Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD/ADD)

Utilizing CBD and other phytocannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis may help replace the lost endocannabinoids, helping treat pain and mood disorders associated with NF1 gene mutations. Using THC may help boost dopamine levels in the brain.

Medical cannabis may also help reduce the intake of stimulant medications. Terpenes like beta-caryophyllene and limonene may be beneficial for reducing the intake of stimulants and addiction in general.

Growing

growing strains

Blue Diesel is an excellent choice for a beginner, as it is a forgiving strain and isn’t heavily impacted by minor temperature, humidity, and water differences. However, it will respond poorly to sudden negative conditions. Even when optimal growing conditions aren’t met, the strain can produce a good crop with high yields.

Blue Diesel grows well inside and outside, though it usually provides a better yield in outside conditions. Although the plant prefers dry, sunny climates such as those found in California or the Mediterranean, it also has some resistance to mold and mildew. It can be grown in slightly more humid conditions if careful.

Height

Blue Diesel is a medium to tall plant and may benefit from topping (removal of the upper portion of the plant) at five to seven weeks, especially when grown indoors. Plants usually grow to between 4 and 6 feet in height, depending on growing conditions and whether or not the plant is topped, and plants tend to grow taller in outside conditions.

Humidity and Temperature

Although Blue Diesel is somewhat resistant to the damp, low humidity helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew. The strain prefers dry, hot climates such as those found on the middle to lower West Coast of the U.S.

Flowering

Flowering occurs at around 55-60 days, or in late September to early October, in the northern hemisphere. Blue Diesel is an exceptionally high producing strain when grown in good conditions, producing up to 1.8 ounces per square foot and 21 ounces per plant outdoors.
