Description: Strong grapefruit aroma and taste, dark green foliage, and a contemplative, relaxing effect make NYCD a favorite of many.


Story: Soma got a bagseed from a friend of his, who said it was from the best marijuana he’s ever smoked and that it came from New York.  This seed may have been Original Diesel/Underdawg or even Sour Diesel, but in any case Soma grew it out and then crossed it to Shantibaba’s Afghani x Hawaiian male to create the award-winning seed stock.
