This strain is a bit of a mystery when it comes to its origins and genetics. What we know for sure is that Chemdawg is the source of other popular strains like Sour Diesel and OG Kush. Many Canadians love Chemdawg before it gives you high happiness and easing the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Usually, people will smoke a bit of Chemdawg before they start hiking, like when they are still at home. This will give them the motivation they need to finally get out of the house and do something.
