You might be probably wondering on how diversified is the marijuana strains in the current times? Some of the experts have admitted that they too, cannot determine the new strains being produced a year after year.
One may not exactly quantify the strains, but to assure the extensive diversification of Marijuana Strains, you can take a look on how a single variation of a Diesel Strain bear many fruits and created families of next-generation diesel strains in the world.
Knowing the Diesel Strain
There is a mainstream theory that the Diesel Strains came from Sativa Strains, which are known to have strong THC volumes that can make you stay awake, active and creative in prolonged hours. One must remember that the aromatic property of smelling like a diesel fuel is a good indication that the strain which you will use is indeed strong and can give a cerebral effect which you can’t feel with the other strains.
Sativa strains are known to be the Cannabis plants who grow in the warmer regions with longer days and rigid seasons. They primarily grow near the equator, where the sunlight shines directly to the exposed lands. Its leaves are slender, allowing the free air to pass through its external system and reduce the possibility of mold infestation. Its height is the tallest on all existing strains anywhere in the Earth, due to the amount of sunshine being received daily.
Its flowers and buds, however, are completely covered with whitish to silvery thick resins that protect these parts from any foreign intervention. These are the most sensitive parts of the plant; therefore, they have to be protected more than the other spots.

The smell goes like fuel because of the intensity of the plant’s THC. Remember that the stronger and higher the THC volume is inside a plant, the better the chances of acquiring the said aroma and taste.
