About NYC Diesel Strain:
The high from this strain is euphoric and energizing but also insightful—you’ll be able to think clearly, and have a burst of clear-headed energy. Regarding body effects, NYC Diesel is mild and can make you feel pretty numb in your extremities. The "munchies" effect is powerful! It’s hard to resist eating more than you should after smoking it.
Regarding potency, NYC Diesel is a fairly strong strain suitable for beginners or intermediaries. The THC content is typically 18% but has ranged between 16% and 19% in different trials. The effects of this strain include increased energy levels, happiness, creativity, and focus. It can help people overcome depression and anxiety.
NYC Diesel won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2009, 2010, and 2012. In 2016, it won again at the Amsterdam Coffeeshop Cannabis Cup. This strain has been described as being "in between Sativa and Indica" in terms of effects, which means that it will give you both the physical relaxation of an Indica and the mental stimulation of a Sativa.
The smell is the most distinctive thing about NYC Diesel, and it’s pungent but not in an unpleasant way. It smells like lime with a hint of grapefruit, making it feel like you’re vaping something refreshing and citrusy. There’s also a slight minty undertone, but it’s faint enough that you can barely detect it.
The inhale gives you a burst of citrus—it’s almost like eating grapefruit at first, with a hint of sweetness. The exhale follows in the same vein: it’s not just sour, but sweet and sour all at once. If you want your citrus fix without feeling like you’re eating bad oranges all day, this is the strain for you!
The effects of the NYC Diesel cannabis strain are relatively mild, with a high focus and clear-headedness. They’re more energizing than a sedative.
The high kicks in immediately after use and is euphoric and energizing, like a boost of adrenaline. It’s not too dissimilar from the feeling you get when you’ve been exercising or studying hard all day—instead of being completely focused on your work, you’re completely focused on getting high and having fun!
It’s also clear-headed—you’ll be able to think clearly and make good decisions without feeling overly stressed or anxious. Your mind will feel just right, maybe slightly more active than usual, but still ready for anything life throws.
This strain is great for anyone who wants to come up with an idea but needs a little help staying focused on the project. It also makes it easier to focus on tasks that require a lot of concentration, like art or writing. The euphoria and energy this strain delivers will have you dancing around the room or getting your work done while you’re high!
The body numbness with this herb comes on very quickly (about 20 minutes after use). You may feel hungry or want to eat something sweet or salty. You may also feel light headaches and slight fatigue in your arms and legs after about an hour or so of use.
