Stardawg Strain

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 Stardawg is a Sativa-dominant strain, you might expect it to bring a powerful cerebral high.

Using a small amount, this strain could bring out 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.

It is sometimes spelled as Star Dawg, while others have called it Star Dog. The consensus is that this is the most potent strain in the Chem line.

Stardawg Effects

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 terpenes

The most notable terpenes of this weed strain include caryophyllene, L-Limonene, myrcene, carene, and humulene.

Aroma & Flavor

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 remind you of Pinesol.

The immense euphoria and body relaxation that Stardawg brings make it a go-to choice for those seeking a potent cannabis strain. Find strains with similar traits in our shop.

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.

Stardawg Adverse reactions

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 cannabis 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 need 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.

Growing Stardawg Strain

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, which 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.

  1. Just away to harvest dome fadtbuds Stardawg, I love the strain but this pack of beans and some other folks I know agree that it maybe have been rushed the plants seem to throw out all kinds of phenos, and it’s like the best pheno hasn’t been selected and bred. My grow space has me scratching my head, all plants from the same source, no variables through out the grow yet I have a dawg plant thats maybe 2ft by 2ft, and then I have another that is 5 to 6 foot..better breeding and pheno selection is required imo

  2. 3_4 Oz per square meter, that’s what amateurs get, I. Been running this strain for quite a while now , 5 week veg and 10week flower , 4 plants 4 600w hps gets me around 16 Oz a plant , I’d recommend you leave this girl to flower and extra week (or count after the transition week )

  3. I dont see how ppl say it doesn’t yield well. If you use rdwc and stick to the usual abc steps to growing weed you will get good yeilds. 6-12 oz per plant.(drift your ph 6.3 start of veg and work down to 5.5. Likes reasonable warm temps throughout.

  4. I’m growing stardawg and that is really easy strain to grow what I did realised builds up buds mainly on to main coral and few small brunches with not to little but kind a small nugets Unfortunately is still growing was left until Harvey time about 2-3 Weeks so I haven’t smoke yet my own pretty lady hehe but it’s looks so far sooooo taste

  5. I have grown this many times and it is best managed indoors, if managed well this is will produce a fine crop. This plant can produce five or six ounce per plant if you pay it the right attention i.e. topping at the right time, pruning etc…. A fine plant
