Dawgfather OG is not one that strikes users within seconds after the first few puffs. Instead, it takes its sweet time, around 15 minutes, before swarming the mind in a mild euphoria that gradually intensifies. It clears the mind, calming the nerves against strong worries.
In its place, there is an innate sense of happiness that improves the mood. \Preparing snacks ahead of time is a good idea. Although subtle, the mild invigoration stimulates the appetite. Having some food around removes the hassle of having to get up and go to the kitchen.
The Indica buzz starts two to three hours after the first puff. It relaxes the muscles, releases tension from the joints, and soothes the body. No doubt, one feels more limber with regard movement. However, it does not entice users to move around or complete tasks. At the end, the tingling sensation develops into a sedating heaviness that settles in the limbs. It makes the eyelids droop until, eventually, users fall fast asleep without even knowing it.

Moreover, its sedating properties enhance the overall quality and quantity of sleep.
Dawgfather OG is a relatively tall plant that some home growers may have difficulty cultivating it indoors, especially when designated growing areas have low vertical space. Thus, keeping it short is essential. Otherwise, it could cramp small spaces.
It works best under a Screen of Green setup which manages its height and brings up the lower nodes so that it absorbs similar amounts of light. At the same time, it helps create a bushier plant by weaving the branches into a net situated above the current canopy. Together with another technique called Topping, it could produce multiple budding sites that enhances the yield while shortening the vegetative period.
Outdoors, it has a preference for sunny and semi-humid environments similar to that of the Mediterranean. However, this is not to say that the plant does not perform well in the northern hemisphere where the days are shorter, and the temperatures are lower. It not only has a sturdy frame but also excellent immunity against many unpredictable elements such as light rains or a sudden breeze.
Exposing the plant to cooler temperatures will bring out its striking colors of azure and royal purple. Against a backdrop of sparkling trichomes, it produces an eye-catching similarity to gems.
It takes Dawgfather OG between 8 to 10 weeks of flowering to fully mature into harvestable buds. Once ready for harvest, growers can expect at least 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
Highly adaptable, it should come as no surprise that Dawgfather OG matures earlier than most Sativa-leaning strains. By the second to the last week of October, each plant will produce up to 16 ounces of buds per plant.
