In the land of the Sativas, Sour Diesel is head and shoulders above its competition. That is, aside from its half brother: NYC Diesel. NYC Diesel is nearly a mirror image of Sour Diesel, but it’s in fact crossed with an Afghan Indica, giving it a slightly mellower high and a slightly darker tone.
Like Sour Diesel, NYC Diesel is a heart racer that has a Soury, unique, and unparalleled smell to it to match its high potency. When the real deal, it very well may cause an uptick in your heartbeat (like all good Sativas should) and some intense thoughts. Particularly the first 15 minutes after you puff on it. After that, it’s typically smooth sailing.
While I’m personally skeptical of most dispensaries carrying Diesels (based on what I’ve seen), NYC Diesel is currently on the shelves of 190 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries.
As always, make sure the strain meets its profile and isn’t a poorly handled version. And be wary of anything with Diesel attached to it on the West Coast, particularly if it’s on the cheaper scale and doesn’t have the look.
Each day, Marijuana.com will highlight a strain of Medical Marijuana. In an effort to show you that strains can vary much based on the environment they’re grown and what seeds are used. If you have smoked today’s strain of cannabis before, let us know what you think of it in the comments and if it looked like this.
