About West Coast Diesel

West Coast Diesel is one the more recent California-grown Sativa hybrids that packs a punch. Its parentage is unclear, although it may have roots in Skunk #1 or its various crosses. Sometimes referred to as Kerosene Kush, this is an especially pungent variety that’s also notable for its 22-26% THC content.

West Coast Diesel buds are typically dark green, with threaded hairs that lean more brown than orange. Mature buds have a hardness and a density that become more prominent when cured. Trichome production is high, with sticky crystals coating the surface. The trademark gasoline smell of this strain takes center stage, with some sharp, lingering chemical notes. Not a subtle or nuanced hybrid by any means, West Coast Diesel also has a powerfully skunky diesel taste and acrid smoke that hits the back of your palate. 

This strain is thought to have primarily sativa genetics and as such, its effects are stimulating and cerebral. With its high THC content, West Coast Diesel will have you buzzing before you’ve finished coughing. An energetic, uplifting high comes on quickly with little to no body-stone. Increased focus and clarity may help in the treatment of attention deficit disorders. Newcomers should be wary off the potential for paranoia, as the potent high can turn into introspective anxiety. West Coast Diesel is recommended for recreational daytime use. 

Like most sativas, West Coast Diesel can grow very tall and thrive outdoors under the right conditions. Because of its height, indoor growing can be a challenge. Indoor growers may also want to invest in odor control because of the strain’s extremely skunky smell. The plant has a heavy yield of colas - so whether growing inside or outside, bamboo poles or other sturdy supports can stop overburdened branches from breaking or sagging. Flowering can take 65 to 75 days in an indoor environment and up to 15 weeks outdoors.

West Coast Diesel is a great example of what can happen when breeders focus on enhancing a set of similar characteristics, rather than crossing varieties for new combinations. In this case, the valuable result is a concentrated diesel flavor and a sativa high that packs a punch.
