OG #18

Strain: OG #18
Lineage: 91′ Chemdawg Selection
Breeder: Reserva Privada
Sativa/Indica: Indica

Appearance: Large dense lime green nugs with rust / orange pistillate hairs sparsely throughout. Calyxes/Bracts are large, swollen, and densely packed forming tight clusters of buds with the consistency of Styrofoam.

Aroma / Flavor: Extremely pungent fuel smell with astringent notes similar to a cleaning product such as pine-sol. Smell transitions to flavor perfectly, coating the mouth with a strong and familiar OG taste.

Overall Effects: Immediate and powerful, the OG #18 produces a profound change in mood and perception that leaves many lightweights in a wall staring stupor. Sporting hash like potency, a well rounded high, and a deep fuely spin on the familiar So-Cal OG smell and flavor, even the pickiest of pot snobs will be satisfied. If your looking for a true OG in seed form with more vigor and higher yield than most of the clone only varieties being passed around, this is a good place to start looking.

Chemdawg x Sour Diesel

Strain: Chemdawg x Sour Diesel
Lineage: Chemdawg x (’91 Chemdawg x Mass Super Skunk/NL)x DNL
Breeder: -
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid

Appearance: These buds nearly glow with potency – nuclear green calyxs with light orange and yellow pistils.

Aroma / Flavor: Pungent and skunky bringing together the complexity of the chems piney astringent flavors and the foul funk that is Sour Diesel. Unreal stench and flavor to match, wont take long to permeate even glass jars.

Overall Effects: Not for lightweights, Chemdawg x Sour Diesel sends you soaring from the first puff – strongly distorting your visual perception and sending you off into a speedy euphoric bliss. Regardless of tolerance, this hybrid is sure to satisfy even the most picky connoisseur leaving you confused and red eyed sucking you into the psychedelic vortex that is the Chem and Sour d family. The initial speedy effects evolve into a warped trippy stone of hash or concentrate strength, likely to cause ravenous munchies and unexpected naps. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself organizing your bedroom in hysterical laughter or planning world domination. I’d advise making sure whatever you needed to get done for the day is done before packing this stuff into your pipe.

The History Of Chemdawg

At a Grateful Dead show at Deer Creek Amphitheatre, ‘joebrand’ (aka ‘wonkanobe’) and ‘pbud’ met ‘chemdog’ and sold him an ounce of very high quality pot for $500. joe and chemdog exchanged numbers and they later arranged for two ounces to be shipped to chemdog on the east coast. According to chemdog, one ounce was seedless and the other had 13 seeds.

In ’91, chemdog popped the first 4 seeds. From these seeds, one male was found and disposed of (chemdog was young, you can’t blame him). The 3 females were labeled ‘chemdawg’ (now ’91 chemdawg), ‘chemdawg a’ (now chemdawg’s sister), and ‘chemdawg b’. In ’01, chemdog and his girlfriend attempted to germ 3 more seeds, labeled ‘c’, ‘d’, and ‘e’. the ‘e’ seed never germinated, ‘c’ turned out to be junk (according to chemdog), and chemdawg ‘d’ was the keeper. In ’06, ‘chemdog’ and ‘joebrand’ reunited and joe was given 4 of the last 6 beans: Chemdawg phenos 1-4, ’4′ being the chosen keeper. Joe thought the ’4′ was the best representation of the original and thus dubbed it the ‘reunion pheno’. Chemdog still has two seeds left in his stash.

Chemdawg Crosses:
• ‘OG Kush’ (the original cut) came from an s1 from in a bag of ’91 Chemdawg in the Lake Tahoe area in 1996.
• ‘Sour Diesel’ aka ECSD came from an accidental cross of (’91 Chemdawg x Mass Super Skunk/NL)x DNL after the DNL hermed and seeded the room. The DNL’s lineage is NL/Shiva x Hawaiian.
• Original Diesel’ (also known as Diesel #1, Headband, Daywrecker Diesel, Underdawg) came from a cross of ’91 Chemdawg x (Mass Super Skunk x Sensi’s Northern Lights) done by a guy known as ‘weasel’.

• ‘chemdog’ and friends made several crosses that are held closely by a small group of friends and acquaintances. Among them are:

1. Super Snowdawg (Bubble Chem x [Super skunk x Oregon Sno])
2. Giesel (Chem D x Mass Super Skunk)
3. Bubble Chem (Chemdawg’s Sister x Sag’s Bubbleberry)
4. Dawg Daze aka ChemHaze (Chem D x ’93 Sensi’s NL#5/Haze)
5. Chemdawg D x Pbud (another old-school Colorado strain)

JJ-NYC has been working on a Chemdawg D-based seed line for several years now. He started by crossing Chemdawg D to Sensi’s Afghani after thoroughly testing both Sensi’s Afghani and Sensi’s Hindu Kush to determine which was more stable and would be better for the initial cross. JJ then did a backcross, known as “Double Dawg.” Several phenos of this circulate and several people still have beans. JJ’s latest work to the line is a second backcross known as “Tres Dawg” which is just starting to get tested.

Rezdog of Reservoir Seeds recently released several Chemdawg crosses as part of his ‘Trinity’ charity auctions. The crosses included Chemdawg D x Sensi’s Hindu Kush and Snowdawg x Sensi’s Hindu Kush, Chemdawg D x Sour Diesel IBL, Snowdawg x Sour Diesel IBL, ChemHaze x Sour Diesel IBL and Giesel x Sour Diesel IBL.
