With such a wide variety of strains in today’s market, how do you know which one is right for you? Ranging from mild and mellow to strong and striking, there’s something out there for everyone.
If you’re on the hunt for a strong and potent, high-THC strain, we’ve got a few recs that are a must-try.
Chem D Strain
ChemicalDawg, also known as Chem D, has a mysterious pedigree — nobody knows exactly which strains it’s derived from or where it gets its potency. What users of Chem D do know is that it’s one of the most potent strains around. It’s been used to create other robust varieties, which are also popular. However, Chem D still holds its own even against newer hybrids.
The dominant terpene in this strain is Caryophyllene, which contributes to this strain’s pungent, diesel-like aroma. The robust aroma is one of this variety’s notable characteristics, but by no means its most impressive feature.
This is not a strain for the inexperienced smoker. If you’re looking for an entry-level strain, this probably isn’t the product for you. If you’re looking for an absolute powerhouse, though, Chem D will suit you down to the ground.
Chem D is not a slow-onset strain. It tends to hit pretty rapidly — and reasonably hard. It produces a sense of heaviness in your body (it’s not conducive to dancing or physical activity), but the high is very cerebral. Chem D produces a powerful euphoria in most users, leaving you relaxed, happy, and uplifted. It’s one of the better strains for tackling stress and anxiety and is popular among those who want something to elevate a low mood.
If you’re a creative type, this strain is a good choice. Many people who’ve tried Chem D say that it has helped to get their inventive motors running.
Many people use cannabis specifically for pain relief, but not all strains are very effective for this. Chem D is very good for pain. Between one-quarter and one-half of users report a significant reduction in their pain symptoms. This strain helps those who suffer from migraines, arthritis, and other painful conditions that may not respond well to conventional treatment.
Although it’s relaxing, this strain does not make you sleepy. A small percentage of users have mentioned that it helps with their insomnia, but this may not be the most effective strain for that purpose. While Chem D may leave your body feeling heavy, it has an energizing effect on the mind. That makes it great for creative endeavors but not so good for sleep.
It’s common for smokers to experience a bit of dry mouth after using Chem D, so make sure you have plenty of fluid on hand. A few people have mentioned that Chem D can leave their eyes a little dry. It can leave some users feeling noticeably dizzy, at least at first, although this usually passes quickly. Other adverse effects, like paranoia or headaches, are rare with this strain.
High-THC Content Strains
If you’re a fan of high-THC strains, you should give some of the strains derived from Chem D. OG Kush teams the potency of Chem D with Hindu Kush’s relaxing qualities. This strain is uplifting and euphoric, perfect for de-stressing and letting go of anxiety. It’s deceptively potent and prone to giving users the munchies.
Another Chem D-derived strain is Sour Diesel. This is a sativa strain produced by crossing Chem D with Super Skunk. It’s very potent, with a fast onset. It’s great for stress and anxiety and is popular with users who need something to help take the edge off their depression or pain.
A third possibility, unrelated to Chem D, is a strain called THC Bomb. This is an energizing and uplifting hybrid, with a range of benefits for pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
As mentioned earlier, Chem D and other high-THC varieties are not great if you’re looking for a beginner strain. New users should try something less potent, such as the relaxing Cinderella or the soporific Hindu Kush. These are much more beginner-friendly.
Whatever you’re looking for, your local One Plant’s Florida dispensary is the place to find your ideal strain for pickup or delivery including Chem D.
