Biesel (Shark Haze X Sour Diesel)
Sativa Dominant Hybrid - 60% Sativa / 40% Indica THC: 23%
Biesel is a super rare slightly sativa-dominant hybrid strain (60% sativa/40% indica) created through crossing the classic strains. Though this strain is a Sativa, it hits like a ton of bricks and definitely takes after its mother, the head-knocking Original Diesel, an East Coast favorite. Biesel packs a potent high, thanks to a THC level that bottoms out at about 23% on average. The high starts with a subtle lifted effect that eases away any negative or racing thoughts, replacing them with a heaviness that leaves your eyes and head drooping. As your mind falls further and further into hazy stoney bliss, your body will begin to follow suit, leaving you hopelessly couch-locked and immovable for hours and hours on end. This soon becomes sleepy, which can have you dozing off fairly quickly. Thanks to these hard-hitting effects and its high THC level, Biesel is said to be perfect for treating chronic pain, depression, chronic stress or anxiety, and cramps or muscle spasms. This bud has a skunky sour flavor with a sharp hint of savory diesel upon exhale. The aroma is of fresh herbs and spices with a heavy pungent overtone that turns to dank diesel as the nugs are burned. Biesel buds have spade-shaped minty green nugs with lots of dark orange hairs and a coating of thick frosty clear crystal trichomes.
Blueberry Skunk (Blueberry X Skunk #1)
Indica-dominant Hybrid - 80% Indica / 20% Sativa THC above 20%.
Blueberry Skunk produces a powerful high with extremely relaxing effects that may leave you yearning for your pillow. The buds of this strain are large and dense with forest green and deep blue hues, giving them the appearance of a jumbo-sized blueberry. The flavors are extremely fruity and skunky with undertones of sugar and spice, with aromas that are similarly strong and true to its name.
The Blueberry Skunk high is one of immense relaxation, beginning slow and heady with waves of tingles and heaviness as it builds throughout the body. The sinking begins almost immediately but is not so strong that it overpowers the giggles or the munchies. This giddy phase is the longest lasting, going on for hours and hours until you finally start to feel the weight of your eyelids. The uplifting euphoria that has ebbed and flowed throughout your high is now in full effect, sending you off to Dreamland with a warm buzz and a tension-free body.
This is a lovely late evening strain if you are looking to unwind after a long day, or if you are a night owl try it before bed for long lasting and well deserved rest.
ChemDawg (Thai or Nepalese Sativa Landraces X ?) THC 15-20%
Chemdawg is a legendary strain with an uncertain genetic history. While it is thought to be crossed from Thai and Nepalese sativa landraces by U.S. breeders, many have laid claim to this strain’s creation. Chemdawg’s origin stories include one account of a complicated seed exchange among fellow growers at a Grateful Dead concert and another tale pinning the strain’s parentage on a Colorado strain called Dog Bud (so named for its tendency to make the smoker roll over like a dog). Whatever its beginnings, Chemdawg has become a staple in the U.S. cannabis market for its unique taste and upbeat, energetic high. It has also been used to crossbreed several popular and successful strains. Chemdawg’s THC content has been measured at between 15% and 20%.
Chemdawg has medium-sized buds that look slightly different from those of hybrid or pure indica lineage. Long and tapered rather than popcorn-like, the flowers have relatively loose and wispy leaves. The spring green leaves are covered in sticky white trichomes, lending buds a silver-white appearance. The sticky flowers are threaded through with red to orange pistils. Chemdawg has a smell reminiscent of diesel fuel. The pungent flowers also give off odors of earthy musk and some pine. This strain has smooth smoke that tastes sour when inhaled. On the exhale, Chemdawg’s smoke betrays its signature diesel taste with an ammonia-like tang that hits the top of the palate.
The high from Chemdawg hits quickly, sometimes before users have had a chance to finish appreciating its distinctive diesel aroma. Smokers may experience a sharpening of the senses and an increased hyper-awareness of their surroundings. This initially disorienting head high becomes more productively cerebral and introspective in the right set and setting. Chemdawg can lend itself to exuberant conversation. Its ability to amplify sensory experiences also makes it particularly good for creative endeavors. Many users report a palpable sense of physical relaxation -- although nothing near couchlock -- leading to some speculation that Chemdawg has some indica in its genetics as well. Chemdawg’s strong cerebral high has made it valuable in treating some of the symptoms associated with stress, anxiety, and even PTSD. Some fans of the strain describe relief from chronic pain and migraines as well. Because of its potency and mental focus, Chemdawg has the potential to trigger the kind of manic, recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia. As such, even users with a high tolerance for THC are advised to moderate their intake accordingly.
Chemdawg’s potency has made it a valuable strain for crossbreeding. Its descendant strains include the phenotype Chemdawg 91as well as the hugely popular hybrids Sour Diesel and
