Combining genetics from a pure Kush indica with a close-to-pure sativa, Purple Diesel offers the best of both worlds in its effect. A favorite with daytime users seeking relief from aches and pains, it won’t knock you out and stays clear in the head. Purple Diesel was originally released by Bodhi Seeds but there are several different versions now making it a difficult strain to pin down. Regardless, look for purple-tinged flowers and be prepared for a taste and smell that is a combination of fruit and fuel.

History

Many other strains have since taken up the name Purple Diesel, attempting to imitate the effects and beautiful bud of Bodhi Seed's strain. Some breeders change the name slightly like Next Generation Seed's NY Purple Diesel. However, others continue to release cuts, clones and seeds under the name Purple Diesel.

Apparently there are many different strains that go by the name. Among them is one whose reported genetics are a Sonoma (Northern California) cross between NYC Diesel and Purple Urkle. There’s another Purple Diesel from NorCal that is said to have been born of an SDV3 (Reservoir Seeds) male and a NorCal Purple Kush clone. Bodhi Seeds made an SR71 Purple Kush x Sour Diesel IBL cross and called it Purple Diesel. Then there’s the pairing of Granddaddy Purple and Sour Diesel known as Purple Diesel. There’s Purple Haze and NYC Diesel adding to the confusion, not to mention Purple x West Coast Diesel. And don’t forget the NYC Diesel x Purple Oregon Thai.

Additional Information

Stealing its name from buds that are purple and covered in a thick layer of crystals, the Sativa-dominant hybrid going under the name Purple Diesel often smells of fuel and lavender. With similar flavors that usually taste fruity at first and then of straight diesel, the strain is often known to induce an energetic body buzz that leaves users free to go about their day. Released for a very short amount of time by Bodhi Seeds, Purple Diesel is a cross between SR71 Purple Kush and an inbred line Sour Diesel. The mother is a cross of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. Purple Diesel's famous father Sour Diesel is a strain of vague origins. Bodhi's version of Purple Diesel provided excellent daytime relief from chronic aches and pain. The uplifting effects can also help with stress, anxiety and depression. It may also be used to help with nausea and various eating disorders. The Bodhi Seeds version of Purple Diesel is extremely rare and hard to come by, which means very little information on growing it is available.

This strain is a cross between Purple Kush and Sour Diesel, and produces large, dark, purple nugs that give off a pungent fruity scent. Purple Diesel is a favorite among daytime users who deal with pain, as it will produce an invigorating body high, while allowing the patient to still be productive in daily tasks and activities. It also offers extraordinary cerebral effects and has been known to give the user an uplifting, euphoric high, capable of curing feelings of sadness or hopelessness.
