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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
