NYC Diesel is an award-winning sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that produces a potent, sweet citrusy flavor that many describe as similar to grapefruit with undertones of diesel. NYC Diesel is the seedling of three different strains.
It’s won nine different Cannabis Cup awards for its potent and delicious qualities, though not all were first place wins. Despite this, it’s a definite strain connoisseurs say they enjoy as it has become popular for its scent, flavor, and effects.
Its THC content averages at 15% and has been known to produce up to 22% in some crops. NYC Diesel’s high induces creativity, energizes the consumer, helps fabricate insight, and gives the body a slight numbing effect. For experienced users, the sativa dominance will help eliminate fatigue and is great for a “wake and bake”. For novice consumers, this strain may cause laziness or sleepiness once the cerebral effects wear off. It’s also known to boost appetite, so be ready for the munchies.
Negative side-effects include the usual cotton mouth and dry eyes, but paranoia and dizziness can become present if consumed inappropriately.
Growing time is longer than the norm, taking up to 10 weeks and normally flowering in early November.
