Chemdog is another legendary strain on our list. There is a lot of mystery surrounding Chemdog, mainly because it comes from a time when cannabis breeding was done on the down-low. Chemdog comes from landrace genetics from both Nepal and Thailand, producing a strong head high and high levels of THC, this is a strain that you want to be careful of if you’re a newbie – start low, go slow.
Growers will find that it isn’t that difficult to grow, but you are left with a tall plant that will more than double during the flowering switch. Yields are high and a short flowering time makes this great for indoor or outdoor cultivation.
The two major terpenes present in Chemdog are Caryophyllene and Myrcene, producing the Earthy-Diesel flavor that is well-known throughout North America. This strain is best suited for patients suffering from stress, depression, and pain, but it’s also suitable for insomnia and appetite loss.
