When you attain a sure stage of normal cannabis consumption, your tolerance doesn’t at all times permit your physique to react to strains as sensitively as much less frequent customers may. So successful of Tremendous Lemon Haze received’t make my thoughts race prefer it as soon as did, nor does a small bowl of Banana Kush knock me out with the identical effectivity. I can nonetheless expertise the meant results from specific strains, although I normally need to devour extra.

However any little chunk of Chemdog will shoot up my backbone and zap my mind irrespective of how large my tolerance and ego get. No matter it’s about Chemdog and the household of chemical-smelling, brain-dicking strains that it has produced through the years, my thoughts positive can’t deal with them.

Such an unproductive bliss isn’t as welcome because it as soon as was now that I’ve extra big-boy duties, however it’s actually enjoyable for an evening or a solo Saturday morning filled with cartoons. So after I got here throughout Chem De La Chem, I ready myself for a session with the top of the category — the Chem of the crop, if you’ll — and the pressure’s forest-inspired funk, gasoline affect and halfwit excessive didn’t disappoint. Periods with Chem De La Chem persistently produced a short-lived vitality with a long-lasting euphoria, leaving me incapable of giving a shit about answering emails and texts or taking the trash to the curb. Such a trip from life could be detrimental if taken on a regular basis, however each every now and then, it permits useful self-help retreats at residence over the weekend.

Chem De La Chem hasn’t risen to the highest of Denver’s pot hierarchy but, however a lineage of Chemdog, a northeastern basic, and I-95, a pressure named after the East Coast’s predominant interstate freeway, factors to roots on the far finish of the nation. We’ve seen the pressure round city on the Giving Tree of Denver, Good Chemistry, Form Love, Lightshade and Seed & Smith, with wholesale flower additional distributed by Willie’s Reserve, and focus made by Inexperienced Dot Labs. My favorites up to now have come from Form Love and Inexperienced Dot, each of which could as nicely have had gasoline fumes rising from their bottles.

Seems: Chem De La Chem usually grows chunky, oblong-shaped buds made up of spiky, dense calyxes. These buds vary from brilliant inexperienced to wintergreen, with above-average trichome protection.

Odor: Like twisting a lime over an previous carpet in a forest cabin and shoving your nostril in it. Chem De La Chem is a superb stability of Chemdog and OG qualities, with dank, earthy whiffs of sandalwood and pine leaves layered with funky, bitter notes of rubber and gasoline.

Taste: Count on a extra piney, floral style than the standard gasoline taste of Chemdog, however the basic chemical style undoubtedly makes an look. These earthy, fuel-like flavors are coated in refined, spicy notes of wooden.

Results: The highly effective, disorienting head excessive additionally leaks into the physique, calming anxious limbs and, in my case, enjoyable the abdomen to the purpose of insatiability. I don’t suggest any vital social interactions or advanced chores after a session, however Chem De La Chem is a chief candidate for anybody in search of leisure or stress aid.

Residence grower’s take: “That Triangle Kush affect in I-95 is probably going behind that musty OG scent, however Chem De La Chem smells like straight gasoline within the develop. Took about eight or 9 weeks to chop down as soon as it began blooming, I believe, however I did need to develop this one from seed. Unsure if it’s out there in clones on the market, however it’s price a strive in the event you discover it. These Chem-y flavors and the comfortable head excessive are definitely worth the time; I don’t care what the yield is.”
