Qwad Dawg is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred by Alphakronik Genes. The strain is a mix of Snowdawg 2 bred back on itself. Snowdawg 2 is a balanced hybrid known for its cool high and resin-dense buds.

Snowdawg 2 is actually one strain in a line of selectively bred buds. Snowdawg 2 itself is a cross of parent Snowdawg and a Snowdawg backcross, meaning that the final result has been through multiple rounds of perfection.

This strain may be a bit difficult to find, but Qwad Dawg is a fair selection for moderate and experienced cannabis consumers. This strain features an estimated 18% THC on average, though some samples have tested as high as 21.7%. In high doses, this strain’s hybrid heritage may give it a slight psychedelic vibe.

Alphakronik bred Qwad Dawg to enhance the flavor from the original Snowdawg mother, and they definitely succeeded. Qwad Dawg has inherited all of the perks of Snowdawg with an extra sweet taste.

The aroma of this strain has been described as cotton candy-like or something akin to a ripe, drying fruit. Some slight diesel tones add a little acidity to this strain.

The Qwad Dawg experience

Qwad Dawg is thought to be a 60/40 sativa-dominant hybrid. This means that while this strain does provide some quality mental uplift, there is a decent amount of sedation in this bud as well. In fact, like other members of the Snowdawg family, you can count on Qwad Dawg to provide a very relaxing body high.

Thanks to the high THC, the sedative effects of this strain will become more pronounced in higher doses. In low to moderate doses, this strain provides an upbeat and happy attitude with a lovely physical buzz.

This strain is not the best wake ‘n bake flower, but it is a great afternoon choice. In large doses, a more pronounced mind-altering experience that borders on couch-locked and introverted.

The effects of Qwad Dawg may be a bit on the creeping side. Expect to wait up to 15 minutes before the effects of this strain present themselves. Many consumers notice a gentle and pleasant pressure in the face and eyes, though the overall mental experience is fairly clear-headed.

Having some snacks handy for about mid-way through the high would be a real live saver with this powerful and contented bud.

This strain would be a great choice for cultivators interested in ice water extraction. The Snowdawg line is popular among many hashishins and extractors. Well-known for heavy, trichome-laden yields, Qwad Dawg is a strain for all of the kief fans.

Both recreational and medical consumers will want to use a three chamber herb grinder with this strain. After all, who would want all of those crystals to go to waste?

Qwad Dawg is often recommended to patients with chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis. While this strain is sativa-dominant, plenty of indica heritage lends some body-numbing effects to this strain.

Qwad Dawg is also thought to aid in relief from various mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress.
