Mental Holiday… Acid is a 60% indica hybrid that is our popular take on the classic NYC
Diesel. This is a cannabis strain that is fairly easy to manage in the grow room and rewarding in its production.
Paradise Seeds’ Acid builds on the great taste and effect of the original NYC Diesel, with the addition of genetics from the Paradise vault to create an enhanced indica dominant Diesel with more potency than the original and enhanced yield potential.
New York City Diesel arrived on the scene in the early 2000s, as a cross between landrace strains from Mexico and Afghanistan. It is known for its cerebral, relaxing and pain relieving effects.
Acid was one of the earliest Paradise Seeds cannabis strains that gave a distinct twist to a popular original. A Diesel mother plant was crossed with our favorite Dutch genetics to enhance the indica element in this hybrid cannabis plant. This produces a more intense relaxation effect and increased strength.
The name Acid was inspired by the taste but also by the effect, which can often bring with it enhanced sensory experience and a shift in consciousness.
The taste and smell, which inspired the name Acid, is specific – metallic and slightly petrol – in keeping with the distinctive flavor of Sour Diesel.
Acid is extremely fruity in the grow room and the bouquet of this cannabis plant is one of the characteristics which makes it so appealing to many growers. The terpene profile is a wonderful balanced mix of Ocimene, Terpinolene, Limonene and Pinene. Once dried the buds retain a hint of fruit. but with an accompanying diesel/metallic taste which was prominent enough to inspire the name of this strain.
Difficulty level: Medium
Indoors: Acid cannabis seeds produce a strain that is an excellent performer. It will achieve a manageable height (approximately 110 cm), producing branches that bulge with dense colas, bringing a powerful fruity aroma to your grow room as harvest time approaches. A word of warning – make sure your filters are functioning well to ensure the overpowering aroma of fruit remains inside your grow room.
Outdoors: Acid will grow well in most regions, including those with a more moderate climate. However, it will really thrive in the warmth and sun of more Mediterranean conditions where its sativa genes will see it stretch for the sun (approximately 200 cm in height) and possibly even exceed our suggested yields.
Acid is a cannabis strain that has a reputation for growing big and producing an excellent harvest with the right management. Buds are dense, heavy and often display a pointedness in form.
Indoor Yield: 400g/m²
Outdoor Yield: 700g per plant
Recreational: The effects of Acid are impressive. Expect to feel as light as an angel and your day to take an unexpected shine. Definitely good for inspiration and creative thoughts. Some users commend its energizing qualities – the perfect tonic if you need some get up and go and a sense of fun on your night out.
Medical: Acid has been praised for its good medical qualities. At its core is a deep lying relaxation which can help to ease the symptoms of physical pain and depression and lift the body.
Acid cannabis seeds are suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L./ 50º s.L.. This plant finishes at the end of October outdoors (n.L.) and between 9 – 10 weeks inside. Estimated yield is 400 g per m² indoors / 700 g per plant outdoors.
I am always looking diversify my collection of Sativa dominants. A functionally creative high with clarity is a god send to meet my needs both medicinally and as a writer. I previously avoided ‘Acid’ on name alone, anticipating the mind-bending high of other varietals touting psychedelic potential. However, this strain is a cross between an unknown Dutch and an excellent Diesel phenotype. Far from the ego-crushing potential of Jack f6 or LSD. Here we see Diesel’s confident swagger brought center stage, but smoothed out with a slathering of sympathetic awareness-presumably an influence of the selected Dutch mother.
The Paradise Seed’s advertisement Acid’s grape fruit aroma, a sweet citrus that matures when given attention. Resting on the surface is a dark spice, a softer version of fuel’s skunk. The smoke introduces pleasantly with full-bodied hits that remains smooth and packed with a candied grapefruit that rests on the palate. A deep flavor, it has the potential to fill the nostrils with the spice of mature fruits, especially for those vaporizing at optimal temperatures. The buds can form densely, filling out completely with plump calyx and pungent resin. To experience a full spectrum of terpenes, It is well worth it to break open the nugs of this varietal.
This breed is definatly a fast grower. It is leaving in the dust 8 other plants of the same genetics. Amazing.
Hi folks. I run this beauty since it hit the market. And as a true Diesel Lover i place that Acid version in my top 3 . I run a 20 plants per square meter and the aroma was undescriptable (fuel mix whit grape candy?). Carbon filter is not an option here. Doing a sea of green in 2 liters pots give me a respectable pound of head buds . All whit the Diesel multicolours buds leafs at the end of flowering. A minimum of 30 days of curing is to me satisfying but i cured 4 mounths. My buds have spear shape but dense and heavy. To end up whit one of the most pleasent sativa hybrid to inhale. The potency is higher than ak-47 and white widow …! To me its a keeper. I rate this strain overall 8.5 on 10.
Sticky Fingers –
Living in Colorado I’ve had them all (diesels). Acid is a horrible name but regardless of the name what a beautiful plant. I started three seeds and everyone of them germinated and all three phenotypes where amazing. Which made it extremely hard to pick a mother. The phenotype I picked didn’t have the best bud structucture but it had the diesel flavor and smell I was looking for. I grew this strain with Botanicare nutrients in coco and coco nuggets under a 600 watt hps. I found this strain to get a little stressed from the light so be careful not to let get too close to the light source. Other then that this strain clones very easy and love regular strength nutrients. I harvested at 10 weeks and found that extra week really made a difference in weight and looks…….. The taste of this is a Diesel with a zesty fruity punch. I really love this one thanks Paradise Seeds.
