NYC Diesel is highly renowned for being an extremely potent strain of marijuana. It is a sativa-indica hybrid and, although the indica levels are slightly higher than the sativa, the flavour and buzz scream of the sativa component of this plant. This strain was so popular when it came out that it was the winner of a number of Cannabis Cup trophies in the early 2000s. Weed Seed Shop is proud to offer you a feminized seed variety of this strain, meaning all seeds grow into flowering females.
As the name suggests, this strain has its roots in New York City, where people first fell in love with it as the ultimate smoke for cannabis enthusiasts. NYC Diesel gets its genetics from a Sour Diesel clone and an Afghani/Hawaiian father. The high sativa content comes from the sativa heavy Sour Diesel, whereas her Afghani father is what gives the chilled indica vibe.
This strain hits powerfully when used with a very euphoric high to begin with and what turns into a wonderful body high afterwards. Both stages of the high are extremely strong, which makes it a popular strain to have in the stash among many smokers. It is a happy, talkative kind of high, which makes it great for social events. The taste is very distinctly citrus and the aroma is pungently lime and grapefruit. Some people can sense the distinct diesel flavour that NYC Diesel gets from its Sour Diesel parents.
In terms of growing, this plant gets quite tall, meaning it is not ideal for those who are growing in a smaller grow space. Its sativa qualities give the plant a sativa-like grow pattern, meaning it is tall and lanky. It grows best in warmer, sunnier outdoor climates. It doesn't have the shortest flowering time in our range of seeds, but is well worth it for the heavy yield. NYC Diesel requires 55-70 days for flowering time and, with a little bit of extra attention, you should be able to yield quite a large amount.
Overall, NYC Diesel is a good addition to an outdoor garden. It is potent and heavy yielding and is well worth the extra time and effort required to grow this strain.
