Developed by Dinafem, Diesel is a cross between the sativa-dominant Mexican Sativa and the Afghani #1 strain.
With a lineage like this, its unsurprising Diesel has top-drawer sativa effects. That means a long-lasting cerebral high that can inspire creativity and without drowsiness. It’s a great for those situations when needing to ‘keep your head in the game’, thanks to its clean, invigorating powers. It’s equally great for social situations, when the sativa boost leaves consumers social and talkative – the perfect strain for parties or spending time with friends.
Diesel Terpene Profile
Like its parent strains, Diesel has a complex and nuanced flavor and aroma that most will enjoy. The scent is dominated by notes of citrus, pineapple and other fruits, with a characteristic diesel-oil undertone. Likewise, cannaisseurs can expect a fresh and fruity flavor, with many noticing juicy lemon and mandarin qualities, with a gasoline-like finish that’s surprisingly pleasant.
Medical Benefits Diesel
Ongoing research has suggested that THC could be responsible for the appetite-stimulating and energy-boosting effects of some strains. This moderate THC, low CBD strain may, therefore, be somewhat helpful for coping with fatigue or suppressed appetite although high THC strains are thought to be more effective. The moderate THC level of this strain could also provide some relief from mild aches, pains, and stress.
How to Grow Diesel
Diesel’s popularity is partly due to it being extremely easy to grow. Novices and experienced growers alike will have no trouble producing high yields, and its exceptionally fast flowering time means there isn’t long to wait before enjoying the first harvests. Its medium size makes it well-suited to indoor grow setups, but it will also do well outdoors – just make sure to use a greenhouse unless growing in a Mediterranean climate. Indoors, growers will want to use odor-controlling air filters, as the lemony-diesel scent can be deliciously overpowering. In under 8 weeks, Diesel should produce long, dense buds, coated in sticky resin.
