Triple Diesel Medical Marijuana Strain Review


Grade:  A-

Type:  Sativa-Dominant Hybrid (NYCD x Sour Diesel x OG Kush)

Price:  $50/8th

Appearance:  (8.5/10)  Kind of a scary-looking sample, it’s very dark in color and you can see the ambered trichomes even with the naked eye… there’s around 75% in places and it probably has the most ambers we’ve ever seen on a sample.  The bud structure is lovely and looks very Sativa-heavy, with shaking columns of calyxes built on top of one another in a distinctive “foxtailing” pattern.  Deep red and even black pistils contribute to the dark appearance.

Aroma:  (8.5/10)  Soily and slightly sweet in the jar, it breaks up to produce a fresh menthol-tinged soil scent when handled.  It reminded one reviewer of freshly torn mint leaves…  The pungency was pretty average, but it was enough to be noticed without being right near the bud.

Taste: (6/10)  Not as tasty as we expected, it was a pretty standard Diesel type taste, with a soil tinge similar to what was presented in the smell.  There were no traces of the NYCD or Strawberry Diesel influence with their brand of sweetness, it was mostly just a fuel and soil taste, but not a particularly pungent one.  It burned down to a medium-light gray ash, showing that it had an above-average flush job.

Effects:  This one was much calmer than other Triple Diesel strains we’ve tried, likely due to the insane amount of ambered trichomes and increase in CBN it represents.  It started with a little buzz of energy waves throughout the body but quickly receded to a strongly spacey state with a burning/buzzing sensation behind the eyes that was very potent.  It was a fairly narcotic-feeling experience overall, with waves going through the relaxed body, eyes fading in and out of focus at times, and the urge to mostly remain seated and pursue mental stimulation.  In all, it was a smooth and manageable Diesel strain and didn’t carry the craziness that some of them do.

Duration:  Medium Long, about 2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Strong attention to the eyes suggests it would help with glaucoma, it also provided quality mental and physical relaxation and minor pain relief.  It was a mood enhancer and would likely help with depression and even mild anxiety, as it didn’t have any “racy” effects at all really.

Overall: We loved the look of this strain, with its super-Sativa foxtailing and swaths of deeply ambered trichomes, and it turned out that those trichomes totally changed the experience that we’ve become accustomed with this strain.  If you normally can’t deal with the racy Sativas but want to try a Diesel strain, this might be a good choice simply because it was so relaxing.  The taste wasn’t anything special, but the smell was unique for the strain, carrying a heavily minty/menthol overtone.  While it would be interesting to see what an early or even medium harvest would do for this particular cut, we actually enjoyed this one more as a daily med than a standard rushy Diesel.

    This Triple Diesel cross from Nedicate is actually Sour Diesel x NYCD x OG Kush – not a strawberry cross of any kind. That also has a huge impact on the high, bringing the sometimes edgy diesel down a little with a heavier, slightly indica dominant OG Kush influence.
