Dopium is a hybrid strain of cannabis that tends to be overwhelmingly Sativa-dominant. Time and time again, medical patients and recreational stoners alike find themselves gravitating towards this dope strain for its powerful effects and higher-than-average THC concentration. For all of you hip hop heads out there, yes, this strain was likely named after the incredibly dope and complex Wu-Tang album of the same name. Although this strain’s original breeders are shrouded in mystery, we do know that this plant is the offspring of Sour Diesel and Chemdawg.
For those who really like their bud to have complex scents, looks, and flavors, Dopium is going to be a bit of a let down. With this strain, what you see is essentially what you get. The smell and the flavor are almost exactly the same. Like both of its parent strains, Dopium can be quite loud, and will alert any keen noses in the vicinity to its presence. Expect to smell and taste both pungent diesel and crisp pine. Some users, especially those who haven’t tried a wide range of strains, have reported this bud tasting a bit too sour for their liking. Dopium buds are irregular, with the olive and forest green nugs taking on a variety of shapes. In addition to these fluffy nugs, you should also be able to spot amber pistils and a dense coating of sticky white trichomes.
At first glance, those experienced with cannabis would recognize its average THC concentration, 18%, as a mid-to-high level that should be respected when consuming. However, looking at the number alone can be quite misleading, as many are unprepared for Dopium’s intense effects. In fact, most bud tenders who work in dispensaries that stock Dopium won’t sell it to first-time customers and patients.
Although this strain is quite Sativa-dominant, many have reported this strain causing quite the relaxing body buzz which helps sooth your physical discomforts while the THC works wonders on your mind.
The cerebral high created by Dopium’s effects is quite powerful and encompassing. As soon as you rip some of this flower you cede control of your mental faculties to this powerful plant and allow your mind to be soothed. You will likely feel a sense of quiet, determination and focus rather than a bubbly, social happy high. Although you will feel raring to go physically, your mind will be off in the far reaches of space.
