You have to be pretty medicated to sit through a re-run of Barney, but then again, he was purple, green and always in a great mood. Look at his eyes, for crying out loud! There’s no doubt he has back problems picking up things with those tiny arms. We found a dead ringer, Purple Diesel, at RiNo Supply Company in Denver, even if RiNo stands for the River North neighborhood and not his distant relative. If you thought that dude was sweet, this Diesel cross is like a bag of all-purple Skittles in the bottom of a glass of grape Kool-Aid. Much darker than the dino, the purple flakes smattered across the bud range from regal to nearly black, with a fair mix of bright orange hairs. We only truly found the Diesel upon inhalation, when we were ready to get out of the office and hit the playground. Mentally active and creative, we could have gone for craft time if it wasn’t for the great physical energy that came along for the ride. Reviewers loved this strain early in the day, and it lead to particularly large lunch for some dealing with nausea and gastrointestinal issues. We love you, Purple Diesel, and you clearly love us.
