The Raspberry Diesel feminised sativa-dominant hybrid is a cross of an old Cherry Afghan with Sour Diesel. High yielding strain, especially outdoors, and high resin production makes this a good cannabis strain from which to make extracts.
Vigorous and fast vegetative growth means that this strain transitions into the flowering period in double-quick time. Its thin fan leaves and long inter-nodal length allows for deep light penetration through the canopy facilitating secondary growth of inner bud sites. Trellising or ties are strongly recommended to support its long spiralling bud sites which display rock-hard raspberry-shaped nugs in the latter stages. Good resistance to all kinds of pests and diseases.
Indoors this plant will finish in 63 - 68 days of flowering, with red and purple colours appearing at the end of week 7, with yields of between 375 - 500 gr/m2. Outdoors these plants will grow to be 2 - 3 meters tall or even more with harvest yields of between 1 and 3 kilos dried weight per plant. In the northern hemisphere Raspberry Diesel will be fully mature in the second half of October.
The buds are highly resinous and there is a very good bud to leaf ratio making manicuring quick and easy. Flavours are a tasty mix of sweet and sour with the sweet berry attack giving way to a smooth aniseed and petrol/fuel finish. THC production is 18% - 21% with low CBD of 0.1%. The effect is quite energising and functional for daytime use evolving into a nice relaxed body high.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
