Triple Diesel carries high levels of humulene (hops and pine), limonene (citrus) and beta-caryophyllene (cloves) terpenes, which combine for one of the more pungent Diesel aromas both in the grow and after harvest. But the Strawberry Diesel influence gives the strain a fruity sweetness similar to that of Cherry Diesel, or a small splash of Strawberry Cough.
I’m not saying you can never smoke too much weed — smoking is still bad, mmkay? — but if I had to puff one strain for the rest of my life, Sour Diesel would be a strong candidate. The popular sativa’s lasting, uplifting high and rubbery stank make it an easy choice for the novice and experienced alike, so naturally, the Diesel family tree has branched out to create to a number of different strains. But how many of them carry the genetics of three Diesels in one?
Flavor: Much like its aroma, Triple Diesel’s flavor is dominated by tart flavors of rubber and skunky notes of gas. Those sour notes aren’t quite as strong as in other Diesel strains, though, with sweet, berry-like flavors — almost like tart cherries — providing a sugary twist.
A threesome of Sour Diesel, New York City Diesel and Strawberry Diesel, Triple Diesel (or Triple Sour Diesel, in some circles) is a regular chip off the ol’ block, giving Diesel fanboys so much gas that their dicks might explode at first sniff. Like rollin’ coal on that weak-ass Prius as you mob down I-25 in your lifted truck? Triple Diesel, baby. If you don’t like it, then fuck you.
Looks: Denser than those of the original, Triple Diesel’s cone- and football-shaped nugs have compact calyxes, giving it the look of an indica if not for its lime-green glow and bright-orange pistils.
Effects: This is where Triple Diesel tends to differ from its gassy relatives. Unlike Sour or NYC diesels, Triple Diesel’s high isn’t very focused, making users blissfully unaware of how distracted they are by each new shiny object. The effects are more about fun than focus, providing relaxation and intrigue for regular users, and they’re perfect for movies and channel surfing. Medical benefits have included treating minor pain, sleeping and eating disorders, and stress.

I hear Triple Diesel can be quite productive in small doses, but all I experience is a brain melt, similar to what I experience after mixing several strains together in one bowl. While the high helped my stress and stoked my curiosity, I can see how the effects could be debilitating or make users with lower tolerances over-anxious.
Fun fact: You can never have too much Sour Diesel. Don’t believe me? You’re about to read the word “diesel” so often that you’ll swear you were wearing a trucker hat.
