NYC Diesel is a mostly Sativa hybrid that has won 9 different cannabis cup awards (though not every award has been for first place).
NYC Diesel comes from Soma Seeds and as the story goes Soma received these seed from a friend in the Big Apple. The friend claimed that the stuff in the bag was the best he had ever had and since the guy had dreads down to the floor, Soma believed him and kept a couple. Reportedly the genetics for this strain are a cross between a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani. Capable of growing both indoors and out, this strain does best inside. Unfortunately many stray from trying to grow this strain as the flowering can take up to 85 days.
Typically, this Sativa strain is used as ‘wake and bake’ medication to start off many medical users’ day full of energy, but for some it may need to be relegated to afternoon use as its high can be quite powerful.
