The Stardawg strain is popular among cannabis connoisseurs because of its hardcore potency and pungency that you can notice by its scent. It is not surprising because of the above-average THC level it has.
This strain is a hybrid between the Tres Dawg, an Indica-dominant strain with Chemdawg influence, and the Chemdawg 4, which is a Chemdawg phenotype.
Many say that this strain came from the Bay Area in California, while the others say that it is from a dog bud bag from Colorado brought to Massachusetts in the early 90s. The Top Dawg Seed Company created this strain.
The Stardawg’s name is due to its frosty appearance. Trichomes covered the buds resembling the stars.
It is 60 to 90 percent Sativa, which makes it a useful strain for providing energy instead of relaxation.
The dense buds are small to medium in size and have high resin content. Its color is diesel-like. The color is dark green with orange or red-colored hairs that are not obvious because of the thick resins.
The taste is sour like diesel. It is also earthy and piney. It provides a thick smoke that induces coughing.
The smell is almost the same as its taste. The scent is sour and musky with notes of diesel fuel.
The aroma is strong and funky in a good way, although unpleasant. Cannabis enthusiasts love this kind of smell because it only proves how potent and effective this strain is. The scent also tends to linger.
Because the Stardawg strain is Sativa-dominant, expect it provides more energy than relaxation. It gives a buzz that is head-heavy, which may last up to three hours. The effects last longer compared to the average. Therefore, if you are looking for a body-heavy kind of buzz, better look for Indica-dominant strains or other strains.
The Stardawg makes the users feel happy and euphoric, which makes it a useful strain for alleviating depression. It makes the users talkative and friendly without affecting their day’s activities.
Because it is a Sativa-dominant strain, it can make the users feel creative and focused. Users can also utilize this strain for treatment against anxiety disorders and stress.
The Stardawg can be an effective treatment against fatigue because of the high level of energy it provides. It mitigates some digestive problems, which include loss of appetite.
Users also consume this strain to prevent nausea.
This strain can be effective against mild pain. However, if you are looking for strains that can treat severe pain, you should use other strains.
Like any other cannabis, the Stardawg can cause dry eyes and dry mouth. Therefore, it is best to have a water bottle nearby when taking this strain. Include eye drops too.
For new users who are not careful, they may experience jittery, dizziness, and headache. That is why if you are a novice user, try a less potent strain before the hardcore ones.
The THC level of the Stardawg strain is 16 to 28 percent, which is above-average. The CBD content can be less than 1 percent.
Aside from the CBD and THC, this strain also contains terpenes. Some of these terpenes provide its spicy, peppery, earthy, and citrusy scents and flavors. These terpenes also give some of its therapeutic benefits like anti-inflammation and anxiety and stress relief.
