Stardawg is a Sativa-dominant hybrid originally bred in the Bay Area of California as a cross between Chemdawg 4 and Tres Dawg. It likely got its name from both the crystalline trichomes that inhabit the strain (appearing like STARS) and it's Chem/TresDAWG lineage. THC levels in Stardawg are regularly above average - testing between 16 and 22 percent.
People remark on the musky, earthy scent with diesel fuel notes. Cannabis lovers appreciate the strong, funky aroma but it may be too strong for novices and first-timers. The aroma has been described as morning breath, a truck stop, roadkill skunk, and a vat full of chemicals.
These smells sound nasty, but cannabis aficionados love the dank, lingering aromatic notes as they herald the potent, mind altering effects of Stardawg. Expect the herb to be dense and frosted with resin, so much so that the dark green color with red/orange hairs is hard to see.
Medical patients choose Stardawg to help manage symptoms of fatigue, stress, and anxiety. It blunts pain, alleviates digestive issues, and inspires the munchies so people can gain weight. Others choose it in order to get to sleep at night or to manage the fallout from Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease.
Because it is a Sativa-dominant strain, people with significant medical issues might want to try a different strain with more of a body melt and pain relief. The smoke feel in the mouth is thick and may make some people cough.
People should be able to get tasks accomplished, run errands, and even go to work when consuming smaller doses of this strain as it imparts uplifting cerebral effects that can stimulate the mind. Recreational users report highs that feel like spiritual journeys and that may be too intense for newbies.
This strain is suited for daytime use, especially a wake and bake as the effects last for a long time. Stardawg has a reputation for long buzz times, two to three hours, which is longer than many strains - which need re-application after an hour or two
