The present Strawberry Diesel strain review sees to underline all the details that make this assortment of weed one of the top choices in the world.
History Of Strawberry Diesel Strain
How was it developed?
The history behind the Strawberry Diesel strain started in 2007, when the experienced grower and renowned developer of hybrid cannabis, Reservoir Seeds, decided to try this unexpected combination, getting the original recipe for this strain. The reason why we’ve emphasized the “original” part of the tale is that since 2009 after some growers got their hands on a batch of Strawberry Diesel seeds, numerous clones have appeared. The brand got so famous that anybody who fancied themselves cannabis growers started to genetically mix up the seeds and come up with their own version of the plant. Nowadays, we’re at the point where it’s very hard to find any original seeds created by the Reservoir Seeds’ initial intention.
The Lineage Of Strawberry Diesel Strain
This hybrid compound has been brought to life, through the ingenuity of Reservoir Seeds, which managed to mix together multiple male plants of Sour Diesel, with the Strawberry Cough.
Strawberry Diesel Strain Effects
The effect of the high is closely related to the appropriate dosage of cannabis used. Even the slightest variation can completely overturn the desired outcome. Thus, when smoking it in a carefully controlled, smaller dosage, the increased energy and focus prevail. When the dosage is higher than the user is used to, a sense of peace and relaxation befalls upon him. The second script takes place as a result of the Indica compound kicking in. And while the state doesn’t necessarily mean being glued to the couch, it’s still not recommended to exaggerate.
The high starts all of a sudden, with a strong head rush, leaving any newbie dizzy, before the energy and clarity state kicks in. After several hits, the mellow, relaxed stage of the high is set, overcoming the entire body, without leaving the user nonfunctional, as other Indica-based plants do.
Medical Appointments Of Strawberry Diesel Strain
There are several ways to use this strain, from a medical point of view, being part of a vast number of treatments for different ailments. First of all, both the Indica and Sativa parts of the hybrid have an active compound in calming down the levels of accentuated stress, as well as anxiety. The second stage of the high helps in muscle relaxation and aids in alleviating back pain and other general body aches. The same relaxation effect can be used in treating sleep disorders, insomnia being at the top of this list.
The clarity brought by the clear-headed part of the high, with the increased focus and concentration, has been proven to help in showing improvement in the cases of affections that require a boost in attention, such as ADHD, PTSD, or ATT.
Screwing up the dosage might mean becoming highly relaxed when the user needed to turn into a man of action. Also, the reverse is available when trying to depressurize after a long day’s work and the Sativa-related energy kicks in, keeping you focused and awake during nighttime.
The Strawberry Sour Diesel lost most of its original savor, since any grower went on to mix the seeds, in order to recreate the perfect balance, but only managing to throw onto the market, clones of the original, most of them being a quite low-quality product. The seeds of Strawberry Diesel have been mixed for so many times that most of the original features it had been lost along the long way of genetically cross-breeding.
It’s also not suited for novices as it kicks in fast and with a strong head rush, one that most newbies in the domain might not be aware of how to handle.
Effects – Medical Appointments – Negatives
The red dry eyes are the most common medical effect that every cannabis strain presents. The same can be said about the cottonmouth effect. Both of these conditions are easily alleviated through intense hydration, both during and after the high sets in. Higher doses bring along an increase in anxiety and even paranoia outcomes, other common side effects of weeds with a large THC component.
One of the most upsetting negative effects is the dizziness that comes along with the initial head rush, due to its intense and sudden manifestation.
What Are The Reasons To Choose Strawberry Diesel Strain?
Reading the name out loud might create certain expectations about the way this strain looks. However, its aspect is pretty common to cannabis buds, being of green nuance of medium intensity, orange hairs intertwined with the green leaves, all covered in resin coatings.
Smell and aroma
As its name suggests, the Strawberry Diesel weed has a pungent initial earthy aroma, due to its diesel componence, but an equally powerful fresh strawberry smell, to compensate it.
The flavor is consistent with the initially received aroma, when smelling it and with the strain’s name. Its taste comes as quite the shock, even for those users more accustomed to it, not just for newbies. It takes a couple of seconds for the diesel flavor to be overwashed by the strawberry sweetness. The following hits are a bit mellowed down since the strawberry taste already persists in the mouth.
Although the Indica/Sativa proportions are evenly distributed, this strain has a chemical component which situates it in the above average list, by THC percentages. This hybrid has around 20-24% THC, with less than 1% CBD. This is a bit surprising given the wide array of medical uses and it’s also a warning against using it too often, or in large doses, due to the side effects of THC intoxication, paranoia and increased anxiety among them.
Who Is More Suitable For?
When carefully dosed, it can be an appropriate option for those in need of an additional boost of energy. Going past the user’s own breaking point sends him in a state of relaxing, while also having a clear and attentive mind.
Opinion by growers
As stated before, growers jumped at the prospect of creating their own strawberry sour diesel strain, to the point of hardly being able to find the original seeds, the vast majority of those on the market, presenting cloned features.
Popularity by growers
The strain has become highly popular among growers, mostly due to the diverse medical usage, combined with the appeal the unexpected flavor has on users. It’s mostly popular among growers on the West Coast, Colorado standing out, along Montana, or Michigan.

The plant thrives best when grown indoor, with above-average yield, but greenhouse and outdoor cultivation is also possible if the climate permits.
Useful To Edibles-Cooking?
