As you might have guessed from its name, this strain was bred in Oregon by Homegrown Natural Wonders. It is a result of crossing the NYC Diesel strain with the Blackberry strain. A 90/10 Indica hybrid, has an offputting diesel fragrance. The plants have large flowers that adhere to each other in a round shape. The leaves are forest green in color with deep purple undertones. They are covered in bright orange pistils and white glittering trichomes.

Growing Oregon Diesel
Cultivated initially in the Pacific Northwest, it is no surprise that this strain thrives in cooler and wet outdoor climate compared to other strains. They can be grown indoors and outdoors as long as the needed temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors are provided. Their flowers can get heavy and large, so the regular topping is required to ensure the lower nodes get the same amount of nutrients. With a shorter growing season, growers can enjoy this delicious strain in as early as 7 to 8 weeks.
