A Fast-Acting Fuel Injection of Fervor
Rumor has it that NYC Diesel Feminized originated in the Big Apple, her seeds labeled as the best ever. Though it’s hard to say for certain, it seems her heritage can be traced back to landrace strains Mexican and Afghani, with a healthy serving of Sour Diesel in there to help create her fruity, fuel-like flavor.
It’s perhaps this illustrious background that’s led to this Sativa-dominant hybrid winning so many Cannabis Cup awards, though not all were first place.
Heavy on the head-highs, the serious cerebral effects of NYC Diesel Fem make for a potent and enlivening wake-and-bake, capable of jolting life back into even the most tired and fatigued toker.
As a morning strain, this cannabis can work more wonders than a cup of Joe - but might be stronger than expected, so maybe wait until that afternoon lull before lighting up. Her fast-acting, innovative and blissful effects will eventually wind down to a gentle but numbing sedation as her one-third Indica genetics present, and sure as anything these buds will ensure you sleep soundly.
For medicinal users, she’s not the strongest pain-reliever but holds her own at alleviating mild to moderate concerns including migraines and arthritis. This hybrid really shines as a psychological aid, as her uplifting properties make for a happier headspace for those suffering from anxiety, stress or depression.
An experienced hand is required to manage this massive marijuana, as NYC Diesel Feminized might be all-fem for your convenience, but is also humongous and requires ample support to thrive. Even so, her turnouts are spectacular, especially when grown outdoors.

The boost in energy of this ganja has you good-to-go for hours, since her high is unusually long-lasting. But eventually, as the vigor begins to die down, you’ll find a gently numbing sensation starts to relax you from limb to limb, easing away exhaustion until you’re ready for bed.
Medical Uses of NYC Diesel Feminized
A fan favorite in the cannabis community, NYC Diesel Feminized’s mood- and energy-boosting effects work to make her popular medicinal choie for physical maladies and mental ailments alike.
Stress, depression and anxiety can all be alleviated with a couple of hits of this herb, providing escape and reprieve from symptoms such as low mood, or intrusive negative thoughts.
For mild to moderate pain, the muscle-relaxing properties of NYC Diesel Fem can be utilized as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic, with a variety of applications for physical problems. Managing the pain of arthritis, glaucoma, muscle spasms, migraines and PMS, many in the medicinal marijuana (MMJ) community can vouch for her efficacy.
Like many strains, this ganja is good for increasing appetite, due to her strong munchies effect. These hunger pangs can make eating enjoyable again for those struggling with a lack of appetite, eating disorders or nausea as a side effect of chemotherapy. Since she’s an energy booster, NYC Diesel can also help those hindered by fatigue, increasing vigor to push through until bedtime.
Of course, NYC Diesel Feminized has some side effects, like most marijuana strains do. Overconsumption can lead to dry eyes and cottonmouth, though these are easily avoided by ensuring you remain hydrated before, during and after consuming this cannabis. Low and slow is the way to go.
Some with sensitivity to THC, or new consumers, might find that the potency of this herb is too much on first toke, and more extreme adverse effects can include headaches, dizziness and heightened anxiety or paranoia. Select another strain if you think this might apply to you.
Growing NYC Diesel Feminized Seeds
New York City is well-known across the globe for her towering buildings, so it makes sense that the plant named after her is a staggeringly large strain. Reaching up to a whopping 13 feet, NYC Diesel Feminized neither small nor easy to conceal, and if you’re growing her indoors, this should be your first consideration.
Ample vertical space is required for this massive mama to thrive, and to allow her pale green, wispy foliage and long, slender leaves to grow to their full potential.
Stunning as she is, this strain requires a fair amount of skill to manage successfully, as though her widely-spaced limbs are long, they’re not particularly sturdy under the weight of her glistening, trichome-laden nugs. Some support is required as she stretches, alongside plenty of feedings to ensure she can reach as high as she wishes to.
If you’re looking to enhance the terps (terpenes) and flavor-profile of this herb, then natural organic soil is the way to go when it comes to choosing a substrate. Topping during her vegging cycle can help to control her height and increase growth across the full canopy, and trimming away lower levels of leaves can help the nutrients you give her to make it into the colas.
Indoors, though she can stretch tall, the chances are she’ll mature to around 6 or 7 feet. NYC Diesel Fem will flower after 10 to 12 weeks, and if given the appropriate TLC will provide you with yields of around 1.63 ounces of buds per square foot.
Leaving her to grow to her true humongous size outdoors will reward you well, provided she’s grown in a warm and sunny environment. In the northern hemisphere, she can be harvested between the end of October and the beginning of November, and you should be able to reap about 22.9 ounces of her potent and pungent nugs per plant.
Like New York herself, NYC Diesel Feminized creates quite the impression, right from the moment you open a bag and inhale that unique and distinct aroma of fuel and citrus fruits.
Much like her namesake, one trip is never enough, and what really keeps tokers hooked on this herb is her energizing, enlivening and creative cerebral buzz, capable of awakening your mind and imagination within moments of taking a hit.
For fast-acting and surprisingly long-lasting relief from psychological ailments, NYC Diesel Fem does the trick nicely, lifting mood and removing negativity to alleviate stress and anxiety - though she also works well as a pain-reliever.
Growing this ganja isn’t exactly a walk in the park - though she’s tall as a tree herself. Newbies should avoid this one, as she requires some support for her lanky, light green limbs, and managing strains of this size takes experience to get right. Still, her size lends itself well to a hefty harvest, and indoors or out, NYC Diesel will have you bagging up plenty of pungent nugs.
