Black diesel is a sativa-dominant hybrid marijuana strain (70%sativa and 30%indica) with high THC levels 19%THC and a low CBD content. Former High Times Cannabis Cup award winner. The texture is moderately loose but still dense enough to hold onto plenty of trichomes. It is named after its most prominent characteristics: dark, oily buds and an earthy diesel aroma. Users report feeling more creative and energetic when smoking this strain, while others report feeling more relaxed and sedated by it. The strain has since been used for medical purposes, often in the treatment of chronic pain. Popular among consumers who are looking for a strain that can be used during the daytime for body relaxation.
