Some strains creep up on users. Strawberry Diesel, though, is different. Not only does it act fast, but it also hits hard. Hence, beginners, be wary of this sweet-smelling cannabis as it can take one on a long trippy ride.
In more ways than one, this hybrid is practically NYC Diesel. Not only does it have the same structure, but even its effects are not that far off. However, it one-ups its predecessor by inheriting the fruity flavors of Strawberry Cough.
Growth structure aside, its effects are decisively cerebral. Even so, its Indica side does have the potential to deliver a devastating body high. Used in moderation, it induces a clear-headed, focused mental stimulation followed by uplifting physical effects.

Odor and Flavors
Strawberry Diesel is a winner when it comes to the aroma. It has a sweet strawberry and earthy blend with a hint of diesel. Appropriately cured, it can be extremely pungent and quickly fills up an entire room in no time at all.
Although it has a strong odor, its flavor is surprisingly light. Its smoke has a sweet note amidst a refreshing, earthy mix with delightful strawberry taste.
Strawberry Diesel packs an insane amount of THC. At 24%, it can be overbearing for some people if the dosage is high.
In moderation, this fast-acting hybrid invades the mind and the body with an energizing buzz. In an instant, not only does it clear the mind but it also enhances the ability to lock on tasks. Furthermore, it unlocks the creative side of the brain enabling free-flowing thoughts and ideas.
The euphoric mental stimulation changes the mood of users to happiness. And, feeling cheery and energetic, most people tend to be sociable and, at the same time, physically active.
Soon enough, as an uplifting sensation drifts into the body, many users are likely to take a step back. Although the Indica traits are not debilitating, it can be quite pronounced too. And, with the heaviness weighing down limbs, laziness creeps in.
In case some people did end up using a tad bit too much, then it is possible that the psychedelic high could become extreme. Instead of merely having a heightened sensitivity to surroundings, the mental stimulation may also come with visual and auditory distortions in which colors appear more vivid while sounds seem amplified. And once the full effects of the hybrid kicks in, it can leave users on a speedy high while locked on the couch.
Strawberry Diesel can induce cottonmouth and dry eyes. And, because of its potency, the symptoms potentially could be more pronounced than a gentler hybrid. At times, some users might feel momentary dizziness, especially when standing up abruptly from a seated position. Furthermore, it could also cause a few people to have a headache.
People with anxiety issues should also be wary of its dosage. It is because Strawberry Diesel could also elevate anxiousness instead of wiping it off. Apart from that, it also has the potential to cause some people to feel paranoid.
Medical Use and Benefits
A recreational hybrid, Strawberry Diesel is also not without medical use. Its high amount of THC ensures a euphoric psychedelic high. Thus, it can effectively eliminate stress. And, together with calming properties that puts people in a blissful state, it could also help people manage depression and other similar mental health issues.
Physically, the painkilling properties of its cannabinoids are used mostly to combat body pains and aches. It could also provide a reprieve from headaches and muscles spasms.
Other possible ways medical users can take advantage of this hybrid is to boost the appetite. And, used in the late afternoon to early evening, it allows one to finish a meal before chilling. Drowsiness is bound to set in making it useful as a sleeping aid, primarily by insomniacs.
Growing Strawberry Diesel
Strawberry Diesel has medium-sized green buds. It has dark orange hairs sticking out as well as covered with a generous coating of frosty trichomes.
It thrives well indoors or outdoors. Most home growers, though, prefer to cultivate it inside the house as having a controlled environment makes it easier to control molds and common diseases. The flowering time takes around eight weeks with a potential yield of 350 to 400 grams of buds per square meter.
Outdoors, Strawberry Diesel grows to an average height of 110cm. It enjoys the sunshine and should be ready for harvest before the end of October. Growers can expect some 400 grams of buds per plant.
