Desert Diesel is a slightly Sativa-dominant Hybrid strain of cannabis. This bud was first grown in the United States by the reputable cannabis collective Humboldt Seed Organization. This cannabis collective includes several prominent and secretive growers in the infamous “Emerald Triangle,” a cannabis gold mine in Humboldt County, California. Desert Diesel is a powerful cross of Emerald Mountain DAD and Amherst Sour Diesel. It has made quite a name for itself as it packs quite a punch in the form of a super heady cerebral high. This daytime strain often tests for THC levels around 19%, though some harvests have seen test results above 20%.
Appearance & Aroma
These spade-shaped flowers are mint green in colour, with several undertones ranging from deep violet to bright orange depending on the growing conditions.
The smell produced by the Desert Diesel flowers is quite pungent, as it retains that traditional Sour Diesel aroma with a bit of sharp citrus tossed in for good measure. Some reports for this strain mention the flowers also producing a slightly sweet earthy scent, but this is likely the result of an excellent curing method. As users have said, the flavour is quite sweet, tasting a somewhat milky blend of sweet fruit, sour citrus, and a bit of musky earth. Sensitive palates will be subjected to a robust spicy aftertaste that will have you reaching back for hit after hit.
Effects & Benefits
This bud is often used by those who lack focus and motivation. If you find yourself in a funk, wanting to tackle a to-do list that grows longer by the day, this flower contains the perfect pick-me-up to help you get down to business.
The high starts by lifting your mood then motivates you with a sense of focus and purpose. Shortly, you’ll find yourself performing task after task without growing bored, tired, or disinterested in the routine. Some discover that Desert Diesel makes them more social, which has caused this strain to be taken out in smoking circles amongst buddies or for a private session before a fun night out on the town.
