Chemdawg is an indica-dominant marijuana strain that was originally grown from a seed in a particularly nice batch of bought weed. It is the parent strain from which both OG Kush and Sour Diesel were bred. Very high potency strain.
Chemdawg is 60% indica, 40% sativa and is derived from the original Chem '91 clone grown from that bag of weed more than a quarter of a century ago. It puts out a fabulous display of colours which varies from yellow right through the spectrum to purple. It thrives indoors, in a greenhouse and outdoors where the climate is warm and sunny. Indoors this strain will produce 350 - 525 gr/m2 in a flowering time of 65 - 70 days. Outdoors growers can get between 2 - 3 kilos each from plants that can grow to a height of more than 4 meters. Harvest will be by the beginning of October in northern latitudes. It has good moisture resistance.
The aroma is of sour fruit, diesel fuel and pine resin. Its flavour combines citrus and tropical fruit with diesel fuel. The THC production is an incredible 24% with very low CBD at 0.1%. The exceedingly powerful, long-lasting effect is very cerebral with feelings of euphoria and an overall very uplifting quality.
N.B. All Diesel strains are derived from Chemdawg including Sour, Headband and New York City Diesel strains.

About Humboldt Seeds
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.
