Lilac Diesel

from Smyth Cannabis Co.

Reminiscent of springtime lemonade with a twist of orange and lime.

A zesty strain, with ancestry from Ethos Genetics in Colorado, Lilac Diesel makes its way to the East Coast at Smyth Cannabis Company.

Get ready to pucker! This sour flower is ultra-lemony and hits you with a citrus punch straight out of the package. Despite the initial zesty notes, Lilac Diesel also somehow manages a delightful and savory aftertaste with a smooth and complex finish – similar to a five-course meal. As a quite diverse and interesting strain, its numerous eclectic genetics – Silver Lemon Haze x Forbidden Fruit x NYC Cherry Pie x Citral Glue – create an enticing, sharp and potent terpene profile. 

Smyth Cannabis Company’s packaging adds a cool vibe as well, with their graffiti-style logo in all-white on a blacked-out jar, giving it a high-end yet approachable vibe. The jar is easy to unscrew and allows you to get right to the product without the excessive protections found in some other pot packaging. And you could absolutely use this jar again for your storage needs.

The Lilac Diesel buds are spiky, bright and dense. Colored with a vibrant yellow hue throughout, this strain is reminiscent of springtime lemonade with a twist of orange and lime. Shiny trichomes decorate the flower in a full-coverage dusting, making it the best kind of sticky. Breaking into a bud gives off a robust and savory scent, which is reminiscent of a “Chem”-style terpene profile when smoking. The gassiness is experienced on the exhale, leaving you with a full-bodied, well-rounded flavor.

Breaking up evenly with the perfect moisture content, this batch was well-cured by a cultivator that knew what they were doing. The joints practically roll themselves, with the sticky trichomes holding together compactly, but not too tight. You should end up with a perfect burn that keeps the J going for a long time. 

The effects of Lilac Diesel are happy and energizing. The tangy zing of limonene produces a giddy hum of excitement and fun, making it the perfect strain for early summertime activities and getting you out of the winter blues.
