Redecan’s Lilac Diesel is a sativa-dominant flower with genetics that cross four strains including Silver Lemon Haze, Forbidden Fruit, Citral Glue, and NYC Cherry Pie.
This cultivar’s terpene profile includes alpha-pinene, limonene and myrcene which creates an aroma and flavour profile compared to spicy berries with hints of pine and citrus fruits. In terms of appearance, Redecan describes the nugs as being dense with lilac undertones and very light purple hue to the trichome layer.
But how does this compare to gassy competitors like Pure Sunfarms Jet Fuel Gelato or other sativa’s from this brand like Redecan’s Outlaw strain?

Lilac Diesel arrived like all previous Redecan products – industry standard black plastic container. We popped off the security lid and immediately took notice of how very strong the aroma was… which has historically been an issue with Redecan. The best way to describe it would be an overpowering musky floral combined with a pungent carbonated gas which actually smelt delicious. Definitely much better then we were expecting.
We dumped out the contents and noticed like previous Redecan products this one did not include a humidity shield. As a result the buds had dried out but also seemed to have a decent amount of leaf that should have been trimmed. For the most part, the nugs were tiny and a drab olive green, however they did feature a nice thick trichome layer.
The flavour profile for this product was nearly as intense as it’s smell, however after inhaling a few times we developed an opinion and then decided to move the flavour a tick under the aroma in terms of strength. There is certainly a musky floral front end which is balanced with a gassy diesel back end making it harsh (due to dryness) but very flavourful bud.
Listed with 17.2% THC content and a price tag of $23.65 for 3.5 grams, unfortunately the experience was not at the same level as the aroma and flavour. To make things worse, Lilac Diesel seems to be another incorrectly labelled product from Redecan. The package says “Hybrid Sativa-Dominant”; however 3 of the 4 parents used to create it are actually indica-dominant strains. In terms of the actual high, we’d describe it as average at best as it produced a light mental cloud which could weaken focus while also creating a moderately strong body high. For the money this one is not bad, but the aroma and flavour are the best parts very much like Redecan’s Black Cherry Punch.
