The folk history behind the Chemdog strains is a tale worth the telling:
It was 1991 and Grateful Dead were appearing at Deer Creek Amphitheatre,
cannabis breeder, Chemdog, met up with joebrand and pbud in the parking lot
and they sold him an ounce of weed for $500. Contact details were exchanged and
it was arranged to ship two more ounces of the weed to Chemdog on the east
The way Chemdog tells it is: one ounce was seedless and the other had 13
seeds. It was from these thirteen seeds that a legend grew; the Chemdog strain
reputedly boasts some of the most superior cannabis clones in the USA.
Chemdog planted four of his thirteen seeds: one was male and trashed; the
remaining three females became Chemdawg (now referred to as 91
Chemdawg), Chemdawg a (now Chemdawg’s Sister), and Chemdawg b.
Move forward by a decade to 2001, and we find Chemdog and his girlfriend
germinating (or attempting to germinate) three more seeds. With remarkable
creativity, the three new seeds were labeled c, d, and e; e
didn’t germinate and c was rubbish, only d turned out to be any good. Four more
were germinated in 2006, from which came the Reunion strain. And now
there are two seeds left in Chemdog’s stash.
As if to reinforce the legendary status of this weed, unless you live in New
York City it is very difficult to obtain.
