About 13 Dawgs
13 Dawgs is a potent, well-balanced strain that combines the power of alleged government mind-control drug G13 and sativa-dominant hybrid Chemdawg. This strain is the creation of Canadian breeders Delta 9 Biotech. In addition to an ideal transition between sativa and indica effects, it offers users a refreshingly fruity flavor profile. 13 Dawgs’ THC content has been measured at between 13% and 19%.
Flowers of 13 Dawgs are medium to large in size and adhere in impressively solid, elongated formations. The structure of these buds appears to lean more sativa, with leaves that spiral loosely away from each other at their margins for an overall fluffy appearance. These leaves are a pale sage green and are shot through with curly red and orange pistils. A heavy coating of icy white trichomes makes this a very sticky and psychoactive strain.
The surprising scents of apricot and other stonefruit wafts up from cured buds of 13 Dawgs. A second whiff picks up on the strain’s citrus tones as well. Grinding up or picking apart these flowers, meanwhile, yields a pungent skunky odor. When burnt, 13 Dawgs gives off a smooth and easily ingested smoke. This smoke carries a tropical fruit flavor with a slightly sour edge on the exhale.
13 Dawgs begins to settle in shortly after smokers have inhaled its sweet citrus smoke. Initial signs of the high’s arrival include an increase in salivation and a feeling of constriction around the temples and lower forehead. Some consumers may also detect some flushing in the cheeks. As these facial tics subside, users may notice their thoughts moving more quickly than usual and seeming to take on a new gravity or intensity. This mental stimulation may help busy consumers get some work done on any detail analytical tasks. It can also free up some creative energy for more freeform projects. As it settles in, 13 Dawgs’ high may also distort the senses, leading to phenomena like a loss of accurate depth perception and the trippy feeling of time passing more slowly.
After at least an hour, smokers may find that their limbs and eyelids begin to sag as the strain’s physically relaxing properties take over. Any consumers who may be out and about might be inspired to seek some refuge on the closest comfortable couch as waves of relaxation roll down through the spine. 13 Dawgs’ body high offers relief from both physical and mental tension, soothing sore muscles and banishing any stressors or preoccupations to the background. While the strain’s original head high persists at this stage, users may lose the motivation and energy to accomplish any demanding, physically active tasks. Instead, the second half of this high is great for kicking back and snacking or binge-watching. The strain’s laidback mood combined with its mental buzz can encourage free-flowing conversation and good vibes when shared with like-minded friends. Because of its eventual step down into laziness, 13 Dawgs is recommended for later afternoon or evening consumption.
13 Dawgs’ wide-reaching effects can also have many uses for medical cannabis patients. The mental focus that accompanies its onset may enable sustained concentration for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, this bud’s gentle euphoria can temporarily take the sting out of mild to moderate cases of stress, depression, and anxiety. Physical benefits include a relief from pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties can take care of lesser irritations like cramps or headaches. Because its cerebral effects may create some obsessive, recursive patterns of thinking, 13 Dawgs is not a good option for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of 13 Dawgs are not available for sale online. Instead, home growers should obtain clippings from plants that can be fostered as genetically identical “clones.” Plants can be grown indoors or outdoors if gardeners live in a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate with daytime temperatures in the seventies (Fahrenheit). The sativa structure of these buds suggests that plants grow tall and branch and may call for some pruning early on in their life cycle. 13 Dawgs flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.
13 Dawgs’ balance of effects makes it a great smoke for indica and sativa lovers alike. If you’re toking in public, bring enough to share, as this strain’s distinctive tropical aroma is sure to turn some heads.
