Sometimes, people who start slowly are described as or referred to as diesel. For instance, in drinking sessions among friends, there are those who could not drink a lot especially when they just got started. But as time passes and more alcohol is consumed, they seem to drink faster and more. So, if one were to think of Strawberry Diesel that way, then they are in for a rude awakening as soon as they take the first few puffs.

If not for taking its name from one of its parents, there is nothing sweet or sexy about this strain that has a smell and taste dominated by diesel, taken from the other parent. Once you start using this cannabis, be ready for the onslaught of its brute strength in rushing in an intense mental high. But the good thing is that this is followed by a physical body high that balances the head high.

Strawberry Diesel comes from the cross between two hybrids that are highly acclaimed, NYC Diesel hybrid and Strawberry Cough Sativa. The result is a well-balanced strain that has an above-average THC level that ranges from 20% to 24%.

Effects

For sure, this strain does not start slow. Instead, the onset comes pretty quick and beginners in using cannabis might be taken by surprise at the buzzing cerebral high that kicks in. After the initial surprise, it tones down to a more mellow buzz and an almost immediate mood swing to that of feeling uplifted and happy. For some, they might even feel an intense elation.

The Indica side of Strawberry Diesel also starts to creep in the body, making you feel highly relaxed. Used in moderation, your mind remains sharp, and possibly even clearer, and you seem to be able to have a better focus. But in higher dosages, this strain might leave you in a couch-lock.

Fragrance

When it comes to aroma, Strawberry Diesel is a force to reckon with. It has a pungent and earthy odor dominated by diesel, but it also has a sweet undertone of strawberry. While this may lead some people to be wary of bringing it outdoor, nevertheless, the pleasantness of its fragrance is undeniable.

Flavors

While diesel dominates its fragrance, it is more toned down as the smell carries over to its taste. What makes Strawberry Diesel delightful is the tone of sweet strawberry that lingers as an aftertaste. Without a doubt, you will find its taste agreeable and one you might even look forward to tasting again, and again.

Adverse Reaction

Having dry mouth, or sometimes, dry eyes, are common with the use of cannabis. As such, it is important to stay hydrated. Other than those two, there are also other negative reactions you want to watch out for.

Because this is a potent strain that kicks in hard, this could cause some people to feel a little dizzy, and this is common especially with beginners. Also, those who have anxiety issues must not overuse this strain, because if they do, rather than easing, it might elevate anxiousness.

Medical

The top reason why people use Strawberry Diesel, as well as many other cannabis strains, is to manage their stress levels. Because of the well-balanced mental and body high, the relaxation it gives helps take away stress. Consequently, those who are going through depression might find this strain useful, as well.

Another common reason for using this strain is to provide a relief from mild chronic pains and aches. Instead of constantly being in pain, the strong physical high alleviates the symptoms and helps calm the muscles and release the tension.

In some cases, as the effects of Strawberry Diesel subside, some users might feel hungry. If that is the case, then it should also benefit those who do need to have a better appetite.

Growing

Strawberry Diesel can be grown outdoor, indoor, as well as in a greenhouse. Because it is prone to mold and pests, it might not be the easiest cannabis plant to grow. Although it would require more attention and care than other strains, it is still rewarding at the end when you harvest this delightful and potent cannabis.

While the climate indoor, especially when you use an indoor growing tent is controllable, the outdoor environment is different. So, what you would like to do is to plant around 8 weeks before its expected flowering period on October, and that the climate would be similar to that of the Mediterranean.

Flowering Time

Indoors
Strawberry Diesel is a small plant that makes it a good strain to grow indoor if space is limited. Besides being able to control the temperature and providing optimal grow light source, you are also able to shield the plant from pests. After 8 weeks, you will be harvesting around 12 to 14 ounces of this delightful cannabis per square meter.

Outdoors
One thing you might want to be wary of when planting the Strawberry Diesel in an outdoor setting such as your garden would be its pungent odor that is unmistakably that of cannabis. If that is not a concern, then after 2 months of close attention and care, you could expect a harvest of 14 ounces or even more per plant.
