About this Hybrid Strain

The brilliant breeders at Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam wished to create a Diesel that not only tasted great with the same Sour Diesel potency, but would also deliver generous yields to cultivators. They chose the multiple time High Time Cannabis Cup Champion, NYC Diesel to be crossed with the great tasting and generous yielder, California Orange. The result is a delicious yet evenly balanced hybrid that has so many red hairs, they decided to name it Red Diesel.

Red Diesel is packed full of thick clumps of blood-orange pistils, accounting for over half of the surface area of the buds. The mint and lime green leaves are dense and caked with fuzzy white-trichomes, giving them a bright appearance.

This strain emits strong gasoline fumes, accompanied by pleasant hints of citrus and mint. Combusting this strain releases an earthy flavor packed with the sweetness of sugary-orange candy.

In typical Diesel fashion, this powerhouse reportedly delivers a cerebral euphoria like no other. With the pleasant orange citrus flavors lingering in the mouth, users state that Red Diesel makes your mouth want more, but the brain is saying “enough is enough.” The potency of the multiple award-winning parent strain, NYC Diesel has been passed on to this strain along with an incredibly fruity flavor. With the CBD and CBN values being at about 1%, this strain has earned rave reviews for medical users in helping to manage chronic pain and arthritis. The mentally stimulating quality reportedly has earned a following from medical users with ADHD as well. Red Diesel has built a cult following for purportedly being unmatched for focus and sustained energy along with a narcotic like body buzz that can help pain from becoming immobilizing.
