Diesel Drift by Heavyweight Seeds is a cross between much loved New York Diesel and their own Fruit Punch, which is itself a cross between Skunk, Haze and Northern Lights. This strain is another “new-school” Sativa dominant (about 70%), which delivers everything you’d expect from a traditional Sativa, but in a rather smaller package.
As you would expect from the genetics, the taste of Diesel Drift is a combination of fruit and diesel. It’s certainly fresh and crisp with plenty of Haze zinginess. The odour is mainly citrus but it still has a touch of fuel to give it a bit of an edge.
With 18% THC, Diesel Drift is more in line with what you would expect from a modern Indica than with the super-high-THC strains being produced today, but the big difference is that high-THC Indicas tend to provide both a modern, Sativa-style head high and the traditional Indica full-body stone, which can be great at night, but isn’t necessarily ideal in the daytime, when you need to get moving quickly. Diesel Drift is therefore a good choice for people who want fast and effective relief from physical pain and also mental conditions such as stress and anxiety, without causing drowsiness.
Even though 18% THC would be classed as moderate by modern standards, it’s still enough to deliver a euphoric high, which is full of creativity and inspiration. This is followed by an enjoyable body buzz, which provides relaxation without sending you into a stupor.
In terms of height, Diesel Drift is very reasonable for a strain with this level of Sativa genetics. Indoors it will typically grow within a range of 90 cm to 1.5M and outdoors it will usually grow within a range of 1.5M to 2M. This may be a bit on the high side for total beginners, which is why we’ve classed this strain as having moderate grow difficulty. Aside from its desire to stretch into a small tree, this is actually a pretty robust strain. The only important point to remember is that good ventilation is a must – assuming you prefer to avoid your growing space being filled with the smell of diesel.
Diesel Drift is also fairly quick for a strain which is mostly Sativa. Indoors it will finish flowering in just 10 weeks and outdoors it will be ready in early to mid-October. Indoors you can expect up to 500g/m2 and outdoors over 500g per plant.
