About NYC Diesel

NYC Diesel 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, 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 are a mildly numbing body stone that can cause some users, especially new users, to feel more lazy and in need of a seat or sleep. NYC Diesel 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 ‘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 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 comes from Soma Seeds and as the story goes Soma received these seed 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 are 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.

The last time I had this was in the late 90s. Still the best weed I ever smoked. Hard to find.

I smoked this around 2008 & was blown away. Best weed I ever smoked. The high reminded me of my first time smoking: psychedelic, giggly & uplifting with lots of good vibes. I'm stoked to be growing an autoflower version right now & hope it lives up to the real thing.

NYC Diesel is fire!!! MHS IN Durango has 23.4% THC NYC Diesel grown and cured to perfection. The cure is delicious. Very citrusy and a little bit of the "fire" fuel taste indicative of strong cannabis. Definitely a stash ( top ten strains) weed for sure. Great sativa heady soring uplifting effects.
