POWER (Sour Doubble x Socal Master Kush)

Sour Cream (Sour Diesel x G13 Haze)

P.O. #1 – Sour Double x SoCal Master Kush

Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze

Strain: Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze
Lineage: Sour Diesel x Super Silver Haze
Breeder: Connoisseur Genetics
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Sativa

Appearance: Light mossy green nugs with orange / rust pistillate hairs throughout composed mostly of loosely clustered medium sized bracts. The resin glands on this sample are particularly large and have a sandy appearance to the naked eye.

Aroma / Flavor: Light and nutty with woody floral and foresty notes – the flavors and aromas of this phenotype are pleasant but very subtle and light, atypical of most high potency strains. After a session, the room is filled with that distinct “church” smell associated with haze varieties.

Overall Effects: This plant was grown from a pack of Connoisseur Genetics SSSDH, which is a rework of a Reservoir Seeds strain of the same name. As with most haze heavy hybrids, the onset of the SSSDH was smooth and gradual – beginning with feelings of lightness and well being and slowly evolving into a functional dreamy high with the classic “haze vision” (An almost static like appearance in your peripheral sight and an added lucidity noticed mainly with rays of light and colors). When used moderately, this can be a great morning or daytime medicine with little noticeable “come down” when the effects begin to wain. This particular phenotype, while exhibiting mostly Sativa traits finished in a respectable 9 weeks with mostly cloudy (and a few amber) resin glands.

Headband

Strain: Headband
Lineage: Sour Diesel x Og Kush
Breeder: Unknown
Sativa/Indica: Hybrid

Appearance: Dense lime green nugs contrasted by deep green sugar leaf and light orange / pinkish pistillate hairs.

Aroma / Flavor: Similar to both Og Kush and Sour Diesel in it’s pungency, headband smells and tastes strongly – both fuely and skunky.

Overall Effects: Headband is a great daytime or morning smoke when used in moderation. Potent and uplifting, headband sets in quickly with a manageable buzz that doesn’t kill your motivation. The Sour Diesel and Og Kush influence are apparent the second you crack the seal on a jar, sure to smell through any but air tight containers. The effects are euphoric and relaxing, offering relief to those suffering from depression and anxiety, and in larger doses can help with appetite stimulation and insomnia.

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.

Po #1 (Sour Double X SoCal Master Kush)

Strain: P.O. #1  (aka Riddler OG)
Lineage: Sour Double (Sour Diesel x Sour Bubble)  x SoCal Master Kush
Breeder: Progressive Options  - Clone Only
Sativa/Indica: Mostly Indica

Appearance: The nugs of PO #1 are large calyxed and similar in structure to Sour Diesel though a substantially darker shade of green. The surface has an almost grey sheen from the large trichome glands that densely accumulate in some areas. Spear shaped buds, full but not overly dense.

Aroma / Flavor: The skunky fuel smell of the Sour Diesel is present but substantially softened by the influence of the Master Kush, which adds a sweeter hashy flavor and smell. While less pungent than the pure Sour Diesel, the smell is still likely to escape all but air tight containers.

Overall Effects: PO #1 is a powerful indica dominant hybrid that calms both mind and body with it’s smooth and flavorful smoke. It sets in gradually, with effects ranging from a dreamy stone to full on couch-lock depending on the quantity consumed. While similar to Sour Diesel, the PO #1 provides a less intense and more relaxing stone that is dominant in the body but still present in the mind – a true indica dominant hybrid. Ideal for use later in the day, PO #1 makes a great sleep aid and is known to cause “munchies” consistently regardless of tolerance.

Sour Cream (Sour Diesel x G13/Haze)

Dna Genetics - Sour Cream

Strain: Sour Cream
Lineage: Sour Diesel x G13/Haze
Breeder: DNA Genetics
Sativa/Indica: 70% / 30%
Grow Notes: Sour Cream is a picky eater and prefers low doses of nutrients, reaching maturity in 10-12 weeks depending on phenotype chosen. The phenotype for review was chopped at 11 weeks of flowering and was grown from feminized seeds from DNA Genetics.

Description: You can smell the Sour Cream well before you open the bag or prescription vial. More complex in smell and high than your average Sour Diesel hybrid, the Sour Cream really has a uniquely calming stone. The buds are light green with light orange/pinkish hairs and glisten with resin. The smell and flavor have a sour pungency reminiscent of it’s Sour Diesel heritage, but with a mentholated floral twist that lingers around in the nose and on the tongue. For a 70% sativa variety, the buds are quite dense – similar in structure to your typical Sour Diesel but with a more open structure. The effects of the sour cream come on slowly and last long; after a toke or two you feel the burst of energy typically associated with sativa heavy varieties, but this quickly evolves into a dreamy stone that will leave you napping or staring out the window (or at the wall) daydreaming. I’ve found Sour Cream to have an unusually low tolerance build up even with prolonged daily use, consistently delivering the dreamy stone I’ve grown so accustomed too. I’m yet to be disappointed by any of DNA’s offerings.
