About Diesel Duff
Diesel Duff is a powerful hybrid with a buzzy sativa energy. Although this strain is descended from the legendarily pungent Sour Diesel, it has more of a sweet flavor profile. Fans of Diesel Duff praise its long-lasting mental stimulation, which can be fun whether the strain is enjoyed in a solo or a social context. Its moderate THC content has been measured at between 12% and 17%.
Diesel Duff’s flowers are marked by a small to medium size and a chunky, irregular shape. These nuggets have a piecey, open structure that leans more sativa than indica, with ragged-looking leaves. The leaves themselves are a vivid spring green and are threaded through with curly orange and yellow hairs (which are actually botanical reproductive structures called pistils). Finally, a dusting of crystalline trichomes makes these flowers appear slightly dewy and makes them very sticky to the touch.
When properly cured, Diesel Duff’s flowers give off a clean and crisp floral aroma. A second inspection reveals some very sweet, almost rank and fermented scents as well. Grinding up the buds, meanwhile, gives off the unmistakable tang of skunk. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Diesel Duff burns with a very smooth smoke. This smoke tastes sweet and herbal on the exhale and can have some surprising notes of lavender.
Like many other predominantly sativa strains, Diesel Duff begins to flex its effects soon after it’s toked. Consumers may feel some initial twingy, head-focused sensations like a pulsing in the temples or some flushing in the cheeks. As the odd tics subside, though, they're replaced by an elevated mindset in which ideas may occur to the user more frequently or may take on a new kind of gravity. Some smokers may also find themselves grouping concepts into abstract categories or jumping from one topic to the next in free association. This sort of cerebral energy can be a fun way to add some excitement to otherwise mundane chores like doing a load of laundry. Diesel Duff may also offer users a jolt of energy, helping them find the motivation to go to the gym or to get a quick jog in.
These stimulating properties tend to persist as the high progresses, leaving smokers unburdened by a heavy body high. Instead, Diesel Duff’s upbeat, the goal-oriented mood is better spent on active pursuits like working on a creative project or going on a nature walk. Additionally, this bud’s tendency to speed up thoughts and lower inhibitions can make it a great tool for encouraging conversation and camaraderie in social settings. While its heady feeling of mindrace can prove overwhelming in an improperly relaxed set and setting, in an appropriate context, Diesel Duff can set the stage for anything from dancing to gaming to sitting around and contemplating the mysteries of the universe. Because it tends to keep its consumers more animated than subdued, Diesel Duff is a good choice for daytime (and even wake-and-bake) consumption.
Diesel Duff’s effects can also have several uses for medical cannabis patients. It early sense of mental focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to stay focused on a single task. The bud’s gentle feeling of euphoria can also help to temporarily take the edge off of some cases of stress or depression. On the physical end of the spectrum, Diesel Duff can help to soothe pain, whether it’s due to a chronic condition like lupus or is simply temporary, as due to injury. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may take the sting out of common afflictions like headaches. Because of its cerebral and potentially obsessive patterns of thinking, Diesel Duff is not a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Diesel Duff are not available for sale online, forcing perspective growers to seek out clippings from existing plants that can be propagated as clones. The hybrid can be grown indoors or outdoors in a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. While best practices for growing this specific strain are not widely available, the strain’s piecey buds suggest that its plants grow tall and wispy and may need some pruning early on. Diesel Duff’s plants flower within 9 to 10 weeks.
A great all-purpose strain for sativa fans, Diesel Duff is worth snatching up if spotted in dispensaries. Its dank and complex flavor is icing on the cake.
