The Black Diesel strain of marijuana is a phenotype of the NYC Diesel strain. It has been developed by Advanced Seeds. Don’t let the name of Black Diesel confuse you – sure, it has a diesel flavor but its sour citrus and grapefruit flavor and aroma is far more overwhelming than its diesel counterpart. Black Diesel has a THC content averaging around 19%. The Sativa strain has won multiple Cannabis Cups and happens to be quite infamous in the world of marijuana.
Despite being Sativa dominant, this strain offers a well-balanced high. You can experience a rush of Sativa effects on consuming it, but the effects on onset give way to a calm and relaxing Indica induced lull. Black Diesel can help you feel relaxed, focused and euphoric. It might help patients with anxiety, stress, and depression. Black Diesel can be grown equally well in both indoor and outdoor gardens, for those looking for information on cultivating this strain themselves.
