Chemdawg strain, referred to as Chemdog, is one of the oldest cannabis strains, with a near balance between Indica and Sativa (55% Indica and 45% Sativa). Its origin is still a mystery, with many people believing that its parents are Thai and Nepalese. Whatever the origin, it still remains to be the most potent cannabis with a THC value of about 20%. It has served as parents to many other famous cannabis strains, such as Sour Diesel and OG Kush.
Chendawg cannabis strain produces medium-sized buds that are long and tapered. They possess a distinct characteristic that is not common of either Indica or Sativa leaning hybrids. The plant’s foliage consists of spring green leaves with white trichomes, making it appear white. It produces sticky flowers that are decorated with orange pistils.
Cultivation of Chemdawg strains is not for the newbies. Experience is required to care for the plant, which should be constantly monitored to keep mildew and mold at bay. It can be grown indoors and outdoors, but indoor cultivation is recommended because it becomes easier to control growth conditions. It grows up to about 5 feet tall. Therefore, pruning is required to maintain a manageable size. The yield expected after 9-10 weeks is between 65 to 75 grams per square foot.
Chemdawg has a strong smell of sour diesel and wet earth. The scent can be detected as far as one mile away, making growers deploy odor-control measures. With proper curing, the flower tastes sour, with exhales tasting much of ammonia.
The euphoric high of this strain starts by disorienting your mind, followed by the sharpening of the mind. It activates sensory nerves, making it an ideal treat if you are about to handle tasks that require creativity. Many stoners have also reported feeling more relaxed and sedated, with near-zero couchlock effects. Due to these positive effects, Chemdawg has been the remedy for PTSD, anxiety, stress, pain, depression, insomnia, and many others.
