This is a strain review from I wish I could put the nug in the pick in my bong and smoke it right now!:

The folk history behind the Chemdog strains is a tale worth the telling:

It was 1991 and Grateful Dead were appearing at Deer Creek Amphitheatre, cannabis breeder, Chemdog, met up with joebrand and pbud in the parking lot and they sold him an ounce of weed for $500. Contact details were exchanged and it was arranged to ship two more ounces of the weed to Chemdog on the east coast.

The way Chemdog tells it is: one ounce was seedless and the other had 13 seeds. It was from these thirteen seeds that a legend grew; the Chemdog strain reputedly boasts some of the most superior cannabis clones in the USA.

Chemdog planted four of his thirteen seeds: one was male and trashed; the remaining three females became Chemdawg (now referred to as 91 Chemdawg), Chemdawg a (now Chemdawg’s Sister), and Chemdawg b.

Move forward by a decade to 2001, and we find Chemdog and his girlfriend germinating (or attempting to germinate) three more seeds. With remarkable creativity, the three new seeds were labeled c, d, and e; e didn’t germinate and c was rubbish, only d turned out to be any good. Four more were germinated in 2006, from which came the Reunion strain. And now there are two seeds left in Chemdog’s stash.

As if to reinforce the legendary status of this weed, unless you live in New York City it is very difficult to obtain.

    It has made it south. ChemDawg rules look out ilm


    Yesssssir, I like this strain.
    A friend of mine had it in Cincinnati, by way of Nashville.


    I found 1 seed in a bud of Chemdawg I got from a local medical caregiver. I germed it ASAP! After 2/12 months, I have mothered it 50 x and decided to flower it. It has taken a lfe of it’s own here in Michigan! Stubby, deep green leaves, and crystals forming already! Thanks to whoever for creating a great strain backin ’91! KGB


      I have a small nug of it. Must be floating around the metro Detroit area for the past couple months. Maybe it came from you. Definitely matches the images and description. 


    We all have loved the dog for many years. Great base for breeding. Blue dog is out of this world. Love those blue berries. Available in the emerald triangle.
    Only the best for our patience. The HERB MASTER.


    “…unless you live in NYC this strain is very difficult to obtain.”

    At least the author clued us in on their infinite wisdom. You fucking dope.


    Healing in WI.


    It really sucks that this whole story is made up…


       Made up or not it’s contemporary folklore.  How much of history do you thinks made up? “Knowledge of a nation’s folklore is the knowledge of the creative workings of the minds of it’s folk. it is the key to a nation’s value, a highway that leads into the heart of it’s people.”


      BULLSHiT iTS NOT!!!


    I heard chem is a strain that responds very well to chemicals.  Dawg is an attempt by some of the best growers to show people that organic can always be better.  Although extremely worthy this Dawg plant just loved chemicals more and chem was the better sibling.  Well, inevitably they were crossed and chemdawg a holy grail of a strain was conceived!!!!!! and it was at a Phish concert in 91′
    but that’s just what I heard.


    shits in st.louis now 


    i got this shit in nottingham england


    is this related to alienchem?


    I’m at around 3 1/2 weeks of flowering my chemdawg and the nugs are nice and frosty. The smell is phenomenal. All organic!


    can anybody tell me why this is not recommended for novice growers?


       Sativa dominant strains aren’t generally for the novice grower because of the amount of care they need, whereas alot of indica you can throw in and feed not a lot of care is needed to produce a good yield however with a sative being MUCH more leafy you have to keep it down to a minimum to ensure epic outcomes


    This shit is in Dallas too


    I just got a quarter for 90. If I had to describe it in 1 word, astonishing. 


    great sativa strain


    i got some chem sister and chemdawg 4 and both are DOPE!! keepin lit in Cali SF Bay all day!


    Fucking baked on this shit…


    Insane, Lovin it. In a class of it’s own. Heady all the way, great high!!


    Im gettin some friday:) blownin down in texas


    This is my fav. daily smoke!


    just got an eighth of this. im 1/4 done with my first joint of it, and already recommend it to all users


    got it in NC, doesn’t feel like a heady. and yes, I use for medical reasons. enjoying it.


    (Colorado smokers input) I have always liked chemdog phenotypes and with the right grow it can be a heady high. Its a great everyday smoke, but nothing special. I would not pay more then 25 1/8th or 160 an oz. The thing is it is an old strain and with all the advancement in mmj this is a disadvantage. There are plenty of heady buds out there with more to offer. Chemdog thc levels are at 20% and .2% CBD at its best butmost likely more like 15% and .01to.1 CBD. But take a strain of Girl Scout Cookies wich have recorded thc levels at 26% and 4% CBD. I would pay 35 to 40 an 1/8th . So chemdog is good but top shelf it is not. I guess if you dont have access to lots of strains chemdog wouldbe a good find.

    It is a cross breed but I have not noticed many indica traits, however its sativa traits make this is a great day high that won’t leave you tired. That being said it is strong and if you over medicate it will knock you out, but with the correct amount you will get a nice head high mixed with euphoria and a happy mood. Not good for pain but can be combined with a indica to add pain relief to it effects. All and all if you see it grab it but don’t over pay!


    Just got 5 gs here in FL! Great strain! Love that it doesn’t make you tired!


    Organic grow is the best, chemicals equal pshycosis!!!! Colorado got it the best its the water just like nyc has the best water for pizza!!!!!
