Information about Kali Dog:
Time and time again, dogs prove themselves to be man’s best friend. They are reliable companions that stay true all throughout our loves. And, in times of adversity, comfort us to the best of their abilities. It is to this end that the Kali Dog strain works perfectly.
While it may not exactly be like the four-legged friend, Kali Dog provides users with a reprieve against a variety of medical conditions. It eases away pain and temporarily appeases symptoms of certain mental issues. Moreover, it delivers a potent cerebral high that ups endorphin, the chemical in the brain responsible for happiness.
Developing such a helpful hybrid was easy. Royal Queen Seeds only had to pick a strain with a proven track record of uplifting its patrons. And what better choice is there than OG Kush, the original Ocean Grown herb that parented most of the West Coast varieties? Next, the breeders paired it with Sour Diesel to enhance its tangy yet zesty terpene profile and add a tinge of diesel.
Kali Dog boasts THC levels of 17% to 20%. Apart from its medicinal value, it is a wonderful party strain and is a great addition to the grow room. No wonder it has dominated the cannabis industry for the past 20 years.

Kali Dog delivers a fast-acting high worthy of its parents, OG Kush and Sour Diesel. Its cerebral buzz, marked largely by an uplifting rush, starts immediately after the first puff of its delicious smoke.
Feeling upbeat, many users beam with a happiness that can only radiate from within. It inspires a keen interest in subjects and tasks that ignite one’s creativity. Those with work ahead of them take advantage of the mental clarity by working on projects for hours or, at least, until they are completed.
Despite the many hours that go by, no notion of tiredness or lethargy exists as users stay motivated through the reinvigorating effects of Kali Dog. A surge of energy wakes the body and keeps tensions away. In their place is total relaxation that soothes the muscles so enthusiasts can move as much as they want.
Kali Dog is famous for its pungent fragrance of sour lemons with subtle undertones of diesel fuel, a trait passed on by its Sour Diesel parent. Keeping it from completely overwhelming the senses is the scent of wet soil.
Carrying over to Kali Dog’s flavors are its strong sour overtones of lemon and diesel. While its terpene profile may not be agreeable to some, the citric taste is a delight to many. On the exhale, it leaves an earthy aftertaste enhanced by fuel.
Marijuana use usually comes with dehydration. This is common as certain cannabinoids tend to interfere with the production of moisture. While both red eyes and a cottonmouth are easily mitigated by downing a few glasses of water, a dry throat cannot be avoided. Still, users may hydrate as much as possible before, during, and after the session.
In high doses, Kali Dog can sometimes trigger anxiety especially in people prone to the condition. Thankfully, this is rare. If anything, it is the result of overconsuming the strain. To some degree, some may also experience temporary dizziness. As such, caution must always be practiced when using marijuana.
Kali Dog provides comfort to users with a myriad of conditions. It decreases high levels of stress through its euphoric high. At the same time, it stabilizes moods and helps users going through depression, PTSD, and anxiety manage their mental illness.
Apart from the recreational high it induces, THC remains valuable to the medical community for its analgesic properties. In soothing the body, it eases away various types of pain and aches beginning from the temples. It even has the capacity to lower intraocular pressure, a condition that leads to glaucoma if left unchecked.
One of the best times to use Kali Dog is right before a meal. The bud encourages a hearty appetite so users currently dealing with eating disorders like anorexia can eat a proper meal. On the other hand, as an antiemetic, it keeps users with bulimia or patients currently undergoing chemotherapy from vomiting.
Kali Dog has the typical structure of a Sativa-leaning plant. It grows tall and stretches massively during the flowering stage. Interestingly, it is shorter and more compact when cultivated indoors. Still, it responds well to early topping and could even do with a little trim every now and then.
Surprisingly, Kali Dog is a hound that chews more than it can bite. A heavy feeder, the strain rarely ever suffers from nutrient burn. Moreover, it readily eats away bloom boosters without much ado.
One thing though, Kali Dog is quite sensitive to moisture in the air. It is prone to problems such as bud rot, mold, and mildew. As such, it may be difficult to cultivate the plant in damp weather. For this reason, many prefer growing their strains in controlled environments so factors such as lighting, heat, humidity can easily be adjusted. Odor control systems like carbon filters may need to be in place though since the bud tends to fill the room with its pungent scent.
Kali Dog blossoms between 9 to 10 weeks, shorter than the average flowering period of most Sativa-leaning strains. A vigorous producer, it yields between 18 to 19 ounces of buds per square meter.
Outdoors, Kali Dog flowers between the second to the fourth week of October. It yields a hefty 21 to 23 ounces of buds per plant.
