After you attain a specific level of normal cannabis consumption, your tolerance does not generally let your physique to react to strains as sensitively as much less frequent customers may possibly. So a hit of Super Lemon Haze will not make my thoughts race like it as soon as did, nor does a modest bowl of Banana Kush knock me out with the similar efficiency. I can nevertheless expertise the intended effects from unique strains, even though I generally have to consume much more.
But any tiny bite of Chemdog will shoot up my spine and zap my brain no matter how significant my tolerance and ego get. What ever it is about Chemdog and the household of chemical-smelling, brain-dicking strains that it has developed more than the years, my thoughts confident can not deal with them.
Such an unproductive bliss is not as welcome as it as soon as was now that I have much more significant-boy responsibilities, but it is surely entertaining for a evening or a solo Saturday morning complete of cartoons. So when I came across Chem De La Chem, I ready myself for a session with the head of the class — the Chem of the crop, if you will — and the strain’s forest-inspired funk, gasoline influence and halfwit higher didn’t disappoint. Sessions with Chem De La Chem regularly developed a brief-lived power with a lengthy-lasting euphoria, leaving me incapable of providing a shit about answering emails and texts or taking the trash to the curb. Such a getaway from life can be detrimental if taken all the time, but each and every as soon as in a although, it enables useful self-aid retreats at household more than the weekend.
Chem De La Chem hasn’t risen to the best of Denver’s pot hierarchy however, but a lineage of Chemdog, a northeastern classic, and I-95, a strain named immediately after the East Coast’s primary interstate highway, points to roots at the far finish of the nation. We’ve noticed the strain about town at the Providing Tree of Denver, Excellent Chemistry, Type Enjoy, Lightshade and Seed & Smith, with wholesale flower additional distributed by Willie’s Reserve, and concentrate created by Green Dot Labs. My favorites so far have come from Type Enjoy and Green Dot, each of which may possibly as properly have had gas fumes increasing from their bottles.
Appears: Chem De La Chem usually grows chunky, oblong-shaped buds created up of spiky, dense calyxes. These buds variety from vibrant green to wintergreen, with above-typical trichome coverage.
Smell: Like twisting a lime more than an old carpet in a forest cabin and shoving your nose in it. Chem De La Chem is a excellent balance of Chemdog and OG qualities, with dank, earthy whiffs of sandalwood and pine leaves layered with funky, sour notes of rubber and gas.
Flavor: Anticipate a much more piney, floral taste than the standard gasoline flavor of Chemdog, but the classic chemical taste undoubtedly tends to make an look. These earthy, fuel-like flavors are covered in subtle, spicy notes of wood.
Effects: The potent, disorienting head higher also leaks into the physique, calming anxious limbs and, in my case, relaxing the stomach to the point of insatiability. I do not advise any crucial social interactions or complicated chores immediately after a session, but Chem De La Chem is a prime candidate for any person in search of relaxation or strain relief.
Dwelling grower’s take: “That Triangle Kush influence in I-95 is most likely behind that musty OG scent, but Chem De La Chem smells like straight fuel in the develop. Took about eight or nine weeks to reduce down as soon as it began blooming, I assume, but I did have to develop this one particular from seed. Not confident if it is obtainable in clones out there, but it is worth a attempt if you locate it. These Chem-y flavors and the content head higher are worth the time I do not care what the yield is.”
