As the story goes, the NYC Diesel strain originates from a bagseed that Soma came across while living in New York. Many people will say that the seed was a phenotype of Sour Diesel, but it’s possible that it was actually the original Diesel strain or another strain with a similar terpene profile.
With that being said, Soma is rumored to have crossed this bagseed with Shantibaba‘s popular Afghani X Hawaiian male plant.
