Red Diesel is a wonderful cannabis strain that manages to combine a psychedelic sativa high with the bodily relaxation of an indica stone. It is a cross between New York City Diesel and Californian Orange Bud.
Red Diesel is a 50/50 indica/sativa hybrid strain with high levels of THC at 20% while the CBD content is fairly low at 1.1%. It grows well both indoors and outdoors although due to the late October harvest time it would be advised to resort to a greenhouse in higher latitudes such as those of northern Europe due to possible inclement conditions and frost which could both do a lot of damage towards the end of flowering. Indoors excellent yields of 600 gr/m2can be harvested in 60 – 65 days of flowering.
Plants stay short/medium in height reaching a maximum of 90 – 100 cm. tall. The large, resin-covered colas produced by Red Diesel are particularly attractive as the red hairs of the Californian Orange Bud are predominant. All in all Red Diesel is a near perfect balance of indica and sativa traits.
