A nice outdoor plant for Colorado summers this genetic will get huge if left to its own devices.  This fairly self-supportive sativa works well in a “screen of green” style grow space indoors and responds well to training.

NYC Diesel comes from Soma Sacred Seeds, an Amsterdam-based breeding company. This strain leans on the sativa side of the spectrum, at 60% sativa and 40% indica.

As legend has it, Soma himself was given these seeds by a man while in New York City. The man had dreads down to the floor, and claimed this was the best strain he’d ever smoked. Soma saw the dreads and figured the guy knew what he was talking about. And thus, NYC Diesel was born. NYC Diesel is a common crowd favorite, having won 9 different Cannabis Cup awards.

Like other sativa plants, the leaves of NYC Diesel are broad and flat in shape. Loose, airy buds intertwine with the dark green and purple leaves that are found throughout the plant. The color is interesting as it picks up a variety of color tones; deep purple, gold, blue and green. Amber trichomes cover the entire outside of the bud. This is a well-supported high-yielding plant that is resistant to pests and is easy to maintain, making it a great choice for beginning growers.
