Blue City Diesel, sometimes known simply as Blue Diesel, comes from British Columbia, birthplace of some of the most enduring and beloved cannabis strains available today. Jordan of the Islands Seeds crossed Blueberry with New York City Diesel to produce this balanced hybrid with numerous and wide-ranging uses. Combining the best traits of its parents, Blue City Diesel is fast acting and delivers a long-lasting creative and energizing high with body relaxation that doesn’t lead to fatigue. Blueberry’s sweet fruity flavors and scents combine with the Diesel’s sour fuel overtones in a tasty treat that is appropriate for any time of day. Note that Breeder’s Choice has also crossed the same genetics to create what they call New Blue Diesel, and while it may be difficult to know which version you are getting, the effects should be more or less the same.

Blue Diesel has a flowering time of 55 to 60 days, and can be grown both indoors and outdoors. The plants generally grow to around 4 to 6 feet tall, adjourned with dense, well structured buds. The nuggets are less green in color, looking more akin to a brilliant explosion of tantalizing blue and purple hues mixed together, covered generously in burnt orange pistils. Not only are the buds beautiful and potent, but the yield of the plants are excellent and bountiful, making this a great choice for growers.

Additional Information

Blue Diesel is a cross between the Indica dominant Blueberry strain and the Sativa dominant NYC Diesel strain bred by Jordan of the Islands. Another nickname for this strain is Blue City Diesel. Blue Diesel, as a result, is a hybrid cannabis strain with a moderate dominance on the Indica side. The stone is both pleasant and moderate to long lasting, and a great choice for a daytime smoke. You can wake and bake with this strain and work efficiently all day. Waking up to it's beautiful, purple and blue tinged buds is surely a great start to the day!

Also known simply as Blue Diesel, Blue City Diesel is a highly potent mix of Blueberry and NYC Diesel. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid (40:60 sativa/indica ratio), but it delivers both mind and body effects. THC levels have been known to exceed 23%, making this one of the strongest strains available for patients in search of THC. CBD levels, on the other hand, are decidedly low, much less that 1%. This means this strain is not a good selection for patients whose symptoms require CBD. The high is a combination of euphoric and happy mental effects with a lazy, sleepy body buzz. Blue City Diesel is best used to treat chronic pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, and muscle spasms. It’s effective at almost any time of day, though many find it most useful at night. Reports of adverse effects include dry mouth and dry eyes, while headaches and dizziness are also possible. This strain is found mostly on the West Coast and in Colorado, though it’s popular enough that it likely appears on the black market in other parts of the United States.

Just as you would expect from a name like Blue Diesel, the genetics are directly related to the mixing of Blueberry (Indica-dominant Hybrid) and NYC Diesel (Sativa-dominant Hybrid). If you have encountered the Blueberry strain before, you probably are already familiar with its Indica dominance. Blueberry is typically considered as roughly 80% Indica and only 20% Sativa. Its noticeable body effect can definitely be found in Blue Diesel as well. Each hit of Blue Diesel comes with smooth, expansive smoke that seems to be extremely fast-acting. One of my favorite strains to medicate with during the day, as it provides full-bodied medicine that won’t leave me exhausted. Consider the Blue Diesel strain if you suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, PTSD, or muscle spasms.

A pungent strain whose palate is dominated by a sweet aroma of blueberries and violets. Notes of spicy herbs and a grapefruit-like citrus balance the flavor and remind the smoker of this strain’s diesel heritage. Blue Diesel is a potent hybrid that is just barely on the indica side, but its psychedelic and immediate head-high doesn’t cause couch-lock.
