What are the Flavor and Effects of Chemdog
Chemdog is believed to be a descendant of Sour Diesel because of the huge resemblance in their taste and smell. On the inhale, it gives off a sharp, sour flavor with diesel undertones. On the exhale, it offers a more earthy flavor with pine undertones. The strong and pungent aromas of this strain makes it not perfect for a discreet use. Novice cannabis users may find this scent and flavor profile a bit overwhelming, while experienced users may find this a rather adventurous and delightful experience.
This strain has an almost perfect balance of indica and sativa properties. With that, it delivers on both fronts. The cerebral high induces creativity and focus to the users. It is perfect for artistic activities and those that require analytical thinking such as brainstorming for ideas. As this head high settles in, a strong body high awaits. This results in a heavy body stone which affects even the most experienced users. It leaves every muscle of the body relaxed which makes the users feel sleepy. The indica properties of the OG Kush will then start to lock the users in their couches. This body stone lasts for up to 2 hours. Hence, it is not recommended for the faint-hearted.
What are the Medical Benefits of Chemdog
Chemdog marijuana is popular among medical users for its mood enhancing properties. It is recommended for patients struggling with stress, anxiety, and depression as it provides for a temporary relief to their symptoms. It is also helpful to those with ADHD.
Aside from its therapeutic effects in mental health conditions, this strain also promises pain-relieving effects and anti-inflammatory properties. For that, it is being used by those who are suffering from migraines, arthritis, muscle pains, and PMS. Its sedating effects that lead users into a couchlock can also be used by patients struggling with insomnia to induce a restful sleep among themselves.
Negative Effects You Can Expect from Chemdog
This highly potent strain is not recommended for those with low tolerance of high THC levels. Chemdog has been reported to cause paranoia and anxiety attacks when taken excessively. Its most common adverse effects include having dry eyes and dry mouth. Users are advised to drink lots of water to mitigate their discomfort. As it leads to a couchlock effect, this strain is not advisable to be used when driving.
How to Grow Chemdog
Chemdog marijuana is not a very easy strain to cultivate, especially for novice growers. This strain is not resistant to mold and mildew, which requires extra care and attention from the growers. Growers are advised to invest in good ventilation since this strain can smell very pungent while growing. Growers can use the Sea of Green (SOG) growing technique to hasten the growth of this strain.
When grown indoors, it takes about 7 to 9 weeks for this strain to be ready for harvest. When grown outdoors in a hot and dry environment, growers can expect to harvest it by early October. Growers love the huge yields that this strain produces.
