8 Best Diesel Weed Strains

8 best diesel weed strains

Marijuana users have different reasons for choosing different cannabis strains. For instance, they may like how marijuana smells or tastes. You can also choose different options based on taste or smell. Some of them are fruity, skunky, or diesel-like. It all depends on your taste.

We will discuss diesel strains in this post. We will outline your best options when searching for diesel weed strains. So let’s get to it without wasting any more time. 

Terpenes that Smell like Diesel

Marijuana’s smell and taste are defined by terpenes. The concentration of each of these chemicals determines how aromatic marijuana smells.

What terpenes are responsible for the diesel smell? There is no terpene in diesel weed that produces the characteristic grassy smell. There are many different terpenes in diesel weed. Myrcene, limonene, beta-caryophyllene, and pinene are highly concentrated in diesel cannabis. These are the major contributors to the diesel-like smell in most diesel strains.

Interestingly, the best diesel strains are also the strongest strains of cannabis. Most diesel strains have THC levels above 20%. While most diesel weed strains are sativas or sativa-leaning hybrids, some are indica diesel.

You can opt for diesel Indica or Sativa strains if you want your weed to smell good. No matter the intended effect, you always get your preferred flower.

Best Diesel Strains

It is possible to classify many marijuana strains as diesel strains. Each strain has the same concentration level, however. Below is the ultimate list of diesel cannabis strains to choose from:

Sour Diesel

Diesel weed strains like Sour Diesel are available from the West coast of the United States. These strains produce a large amount of resin.

Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis plant consisting of 90% Sativa. Chemdawg and Super Skunk are the parents of this diesel weed. The diesel-like odour and potency are traits that it inherited. It has a THC level of about 19-25% but can reach 30%.

Myrcene, limonene, pinene, and beta-caryophyllene are all found in sour diesel. The terpenes give it its distinctive gas-like smell. Limonene, in particular, is responsible for the intense citrus aroma and taste of diesel marijuana.

Cherry Diesel

Cherry Diesel gets its smell from diesel terpenes, as the name suggests. This strain is attractive due to its aroma. If you are looking for a diesel strain, this is undoubtedly one of the best options.

Cherry Diesel is a nearly balanced hybrid created by crossing Chery OG and Turbo Diesel. The cherry-forward flavour of this strain is complemented with sweet diesel undertones. A THC value of 24% makes it equally potent as other marijuana strains.

The effects of Cherry Diesel are both Indica and Sativa. The high from this weed is uplifting and energizing, just what you need for socializing and doing creative work at home.


Chemdawg or Chemdog has a THC level ranging from 16-22%, making it one of the most potent diesel strains. Chemdog can’t be talked about without mentioning its terpene profile, even though its composition remains a secret. After all, its genetics speak for themselves. A cross between Sour Diesel and OG Kush produces Chemdog.

Despite being slightly indica dominant, Chemdawg still results in a gassy aroma. It is an extremely potent strain, and it smells strongly of wet earth and sour diesel. You can smell the aroma from a long distance.

You’ll experience a euphoric high followed by a sharpening of your mind with Chemdawg. It may be necessary for tasks requiring creativity and concentration.

Death Star

Death Star contains myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene as diesel terpenes. The strain is a cross between Sensi Star and Sour Diesel. Its genetics explains why it is ranked among the best diesel strains.

‘Death Star’ is one of the strongest marijuana strains. Its THC content is approximately 16-22%. The flower is purple, but its fragrance is high and intense. In addition to its fragrance, it has a similar flavour.

Within minutes, Death Star relaxes your entire body. After a long and stressful day, this strain may be suitable for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Strawberry Sour Diesel

As the name clearly states, this is one of the best sour weed strains you will find on the market. The Strawberry Sour Diesel strain is also similar to Sour Diesel, number one on this list.

This strain is a cross between Sour Diesel and Strawberry Cough, characterized by high potency and 22% THC content. The flavours are intensely berry and citrusy sour with a fuel undertone. A complex sour diesel flavour profile will also feature a savoury combination.

As a Sativa-dominant hybrid, Strawberry Sour Diesel produces an energetic and motivating high.

Original Glue

A cross of Chocolate Diesel with Chems Sister and Sour Dubb gave rise to Original Glue #4, an Indica-dominant hybrid strain. There is no doubt that this is the most potent flower on this list, with a THC content of about 30%. Don’t bother trying this strain if you’re new to marijuana.

Original Glue has a heavy, intense aroma with a dank diesel flavour and aroma undertone.

In addition to its body-melting effects, Original Glue is one of the best strains for sleeping. You get a blow straight to the head before you drop down into a deep state of relaxation. When you are used to high levels of mental stimulation, this is your best diesel strain.


Although its name does not reveal its diesel nature, its history reveals all. A hybrid resulting from a cross of NYC Diesel and Big Buddha Cheese, Chiesel is a sativa-dominant variety. Chiesel reaches a THC level of 28% among the most potent diesel strains.

The coffee-diesel flavour of Chiesel is sweet and nutty. Similar to its aroma, it also smells like cheese and spices.

The first thing you notice about diesel weed is its euphoria in your brain. If you plan to go on a hike, you may want to consider diesel weed.

Chemdawg Sour Diesel

Despite coming last on our list of the best diesel cannabis, Chemdawg Sour Diesel should have been higher up. With a THC level between 18 and 26%, it is a hybrid with a slightly sativa-like potency resulting from the cross of Chemdawg D and Sour Diesel.

Chemicals and lemons are the flavours of Chemdawg Sour Diesel. Its main aromas are pungent fuel, earthy, lemony, and piney. Its flavour also doesn’t stray too far from its scent.

The effect of this strain is an energizing, relaxing, and uplifting experience. With this strain, you get the best of both worlds.
