    My experience with this strain was excellent from start to finish. I love this weed because every time it makes me the happiest in the world, even though Im just lying on the couch. Actually, the smell is not that bad, I like its citrus notes.


    Already from the name it’s clear that this strain is POWERFUL. My favorite one!!!

    I didnt like it at all. Perhaps I chose not the best time, because now I am depressed, and NYC Diesel only intensified my negative effects. It all started out fine, but as the buzz got stronger, I began to have paranoid thoughts.
