For the past twenty years, New York City Diesel has been regarded as one of the greatest all-around strains for cannabis enthusiasts looking for an incredible tasting and piercingly potent plant. Soma Seeds started developing this legendary strain in the late 1990s and by the 2000’s it was winning major awards and garnering the attention of Cannabis lovers around the globe. Soma was always known to be a top-notch breeder but it was the NYC Diesel that stood out among the rest of his strains. NYC Diesel is the hybrid of a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani landrace indica. Soma claims that he got these genetics on the east coast of the United States from a very trusty source who also happened to have ultra-long dreadlocks. Other names were given to this strain but after the terror attack in New York City during September of 2001, Soma renamed the strain NYC Diesel to reflect his love of the great city and its people. Not to be confused with Sour Diesel, NYC aka Soma Diesel has one of the most unique and distinctive aromas of any cannabis plant around. The aroma and taste are like a spicy tropical grapefruit and once you try it, no others will come close in comparison.
The smell alone is enough to make you fall in love with this strain but NYC Diesel also has a brilliant uplifting high that will make you smile ear to ear and have you laughing in utter bliss. The buzz comes on very smooth and clean and lasts for several hours. NYC Diesel has a high ceiling, meaning that you still feel the effects even after having already smoked earlier in the day. The THC content is averaging 18-21% and the CBD is .20. This is a mostly sativa hybrid, 60% sativa to 40% indica and the high delivers a strong sense of well-being, peace and relaxation. NYC Diesel is a perfect daytime strain for productive and creative types. Also because of the uplifting and hunger inspiring high, this strain is a favorite of medical users who experience depression and appetite loss.
From seed, NYC Diesel is very stable and uniform in growth. The plant thrives in warmer environments with plenty of ventilation. NYC Diesel can get rather tall and it produces some monstrous colas with giant super resinous calyxes. This is a very powerful smelling strain both while growing and as finished buds so, make sure to have adequate air filtration if you want to avoid exposure. Normal flowering time is 10-12 weeks indoors and will finish in late October to early November outdoors. The buds are not too leafy making this an easy and fast strain to trim. The hash made from the trimmings of NYC Diesel is some of the finest you will ever taste. Indoor yields are 14oz/m2 inside and 12+oz per plant when grown outside. The buds are forest green with ruby-colored hairs, very fluffy and extremely aromatic. Stop playing make-believe with the other diesel hybrids on the market and give this remarkable NYC Diesel super strain a try.
