Purple Diesel is a 60% Sativa-dominant hybrid marijuana strain that emerged as a result of crossing between Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Sour Diesel. On average, the THC content ranges starting from 15% up to 19%, when the CBD amount is insignificant, reaching only about 0.32-0.75%. Except for its unique appearance of dark purple buds with amber pistils, another distinctive feature of this strain is its appealing smell of sour berries and diesel. The terpene profile that created such an odd fragrance consists of:

Berry, grape flavored sativa dominant. It wants lots of sun and has a longer flower time of at least 70 days, I let mine go 75+. Great all day smoke.

Purple Diesel Strain Information

Purple Diesel Flavor Profile

The Purple Diesel strain’s flavor profile creates an uncommon, yet delicious combination of sour diesel mixed with sweet berries, grapes, accompanied by a note of earthiness and a pungent overtone. That gourmet tour is only possible thanks to the cooperation of all the terpenes: Linalool is responsible for berry flavors, while Ocimene takes care of earthy, diesel, and grape tastes. In turn, Pinene enhances the grape flavor, and Camphene is the one that creates that noticeable pungency.

Most Common Effects

Though the ratio between Indica and Sativa is equal, the effects from smoking Purple Diesel tend to lean more on the Sativa side. As the high starts to build up, it brings a boost of energy, enhances creativity, and sharpens focus. At the same time, it’s necessary to understand that this weed is a hybrid that also has an Indica side, which gives a pleasant relaxation both physically and mentally. 

The overall sense of uplift and comfort makes the consumer more talkative and even induces giggles. Regarding physical effects, some reviewers also highlight that Purple Diesel strain may provide tingles and even arousal properties. Besides that, hunger is also a common problem, so it’s better to prepare in advance. Despite the THC content may look comparatively small, it’s better not to underestimate this hybrid, even for experienced smokers.

The usage of Purple Diesel for medical purposes also has pretty vast options. This cannabis can alleviate the following list of ailments:

  • Anorexia
  • Arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Lack of appetite

However, some people reported several side effects, and it’s important to know about them:

  • Dry eyes
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Dizzy
  • Concern
  • Insomnia

Info for Growers
