level of about 17%, the strength of its effects can prove too much for new users or those unaccustomed to this type of high. As such, and as with any new strain, start slow and see how a single, small dose affects you before diving in full force. Expect a suitable dose to last as long as two or three hours!
Primary Effects of Diesel
4.3 Diesel Cannabis for Medical Symptoms
Though its strange flavor might leave some wondering why Diesel is such a popular strain, the medicinal effects should remove that confusion. Diesel’s euphoric sensation can counteract depression and ease stress and anxiety, while relieving fatigue. Following the energizing sativa-driven high, Diesel can fade into a relaxing body effect that soothes pain and headaches. The strain can also lessen nausea and encourage appetite in patients dealing with eating disorders and chemotherapy.
