Dosido Strain Review - Everything you need to know and more!
Dosido or Do-Si-Dos is an Indica-dominant hybrid, which shares a lot of its best qualities with the world-renowned Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) strain. You will recognize the bud structure, the trichomes, and the hairs that cover GSC when you look at its child, Dosidos. The flavor is probably the most important part of this strain, which it definitely inherited from GSC. This makes it a perfect strain to get your trusty flower vaporizer out for. Enjoy both Indica and Sativa effects as you relax and feel euphoric at the same time.
This strain is also sometimes called Dosey Do, Girl Scout Cookies Do Si Dos, Cookie Face strain, Peanut Butter strain, or Raspberry Cookies strain.
To truly enjoy Dosido\'s flavor, it\'s well worth investing in a quality dry herb vaporizer.
We're big fans of the Khan vape from Mig Vapor. Constructed from aerospace aluminum, it's got a massive pack size chamber and an isolated air path. This means you can load in your herb and enjoy smooth tokes at the heat you decide you enjoy most!

Dosido: indica or sativa?
Dosido is one of those magical strains that sits in the very middle between Sativa and Indica. These are amongst the most sought after cannabis seeds in the world for a variety of reasons, which we will get into a bit later. The main thing you need to know for now is that these strains are popular for both medicinal uses and for recreational use. As such, Dosido is a popular, well-balanced Indica strain. The strain itself is very potent, and you can see this on the trichomes that cover the strain as well as from the smell of it. The popcorn-shaped plant buds, which are a bright, lime green colour, look ripe for grinding. To fully appreciate this strain you should definitely grind it first, which will allow for all of the goodness to take full form.
The Mendocino Mulcher grinder made it onto our list of favourite grinders, so we're definitely recommending it again here!
It's a real beast with twice as many teeth as the typical grinder. All details have been thought of, down to the beveled edges for you to easily access all of your flower without needing to rely on a scraper. With a lifetime warranty, one purchase of these and you are good to go!

It’s hard to say which seed bank or breeding company originally came up with the idea of Dosido. Thankfully, however, Dosido's parent strain is well-documented:
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Face-Off OG strain
GSC is an exceptional strain known around the world. The face-Off strain is known for being a strong OG Kush Phenotype. Thus, a lot of people call Dosido something like Dosido OG. Some breeders have even gone as far as to remake Dosido but with one of the even more popular GSC phenotypes, such as Thin Mint Cookies or Platinum Cookies.
Dosido THC Levels
This is where this strain really excels. If you know anything about weed, you will know that OG Kush is often used for its exceptionally high THC percentage. This is why many breeders use it and/or its THC-heavy relatives to create a dankenstein. Dosido is no different. The average balanced hybrid has around 13% THC, whereas the average Dosido strain has a whopping 24% THC levels. The stronger phenotypes can sometimes test at 30%, which is amongst the highest THC percentages available in buds. Now that you know this, please exercise caution if you’re a relatively new stoner. This strain can truly knock your socks off.
Although the seeds are available online, this strain is still considered to be an exceptional strain. As such, the price is reasonably high, although not ridiculous. In a dispensary in North America, you’re looking at spending $15 for a gram of Dosido. In Amsterdam, the strain is a bit harder to find, and you’ll probably have to pay about $20 a gram.
With parent strains that include OG Kush and GSC, from this information alone you know that we have a tasty strain on our hands. Definitely one for the flower vaporizer, Dosido’s taste profile is:
GSC has some landrace genetics inside it (Durban Poison) and Faceoff OG is an OG Kush phenotype. These flavors, when brought together, make for a great tasting strain that shouldn't be underestimated.
Bongs are always evolving, so as tokers venture into new shapes it's great to have a glass company you can rely on for something innovative that still offers a super smooth hit.
Maverick Glass's Beacon checks all the boxes! It's conical shape is unique, fun and sturdy, and, with the use of a puck diffuser, you'll get a smooth toke every time!
Our thanks to the photog at Mav Glass for this image of the Beacon collection.
If you prefer to take your smoking on the go, you'll need a quality vape in order to enjoy everything a strain like Dosido has to offer.
The Dryonic II pen from O2 Vapes lets you set the precise temperature you want, has a long-lasting battery, and a pure quartz kiln keeps the flavor of your bud pure.

Dosido oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
Stickevape has Dosido as one of its options, but, obviously, this is a company that is only available in North America. Dosido is popular amongst concentrate makers because it’s a boutique strain with a great taste and the THC percentage is very high. These are both qualities that all concentrate makers look for in strains. You could also attempt to make the concentrates yourself, however, making Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is considered very dangerous, so please exercise extreme caution.
You can also make any strain you like into an edible. There are two ways to do this. First is to use your Already Vaped Bud (AVB) from your vaporizer and mixing it with either a fat or oil. This is definitely the easiest way, and (although it may seem strange) the AVB is actually still incredibly potent marijuana. This can knock your socks off, so definitely be careful. The other method is to first cook your weed. This is called decarboxylation, and fully activates the potency of your edibles.

Dosido is a classic example of a 50/50 hybrid. As such, it’s considered to be one of the best strains for curbing depression. If you can imagine getting a warming body buzz from an indica whilst also feeling the absolute euphoria of a sativa, then you can begin to understand why Dosido is a depression curber. Furthermore, this strain will melt stress and maybe even chronic pain. However, it could leave you feeling a little overwhelmed. If this is the case, then you can follow these tips to stop you from feeling so high:
- Take a cold shower
- Drink a hot coffee
- Take a few moments to lie down and breathe
Dosido flowering time
Dosido takes about 8-9 weeks for its forest green leaves to unfurl into beautiful flowers.
Dosido flowering marijuana tips
This strain grows a lot like GSC but is slightly taller. It’s a fairly difficult strain to grow and can be grown much more easily inside than outside. This is even more true if you live in an environment where there is a wide range between daytime temperatures and nighttime temperatures.
As you can see in the pictures below that this strain also reacts very well to the Screen of Green or Sea of Green growing techniques. You may also need carbon air filters or exhaust fans for some effective odor control measures. Dosido is delicious and worth the effort, but it has an exceptionally pungent smell that growers should be aware of!
If you've managed to get your hands on Dosido in concentrates form, but are looking for a vaporizer to do it justice, might we recommend the Herb-e Seven concentrates vape from Mig Vapor?
It's super portable and discreet, offers three different heat settings, and is super easy to care for. What more could you want?

Dosido seeds are available from a number of online sellers. Some are reputable, some are not. It’s very hard to decipher which are legitimate. It’s really up to you to find out. The best method of doing this is to buy a few different seeds and find out which are truly Dosido for yourself.
The yield of this strain is average.
A healthy grow for this round of Dosido! @irie_green
What is the Dosido strain?
An exceptional dankenstein strain, Dosido was bred for both potency and flavor. By crossing two OG Kush relatives, the potency truly shines through. However, by also mixing in one of the most recognizable strains when it comes to taste, the breeders of this strain managed to create a truly remarkable cut. This strain is a perfectly balanced hybrid, which should definitely be enjoyed inside a flower vape.
- 50/50 well-balanced hybrid
- Created for taste and potency
- Should be enjoyed in a flower vape
- Face Off OG X Girl Scout Cookies
- Cerebral high and indica body high
- Can help with curbing depression
Dosido is a truly lovely strain that, we think, will leave you answering "Mas Dosido? Si, dos por favor!" the next time you're asked if you want another hit!
