Top 3 Diesel strains

Diesel strains are a popular choice among tokers and cultivators alike. The unique gas-infused aroma is a sign of their potent effects. Boasting impressive yields and euphoric highs, they’re a must have for all 420 enthusiasts.

Let’s take a look at the top three diesel strains below.

Sour Diesel

The ever popular Sour Diesel packs a potent punch and boasts aromas that thrill your olfactory senses.

Originating out of the West Coast, this Diesel variant is a combination of Chemdawg and Super Skunk. These genetics result in its intensity and unique diesel-like aromas.

The herb is sativa-heavy, boasting an impressive 19–25% THC level that can even reach 30% in optimal conditions. Packed with terpenes such as limonene, pinene, and myrcene, the strain lives up to its name.

Impressive yields of 18 oz./m² indoors and 25 oz./plant outdoors make this plant a favorite among cultivators.

Skunk Diesel

The result of crossing Skunk and NYC Diesel, the Skunk Diesel strain is a hard-hitting indica-dominant legend.

With potent aromas and long-lasting highs, this cannabis cultivar is enjoyed by many. It offers a 16–18% THC level with a flowering time of 8–10 weeks.

Skunk Diesel is suitable for novice growers, producing yields of around 16–18 oz./m² indoors and18 oz./plant outdoors.

NYC Diesel

These feminized seeds grow into large, hardy, sativa-dominant plants. The herb’s impressive lineage comes from Hawaiian, Afghani, and Sour Diesel.

NYC Diesel genetics leave tokers feeling pure euphoria and boast unique, tantalizing aromas, courtesy of the latter parent. With an average of 19% THC, the effects are fast-acting and intense.

The plants reach their full potential outdoors and fare best with experienced cultivators. Although these weed seeds can grow indoors, they reach full size in a warm, sunny, and dry environment.

Flowering is around 10–12 weeks, with harvesting happening in early November. Indoor cultivators can expect 14 oz./m2, while outdoor growers can collect around 22 oz./plant in optimal conditions.

Diesel strains tolerate indoor and outdoor cultivation, reaching up to nine feet tall when grown in optimal conditions.

The plants are resilient, hardy, and resistant to most diseases. Although they adapt easily, Diesel cultivars thrive in dry, warm, and sunny climates.

Indoor growers need to plan accordingly, as this cannabis plant loves to shoot out in all directions, making it a perfect candidate for the Screen of Green (SCROG) technique to maximize yields.


Healthy plants produce medium-sized, sticky buds that drip with trichomes. Flowers flaunt bright green nugs, orange hairs, and an abundance of crystals. Expect cannabinoid-rich buds that offer a buzz filled, cerebral high.


The flowering period for Diesel strains is around 8–10 weeks. Outdoor cultivators can expect harvest to occur around mid-October. Yields typically average 16 oz./m² indoors and a whopping 30 oz./plant under optimal outdoor conditions.

Diesel strain genetics

The Diesel strain dates back to the 1990s, with its discovery as much of a fluke as it could have been. Some seeds thought to have been sinsemilla coincidentally grew up to have the trademark features so many love today.

This strain is now one of the best-selling varieties in the USA. It’s made way for newer varieties such as Cherry Diesel, Lilac Diesel, and the tremendously popular Sour Diesel strains.
