The Starberry X Alpha Dawg strain is a hybrid with generations of the Chemdawg strain in its lineage. It was bred by Kushman Genetics and was recently made available as a “test strain” at Buds and Roses Collective in Studio City, CA.
Starberry X Alpha Dawg Strain Has Obvious Chemdawg Influence
Kushman Genetics recently announced a limited release of three new “test strains” that could be the upstart seed company’s first official releases. The strains have not yet been named, but they were created using a few staples of the Buds and Roses Vegamatrix line.
In learning about the new Kushman Genetics varieties, I have to say that I was most excited to sample one of their Sour Diesel hybrids – Sour Diesel X Adonai Kush and Sour Diesel X Cherry Lopez. Of course, the Cherry Lopez strain has a great deal of Adonai Kush in it’s genetics in its own right. It would be interesting to note the presumably subtle differences between the two strains.
With that said, I obviously wasn’t the only patient interested in being a Kushman Genetics guinea pig. Both the Sour Diesel hybrids were out of stock when I finally made my way to Buds and Roses, and there was a lonely gram of the Starberry X Alpha Dawg hybrid remaining.
The Starberry strain was the result of crossing Stardawg (an inbred line of the Chemdawg strain) and Kyle Kushman’s Strawberry Cough. Alpha Dawg has a great deal of Chemdawg influence as well. With that in mind, I expected that I was in store for a cerebral head high with a slight mind warp.
How Will The Starberry X Alpha Dawg Cannabis Strain Affect Me?
The first thing I noticed about the Starberry X Alpha Dawg strain was its subtle terpene profile. The aroma did not seem to rush out and demand my attention like a lot of strains with heavy Chemdawg influence. Instead, it carried a slightly sweet aroma that more than complimented the gassy, almost diesel-like scent found within.
“The Starberry X Alpha Dawg strain caused any and all stress to wash away within minutes. My head was affected most and I experienced little-to-no body fatigue.”
Taste, however, is a different story entirely. The Chemdawg strain’s classic taste (think OG Kush with less citrus) was in full effect. I’ve always been fond of the Chemdawg flavor and I definitely wouldn’t complain about the slight sweetness that the Starberry strain brought to the table either.
Smoking the Starberry X Alpha Dawg strain caused any and all stress to wash away within minutes. My head was affected most and I experienced little-to-no body fatigue. With that said, vaporizing cannabis and other alternative delivery methods has been found to have even more health benefits.
