About This Strain:
Ghost OG is one of the myriad strains and cuttings known as OG Kush
This particular cut is thought by some to be the mother of all OG Kush strains. It came from the OverGrow.com forums. A forum member by the name of OrgnKid passed the cut to a forum member named Ghost, giving the strain its name. No one knows the exact genetics of the strain, but it is believed to be originally a true Kush strain from the Kush mountains in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Like most Kush strains, it can be a heavy sedative that should only be used at night.
The original, true Ghost OG is clone only, though others have crossed clones of Ghost OG with other OG Kush strains to create seeds. True Ghost OG can be grown both indoors and out and needs between 60 and 65 days to flower. It is well suited for the Screen of Green growing technique. The lower branches should be well pruned to let the top flourish and grow heavy.
Chemdawg is a legendary strain with an uncertain genetic history. While it is thought to be crossed from Thai and Nepalese sativa landraces by U.S. breeders, many have laid claim to this strain’s creation. Chemdawg’s origin stories include one account of a complicated seed exchange among fellow growers at a Grateful Dead concert and another tale pinning the strain’s parentage on a Colorado strain called Dog Bud (so named for its tendency to make the smoker roll over like a dog). Whatever its beginnings, Chemdawg has become a staple in the U.S. cannabis market for its unique taste and upbeat, energetic high. It has also been used to crossbreed several popular and successful strains. Chemdawg’s THC content has been measured at between 15% and 20%.
Chemdawg has medium-sized buds that look slightly different from those of hybrid or pure indica lineage. Long and tapered rather than popcorn-like, the flowers have relatively loose and wispy leaves. The spring green leaves are covered in sticky white trichomes, lending buds a silver-white appearance. Due to the combination of their loose structure and resinous texture, buds of Chemdawg are particularly difficult to break up by hand — users preparing flowers for joints or pipes will have an easier time with a grinder. The sticky flowers are threaded through with red to orange pistils. Chemdawg has a smell reminiscent of diesel fuel (which many say is the source of the “chem” in its name). The pungent flowers also give off odors of earthy musk and some pine. As long as flowers are properly cured, this strain has smooth smoke that tastes sour and when inhaled. On the exhale, Chemdawg’s smoke betrays its signature diesel taste with an ammonia-like tang that hits the top of the palate.
The high from Chemdawg hits quickly, sometimes before users have had a chance to finish appreciating its distinctive diesel aroma. Smokers may experience a sharpening of the senses and an increased hyper-awareness of their surroundings. This initially disorienting head high becomes more productively cerebral and introspective in the right set and setting. Chemdawg can lend itself to exuberant conversation. Its ability to amplify sensory experiences also makes it particularly good for creative endeavors. Many users report a palpable sense of physical relaxation — although nothing near couchlock — leading to some speculation that Chemdawg has some indica in its genetics as well. Chemdawg’s strong cerebral high has made it valuable in treating some of the symptoms associated with stress, anxiety, and even PTSD. Some fans of the strain describe relief from chronic pain and migraines as well. Because of its potency and mental focus, Chemdawg has the potential to trigger the kind of manic, recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia. As such, even users with a high tolerance for THC are advised to moderate their intake accordingly.
Chemdawg is a strain whose cultivation is better suited to more experienced growers. For a while, it could only be grown as a clone if a clipping was obtained from a mature plant; now, however, many seed companies sell packaged seeds of Chemdawg. It is more often grown indoors than outdoors, as it requires a good amount of tending to resist mold and mildew. Growing indoors takes some vigilance — the sativa-typical plants often grow over 5 feet tall, and as such, growers should bend and prune them early in the vegetative stage in order to keep them at a manageable height. Plants flower within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and typically offer a very high yield: growers can expect between 65 and 75 grams, or 2.3 and 2.6 ounces, per square footage of plant. Such high yields on such relatively tall plants can make for branches that sag under the weight of the flowers; growers should use tall supports like wooden dowels in order to keep plants upright in the flowering stage. Finally, because of Chemdawg’s pungency, any growers preoccupied with secrecy or discretion should invest in indoor odor-control measures like carbon air filters or exhaust fans.
Chemdawg’s potency has made it a valuable strain for crossbreeding. Its descendant strains include the phenotype Chemdawg 91 as well as the hugely popular hybrids Sour Diesel and OG Kush. More likely to keep users awake then put them to sleep if consumed at night, it has an almost eye-watering pungency and energizing and thought-stimulating effects. Chemdawg can be a great choice for accomplishing tasks, as well as for more celebratory circumstances as it keeps heads buzzing and conversation flowing.
The Emerald Triangle is perhaps the most famous triangle on earth for cannabis enthusiasts, however Triangle Kush may be a close second. This indica strain from Florida is named as a tribute to Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami – the 3 giants of cannabis production in the state, and potentially the South in general.
With a average THC levels a little over 20% and low CBD content, it is believed that the Triangle Kush was derived from the OG Kush of Florida, which in turn is linked to Hindu Kush, Lemon Thai and Chemdawg.
The plant and its buds have a very pungent and diesel-like aroma. Upon deeper inhales, a skunk undertone is also apparent, perhaps due to its strong OG Kush heritage.
When smoking Triangle Kush buds expect heavy flavors to hit you immediately with your first inhale. The spicy taste is evident but the sour aftertaste of lemony flavors is what the strain is known for. This sourness is quite heavy and comes with hints of pine and earthy flavor, making for an interesting taste.
This strain’s effects are gradual, but ultimately build up to something beautiful. Triangle Kush makes you feel relaxed, and induces bouts of creativity, and is ideal for various types of artists. Users often engage in deep conversations after consuming this strain, because it creates a drive for discussion, and can make you more focused. Euphoria kicks in soon and has a lasting effect. However, it might make you a little dizzy.
The Triangle Kush also has some potent medical qualities. Since it makes you completely relaxed, it is good for those under stress. It helps you get rid of your anxiety. And it is perfect to relieve you of bodily pains, especially back pain and headaches.
Hailing from Florida, the Triangle Kush usually flower at approximately 70 days. It has low yield both indoors and outdoors, but it can become quite tall during the initial 21 days of flowering. It is grown best in dry climates, with a high CO2 content and warm environment of up to 88 degrees. Optimum soil pH for growing the Triangle Kush is between 5.8 and 6.0.
