As a sativa-dominant hybrid (60% sativa/40% indica), the Kali Dog strain gives a nice balanced effect that is heavy-hitting like in most indicas as well as uplifting and relaxing due to the sativa genetics. It is the result of the crossbreeding of OG Kush and Sour Diesel by Royal Queen Seeds. The THC content is about 17-21%, the high hits almost immediately. It can make you either giggly and talkative or highly motivated and eager to work. However, after a while, the uplifting state can transform into a mild couch-locking feeling with a tendency toward munchies.
The Kali Dog effects make it a perfect option for treating appetite loss, mild cases of fatigue, depression, anxiety, chronicstress, and pain.
The strain has a sour lemon flavor with a diesel aftertaste and a skunky aroma. The buds are medium-sized, very fluffy, with curly amber hairs, sometimes with purple undertones. The most distinctive feature of Kali Dog's nugs is a thick layer of white crystal trichomes.
The plants are short (90-130 cm/35-50 inches) and compact, and the yields are generous―you can expect to get up to 600 grams/m2 when growing indoors. This plant needs a bit more nutrients than an average strain, so if you provide it with extra fertilizers, the reward will make you more than happy.
Kali Dog is usually not recommended to beginner growers as it requires a bit more attention than usual. You need to provide it with a lower humidity level, as it is amenable to mold, bud rot, and powdery mildew. The reason for this is Kali Dog's large dense buds that can be so heavy that it becomes difficult to protect them from all the possible problems. For the same reason, it is better to use SCRoG, so that the screen can help the plant hold the buds and not break the branches.
The flowering period lasts around 9-10 weeks, and if you grow Kali Dog outside, it will usually be ready for harvesting by late October.
