Lineage of Purple Diesel

Different breeders and growers have cultivated their own versions of the strain by mixing Sour Diesel with various Kush strains. Though the strain's original creators and process are still coated in mystery, Purple Diesel is quickly becoming a rising star in the American cannabis scene.

Though the original breeders of the strain are unconfirmed, multiple sources accredit Bodhi Seeds with Purple Diesel's limited production. The hybrid is a cross between SR17 Purple Kush  or Pre-98 Bubba Kush and a Sour Diesel variety. Despite the strain's name, it's more common to have slight hints of purple rather than a deep violet coat. Purple Diesel nugs are often covered with a crisp layer of trichomes. Most often, Purple Diesel bud will be green and have reddish-orange hairs.

Though the Bodhi Seeds' version of the strain is hard to come by, other seed companies have dabbled in growing versions of Purple Diesel.

Growing Purple Diesel
