Strawberry Diesel

Strawberry Diesel is regarded as an ultimate hybrid because it is a cross between two top-quality parents, Strawberry Cough and NYC Diesel. This hybrid strain (cultivar) contains high THC levels and no CBD content, making it perfect for muscle relaxation, although it can also feel uplifting. Some users also claim that it’s excellent for clearing the mind and potentially very useful for anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Additionally, the Strawberry Diesel strain is renowned for helping with insomnia. However, it’s not limited to nighttime use only and is perfectly fine for daytime. Many say it helps them get through a busy day with minimal distractions.

The smell of Strawberry Diesel is sensational because it inherited a thick but sweet aroma from both parent strains. Many users like it for the scent alone. However, the effects it has are certainly worth noting.

The best temperatures for this plant are between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 29 degrees Celsius). It must stay indoors if you grow this plant in a cooler area, and grow lamps are an excellent method of maintaining consistent heat.
