Chem Dog Marijuana Strain
Indica Dominant Hybrid
Chem Dog (also known as Chemdawg) is an almost perfectly balanced Indica Dominant Hybrid that has developed quite the name for itself over the years because of its distinct smell mysterious origin, ambiguous genetics and the plethora of successful crosses the strain has produced; Chemdawg has practically secured itself a permanent place in the cannabis hall of fame.
The original source of powerhouse strains like Sour Diesel and OG Kush, Chemdog is known for its distinct, diesel-like aroma. Pungent and sharp, you’ll be able to smell this hybrid from a mile away.
Chemdog delivers on both fronts, a clear cerebral high drives creativity while a stony, sleepy body high fights insomnia and relaxes the muscles. This strain has THC levels up to 19%, meaning it’s more potent than most. It has a powerful spicy, plant-like taste and smell with a hint of diesel. This strain is helpful for anxiety, pain, depression, ADHD, migraines, arthritis and PMS.
Chem Dog Aroma, Flavor, Appearance
The first thing that hits you with Chem Dog is the smell; think eye-watering pungency with notes of chemicals and diesel, and you may get somewhere close to the power of Chem Dog. The earthy notes coupled with the diesel-like scent makes for a seriously musky strain, which you will likely either love or hate!
As for the way it looks, Chem Dog is no wilting flower. With the potential to grow pretty tall, boasting long and tapered, medium-sized buds, it is indeed a sight to behold! The leaves are a wonderful, vibrant green and are covered in sticky trichomes, giving off a silvery appearance. Splattered throughout are appealing burnt orange pistils, making for a lovely looking plant for you home growers!
If you can make it past that powerful, hard-hitting scent, then the taste of Chem Dog will likely come as no surprise – with a super strong tasting diesel with undertones of pine and a slight tang, it is undoubtedly a taste sensation!
Medical Benefits of Chem Dog Strain
The effects of Chem Dog are part of the reason for its legendary status. With a cerebral effect that can last hours, you can whizz through your to-do list in no time, and have time to spare! Considered an ideal socializing strain, Chem Dog has often been the inspiration behind many earth-shattering conversations (really!) and can get you chatting for hours.
Medicinally, Chem Dog has a lot to offer, with the cerebral and upbeat energy being a great way to combat mental conditions such as stress, PTSD, anxiety and depression, and the physical relaxation being ideal for pain and migraines. This is a good all-rounder for those who are looking for a potent high.
Some users report that Chem Dog can bring about a disorientating feeling at first, so we recommend starting with light amounts and working up from there. However, after a few moments the hyper-awareness should set in and you can get your productivity in full flow.
Possible Side Effects of Chem Dog
Other than the feeling of disorientation due to the strong levels of THC, Chem Dog has also been known to cause paranoia if used in excess, particularly in people who suffer from mental health issues initially. We would always recommend that people who are new to cannabis proceed with extreme caution, and even those who are seasoned smokers take precautions with the THC here.
As is the case with most cannabis strains, Chem Dog is also likely to cause dry eyes and a dry mouth – so get the drinks to hand!
If potency isn’t your thing, then you may want to give Chem Dog a miss. However, if you are a lover of intense flavors and hard-hitting highs we couldn’t recommend this strain more!
