What is the Cannabis Strain Star Dawg?
It’s hard to know where to begin with this legendary strain; an uplifting cross between well-known strains Chemdawg 4 and Tres Dawg, this is a hybrid strain you have to try.
Chemdawg itself has a pretty interesting story; in fact, most weed lovers will know and have tried many of the Chemdawg strains. Originating from a bag of dog bud that was brought over to Massachusetts from Colorado back in the early 1990’s. The Top Dawg Seed Company has only grown and grown since then and now has generated the lineage to unbelievable heights.
One thing we love about Chemdawg is the mysterious elements of its story, with many people still believing that there are remaining original Chemdawg seeds out there somewhere just waiting to be germinated.
As you can see from its relatives, Star Dawg is no common strain, and its effects are something else, too! Star Dawg is a unique, elite strain bred to take the best of the best traits from Chemdawg and combine them with some of our favorite elements from Tres Dawg to bring something new and exciting to the ever-growing market.
As a result of clever breeding and compounding desired traits in the flowers, Star Dawg is a pungent and delicious bud to enjoy. Let’s face it, with such famous ancestors it was always going to be a great strain!
With THC levels at around 16-25%, Star Dawg is undoubtedly a strong contender; with dank qualities taken from its lineage, this 90% sativa-dominant hybrid is one of our favorites.
Star Dawg Aroma, Flavor, Appearance
The name gives this strain away, with reference to the bright and sparkling star-like trichomes that coat the deep green nugs, the only thing to separate the shine is the fiery orange hairs. The nugs are dense and small-medium in stature, but don’t be fooled, Star Dawg packs a punch with its potent aroma and taste.
Star Dawg is undoubtedly a beautiful bud to look at, and any growers out there will love the velvety texture, but its potency runs across effects as well as smell and taste. With an earthy pine aroma present in many of the Chemdawg family, Star Dawg stands out with those sour undertones and hints of diesel. Ultimately, this isn’t a strain that will welcome you in with delicate floral notes; it is a hard-core strain that is pungent in chemical-like aromas. You’ve been warned.
Cannabis connoisseurs may also be able to detect the light citrusy notes that come through upon inhaling.
If you’re into the skunky scents of Star Dawg, then you will LOVE the taste! Think lemon and pine with a massive kick of diesel – and you pretty much have Star Dawg! It also gives off a pretty impressive thick smoke, where the aroma lingers long after you’re done.

Possible Side Effects of Star Dawg
