The grower for this crop of flower has grown NYC Diesel and Orange Kush simultaneously and has combined them into one batch. We have decided to keep these strains together and offer them as mixed buds.
Sour Diesel meets an original Afghani or Hawaiian strain in this sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40 sativa/indica ratio). NYC Diesel carries strong sativa genes from its Sour Diesel mother, while the father plant was either indica- or sativa-dominant. This strain is a good choice for busy days and social occasions, as it provides a peppy cerebral high with strong energy. THC levels can exceed 21%, making this a particularly potent medical option. CBD concentration, on the other hand, is very low, typical for a sativa. The high comes with a strong shot of euphoria, a mood boost, and a spark of creativity. It’s most useful when treating anxiety, chronic pain, and depression. It can also be an effective appetite stimulant. Negative effects are limited, especially paranoia, and that makes this an ideal choice for patients suffering from chronic anxiety. A strong, pungent fuel flavour predominates in this Diesel descendant, along with additional chemical notes. NYC Diesel should be relatively easy to find in New York State, though it’s probably more popular on the West Coast, especially in California, Oregon, and Washington State. It is also sold in Nevada and Michigan.
The sativa genes of OG Kush and the indica genes of Orange Bud were blended to form Orange Kush, allegedly an indica-dominant hybrid (reports on the sativa/indica ratio of this strain are unreliable at best). The flavour is tangy and citrusy while the smell has strong, sweet notes of orange. The buds have lime-green leaves and bright orange hairs to match the name. THC levels are known to top 22%, making this one of the strongest strains on any market, legal or otherwise. CBD, on the other hand, is very scarce, less than half of 1 percent, much too low to suggest Orange Kush as good treatment for seizure disorders and other problems that can be alleviated with CBD. The effects of this strain certainly hint at its indica leanings: powerful euphoria, deep physical relaxation, happiness, sleepiness, and a potent case of the munchies. That alone makes this a great tool in treating eating or wasting disorders, but Orange Kush is also a good choice for patients who suffer from anxiety, depression, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, muscle spasms, and aches and pains. Negatives may include dry eyes and cottonmouth. This strain is most popular in Arizona and the Pacific Northwest.
