Cannabis culture comes with its fair share of urban legends and Delta 9 Bio Tech’s 13 Dawgs is rich in lore. Delta 9 Bio Tech is among Canada’s most respected producers of medical marijuana. As such, 13 Dawgs is a strain commonly hailed for its medicinal benefits, but it has excellent recreational qualities as well.
13 Dawgs is an even 50-50 split of Indica and Sativa traits. It was bred from strains G13 and Chemdawg. Other famous decedents of Chemdawg include OG Kush and Sour Diesel, both of which are similarly shrouded in mystery.
The mystery begins with the G13 strain. Some stories suggest that G-13 was bred at an elusive, secret operation at the University of Mississippi in the late 1960s. Some of these stories include the mention of the FBI and/or the CIA being key players in the breeding of 13 Dawg’s mysterious parent plant. Though most of this is likely to be untrue, it lends intrigue to the strain.
13 Dawgs has extensive medicinal value for those afflicted by stress, depressive and attention deficit disorders, chronic pain and migraines, and other chronic pains. That said, it’s not without recreational acclaim. With an medium THC content of 19%, 13 Dawgs users may experience psychotropic effects.
Because of its genetic commonalities with Sour Diesel, 13 Dawg’s fragrance profile includes the delightful sour scent of lemon citrus with some notes of diesel fuel, pine, and earth. The flavor of this strain is similar to its scent, though some users may taste grapefruit instead of lemon.
Unlike strains with a more dominant Sativa or Indica quality, 13 Dawgs is balanced in its ability to both invigorate its patients with increased focus while giving a relaxing full-body calm. After a single hit of this strain, smokers have reported a sudden head high that inexperienced users may equate to dizziness. After a minute or so, a tingling sensation takes hold in the whole body.
13 Dawgs is an especially useful strain for those planning to embark on creative endeavors such as playing music, drawing and painting, or even just a better way to do homework. In excess, some users experience a heightened state of anxiety and mild headaches.
Delta 9 Bio Tech keeps its seeds under lock and key, so the independent cultivation of this strain is not possible from germination. Instead, it’s possible to clone it if you’re able to get your hands on a branch to propagate. In this event, it’s best to reserve 13 Dawgs for indoor grow operations as there is no evidence to suggest it would grow well outdoors.
Indoors and in the proper conditions, 13 Dawgs can produce 10 to 12 ounces per square meter, and it will reach flowering maturity within 8 to 9 weeks.
