The vegetative and root growth is quite explosive making it possible to move into the flowering phase in double quick time. Although the fan leaves are broad the inter-nodal distance is wide enough to allow for good light penetration and a more even structural development. Expect the stretch to be around 30% during flowering which takes between 48 and 55 days.
In the fifth week large crown buds appear producing a high level of oils and resin. The perfume is strongly reminiscent of berry and grape. Indoor yields are between 350 - 400 gr/m2 in a flowering time of 7 - 8 weeks. In outdoor environments Black D.O.G. can reach over 3 meters tall and is ready to be harvested at the end of September or the beginning of October in northern latitudes. Yields are anywhere between 1 and 3 kilos of dried weight per plant.
THC production is between 16% - 21% depending on conditions and grower expertise. Predominant aromas and flavours of berries, grapes and diesel fuel. This strain is highly recommended for the relief of pain, migraines and as an appetite stimulant and it has qualities that are cerebral as well as developing into a couch-lock finish which can make for a very pleasant, relaxing experience.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
