It is said in 1991 legendary breeder "Chemdawg" had attended a Grateful Dead show and met "Joebrand" and "Pbud", they sold Chemdawg an ounce for $500. Joe and Chemdawg later arranged for two more ounces to be shipped to Chemdawg on the east coast. According to Chemdawg, one ounce was seedless and the other had 13 seeds. The first Chem Dog strain was grown in Montana and sold in Colorado for years before being purchased by Chemdawg. A primarily indica "Chem" line had been produced steadily for years in Colorado, 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. In 1993 at a Phish concert Chemdawg met other growers from New York City, Chemdawg traded the Chem Dog for a Super Skunk. The NYC growers disliked the name "Chem Dog" and changed the name to Diesel. The original Chem Dog is Diesel. Albany breeders pleaded for a cutting of the Diesel, instead got a bag of seeds to grow. The Albany crew started breeding those seeds and named it "Sour Diesel". Also the original Chem Dog, aka Diesl is OG Kush. Chem Dog was later renamed "OG Kush" when it arrived in Tahoe in 1996 before it landed in California. The flavor and aroma is top notch with the classic look and smooth smoke. Chem Dog has a clear-cut look, smell, and taste. The appearance after drying is lime green with a golden tint, mixture of red hairs and a healthy coating of sugary crystals. There are also many other phenotype hybrids including Geisel, Snodog, Bubble Chem and others.
