history of the chemdawg family

according to this article the original chemdawg is still available in the form of a clone to select breeders around the world. just some extra information i found on chemdawg. great mother to many elite strains.

Rezdog of Reservoir Seeds recently released several Chemdawg crosses as part of his ‘Trinity’ charity auctions. The crosses included Chemdawg D x Sensi’s Hindu Kush and Snowdawg x Sensi’s Hindu Kush, Chemdawg D x Sour Diesel IBL, Snowdawg x Sour Diesel IBL, ChemHaze x Sour Diesel IBL and Giesel x Sour Diesel IBL.
We have to acknowledge the participation in this project of the legendary breeder and creator of the strain, ChemDawg, which has contributed with Guava Chem seeds and the elite clone. From this batch of seeds we selected the most stable plants and best quality to cross them with the original clone.”

The clone is 21 years old and has lost a lot of vigor, leading to a declining production. We found interesting the project of gathering the quality of ChemDawg in the seed form and bring back the vigor and productivity that every grower wants. The GuavaChem (or GuayabaChem in Spanish), is the result of the 4th generation of ChemDawg stabilized, grown by the same breeder for many years and is very close to be an IBL or Inbreeding Line, a genetic line very stable and uniform. It looks very much like the original clone, available in seed, which allows us to keep genetics for a long time and also select the best to cross with the mother.
In ’91, chemdog popped the first 4 seeds. From these seeds, one male was found and disposed of (chemdog was young, you can’t blame him). The 3 females were labeled ‘chemdawg’ (now ’91 chemdawg), ‘chemdawg a’ (now chemdawg’s sister), and ‘chemdawg b’. In ’01, chemdog and his girlfriend attempted to germ 3 more seeds, labeled ‘c’, ‘d’, and ‘e’. the ‘e’ seed never germinated, ‘c’ turned out to be junk (according to chemdog), and chemdawg ‘d’ was the keeper. In ’06, ‘chemdog’ and ‘joebrand’ reunited and joe was given 4 of the last 6 beans: Chemdawg phenos 1-4, ‘4’ being the chosen keeper. Joe thought the ‘4’ was the best representation of the original and thus dubbed it the ‘reunion pheno’. Chemdog still has two seeds left in his stash.
“The first Chem Dog strain was grown in Montana and sold in Colorado for years before being purchased by Chemdawg, whom was in Massachusetts. While in Colorado, where a primarily indica “Chem” line had been produced steadily for years, confirming that Chem Dog (and related siblings) are indeed of predominantly indica genetics. Chemdawg was now a proud owner of 13 original seeds and in 1991 Chemdawg sowed his first 4 seeds. One turned out male, but the other three were females that became “Chem 91” or “ChemDog ’91”, “Chem A” (Chem 91 sister), and “Chem B” phenos. In 2000, Chemdawg sowed 3 more seeds labeled “C”, “D” and “E”. The “C” seed did not turn out well, the “E” seed never germinated and the “D” seed was the winner. In 2006 Chemdawg brought back 4 original Chem Dog seeds to Joebrand in Colorado to be grown out. Those seeds accounted for four more Chem Dog phenotypes, but only the 4th was labeled worthy to its genetics and named “Reunion Pheno”. Chemdawg still has two more original seeds in his possesion from the early 1990’s. Although some say Chemdawg gave everyone cuttings, never gave seeds away and he still has 6 seeds left.
History of the Chemdawg Family
Chemdawg Crosses:
• ‘OG Kush‘ (the original cut) came from an s1 seed from a bag of ’91 Chemdawg in the Lake Tahoe area in 1996.
• ‘Sour Diesel‘ aka ECSD came from an accidental cross of (’91 Chemdawg x Mass Super Skunk/NL)x DNL after the DNL hermed and seeded the room. The DNL’s lineage is NL/Shiva x Hawaiian.
Original Diesel‘ (also known as Diesel #1, Headband, Daywrecker Diesel, Underdawg) came from a cross of ’91 Chemdawg x (Mass Super Skunk x Sensi’s Northern Lights) done by a guy known as ‘weasel’.

Sour Diesel develops spectacular calyxes

Soon, the famous Sour Diesel – also called East Coast Sour Diesel, or simply ECSD – was created by accident when a whole crop of ’91 Chemdog was pollinated by DNL (Northern Lights x RFK Skunk/Hawaiian) or by Massachusetts Super Skunk (JJ-NYC).
Chemdog and his friends – most of them were underground breeders – developed several hybrids from the Chemdog marijuana. These ones became especially popular: –

10 years later, in 2001, Chemdog and his girlfriend tried to germinate 3 more seeds, labeled as “c”, “d” and “e”. The “e” never sprouted, the “c” turned out to be mediocre, while the “d” has been preserved until today, known as Chemdog D or Chem D.

Today, we can find a large number of hybrids developed from Diesel and OG Kush genetics, which gives us a hint about the quality of these strains, characterized by a very intense cerebral effect and an unmistakable blend of diesel, earthy, piney and citric notes.
Chemdog from Green House Seeds

Therefore, to clarify the origins of Diesel we need to know more about the mythical Chemdog strain – often called Chemdawg – and how it reached the East Coast of the United States.

The Diesel genetics represented a very important contribution to the cannabis world. The spectacular organoleptic traits of most of its specimens, as

Not to be taken literally, found this awhile ago.

History of the Chemdawg Family

At a Grateful Dead show at Deer Creek Amphitheatre, ‘joebrand’ (aka ‘wonkanobe’) and ‘pbud’ met ‘chemdog’ and sold him an ounce of very high quality pot for $500. joe and chemdog exchanged numbers and they later arranged for two ounces to be shipped to chemdog on the east coast. According to chemdog, one ounce was seedless and the other had 13 seeds.

In ’91, chemdog popped the first 4 seeds. From these seeds, one male was found and disposed of (chemdog was young, you can’t blame him). The 3 females were labeled ‘chemdawg’ (now ’91 chemdawg), ‘chemdawg a’ (now chemdawg’s sister), and ‘chemdawg b’. In ’01, chemdog and his girlfriend attempted to germ 3 more seeds, labeled ‘c’, ‘d’, and ‘e’. the ‘e’ seed never germinated, ‘c’ turned out to be junk (according to chemdog), and chemdawg ‘d’ was the keeper. In ’06, ‘chemdog’ and ‘joebrand’ reunited and joe was given 4 of the last 6 beans: Chemdawg phenos 1-4, ‘4’ being the chosen keeper. Joe thought the ‘4’ was the best representation of the original and thus dubbed it the ‘reunion pheno’. Chemdog still has two seeds left in his stash.

• ‘chemdog’ and friends made several crosses that are held closely by a small group of friends and acquaintances. Among them are:

1. Super Snowdawg (Bubble Chem x [Super skunk x Oregon Sno])
2. Giesel (Chem D x Mass Super Skunk)
3. Bubble Chem (Chemdawg’s Sister x Sag’s Bubbleberry)
4. Dawg Daze aka ChemHaze (Chem D x ’93 Sensi’s NL#5/Haze)
5. Chemdawg D x Pbud (another old-school Colorado strain)

JJ-NYC has been working on a Chemdawg D-based seed line for several years now. He started by crossing Chemdawg D to Sensi’s Afghani after thoroughly testing both Sensi’s Afghani and Sensi’s Hindu Kush to determine which was more stable and would be better for the initial cross. JJ then did a backcross, known as “Double Dawg.” Several phenos of this circulate and several people still have beans. JJ’s latest work to the line is a second backcross known as “Tres Dawg” which is just starting to get tested.

Rezdog of Reservoir Seeds recently released several Chemdawg crosses as part of his ‘Trinity’ charity auctions. The crosses included Chemdawg D x Sensi’s Hindu Kush and Snowdawg x Sensi’s Hindu Kush, Chemdawg D x Sour Diesel IBL, Snowdawg x Sour Diesel IBL, ChemHaze x Sour Diesel IBL and Giesel x Sour Diesel IBL.
