Skunk Dawg is a popular strain among Sativa lovers. Used in the morning, its long-lasting uplifting buzz allows one to seize the day. This is because its clearheaded high brings out a user’s full potential.
Information about Skunk Dawg:
As its name implies, Skunk Dawg is the offspring of two mainstay strains. One is Super Skunk, an Indica-dominant herb with incredibly relaxing effects. The other is the legendary Chem Dog or, as it is more popularly known, Chemdawg. A versatile herb, its high levels of THC make it popular among recreational and medical users alike. Both, however, are potent in their own right.
From them, Skunk Dawg gained its skyrocketing THC levels of up to 22%. It also gained a space in the cannabis community as a powerhouse. While generally recommended for more experienced users, beginners may still enjoy the strain with the help of a seasoned friend.

Skunk Dawg’s initial onset is marked by a reinvigorating rush of euphoria. It clears the mind and instills a sense of happiness from within. As the soaring high wraps users in pure bliss, it reinvigorates one’s outlook in life.
Feeling renewed, the upbeat disposition becomes an ally against another dreary day at work. It inspires a curiosity for projects while allowing the mind to abstract profound ideas. Along with improved focus, users have no problem staying locked on tasks for long periods of time. In excess, however, the effects prove to be counterproductive.
Starting from the temples, a light but buzzing pressure gradually soothes the muscles until each limb is freed of tension. Though it envelops the user in total relaxation, its body buzz is not of the sedating or lethargic sort. Instead, it allows one to unwind after a hard day’s work.
Due to its potency, Skunk Dawg is extremely pungent. In fact, just opening the lid to its amber container releases its sour citrus and skunk aroma. Broken apart or ground up, the buds release a floral scent with notes of damp earth.
Smoking Skunk Dawg truly brings out its flavor profile. Drawn in, its once mild citric notes burst into a myriad of fruity flavors. Of which, the most obvious are berries, lemons, and oranges. As the smoke is exhaled, spicy notes blended with wood and skunk linger in the palate.
Skunk Dawg strips moisture away from two areas – the eyes and the mouth. Despite this, neither are a cause for concern. Besides being mild, both are easily mitigated by drinking a glass of water. Although, as the cerebral buzz slams the mind, others may experience a momentary dizziness.
The sheer potency and Sativa effects of Skunk Dawg are enough to induce paranoia in some users. Meanwhile, those going through temperamental problems may find their anxieties triggered. While the former can be avoided through pacing, no amount of moderation will ease the latter. As such, it is best to avoid smoking the bud altogether.
Though mostly used for recreation, Skunk Dawg, like its parents, has undeniable medical benefits. Its THC, CBD, cannabinoids, and terpenes all play a role in its ability to provide relief. Together, they work wonders for people suffering from either mental or physical afflictions.
A potent Sativa-leaning bud, its clearheaded high calms users with anxiety. By removing chaotic, unwanted, or self-destructive thoughts from the mind, it stabilizes the mood and enhances it. For this reason, it can also be used to appease depression and other symptoms of stress.
In high levels, THC can be utilized as a painkiller. Beginning from the temples, it relaxes the muscles and relieves the body of tension. And, together with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD and terpenes, Skunk Dawg soothes redness and reduces swelling.

Growing Skunk Dawg can be an arduous task even for experienced growers. Typical of Sativa leaning strains, its stalks grow tall and thin. Sometimes, it may even be weak or too sensitive. When exposed to too much heat, cold, or humidity, its leaves, roots, and stem can rot and die off. As such, it requires the expert care of a seasoned grower.
There is no reason to doubt Skunk Dawg’s performance outdoors. After all, it does yield better and produce larger, more flavorful nugs. But, the unpredictability of weather, temperature, and the presence of bugs can severely hamper its growth. For this reason, commercial breeders prefer controlled environments like greenhouses.
Skunk Dawg releases an overpowering pungent scent during the flowering stage. Installing carbon filters is usually enough to dispel the odor. But, aspiring home growers may also opt for air filters or odor neutralizers.
With that said, it should take Skunk Dawg about 10 to 12 weeks for each square meter to flower up to 16 ounces of buds.
Outdoors, each Skunk Dawg plant should yield more than 16 ounces of prime buds by the last week of October.
