Chemdawg

 

Effect:  

In my efforts to get our menu 100% updated I see I have yet another I need to do a pure test on.  I will try to do this soon and get a good review up.  I can say that I have smoked this strain a few times.  Its a smooth, tasty strong Indica dom sensation.  Not super heavy, but strong with a good body buzz.  Hopefully full review coming soon :).

 

Genetics/Info:

The origins of chemdawg are a bit mysterious.   Stories vary but it all seems to come back to a Grateful Dead concert nearly 3 decades ago and some young aspiring horticulteralists.  There are multiple popular phenotypes (different versions of plants originating from the same genetics that can be sativa or indica dominant) or Chemdog aka Chemdawg so really the name in itself doesnt really tell you what the smoke is going to be like.  Judging by looks and effect this is definately an Indica dominant strain.

Bud formation is very nice and quite dense.  Very pretty.

 

 Medicinal Uses:

THC dominant Indica strains such as Chemdawg tend to act as more of a sedative or relaxant for most people.   Many people have reported great success for treating the symptoms of medical conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, muscle spasms and tremors.   Personally I found this strain to be great for insomnia.

Some people, particualry those who have been diagnosed ADD or ADHD can have the Indica/Sativa scale flip on them.  For many of these patients Sativas will provide the effect typical of Indicas.  And this strain will actually induce Sativa like effects.  For those patients this strain would act in a more stimulating way and would probably be better suited to treating patients in the areas of appetite stimulation, relieving depression, migraines, chronic pain and nausea.
