Dawg Star draws its name from ancient times, long before anyone knew what kind of impact the marijuana plant would have on the world. Ancient Egyptians believed their Gods came from the brightest star in the sky, knowns as "the Dog Star." According to legend, the Gods bestowed upon their people a magical plant that could heal all things and called it cannabis. This is significant to the origin of the company because their name is more than just a catchy moniker: the word cannabis literally means "two dogs" and we know now that the star they believed to be one is actually Sirius A and B. So the magical plant, in translation, is the plant that came from two dog stars.
Beyond having an affinity for history, the breeders at Dawg Star have dedicated their lives to the cultivation of high quality products. They were Seattle's first licensed and permitted growing facility, making themselves trailblazers for the hundreds that came after. As avid smokers themselves, it was important that above all else they stayed approachable as a company for both vendors and customers. That is why they came up with their three category system: mind, body, mood. By breaking their products into three categories and ensuring that expert breeders care specifically for each, they're able to reach a larger client base in a much simpler way by taking the guesswork out of shopping, especially for first timers. This approach has endeared them to many, leaving them with an enormous fan base and wide ranging appeal.
