About Space Dawg
Space Dawg is a mostly indica strain that delivers both flavorful smoke and a hazy, subdued high. Created by prolific growers TGA Subcool Seeds, this bud is a cross between Space Queen and potent sativa Super Snow Dog. With is progressive waves of relaxation, Space Dawg is a must-try for indica lovers. It typically has high levels of THC, measured at between 18% and 23%.
Space Dawg stands out thanks to its impressive flowers. These buds are medium to large in size and cling together in chunky, elongated columns. They have a compact and apparently indica-influenced bud structure, with leaves that are densely packed around their central stems. These leaves themselves are a bright shade of spring green and are threaded through by curly brown and orange pistils. Finally, parent strain Super Snow Dog passes on its propensity for high trichome production, giving Space Dawg a snowy coating of resinous trichomes.
When properly cured, Space Dawg’s flowers give off a musty, earthy scent that is something like a damp basement. Another whiff may detect some light herbal accents as well. Grinding up the buds releases a skunky tang, somewhat like fermented organic material. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Space Dawg gives off a smooth and very palatable smoke; this smoke tastes floral and slightly dank on the exhale.
Like many other strong indica, Space Dawg takes its sweet time before setting up shop in the smoker’s brain and body. Depending on the individual user’s tolerance, effects may take up to 15 minutes to arrive. When the high eventually shows up, it gives the consumer’s thought a rambling, freely-associative quality. This can result in focus being drawn in several different directions at once and may make lucid conversation difficult with unintoxicated parties. Space Dawg’s cloudy mental state is sometimes accompanied by odd physical sensations in the head and face, including an increase in salivation or a sudden flushing in the cheeks. As such, this bud is better suited to daydreaming or ot passive consumption of media than it is to concentration on detailed and important tasks. As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, Space Dawg’s effects become even more embodied. A tingle that begins in the neck may work its way down through the torso and limbs, conferring a heavy, numbing sensation. This feeling can weigh down limbs and eyelids alike and can do away with any earlier motivation the smoker may have had to get through a busy agenda. Instead, consumers should enjoy the latter phases of Space Dawg’s high by snacking, binge-watching, or turning on some moody music. The strain’s deep, mellow properties can also be a fun way to pass the time with friends, especially if they’re sharing your stash. Because of its mostly drowsy vibes, Space Dawg is best reserved for late afternoon through evening use.
Space Dawg’s thorough sedation can have many applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its elimination of mental preoccupations and physical tension can make it a great treatment for stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. It can also dull intense pain, whether it’s temporary or chronic and disease-related. The strain can also bring about the munchies, making it a viable appetite stimulant for those who have lost their hunger to disease or to treatments like chemotherapy. In a properly relaxed set and setting, Space Dawg may even counteract insomnia, lulling smokers to sleep. Because it doesn’t do much to stoke the user’s patterns of thinking, Space Dawg is largely without paranoid effects; however, its numbing body stone can be so strong as so prove disconcerting for some. As such, those prone to panic should consume this strain with caution.
Seeds of Space Dawg are available through TGA, but they are not regularly stocked. If obtained, they can be successfully cultivated indoors or out -- although outdoor growing requires a humid, Mediterranean-like climate with consistent daytime sunlight. Plants of the strain grow short and bushy and flower within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors. They offer a medium yield at harvest time.
A drowsy, laidback strain, Space Dawg can be a luxurious nighttime smoke. Its deep, complex flavor makes it worth seeking out by terpene enthusiasts.
