Lots of people love it. Lots of people are sick of it. But why is Stardawg so common in the UK?
It’s a question I to hear more and more as Stardawg has become one of the most ubiquitous cannabis strains in the UK over the last couple of years.
But just what is it about Stardawg that has made it a staple of the UK cannabis market?
Let’s find out…
1. It’s potent
First bred in California by the Top Dawg Seed Company, Stardawg became an instant classic when it made its way across the Atlantic to the UK thanks to its very high THC content and potent effects.
Apparently, it routinely tests at over 23% THC.
2. It looks amazing
Probably the reason for its name, properly-grown Stardawg is covered in a thick coating of white sparkling trichomes.
These resin sacks cover deep green buds with a few orange hairs poking through. Nugs are usually quite dense and well-formed.
3. Famous ancestors
Part of Stardawg’s appeal is also its impressive lineage – two famous U.S strains, Chemdawg 4 and Tresdawg.
The legendary Chemdawg is said to have originated from a bag of dog bud that was brought over to Massachusetts from Colorado back in the early 1990’s.
4. High yield
After about 8 weeks of growing, Stardawg blossoms with fistfulls of shimmering buds. For a plant that doesn’t grow too high, it produces a very healthy yield.
This makes it a attractive to the commercial grower looking to cash in on a pungent and well-loved strain.
5. Strong taste
Distinctive and strong, Stardawg has the well-known piney taste common in the Chemdawg family. However, it also has pertinent gassy flavours and sour notes.
It’s not one for those who prefer sweet or floral flavours, but rather for those who likes throat-tickling gassy, almost chemical-like notes.
