Having said that, it's only logical that NYC Diesel took second place as the best Sativa during the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2001, 2003 and 2004.

Curious about what this particular plant has to offer for your new grow? Then read on!

Why you should buy NYC Diesel seeds:

  • Suitable for beginners
  • Great for medicinal use
  • Pleasant to smoke
  • Delicious high

Growing NYC Diesel (indoors and outdoors)

One of the most satisfying features of NYC Diesel feminized cannabis seeds is the ease with which this cannabis plant can be grown. The plant features a very high resistance to mold and is therefore suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation in cool and Mediterranean areas.

While growing, you can, if desired, apply different cultivation methods. For example SOG (Sea of Green) and SCROG with which you can increase your yield considerably. She is also very forgiving when it comes to pruning. Finally, this Sativa dominant plant requires a moderate diet and grows best in airy soil or a hydroponic setup.

Flowering time

The flowering time of this plant is about 9 to 10 weeks or 63 to 70 days. When grown outdoors, her flowering will end around October, after which she can be harvested.

Plant height

NY Diesel is a fairly fast growing plant, especially during the vegetative phase (growth phase). However, you can expect her to reach the same height as other similar Sativa hybrids under normal conditions.

  • Indoors, the plant usually reaches a height of 90 cm to 150 cm.
  • Outdoors, the plant usually reaches 125 cm to 175 cm in height.

NYC Diesel yield

NYC Diesel is a plant capable of developing high quality monster buds that are not only beautiful, but also give off an unmistakable diesel-like scent during the flowering phase. These thick, wide, dark green buds can turn purple shortly before harvest.

  • Max yield indoors 400 to 500 grams/m²
  • Max yield outdoors 450 to 650 g/plant

As for the high, NYC Diesel will surprise you with a wonderful feeling of abandon, joy, relaxation and a touch of euphoria. This moment of euphoria transitions pleasantly into a sense of calm and relaxation, mixed with a certain serenity.

She is a great stress reliever and can provide the necessary motivation. The weed is therefore perfect for medicinal use as well as inspiration on a creative level.

This wonderful high is clearly felt in both mind and body. Powerful, but absolutely not overwhelming. The weed is therefore very suitable for the beginner smoker, but also a fantastic choice if you want to grow a weed you can smoke on the couch with your friends.

Side effects

Side effects of NYC Diesel include dry mouth and eyes. At too high a dosage, you may experience dizziness and/or paranoid feelings. Therefore, take it easy and build up slowly.

Smell and taste

Although the name might suggest otherwise, NYC Diesel weed does not have a Diesel flavor. She tastes mostly of citrus fruits, such as tangerine, lime and lemon. However, the smell is unmistakably Diesel-like, and it is this very combination that makes this cannabis a true delight.

The smoke is quite balanced. You will taste her well in the mouth, but she is not too heavy and will not make you cough easily. Definitely a wonderful weed to smoke!


NYC Diesel owes her name to her roots in New York City, where she was developed. Together with Chemdwag, Sour Diesel and OG Kush, feminized NYC Diesel marijuana seeds are among the best-selling cannabis seeds in the United States and Holland.

She has an interesting genetic background, consisting of Mexican Sativa mixed with Afghan and Hawaiian Indica's. She is therefore an unforgettable strain and an all-time favorite in Amsterdam coffee shops.

Good Day! I ordered 10 NYC Diesel in the Spring and their pushing five feet and a whole lot of summer to go! Their profile says they grow 125 - 175 cm is it possible for them to continue to grow taller prior to flowering? I'm just thinking about transferring them into 25 gallon canvas pots? Any suggestions are welcome! Never had an issue with this bank!

I must’ve gotten a dud. Followed germination instructions exactly and waited the whole 7 days and then planted it to see what would happen and nothin. I only did one of the 5 seeds I received from here and 3 seeds from a different company and all three germinated and are officially in week 3 of veg. I understand I have 4 left but just disappointing that the 3 I got for $27 from a different site 100% germinated while ONE of NYC Diesel is $17 and didn’t germinate. I guess I’ll see how the other 4 turn out :/

Martijn (Verified customer) 2019-02-21

Really high quality seeds! All sprouted within 22 hours!!

C. Torres (Verified customer) 2019-01-21

Lovely strain to grow and not that difficult in my opinion. Had really good results indoors with some monster buds. Flowering time is a bit long, but its worth the wait. I definitely tasted sour flavors from the sour diesel and combined with the lemon it's awesome. Great fast shipping and affordable prices here at weedseeds express. Very recommendable. See ya next time.

Stewart (Verified customer) 2018-10-20

Although I am not an expert in the field of growing ... I have grown weed 6 times now but this strain was not that hard to grow. If you do have some experience, just give it a try. NY Diesel is top strain! I love the pleasant smell, earthy and full .. In my opnion, the effects are not that strong.

Wachter M (Verified customer) 2018-06-29

Its a very uplifting strain which you can easily smoke during a morning session. However, it was pretty hard growing this strain (this was my 4th cultivation). I would reccomend these seeds to more advanced growers.

Arnold (Verified customer) 2018-05-10

This NYC Diesel is a nice catch. It looks like the sour diesel, but then a improved version. It is difficult to grow, but if you have experience, this plant will not be a problem.

J. Jones (Verified customer) 2017-12-12

Love these ny diesel seeds from weedseedsexpress!

Maric (Verified customer) 2017-05-14

A really nice strain to grow indoors. I used some small pots which made the plants to grow small sized. Easy to grow, fast flower time and resilient. Beautiful strain and very peaceful.
