Chunky Diesel is a marijuana strain that was created by Ganja Rebel Seed Co. It is a cross between Deep Chunk (an indica strain) with the popular Sour Diesel strain (a sativa classic). This highly resinous strain has a scent that is reminiscent of roasted espresso beans with earthy undertones. It is a sativa dominant strain with 70% sativa and 30% indica.
This high sativa strain gives a moderate cerebral hit that is energizing but not overwhelming. As much as you will be in a euphoric state, you will still be able to go about your usual activities. This makes it a favorable day time strain.
Chunky Diesel has dark green buds that are covered in sticky trichrome layers that give it the appearance of snowflakes. The nugs are hard to break by hand; a blender would come in handy for a home prep. When crushed, the nugs give off a chocolatey, coffee and diesel scent. The mind high is simply uplifting while the body high is relaxing. This is not the strain to give you a couch-lock.
This strain has shown great potential in the treatment of mood disorders, depression, fatigue and stomach upsets. This strain will also induce the munchies.
This is a sativa dominant hybrid with 70% sativa and 30% indica.
The THC and CBD levels are not known.
Chunky Diesel is a breed created by Ganja Rebel Seed Co. for Cresco Labs. The strain was created by crossing Deep Chunk and Sour Diesel strains.
The Chunky Diesel strain is favorable for new patients wishing to dip their toes in the emerging world of cannabis treatment. The effects are very much balanced both on the body and on the mind. After taking a few puffs, the patient may get a little bit light headed, but just enough to make you want to grab a seat. Soon after this will transform to an energizing mind lift that will increase your focus and creativity. You may begin making sense of weird things; this is where creativity is birthed. Your inhibitions may also be let loose; in a social setting you may be more talkative than you are used to. This is what makes this strain a wonderful conversation starter. The effects will also spread to your body from your neck line down to your toes. Expect to experience a deep sense of body relaxation that should last for a couple of hours.
This strain will not leave you feeling heavy and lethargic.

Like with many other cannabis strains, patients have reported some negative effects after taking Chunky Diesel. A few minutes into toking and your eyes will begin to turn red. Other than the loss of aesthetics, you have nothing much to worry about.
Tetrahydrocannabinol causes the blood vessels in your eyes to dilate meaning that there will be increased blood flow to the eyes. After the THC has cleared from your system, your eyes will revert back to their usual color. This same mechanism is what has triggered research into the use of marijuana in the treatment of glaucoma.

- Dry Mouth
- Dry Eyes
- Red Eyes
