“You really should get to know Chemdog.”
“OK, is Chemdog a strain or a guy?”
You’d be surprised how frequently this conversation occurs. One of the more amazing aspects of legal weed in Massachusetts is the duality of Chemdog. For those of you new to cannabis in the commonwealth, Chemdog is a strain and it’s also a person.
Chemdog, The Person
The person is none other than Greg Krzanowski, a longtime grower and cannabis enthusiast who somewhere along the line picked up the nickname “Chemdog.”
Chemdog, the human, first ran across the plant at a Grateful Dead concert in 1991 in Indiana. He was told it was from a strain called “Dogbud.” He fell in love with the flavor, brought more, and came back home to Massachusetts. He planted 13 seeds, one became Chem 91. Also known as Chemdog.
He later focused on cultivating and crossbreeding other Chem strains from the original plant as well as Smash Hits, coming up with all sorts of combos such as Chem D and Lemon Strain, Kushmints and Purple Chem Smalls.
Chemdog, The Strain
Chemdog OG is the Sativa-dominant hybrid strain he’s kept alive and cultivated for more than 30 years, including stashing the mother plant in closets, apartments, and other places as he moved around the country. He always made sure the plant survived federal drug raids, and has made a variety of clones of it.
If you’re specifically searching out Chemdog, the strain, get ready for a wonderful blend of flavors and a satisfying experience. The various Chemdog OG strains are known to have smooth, distinct aromas and give a boost of creativity. It genetically is believed to have OG Kush and Sour Diesel in its parentage.
