Stealing its name from buds that are purple and covered in a thick layer of crystals, the Sativa-dominant hybrid going under the name Purple Diesel often smells of fuel and lavender. With similar flavors that usually taste fruity at first and then of straight diesel, the strain is often known to induce an energetic body buzz that leaves users free to go about their day. Released for a very short amount of time by Bodhi Seeds, Purple Diesel is a cross between SR71 Purple Kush and an inbred line Sour Diesel.
Bodhi's version of Purple Diesel provides excellent daytime relief from chronic aches and pain. The uplifting effects can also help with stress, anxiety and depression. It may also be used to help with nausea and various eating disorders. The Bodhi Seeds version of Purple Diesel is extremely rare and hard to come by, which means very little information on growing it is available.
Many other strains have since taken up the name Purple Diesel, attempting to imitate the effects and beautiful bud of Bodhi Seed's strain. Some breeders change the name slightly like Next Generation Seed's NY Purple Diesel. However, others continue to release cuts, clones and seeds under the name Purple Diesel.
