This week on ISMOKE we are taking a look at a strain which has quickly risen to become one of my favourites after I first sampled it a couple of weeks ago.
OG #18 is a powerful Indica cross of Chemdawg and OG Chem. This strain comes from Reserva Privada. The plant apparently gives the yield of Chemdawg with the power of OG Chem, all the while with a more sour/fruity taste than traditional OG Kush.
This particular phenotype was grown by Kush Family Collective, who traded their 2015 Dopefiend Cup Winner Blues and their Grapefruit strain for cuttings of OG #18 and Casey Jones.
Thanks for joining me for another Wake and Bake session! This week I’m taking a look at two cannabis strains – Blue Dream and Chemdawg, plus a couple of important ISMOKE updates.
I hadn’t smoked this batch of Blue Dream yet as I had been waiting for it to cure. Blue Dream was one of our favourite cannabis strains last year after we reviewed it on ISMOKE, so I was excited to open up this sample early for the video.
The Chemdawg featured is the same batch as I reviewed last week. I’ve been smoking this strain for a little while and haven’t lost interest in this old school classic yet! Make sure you check out our review if you haven’t already.

We are also heading to Spannabis for the weekend, so the videos may be disrupted from Friday, but we’ll be back with some Spannabis-themed content for your enjoyment the following week.
While doing some follow-up research after filming our Chemdawg review this week, we learned some really interesting history which gives rise to over 80% of cannabis strains on the market today. Because of this we wanted to present a cannabis history of Chem Dog and Sour Diesel.
To answer what is probably your first question – yes – it was originally spelt ‘D.O.G’ before being changed to the familiar ‘DAWG’ spelling we know today.
Chemdawg is a cannabis strain that is so classic that it gave rise to other classics such as OG Kush and Sour Diesel. Today on ISMOKE we are taking a look at this strain in a bit more detail in our exclusive Chemdawg strain review.
Last week we travelled to a secret location to meet UK Cannabis Extractor TG Botanical Extracts.
The UK cannabis extracts scene is growing nicely now, after hitting the US a number of years ago. Thanks to the world wide web, it’s easy enough for people to get hold of the equipment they’ll need to consume extracts, as well as the knowledge to do so.
Today on ISMOKE we are taking a look at some Silver Lemon Shatter, a form of cannabis concentrate extracted using BHO as a solvent. This particular batch was extracted and purged in a closed loop system for 150 hours, and we got to see the result freshly baked.
Last week we went to meet UK-based extractor TG Botanical Extracts, which we will be covering more in a separate feature soon on ISMOKE Magazine.
Green Crack is a Sativa-dominant Hybrid. Yet what a rotten name.
I think I get the idea of this imagery, but it isn’t the one I like to hear for a healing plant. “This herb is like crack” is that the right image we need? Why would you want to liken cannabis to crack anyway?
Lower House approves controlled cannabis cultivation
• Dutch MPs voted to approve controlled cannabis cultivation
• A slim majority in the lower house of the Dutch parliament agreed on Tuesday to pass the D66 proposal, which would regulate the cultivation of cannabis
• The sale of cannabis in the Netherlands is not technically legal, but it is tolerated, contrary to popular belief
Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) MP Narend Singh hails “major breakthrough”
According to an IOL report, South Africa has joined the ranks of 27 US States by legalising cannabis for medicinal purposes, as the Medical Control Council (MCC) announced that it will publish guidelines for medical cannabis production.
IFP MP Narend Singh said a letter sent to him by the MCCl’s working group on cannabis, indicated that it would publish its proposed guidelines on cannabis production for medicinal use following its presentation to the council last week.
