According to High Times magazine, the current strongest cannabis lineage is the Chemdawg family whose genetics are unknown and mysterious, yet found in many of today’s strains. Bred from parents Chemdawg #4 and Tres Dawg, that is a whole lot of Chemdawg, and Stardawg will not disappoint. Typically high in THC, Stardawg offers a surprising mix of mood elevating, energizing sativa effects as well as the characteristic indica physical relaxation. The high provides an uplifting, motivational boost lessening anxiety, depression and stress. It also addresses pain, inflammation, and fatigue while allowing one to stay active during the daytime. Related strains, or possibly phenotypes, include Stardawg IX and Guava Chem.

Cultivation Info | Vetted methods to get the best from your bud

  • Indoor flowering time: 63-70 days
  • Harvest time: (Outdoor/Greenhouse) Late October

Growing Environment: Indoor/outdoor. Garden Skills: Intermediate. Flowering Time: 9-10 weeks. Yield: Moderate. Height: Medium.

The buds, when grown properly, will be so frosted with resin that you can’t tell what color the buds actually are. These dense and oh-so-potent buds are going to send you on a medicinal as well as spiritual journey, typically for over 2 hours. These ladies embrace their Chem-4 father’s genetics when growing, usually not reaching over 4 feet indoors. She’s also known to produce a moderate, but sometimes generous yield and does extremely well in soil. During the later stages of maturity, she becomes an absolutely amazing lady to lay your eyes upon. Her dark green leaves shoot out of huge calyxes that are white with resin and produce a strong odor. You can expect to consistently harvest Star Dawg around the 9-10 week mark indoors, and by the end of October when you cultivate her outside.

The original Chem Dog(s) were born from a bag of "Dog Bud" brought from Colorado to Massachusetts. Dog Bud is believed to be an unknown strain from Oregon from the 1980's or perhaps even before. From there, Top Dawg Seed Company has proliferated the lineage to extreme popularity. It is rumored that there are still a few original Chem Dog seeds yet to be germinated. Chem 4 was an original seed popped after a Grateful Dead tour in 1991 when two guys from Colorado networked with a fellow fan from Massachusetts. One ounce of supreme quality "Dog Bud" (the nickname given to the original plant, possibly originating in Oregon) had a handful of seeds. Of those seeds, one was Chem Dog 4. An all-star of it's own, it was bred to Tres Dawg, a Chem Dog exclusive breeding project. By compounding desired traits in the flowers, Stardawg is remarkably dense, pungent and stoney.

Known cuts: Guava Chem (or GuayabaChem in spanish) is "the Guava StarDawg cut" by JJ-NYC of Top Dawg. Stardawg IX: Star Dawg (Corey Haim) (F) x Star Dawg (M).

Additional Information

Sprouting from perhaps the most influential strain in the modern cannabis market, Stardawg is the cumulation of two Chem Dawg (Chem Dog) strains, of which also spawned from exclusive Chem Dog breeding projects. The legend of Chem Dog, later named Chem Dawg by Top Dawg Seeds, is grand and since the early 90's the strain has become a common ancestor of most strains enjoyed in the 21st century.
