Also known as “New York Diesel” and “East Coast Chief” Sour Diesel met an original Afghan or Hawaiian strain and that lovely union produced this sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40 sativa/indica ratio). NYC Diesel carries strong sativa genetics from her Sour Diesel mother, while the parent plant was indica or sativa dominant. This strain is a good choice for busy days and social occasions as it provides an energetic cerebral high. THC levels can exceed 21%, making her a particularly potent medical option. The CBD concentration, on the other hand, is very low, typical of a sativa. The high comes with a heavy hit of euphoria, an uplifting mood, and a spark of creativity. It is most helpful when treating anxiety, chronic pain, and depression. It can also be an effective appetite stimulant. The negative effects are limited, especially paranoia, and that makes it an ideal option for patients suffering from chronic anxiety. A strong, pungent fuel flavor predominates in this descendant of Diesel, along with additional chemical notes. NYC Diesel should be relatively easy to find in upstate New York, though it’s probably more popular on the West Coast, especially California, Oregon, and Washington state. Also sold in Nevada and Michigan.
