Legend has it that both OG Kush and Diesel strains come from a line of Chemdawg, which makes it the ancestor of quite a few elite strains of marijuana. In fact, a lot of legends surround the strain: According to one (now debunked) story, it used to be known as 'the chem' because it was one of the first hydroponic strains pumped full of chemicals, and then someone took the strain and planted it in soil and grew it organically, renaming it Chemdawg. Another (probably true) legend holds that the origin of Chemdawg was a Grateful Dead show in Indiana, where two breeders (one of whom went by 'Chemdog') met and began a relationship and pot exchange that eventually led to the strain. It's skunky, with earthy and citrusy flavors, as well as a fuel-like musk reminiscent of Diesel.
