Organic Diesel is a potent but mysterious hybrid that leans toward the sativa end of the spectrum. Although it's clear from the bud's aroma that it is descended from Diesel varieties, Organic Diesel's original breeders and exact genetic background are not known. That hasn't stopped this pungent bud from becoming popular for its easygoing mental high, though. Organic Diesel's THC content has been measured at levels ranging from 16% to an impressive 28%.
When trimmed, flowers of Organic Diesel are on the small to medium side. These chunky buds have a broad, flared base but taper down into a pointed end, making them resemble miniature pinecones. Despite a mostly sativa background, the leaves have more of an indica appearance, small and tightly coiled toward their stems and core. The leaves themselves are a drab, mossy green, but vivid red pistils add some visual interest. A plentiful coating of cloudy white trichomes finishes off Organic Diesel's flowers, accounting for their psychoactivity.
True to its name, Organic Diesel has a rich, predominant odor of gasoline, bordering on skunk. Taking a second whiff of these complex flowers may reveal some spicy and earthy hints as well. When broken apart or ground up, the strain yields more of a sour, almost fermented odor that may be unpleasant to some. Burning buds of Organic Diesel intensifies the strain's skunky scent and can result in a harsh, cough-inducing smoke. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind some diesel fumes.
Organic Diesel begins to reveal its effects not long after users have finished coughing on its acrid smoke. Within five minutes or so, smokers may be struck by a feeling of heaviness in the head, met with some pressure in the temples and possible flushing in the cheeks. Soon after, they may pick up on strange changes in their cognition; ideas may flow more quickly or may seem to take on a new intensity. Additionally, changes in sensory perception are possible, with some consumers experiencing strange visual or auditory distortions. Depending on individual motivation or priorities, this head-focused can be channeled towards work on complex and detailed tasks. Alternatively, it simply provide some background amusement for those immersed in mundane chores like laundry or dishes.
After about an hour (or sooner, if dosage is increased), Organic Diesel begins to exert some noticeable physical effects. Feelings of relaxation may roll down the spine and spread outward through the core to the extremities. This blissed-out feeling can easily distract from any earlier bouts of productivity, so consumers should plan accordingly. Overall, though, Organic Diesel isn't heavy enough to pin its smokers down with couchlock. Instead, the strain's later phases can be a fun way to pass the time with some likeminded (or similarly intoxicated) friends. Because of its gradual slowdown in energy, Organic Diesel is recommended for late afternoon through evening consumption.
Organic Diesel's versatile properties make it an appealing choice for medical cannabis patients as well. Its initially plugged-in ways of thinking make it a great option for those with attention deficit disorders seeking to sustain concentration on single tasks. This hybrid's mood-boosting nature also makes it a solid (albeit temporary) treatment for mild to moderate stress and depression. Physically speaking, Organic Diesel can provide relief from aches and pains, whether they're temporary or due to serious chronic conditions. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may take the sting out of everyday afflictions like cramps or headaches. Because this strain's intensely cerebral state may veer into paranoia in the wrong set and setting, it is not recommended for those who are panic-prone or who have a low THC tolerance.
Unfortunately, seed of Organic Diesel are not readily available for purchase online. Those looking to growing the strain at home should seek out a reputable source from which to obtain clippings from mature plants of the same variety. Although there is little information publicly available on best cultivation practices for Organic Diesel, we know that, like most hybrids, it can be grown indoors or outdoors in a hot and humid climate. The strain's compact, indica-inflected buds also suggest that its crops have a squat, bushy stature and that they flower within a relatively brief period.
Somewhat difficult to come by, Organic Diesel is worth sampling if spotted in recreational or medical dispensaries. Its blend of mental and physical stimulation makes it a great way to enjoy activities like dancing, exercising, and -- given the right company -- sex.
