NYC Diesel Strain
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
In 1990, NYC Diesel appeared when a man from New York City traveled to Southern California to purchase some high-grade cannabis. This hybrid strain is a cross of Mexican and Afghani landraces. The aroma of this strain is a combination of diesel, citrus, cloves, and marijuana. The taste follows suit and is reminiscent of spicy incense.
NYC Diesel provides a clear-headed high that starts with a cerebral rush and gradually moves to a full-body relaxation. This strain also has an uplifting, talkative nature that has made it popular for social activities and medical marijuana patients who struggle with anxiety, chronic pain, nausea, and stress-related conditions such as headaches or migraines.
The known side effects of NYC Diesel include dry mouth, dizziness, and a more sedative effect than its parent strains. THC levels for this strain often reach 18-20%, making it one of the most potent hybrids on the market. The buds are burnt orange and covered in amber-colored hairs with red pistils.
NYC Diesel is a hybrid strain that grows best in the indoor environment and is easy to grow. The plant grows tall and needs room to stretch. Outdoor planting is possible, but the plants will be more susceptible to frost. It should be planted in a well-fertilized soil mix and watered regularly with nutrient-rich fertilizer. The flowering period for this strain takes around 6 weeks.
