Information about Stardawg:
Stardawg may very well be the most potent strain in the lineage of the legendary Chemdawg #4. In a way, naming this strain with a star is apt and justified. Because this is a Sativa-dominant strain, you might expect it to bring a powerful cerebral high. Using a small amount, this strain could bring out the creativity in you. It could also give you a boost in energy level. But use more of it, and it leaves you with a buzzing head high that feels like you are taking a journey among the stars.
While some assume that this strain is 60% Sativa, others have agreed that its Sativa side is way more than that at up to 90%. Regardless, this is a Sativa-dominant strain that took a lot of years before it came to be.
From one of the most popular cannabis strains in the world, Chemdawg #4, the breeder crossed it with Tres Dawg to create Stardawg. The consensus is that this is the most potent strain in the Chem line.
Stardawg is sometimes spelled as Star Dawg, while other have called it Star Dog.

Stardawg hits fast and hard, rushing in a buzzing head high that induces creative thinking, and that is with only a few puffs. Once you start using more, you are taken on a ride to space, literally. Some users say it is more like a psychedelic trip that has the same effect as drugs such as LSD. So, a word of advice here… do not underestimate the potency of this cannabis. Try smoking too much and you find yourself locked on the couch while your mind drifts in space.
The head high you experience in using Stardawg in a small amount helps your mind think, but for most people, it boosts the morale by uplifting one’s mood to new heights that makes one feel extreme elation, one of euphoria and immense feeling of joy.
Although minimal, the Indica side will have an effect on the body too. Once it creeps in, not only does the mental head high settle down, but the whole body feels more relaxed.
Stardawg reminds you of a starship that blasts off to space. It has the pungent and earthy smell of fuel with notes of pine. Overall, despite the strong odor, most consumers should find its fragrance pleasant enough.
The strong smell of fuel is also present in its taste too. It has the unmistakable smell of fuel with strong hints of pine that reminds you of Pinesol. This is not the kind of taste that is universally accepted as pleasant, though. But once you get used to it, it gets better and better. Definitely, its acquired taste makes Stardawg one of the few strains first-time users should stay away from.
Extremely potent, Stardawg also comes with adverse reactions that you are going to experience. Almost always, smokers would feel their mouth and eyes drying.
The strong head high can cause some smokers to feel dizzy or have a mild headache. In some cases, and mostly due to overusing, the sudden cerebral high might prove too much causing momentary episodes of panic.
If there is one thing that the Stardawg does well, it’s to take away the thoughts and worries from your mind with a powerful mental high. Send away those negativities to the stars and you are left feeling relaxed. Medical cannabisusers find this strain a great mood uplifter and one that could for a couple of hours or so, make them feel euphoric and happy. And with that, there is less stress, which helps in managing anxiety issues.
For those suffering from chronic pains and aches, Stardawg might be of benefit in mild cases. Besides helping in alleviating the symptoms of pain, it is also beneficial in dealing with bouts of nausea.
As the effects of the Sativa side subsides, you may start to feel hungry. For that reason, this is a good strain for those who needs help in improving their appetite.
Stardawg is mostly used by recreational users. For medical cannabis users, while this strain does have medical benefits, there are other strains that are better suited. Because most of the medical use of cannabis deals with the body, a better choice would be Indica-dominant strains with higher CBD.
Stardawg can be grown in an outdoor or indoor setting. We do not have a lot of information but what we are aware of is that it seems to thrive better indoor in a controlled setting. It does need some work, that includes topping and a little stress training. For that reason, this may not be the best strain to grow if one is new to growing cannabis.
The flowering time for Stardawg indoor is around 63 to 73 days. It does not produce a high yield as it could give only around 3 to 4 ounces per square meter.
Outdoor, Stardawg should be ready for harvest during the early part of October to the middle part of the month with a yield of 3 ounces per plant.
