According to legend, Chemdawg seeds were born at a Grateful Dead concert in Indiana. Although nobody could 100 percent confirm this story, it’s likely a few West Coast cultivars mixed Thai and Nepalese landraces to create the legendary cannabis hybrid. Soon after this indica-dominant strain hit the market, users fell in love with its high THC content, cerebral high, and diesel aromatics. Today, many influential strains like OG Kush and Sour Diesel trace their lineage back to Chemdawg (aka Chemdog). If you’re thinking about growing Chemdawg seeds at home, please keep in mind this strain is susceptible to mold.

Although Chemdawg is an indica-dominant cannabis strain, it’s not as easy to grow as other indicas. You should have some experience successfully cultivating beginner-friendly strains before moving on to Chemdawg seeds.
The main issue people have with Chemdawg is the strain’s low resistance to mold. Because Chemdawg is so susceptible to mildew, expert cultivators recommend growing these seeds indoors so you could control temperature, airflow, and humidity. If you want to grow Chemdawg outside, then you must live in a Mediterranean climate zone.
On top of mold susceptibility, people who grow Chemdawg seeds have to prepare for tall plants that could soar up to seven feet. For the best results, practice low-intensity training and frequent pruning when growing Chemdawg.
On the positive side, Chemdawg seeds produce reliably high yields of between 2.5 – 2.8 ounces per ft². Usually, it takes about 9 – 10 weeks for these cannabis seeds to reach the harvesting stage.
Unlike most indica hybrids, Chemdawg’s buds are slightly fluffy and loose, which makes them particularly susceptible to mold. Chemdawg buds also usually have a sticky layer of white trichomes that’s difficult to break without grinders.
Tokers who enjoy sour strains will love Chemdawg’s pungent gasoline flavor profile. Other flavors often associated with Chemdawg include musk, lemon, and earthiness.
Chemdawg’s intense cerebral high makes it a popular choice with depression patients. Although Chemdawg could induce paranoia in higher quantities, it might help patients with anxiety in lower doses.
A common complaint Chemdawg smokers have is dry mouth, so be sure to keep some water nearby. Those who are prone to panic attacks might also want to approach this strain with caution.
