Effects & Usage



Lilac Diesel is a hybrid with a perfectly balanced composition of sativa and indica. The intricate blend of 4 varieties is a testament to its skilled breeders, who maximised its potential health benefits. This strain boasts a broad cannabinoid profile: alongside a high THC concentration ranging from 20 to 24%, it features a notable amount of CBG at 3%. Combined with a mouthwatering, tasty experience, this is a well-rounded strain loved both by medicinal and recreational users alike.


The onset of Lilac Diesel’s effects is relatively quick, with initial euphoria and mental stimulation sensations. Within minutes you will feel a sense of focus so potent that you can fully unleash your creativity. Utilise this phase of your trip for any artwork, writing or music composition, and you will notice how smoothly everything is coming along.

Take advantage of these effects quickly if you smoke the bud for inspiration. As the high progresses, bodily sensations will start to take over. You will feel profoundly relaxed, and any tension will melt away. However, you might not have too much energy left to do anything more rather than just be at peace and serenity with yourself.

With these versatile effects, the hybrid can be used in various settings – for some mid-day boost when you get stuck, for peaceful chilling with your friends or anytime after a long day when you need a break. If timed properly before bed, it can help you go to sleep. Anyone struggling with physical ailments will also appreciate this relaxing outcome, as Lilac Diesel is much appreciated for its medicinal benefits.

With its uplifting effects, Lilac Diesel offers solace to those with mood disorders and anxiety. The relaxing and anti-inflammatory properties relieve pain, muscle spasms, and headaches. However, where the hybrid truly shines is in the treatment of symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders. The presence of 3% cannabigerol (CBG), which is widely known as the mother of all cannabinoids, and has been reported to alleviate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), maximizes the benefits for patients who struggle with nausea, appetite loss, and digestive issues.

Side effects

The effects of Lilac Diesel can be described as a paradox – whilst the strain shines as a remedy for anxiety, some users do feel on edge after consumption, reporting paranoia, anxiety and mild headaches. Therefore, it is crucial to start slowly, even if you are a seasoned cannabis smoker.

Due to its relaxing effects, Lilac Diesel can make you sleepy and, as such, is not recommended for morning use.

Taste & Smell


Lilac Diesel is a strain that delights the senses in every regard. The first glance at the nuggets reveals the fusion of colours – with green, red and purple hues. The purple-coloured trichomes covering the buds and leaves round off the experience.

The flavour and fragrance profiles are equally fascinating. As suggested by its name, Lilac Diesel has a strong gassy, chemical odour mixed with fruity-smelling terpinolene notes of berries and citrus. Pinene and caryophyllene give the strain its piney and spicy tones. The taste is similar to the scent, but the taste of pine, citrus, and berry flavours take centre stage here. This results in a balanced, multi-faceted, smooth smoke.



Lilac Diesel was developed in Colorado by Ethos Genetics. This harmonious blend of divine genetics traces its roots to a rich heritage of acclaimed cannabis strains. The result of meticulous crossbreeding, the strain unites the potent and flavorful attributes of Silver Lemon Haze, Forbidden Fruit, Cherry Pie, and Citral Glue. These diverse genetic contributors bestow Lilac Diesel with its enchanting aroma, balanced effects and unique therapeutic potential.
