What is NYC Diesel?

NYC Diesel Strain

Bred by the wonderful Soma Sacred Seeds, NYC diesel is brought to us all the way from the Big Apple! This tasty sativa-dominant strain packs a host of medicinal properties and provides one kick-ass wake and bake high that any cannabis lover will adore.

What do you get when you combine the legend that is Sour Diesel with Mexican and Afghani landraces? You get a nine time Cannabis Cup winner that not only boasts a powerful high but can also help provide relief for a host of medical conditions.

Rumor has it that Soma Seeds were approached by a friend in the Big Apple, claiming that these seeds were the very best he had tried. Intrigued by the bold claims, Soma Seeds kept a couple and, low and behold, they weren’t wrong!

Like any excellent sativa bud, NYC Diesel offers an effective boost of energy, focus and overall positivity that can serve as an excellent strain for getting things done as well as combating a range of mental health-related conditions.

With a THC level between 15-20%, this is a pretty powerful contender and should be approached with care for those who are new to the industry!

NYC Diesel Flavor, Aroma, Appearance


It’s all about the citrus with NYC Diesel, as the plant boasts a pungent array of spicy and zesty notes that will undoubtedly fill any space within minutes. Aside from the punchy smell, NYC Diesel is also a show-stopping bud for its looks with its vibrant hues; this is well indeed the peacock strain of the marijuana world.

Enter the room with a good bag of NYC Diesel, and you will be hit with a strong chemical smell, underlined with a sharp citrus note that lingers for a while after smoking. Upon lighting your bud, you will pick up on delicious hints of lime and grapefruit which fill the air and make it a real sensory treat.

NYC Diesel has a wonderful appearance, with many buds containing hues of purple, blue and yellow, all in one! The olive green flowers are usually coated in a vibrant orange trichome which makes for a beautiful crystal coating of stickiness.

Upon inhalation, users report a hit of sweet citrus mixed with a discreet diesel taste, and upon exhaling, you can expect notes of grapefruit, pine and a subtle spice – this is a seriously moreish taste!

NYC Diesel Grow Info

NYC Diesel can be grown both indoors and out, but the requirements needed for successful outdoor cultivation are pretty hard to come by, so indoor growing is usually recommended. For those who do wish to try their hand at outdoor cultivating, NYC Diesel requires a dry and warm fall climate to get the best results.

Indoor growers can benefit from a 9-11 week flowering time and a pretty high yield for your efforts! This isn’t the easiest plant to grow and maintain, so we would say growers with no experience may want to steer clear of this bud for now.
