With so many choices out there, it might be difficult to find exactly what you're looking for, but we’ve got your back. Read on to find out the best Diesel strain for you.
Diesel-Smelling Weed Strains Terpene Profile
Chemicals called terpenes are responsible for the aroma and flavor of each marijuana strain. There are many different kinds of terpenes in cannabis, but there’s no single terpene that creates the pungent, earthy scent associated with “diesel” weed strains – rather, it’s a mixture of them.
Many diesel-smelling cannabis varieties have comparatively high levels of three specific terpenes – myrcene, limonene, and beta-caryophyllene – but they can also contain varying quantities of pinene. They typically possess an exceptionally powerful aroma and/or flavor profile (as well as significant THC content exceeding 20%).
Best Diesel Strains
There are many types of Diesel strains out there, so it can be tough to narrow down your search. To help you out, we’ve made a list of the top Diesel weed strains that you should know about.
Sour Diesel is perfect for anybody who needs some strong, heady smells. It may look less than appealing at first, but you can trust us when we say that the Sour Diesel strain packs a powerful punch. This is a Sativa-dominant hybrid plant made as a cross between Chemdawg and Northern Lights. It will knock you off your feet and make you feel alive again with its intense effects – a result of its super high THC levels of up to 26%. But don't let the numbers fool you: what makes Sour Diesel truly great is how well its potent features complement one another with earthy flavors and sweet aromas.

It delivers uplifting effects that boost productivity but are mild enough to connect with those around you without disrupting conversation with laughter. The aroma coming from this flower is rich and pungent – fruity with herbal undertones reminiscent of diesel fuel. Adequate ventilation is a must if growing indoors!
Feelings of physical euphoria accompany the cerebral high, lasting anywhere between 6 and 12 hours. This unique strain can be found in weed dispensaries for its medicinal properties used to treat conditions like chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, and migraines.
New York Diesel Auto
New York Diesel Auto is a pure Sativa, but you'd never guess that just by looking at it, with its height below 120 cm and moderate growth rate. However, the most remarkable thing about this potent strain is its ability to hit both hard AND grow fast, flowering in just 8 weeks from seed to harvest.
The smell, flavor, and high all have an undeniably diesel-y vibe, mixed with hints of incense (definitely in line with traditional Haze strains). When you try this weed out for yourself, you'll know what we're talking about! This herb’s happy, funny, cheerful effects come on strong yet last surprisingly long. New York Diesel Auto is one of our favorites due to its versatility – it’s good for any time of day when feeling social or having any kind of exciting activity planned!
Original Auto Sour Diesel
Original Auto Sour Diesel is a feminized autoflowering strain with an above-average 21% THC. This weed is best used in the morning because of how energizing it makes you feel during the day. Its flavor is complemented by an aromatic gasoline scent. While it may not seem too appetizing to some people, if you're looking for something potent, look no further! You can use this marijuana flower as part of your wake-n-bake routine. A favorite among avid gamers and those looking to collaborate on projects together, this weed will leave you feeling relaxed yet clear-headed enough to focus on whatever you need to do next.
Chem Beyond Diesel
Chem Beyond Diesel CBD is a highly sought-after strain that came in second at the prestigious Spannabis Cup in 2018. A cross between the Chemdawg strain from the US and a high-quality European Diesel, it offers an unbeatable ratio of CBD to THC at 1:1 or 2:1, along with an unmatched candy smell that comes across as sweet yet spicy. This particular weed offers both mental and physical benefits such as relieving anxiety, stress, and chronic pain.
Auto Blue Diesel
Auto Blue Diesel is an autoflowering plant developed from a mix of Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis strains, with Auto Biodiesel Mass and Auto Blueberry being the two main plants used in the crossbreeding process. Once complete, Auto Blue Diesel sprouted up – and became a true wonder plant for all those who tried it out. This strain’s high CBD levels and Sativa influence make it perfect for daytime use; there's no increased appetite or fatigue associated with this strain, which is why it’s so suitable for medicinal users.
Thanks to its genetic roots in auto-flowering Blueberry plants, this strain features that signature sweet blueberry flavor with notes of citrus without being too tart.
Bruce Banner #3
This ultra-dank bud is appropriately named after Bruce Banner of Marvel comics because of its heavy-hitting effects. With its 27% THC content, you’ll need just one toke to feel as mighty as Hulk, belting “woohoo” before getting serious. Sweet but tough, it's an excellent mix of both Sativa effects with lots of happy feelings and Indica lightness for perfect balance.
