What is diesel cannabis?

Diesel cannabis cultivars express a distinct fuel or gassy aroma and flavor. Diesel strains have a reputation for being potent and for providing an uplifting experience. 

A cultivar’s terpene profile is largely responsible for its aroma, and diesel strains are usually high in myrcene and caryophyllene, but some diesel strains may have other terpenes dominant. 

Sour Diesel is the most common of these strains, but others include Diesel Dough, Blackberry Diesel, and Jet Fuel.
