In the international cannabis market, Diesel and Sour Diesel varieties have proved themselves to be highly popular genetics over the last decade or two, becoming firm favourites of both growers and smokers while providing breeders and extractors with excellent material to work with.
First coming to light in the 90's, Diesel gained its name due to the profoundly intense aroma and flavour that its flowers give off, reminiscent of fuel with fresh citric touches. Since then it has become just as famous for its high levels of THC and, consequently, the astoundingly potent effect it offers to consumers, not to mention its therapeutic benefits, giving effective relief from pain and stress.
As with many of the most popular modern US cannabis varieties, the origins of Diesel are shrouded in mystery, but the most popular theory is that it is Chemdog pollinated by a Massachusetts Super Skunk, which would certainly account for the aggressively pungent aromas that make the use of carbon filters essential when growing Diesel varieties.
Aside from the potent effects and unique terpene profiles, another great characteristic offered by Sour Diesel varieties is a huge production of extremely high-quality resin, which makes these plants perfectly suited to making cannabis concentrates and resin extractions of all types: Rosin, Water Hash, Dry Sift and BHO. This means that Diesel genetics are a component of some of the world's best hash-making varieties and a sure bet for growers who want to pheno-hunt their own cultivar for extraction purposes.
