About NYC Diesel Strain
NYC Diesel strain is a mostly Sativa hybrid that has won 9 different cannabis cup awards (though not every award has been for first place). The strain produces a citrus sweet, often described as red grapefruit, the flavor that is tinged with just a bit of diesel. Such a rare taste delivers a powerful high that most often energizes users and activates their minds. This activation usually comes coupled with uplifting feelings of euphoria and a burst of insightful creativity.
Accompanying these effects is a mildly numbing body stone that can cause some users, especially new users, to feel lazy and in need of a seat or sleep. NYC Diesel strain also comes with a powerful “munchies effect” and the common downsides of dry mouth and eyes, paranoia, headaches, and dizziness. Typically, this Sativa strain is used as a ‘wake and bake’ medication to start off many medical users’ day full of energy, but for some, it may need to be relegated to afternoon use as its high can be quite powerful.
As with many other cerebral highs, NYC Diesel strain is often chosen by patients seeking relief from stress, anxiety, and depression-related disorders. Even so, the strain’s bodily effects are strong enough that they may make mild to moderate chronic aches and pains more manageable. Finally, the powerful munchies effect is useful to those looking to increase their appetite and beat various eating disorders.
NYC Diesel strain comes from Soma Seeds and as the story goes Soma received these seeds from a friend in the Big Apple. The friend claimed that the stuff in the bag was the best he had ever had and since the guy had dreads down to the floor, Soma believed him and kept a couple. Reportedly the genetics for this strain is a cross between a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani. Capable of growing both indoors and out, this strain does best inside. Unfortunately many stray from trying to grow this strain as the flowering can take up to 85 days.
