THC: 18% – 21%, CBN: 1%
Sour Diesel meets an original Afghani or Hawaiian strain in this sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40 sativa/indica ratio). NYC Diesel carries strong sativa genes from its Sour Diesel mother, while the father plant was either indica- or sativa-dominant.
This strain is a good choice for busy days and social occasions, as it provides a peppy cerebral high with strong energy. THC levels can exceed 21%, making this a particularly potent medical option. CBD concentration, on the other hand, is very low, typical for a sativa.
The high comes with a strong shot of euphoria, a mood boost, and a spark of creativity. It’s most useful when treating anxiety, chronic pain, and depression.
It can also be an effective appetite stimulant. Negative effects are limited, especially paranoia, and that makes this an ideal choice for patients suffering from chronic anxiety.
A strong, pungent fuel flavor predominates in this Diesel descendant, along with additional chemical notes. NYC Diesel should be relatively easy to find in New York State, though it’s probably more popular on the West Coast, especially in California, Oregon, and Washington State. It is also sold in Nevada and Michigan.
Bred by Soma Sacred Seeds, NYC Diesel (or Soma Sour Diesel) is a 60% sativa-dominant cross between a Sour Diesel clone and an Afghani/Hawaiian male. This sativa-leaning strain provides strong cerebral effects that ease into a deep, full-body relaxation over time.
A pungent lime and grapefruit aroma is the mark of a high quality batch, like those that won this strain five Cannabis Cup trophies in the early 2000s. NYC Diesel’s happy, talkative qualities make this hybrid a good choice for social activities and many anxiety-prone consumers praise it for its paranoia-free effects.
