Chemdawg is an Indica dominant hybrid. The strain has risen out of obscurity to become a pretty big name on the cannabis scene. Not only does it have a distinctive profile of smells, flavors, and effects, but it’s also helped create a handful of other super popular hybrid strains as well.
This one’s usually pretty strong. While most Indica strains come in around 12.5% THC, most Chemdawg buds average somewhere between 15% and 20% THC.
The effects produced by Chemdawg are pretty much what you’d expect from Indica dominant hybrid. A powerful body high is the most pronounced effect. After a few puffs, you’ll feel calm, relaxed, sedated, and you might end up couch locked.
The powerful body high is complemented by Chemdawg’s Sativa side. Most users also feel a nice head high that can produce sparks of creativity and sometimes some slight psychedelic effects. The result is a complete high that will leave you relaxed, happy, and uplifted.
Scent & Flavor
Chemdawg smells earthy and diesel-y. Some users describe it as slightly spicy with a very clear herb-like profile.
Expect to experience cotton mouth, dry eyes, and the munchies. Some people get hit pretty hard by the head high side of this strain and end up feeling dizzy and light headed. And every once in a while, people feel anxious and paranoid.
The hard-hitting body high makes Chemdawg a good choice for afternoon, evening, or night time use. If you’re using it recreationally, use it for times when you’re done with the day’s responsibilities. It’s a perfect choice for a mellow hang out with friends, or for evenings when you’re settling down for some creative project.
Medical users can get some pretty effective relief from aches and pains when using this strain. Chemdawg can also help reduce the effects of mood and anxiety disorders, and can contribute to improving peoples’ appetites.
Chemdawg’s genetic background is the stuff of legend. The story is that back in the day a couple of hippies started trading seeds and buds back and forth with each other. After harvesting and planting seeds for a few generations, the outcome was the Indica dominant Chemdawg we all know and love today.
Chemdawg can be a little high maintenance, so it’s best for more experienced growers. Be prepared to fight off mildew and gray mold. Chemdawg plants do best with less than 60% humidity. Try growing with organic food for best results. These plants will flower around 60 days, and they produce the most buds when they’re pruned back regularly.
