Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 90% Sativa / 10% Indica. THC: 16% – 25%
Stardawg, also known as “Stardog” to most members of the cannabis community, is heavily sativa dominant hybrid (90% sativa/10% indica) strain that is a potent cross between the insanely popular Chemdawg 4 X Tres Dog strains. This dank bud boasts a THC level ranging from 16-22% and a potent effects length of up to 3 hours. Stardawg buds have small to medium-sized dense popcorn-shaped nugs that are bright minty green with olive green and rich amber undertones. These nugs are specked with fiery orange and deep amber hairs and a fine layer of white crystal trichomes and resin. Stardawg has an earthy pine aroma with hints of diesel and a taste of pungent earthy diesel with a hint of lemony pine upon exhale. Stardawg users describe the high as an extremely active and uplifting sativa head buzz with pressure felt behind the eyes and in the neck. You’ll experience a huge burst of energy and urge to be social and talkative, although you may fall into fits of giggles here and there. These potent sativa effects are accompanied by a relaxing mellow indica body buzz. Stardawg is an ideal strain for treating conditions such as chronic stress, fatigue, and anxiety disorders relief.
Stardawg is a Sativa-dominant hybrid originally bred in the Bay Area of California as a cross between Chemdawg 4 and Tres Dawg. It likely got its name from both the crystalline trichomes that inhabit the strain (appearing like STARS) and it’s Chem/TresDAWG lineage. THC levels in Stardawg are regularly above average – testing between 16 and 22 percent.
People remark on the musky, earthy scent with diesel fuel notes. Cannabis lovers appreciate the strong, funky aroma but it may be too strong for novices and first-timers. The aroma has been described as morning breath, a truck stop, roadkill skunk, and a vat full of chemicals.
These smells sound nasty, but cannabis aficionados love the dank, lingering aromatic notes as they herald the potent, mind altering effects of Stardawg. Expect the herb to be dense and frosted with resin, so much so that the dark green color with red/orange hairs is hard to see.
Medical patients choose Stardawg to help manage symptoms of fatigue, stress, and anxiety. It blunts pain, alleviates digestive issues, and inspires the munchies so people can gain weight. Others choose it in order to get to sleep at night or to manage the fallout from Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease.
Because it is a Sativa-dominant strain, people with significant medical issues might want to try a different strain with more of a body melt and pain relief. The smoke feel in the mouth is thick and may make some people cough.
People should be able to get tasks accomplished, run errands, and even go to work when consuming smaller doses of this strain as it imparts uplifting cerebral effects that can stimulate the mind. Recreational users report highs that feel like spiritual journeys and that may be too intense for newbies.
This strain is suited for daytime use, especially a wake and bake as the effects last for a long time. Stardawg has a reputation for long buzz times, two to three hours, which is longer than many strains – which need re-application after an hour or two.
Growers can plant indoors, out of doors, or in a green house. Expect flower in 8 weeks and a high yield. After cutting and trimming, cure in a humidity controlled room for best results.
California born and bred, Stardawg is a popular cannabis strain. Sativa-dominant, the indica effects take a back seat to the cerebral effects.
