In the land of the Sativas, Sour Diesel may be head and shoulders above its competition but its younger sibling NYC Diesel continually takes a shot at the title of New York City’s finest. With five Cannabis Cups to her name, NYC Diesel is a premium strain. There are a few different seed varieties floating around, but the most common these days is believe to be a backcross of the original NYC Diesel (Sour Diesel x Afghan Indica) back to the female clone. Likewise, NYC Diesel is nearly a mirror image of Sour Diesel, but it’s Afghan Indica influence gives it a slightly mellower high and a slightly darker tone. Be wary of anything with Diesel attached to it on the West Coast, particularly if it’s on the cheaper scale and doesn’t have the look of something special.
