Our take on the classic Strawberry Diesel; Deez Nuggs started life as Illuminauto #37 and she holds a special place in Brad’s heart, being the first strain he ever grew solo on the farm after joining Mephisto Genetics in 2017.
Deez Nuggs as a concept was born almost 7 years ago when Strawberry Nuggets and Orange Diesel were in the early project stages, we had ‘DEEZ NUGGS’ marked on our project board from the very start. For her initial release, we used pollen from a selected batch of our F3 parent plants, Strawberry Nuggets labelled ‘Gyal dem ting’ and Orange Diesel marked ‘Big gyal’. We don’t normally selectively breed for our Illuminauto strains, we usually pick strains that are what we might term our ‘standard examples’ so that our F1 crosses don’t spring too many surprises on us when they’re grown out. But there was so much excitement about finally making this cross, specially selected a Mitch’s Pick of each variety only seemed fair. Now that she’s finally back and available again, we can’t recommend this strain enough for all lovers of cannabis cultivation.
Deez Nuggs typically runs as a squat and stout cultivar, some growers can coax a medium-sized bush out of her, but we like to think of Deez Nuggs in the Mephisto HQ as one of our ultimate head stash varieties. To max out yield they can be positioned at higher densities than usual to create an even canopy, absolutely riddled with chunky nuggsites.
She can be topped and LST’d however we’ve found the best way is to just periodically leaf tuck during the vegetative stage to encourage the secondaries. Where Deez Nuggs really gets on song, however, is she’s a proper terpene dream, emitting beautiful aromas; a magnificent concoction of gas, fruit, orange and strawberries all smashed together. Talking of smashing, Deez Nuggs ranks incredibly high on our scale as an outright resin factory, she’s amazing to wash or squash and returns generously. We’ve been itching to progress Deez Nuggs from the F1 Illuminauto from a few years ago to the F3 Limited so more customers can experience her as she’s certified primo top-shelf chronic.
