We all really liked the look of this one, from its foxtailed (but not heat-stressed) structure to its perfect manicure and trichome coverage. Just a very pretty example of a Diesel strain, with a strong lime green color, peach pistils, and great harvest timing (10% or so ambers). We couldn’t find any flaws with this one appearance-wise; there were no signs of stress like tiny seeds or discoloration, and it was perfectly dense without being an over-dried rock.
This one had some of the typical diesel notes in the jar/bag before it was ground up, but they seemed to disappear, turning into more of a sweet herby grapefruit… it seemed to be both sweet and musky at the same time, which is certainly unique. It seems that the NYCD dominated the smell department, not much of the acrid, pungent Sour Diesel smell at all… in this case, that wasn’t a bad thing.
Similar to the smell but much less sweet-tinged, the taste was also a semi-musky citrus with some menthol qualities. It turned a bit more to the earthy/smoky side as it burned away, but overall was rather pleasant the whole way through. One reviewer reported some post-smoking throat burn, but the others felt it was a pretty smooth smoke despite being fairly thick. Pretty average taste overall, which was slightly disappointing after the top-notch aroma.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Mood elevation, anti-anxiety (though the first 30 mins were a little rushy-feeling), ocular attention, good appetite stimulation, and relaxation as it went on.
Though we missed the acrid Sour Diesel part of the equation at times, this was a very enjoyable Diesel experience that was neither too heavy nor too light. It felt like a true hybrid, with a blend of Sativa and Indica effects that played well together rather than battling for attention. The appearance was top-notch, with its sound but distinct structure, copious trichome coverage, and lack of flaws. The smell was right up our alley and seemed NYCD-dominant with a grapefuit bent. Overall, we like this med as a daytime or early evening strain for those looking for some mood elevation, relaxation, and appetite stimulation — it’s suitable for all levels of patient because it was never too strong but can be enjoyed even by the connoisseurs.
