If you want to talk about dankenstein strains, then look no further than Blue City Diesel, or, as it's also referred to as, Blue Diesel. These strains take two beloved landrace cross strains and mix them together to create a delightfully balanced hybrid. It has a berry aroma, and its effects are quick-acting. This makes it ideal as a medicinal strain. Despite being slightly indica-dominant, Blue City Diesel does not leave you feeling lethargic or fatigued.

Blue City Diesel: Indica or Sativa?
Blue Diesel is neither an indica nor a sativa. It’s an Indica-dominant hybrid, with a split of 60/40. This makes it a balanced strain, which can be used to treat a number of different conditions. We will talk about these later on in the post. As a Dankenstein, Blue City Strain stays true to form: it was bred for high performance when it comes to both effects and taste. Speaking of which, Blue City Diesel tastes great! If you're someone who considers themselves a fan of the diesel tastes you'll enjoy this one! Berry notes accompany the traditional Diesel taste, which, again, makes it a strain adored by many. This strain has many different names, but the two main ones are Blue Diesel and Blue City Diesel.
Blue City Diesel Strain genetics
This strain was originally created by Breeder’s Choice. It brings together two much-loved strains in the cannabis community, and the end result couldn’t be better. The two strains brought together in Blue City Diesel are:
- NYC Diesel
Blueberry is an Indica-dominant strain, and NYC Diesel is a Sativa-dominant strain. Thus, the end result is a fantastically balanced hybrid strain.
Blue City Diesel THC percentage
The average Indica-dominant hybrid or indica contains around 12.5% THC. The average Blue City Diesel phenotype has 17% THC. The strongest that you can find this strain at is 23% THC, and this particular phenotype is likely to blow your socks off. This high THC percentage is useful for a number of different things, especially something like depression. Depression is very hard to treat, and so you need a high THC percentage as well as a balanced strain.
Blue City Diesel price
Blue City Diesel is a dankenstein strain, as mentioned previously. Luckily for us, one of the original breeders (Jordan of the Islands) offers these seeds on their website. This means that the price is driven down, as growers can buy the seeds and then sell the buds. However, the strain is still considered to be a mid-top shelf, so you’ll be paying at least $15 a gram, regardless of where you are in the world.
Blue City Diesel taste
The taste was the original reason for breeding this bud. The taste of this strain can only be fully appreciated after you grind it up and stick it into your flower vaporizer. If you do this, you’ll really be able to taste the berry and the diesel aromas that come through so clearly when you smell the buds. Blue City Diesel’s full taste profile is:
Blue City Diesel Strain oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
Blue City Diesel also makes a very good shatter, wax, or concentrate. This is because concentrate creators look for two things: taste and THC content. Blue City Diesel has an amazing taste and it has a fairly high THC content, which helps it turn into a fantastic concentrate. However, creating your own BHO (Butane Hash Oil) is considered dangerous. That is mainly because Butane is highly flammable, and some people have burnt their houses down attempting to create shatter. It’s better, and a lot safer, to simply travel to a country like North America where they have to shatter more readily available.
You can easily create edibles from any strain you like. There are two basic methods of doing this. Number one is to decarboxylate your weed in the oven and mix it with a fat or oil. Both of these are vital steps to making edibles. Without doing both of these first, your edibles will not work. The second is to use your Already Vaped Bud (AVB) from your vaporizer and mix it with a fat or oil. Already Vaped Bud is actually a perfectly decarboxylated weed.

|Blue City Diesel General Effects||
Blue City Diesel Medical Effects
Blue City Diesel Effects Negative
|Happy 100%||Stress Relief 100%||
|Relaxed 85%||Depression 97%||
Dry Eyes 25%
|Focused 85%||Pain Relief 80%||Dizziness 20%|
|Uplifted 75%||Lack of Appetite 75%||Headaches 20%|
|Euphoric 55%||Fatigue 45%||
As an Indica-dominant hybrid sitting at a 60/40 split, this strain is fantastic for stress and depression. Depression, as mentioned previously, is very hard to treat. Thus, it needs the euphoric head high of a Sativa mixed with the relaxing, warm hug of an indica. This is not a treatment for everyone and is very dependent on how you actually react to cannabis. However, if you know that cannabis works for you as a medicine, then definitely give Blue City Diesel a try for depression.

The flowering time of Blue Diesel is 7-9 weeks. It’s highly recommended that you leave it for the full 9 weeks to get the full THC content and flavor.
