Stardawg Weed Strain Review | Purple Dogbud Strain

stardawg marijuana strain

Stardawg strain was likely named after the beautiful crystal trichomes that cover the plant. A hybrid between Chemdawg 4 and Tres Dawg, this combination will leave you with an uplifting experience. You'll also get a sense of euphoria alongside a sour note of diesel taste. Top Dawg Seeds bred this deliciously effective strain and named it Stardawg, which is derived from its parents, Chem/tresdawg. You may also come across this strain with the name "Star Dawg" - we're not here to tell you where to throw in a space or not, just know that whether there's a space or not, you're in for a real treat!

Stardawg, AKA dawgstar strain

Hailing from California, you may also find this Sativa-dominant strain by the name of dawgstar. It is thought to have come out of the Bay Area, and this association gives this strain an air of sophistication and potent effects.

Stardawg weed

Smell Stardawg's buds and you will be greeted with the diesel-like aroma that is associated with its parent strains. This strain smells particularly pungent but is definitely worth holding your nose for to get the amazing euphoric effects. The smell and the high may be too much for first-timers, so be careful with your first dose.

Stardawg genetics

  • Tres dawg
  • Chemdawg 4

Sometimes referred to as Tres Stardawg weed strain, both of its parents are Indica dominant. However, Chemdawg 4 is the only Chemdawg phenotype to be Sativa-dominant, and Stardawg breaks through to the next galaxy when it comes to its overwhelming Sativa-dominance.

Stardawg THC percentage

Stardawg weed strain can have a whopping 22% THC. This is massive for newcomers, but as long as you dose correctly you should be fine. Some phenotypes will be weaker than this 22%, but the average Sativa is 14%. The lowest THC value of Stardog is around 16%. This strain could be a great choice for those who have treatment-resistant illnesses, or who simply want to experience cerebral euphoria and body relaxation simultaneously.

Stardawg price

Stardawg is about £30 for an eighth. This is entirely dependent on where you’re living, but this is about right for mid-shelf flower. The dispensaries in California and the Coffeeshops in Amsterdam all have massively varying prices, but you'll probably find the best price for this strain in the US.

Stardawg taste

  • Diesel
  • Earthy
  • Pine
  • Wood
  • Sweet
  • Citrus

Stardawg contains two of the most sought-after flavors in the cannabis community, citrus and diesel. Its taste is another reason why Stardawg is such a good choice for edibles and oils as well.

To get the full experience from this strain, you should use a flower vape. These have many advantages, including being able to reuse your weed to easily create edibles.


Stardawg oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.

You can create edibles very easily using Already Vaped Bud. You can take your bud that you’ve vaped from your flower vape and blend or hand mix into an oil or fat. Cook or use as is, and you’ve got yourself an edible high.

As for oils, wax, shatter and concentrates, it’s much more difficult to make with Stardawg strain. It does make a good concentrate flavor though because of its diesel and citrus tastes. The video below is a review of a Loudpack extracts Stardawg strain.

The Great Dane is a great home for Stardawg. The showerhead percolator will have your toking smooth, tasty puffs of vapour, and the borosilicate glass construction should allow you to smoke in peace, as it's super sturdy. We also love the look of the bong with its slender tube and bent neck quartz banger.

Purple Dogbud strain & Gorilla Dawg

Both of these strains are also very famous Chemdawg crosses. Gorilla Dawg is Chemdawg 3 X Gorilla Glue, creating a beautifully balanced, orange-haired covered bud. Purple Dogbud strain is instead crossed with Purple Urkle, much for the same reasons this strain was created. The taste of Purple Dogbud strain is truly amazing, as the grape from Purple Urkle accentuates the lemon and diesel of Chemdawg.

Stardawg’s effects are important because it’s a well-balanced hybrid, which has a high potency. These kinds of strains, particularly Sativa-dominant ones such as Stardawg strain, are perfect for curbing depression. The ability to soothe the mind and relax the body, as well as making you feel happy and focus, can be a great remedy to feeling crappy. Stress and fatigue will melt away provided you can fight past the occasional feelings of couch lock, which are brought on by Stardawg’s two indica-dominant parents.

Stardawg Flowering Time

Stardawg will flower within 8 weeks, which is a reasonably quick flower time.

Stardawg Growing tips 

As it’s a Californian strain, it could be hard to grow elsewhere. You would need good sunshine in order to grow this strain outdoors. However you can grow this strain pretty easily indoors. Ensure good cuttings, trimmings, and humidity controls.


Stardawg seeds 

As per usual with the Californian strains it’s a real gamble. The only official way to get this strain for sure would be to get a clipping. The seeds available online could be real, but they could also be pale imitations of the glorious original.

Stardawg yield 

Stardawg has a high yield as long as you follow some simple steps such as clipping and trimming. You can usually find growing videos if you want to learn how to clip and trim for bigger buds, and higher yields.


cannabis flower vape

If you've successfully grown a crop of Stardawg (or any other strain, or even if you just have the flower already! Good on you!), we suggest you send your precious flower off into smoke in style.

Variable temperature settings and quality materials ensure a clean and flavorful hit from Linx Vapor's Gaia flower vaporizer every time. There's a reason it's High Times' "Best Portable Vaporizer".

The folks @linxvapor are doing these beautiful vapes justice on their insta feed.
