Purple Chemdawg, also known as Purple Chem, is a cultivar bred initially by the team at Cali Connection in Southern California. The breeders crossed Chem 91, a reinforced cross of the original Chemdawg, with a double-back-crossed Pre-98 Bubba male to tease out the best features of the two classic strains. Cali Connection’s efforts paid off, as Purple Chemdawg has won multiple awards including first place for best indica at the 2016 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup and second place in the same category at the 2016 Michigan Cannabis Cup. At full maturity, Purple Chemdawg blooms into a dense plant with purple-colored buds that have a distinct chemical odor and fluffy texture. Growers seeking to accentuate the purple hues are advised to expose Purple Chemdawg to colder environments, nearly 10 degrees lower than ambient temperatures. Purple Chemdawg flowers in seven to nine weeks when grown indoors and October in outdoor gardens in the Northern Hemisphere.
