Effects & Usage



Billed as the morning pick-me-up for the experienced toker, Blue Diesel, with its Sativa tilt, offers a balancing act between invigorating cerebral effects and a soothing body high. Its THC levels vary at 18-24%.

It’s a hybrid cultivar that refreshes as much as it relaxes, with a moderate high that’s neither overwhelming nor underwhelming.


Blue Diesel’s effects are described as smooth and swift, providing an immediate sense of uplift without the fatigue commonly found in Indica-dominant strains. This strain is perfect for those who seek a pleasant buzz to launch their day or unwind without being tethered to the couch​.

Expect a pleasant sense of creativity and focus – you will have some energy to direct but not too much that it can make you uncomfortable. The strain keeps on giving, from a morning lift to evening relaxation.


Users report relief from chronic pain, an easing of anxiety, and a boon for those battling insomnia.

Side effects

While most experiences with Blue Diesel are positive, newcomers should be cautious. The strain can induce dry mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, headaches, and, in some cases, paranoia.

Taste & Smell


Aesthetically, Blue Diesel is a feast for the eyes, presenting a palette of violet and blue hues ready for harvest, adorned with golden brown pistils.

Its scent is a complex symphony of strong diesel notes marked with berry and sweet undertones, while the palate is treated to a pungent diesel taste layered with sweet, fruity undertones​.



Blue Diesel, or Blue City Diesel as it’s also known, is the progeny of the power couple Blueberry and NYC Diesel.

This harmonious genetic merger was first accomplished by the skilled hands at Jordan of the Islands, a cultivator known for a keen eye for creating strains with rich terpene profiles and complex effects.

Growing conditions

The strain is a grower’s delight, promising generous yields in both indoor and outdoor settings. Blue Diesel shows resilience against minor fluctuations in temperature, humidity, and water levels, although it prefers drier, sunnier climates. It reaches flowering in about 8-9 weeks and can grow to a medium or tall height, depending on the conditions.
