Let’s face it, one of the more therapeutic aspects of cannabis can be the mere flavor and taste of the herb itself. Lab tests show just the smell of cannabis can lighten moods and calm people. For those flavor-first connoisseurs, there are few things finer than the award-winning Yogi Diesel, an exclusive strain available at Elemental Wellness in San Jose. This is a sativa-dominant phenotype of the worldwide smash hit Diesel, and it took Second Place in the Bay Area High Times Cannabis Cup. Sourced in Los Angeles around 2005, Yogi mixes Diesel parent Chemdawg with an unknown, high-vigor offspring. Yogi is lighter and shaggier like a sativa than many cuts of Chemdawg or OG Kush. The smell is a complex mix of light, minty pine, herbaceous pepper and OG dank. A flavor powerhouse, Yogi Diesel’s sourness and peppery taste further appear in its smoke. Patients report that this potent hybrid provides a mix of energy as well as pain-relief.
