The independent voice of Denver since 1977
Triple Diesel is also about three times harder to find in Denver than most gassy strains. I’ve seen it at Kaya Cannabis, Pure Dispensaries, Seed & Smith and Trenchtown, as well as at Universal Herbs in concentrate form. Kaya, Pure and Seed & Smith all provide affordable versions, but the best bang for your buck is at Trenchtown, which breeds a Triple Diesel with more of an OG influence that doesn’t make your mind go blank. It’s a must-try for anyone who likes Diesels or OGs.
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.
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.
Smell: Those expecting that trademark aroma of rubber and gasoline can rest easy, as Triple Diesel checks off each box for lovers of Diesel and Chemdawg strains. However, Triple Diesel also has a sharp sweetness, reminiscent of Fun Dip or Pixy Sticx, with a subtle fruity back end.
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.
