Information about Purple Chemdawg:
Old timers should gush at the mention of Chemdawg. Among the classic marijuana strains, it is one of the most illustrious. Its fame is not only with its psychedelic effects though. A big reason is the legends that descended from it such as Sour Diesel and OG Kush, both of which have also served as genetic bases of numerous other award-winning hybrids.
Grandaddy Purple (GDP) is also another renowned strain. First released in 2003, it may be relatively young but has since captured the imagination and the taste of users worldwide.
An unidentified breeder, using these two strains, developed a predominantly Indica hybrid. It is aptly named Purple Chemdawg for a few good reasons. For instance, its scent has the heavy influence of both Chemdawg and GDP, and even its looks.
When it comes to psychedelic high, the infusion of Granddaddy Purple helps tone down Chemdawg. Instead of an intensely insane buzzing high, the hybrid leaves users on a dreamy, introspective journey.

Apart from fragrance, Chemdawg also passed on its potency. At up to 21% THC, Purple Chemdawg is not one for the beginners. That is not to say that first-timers cannot use it. If so, it is best to have an experienced companion acting as a guide and be sure to use only a tiny amount.
A fast-acting strain, Purple Chemdawg induces a euphoric head high in no time at all. It results in the sense of happiness welling inside of users. Feeling reinvigorated, most people tend to feel not only bubbly but also hyperactive. In moderation, the mental clarity and keen sense of focus it promotes can keep one locked on tasks.
Gradually, an uplifting sensation trickles down to the body. It seamlessly blends in with the cerebral high as it puts the body in relaxation. Once the Indica properties of Purple Chemdawg is in full effect, there is not much that users can do but to sit or lie down.
During this time, users often fall into deep introspection. Individuals who can tolerate THC well, on the other hand, are likely to experience a dreamy high. Either way, one thing is for sure. The relaxing quality of the numbing physical effects is unreal.
Purple Chemdawg has a strong chemical scent with equally distinct notes of grape. Apart from this, it also possesses the aroma of sweet, ripened lemons. But, that is not all. It also emits a skunky fragrance that is only noticeable upon closer inspection.
All marijuana strains cause dehydration, including Purple Chemdawg. It commonly results in cottonmouth. And, to a certain degree, some people may also experience dry eyes. Other effects are a mild headache and some dizziness. Most of the time, though, these symptoms are too mild and ignored.
Currently, the legalization of medical marijuana is spreading across the globe. Purple Chemdawg, although regarded as a recreational strain, should be an invaluable addition to the list of cannabis that has pharmacological value. It is essential for people to understand, though, that many of its benefits are to provide relief. People with illnesses need to consult with a physician before attempting self-medication.
With that said, Purple Chemdawg is a great stress buster. It delivers a mental high that energizes users after a long day of work. As it uplifts low spirits, it boosts the mood and comforts those dealing with depression and PTSD.
Besides effecting behavioral changes, this plant also has potent analgesic properties. It helps reduce or wipe out chronic pains including headaches, cramps, and backaches.
Some people, including patients undergoing treatments for severe illnesses, may need help eating. Purple Chemdawg happens to be an appetite stimulant.
Purple Chemdawg has dense and fluffy buds with light violet pistils. A sugary coat of resin contrasts its purple nugs. However, creating these flashes of color is not an easy feat. It requires more than just the basic knowledge of growing plants.
To bring out the deep purple hues, growers should expose the plants to cold environments (10 degrees lower than ambient). In this respect, indoor cultivators or home growers have an advantage adjusting temperature is more manageable than in outdoors.
Like other Indica dominant strains, Purple Chemdawg has a quick flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. When grown properly, harvest can be as much as 27 ounces per square meter.
Growing any strain outdoors is cost-effective. Of course, there are environmental conditions to watch out for, as well as possible pests. At any rate, Purple Chemdawg is quite a resilient plant. Harvest time usually falls in October in which it can yield up to 27 ounces per plant.
