Chemdawg 91 is a popular hybrid bred from unknown parents - some theorize that the “91” in its name refers to the year of its creation. It is descended from the legendary Chemdawg strain which is thought to be crossed from Thai and Nepalese landraces by U.S. East Coast breeders. The phenotypes of Chemdawg 91 can waver between indica-dominant and sativa-dominant, but its THC content is strong and has been measured at levels as high as 24%.
Chemdawg 91 buds are average-sized and very sticky. Trichomes coat the brownish-green flowers, making them difficult to break without a grinder. The strain has a dank, earthy smell which, when buds are broken apart, turns more harsh and skunky (leading some to propose parentage from a Skunk strain). When burned, Chemdawg 91 has a particularly diesel, chemical flavor. The smoke is smooth, and flavors of citrus can be detected when exhaled.
The strain has an initially bracing head high, with pressure behind the temples that can lead to dry, red eyes. Users report a sense of euphoria and progressively cerebral thinking. This altered thinking can include the sensation of time dilation. The uplifting mental effects are matched by a subtle body high that lingers after comedown. Chemdawg 91 is especially beneficial for stress relief and may be best suited to early evening use.
Whether cultivated indoors or outdoors, this strain has a pungency that makes discretion difficult. With a flowering time of 9 -10 weeks indoors and an outdoor harvest as late as early November, Chemdawg 91 is not a quick grow. Plants have an average to high yield.
