In this episode of Seed to Strain, MERRY JANE highlights Chem Dog, the OG kind bud from the early 1990s that led to the creation of Sour Diesel and many of the other superb plants that you love to smoke.

Chem Dog, the anonymous Massachusetts developer behind the bud, shares its origin story, which involves a lack of quality cannabis in New England and a chance encounter at a Grateful Dead show. Watch the video to see how Chem Dog came to be. And as a favor to the man who blessed us with it, please be sure to spell it correctly from now on: D-O-G. Got that, dawg?

To see what Chem Dog is up to, check him out on Instagram.
