A-Dub Marijuana Strain Review


Strain Overview

The Scoop: Purchased at a Las Vegas dispensary during the recent Champs show, A-Dub is a forceful and compelling Indica-dominant hybrid. The genetic offspring of a Sour Diesel, Sour Bubble, Alien Dawg, and Chemdawg crossing, A-Dub enjoys a lofty reputation for its elevated potency among consumers in the Las Vegas Valley.

The Result: A-Dub creates a well-balanced cerebral effect, generating a euphoric and creative buzz that works wonders when conveying individual creativity. A Colorado variant of A-Dub was recently named as one of “Earth’s Strongest Strains.” While the Colorado version tipped the THC scale at a monstrous 28.7% for potency, Las Vegas ReLeaf’s A-Dub tested even higher.

The Verdict: A deceivingly powerful hybrid with a knockout blow, A-Dub provides temporary relief from unremitting aches and pains. Making many addictive pharmaceuticals obsolete, A-Dub provides a holistic sense of relief for those suffering from emotional dejection, muscle and joint soreness, and daily discomforts.

Strain Profile

The Science: Another high-THC strain from Las Vegas ReLeaf, A-Dub came back from the lab boasting of a 30.31% THC content. Completely deficient in the CBD cannabinoid, A-Dub’s dominant terpenes are Limonene – 3.69 mg/g, β-Myrcene – 2.96 mg/g, and β-Caryophyllene – 1.03 mg/g. Harvested on April 5, 2017, this chronic batch of A-Dub landed on the shelves at Las Vegas ReLeaf on July 18.

Appearance: As a 50-50 hybrid, A-Dub maintains the physical characteristics of both the Indica and Sativa sides of the visual spectrum. Almost invisible, her yam-hued pistols seemingly disappear into a dense forest of swollen calyx. Sparkling with incandescent trichomes, it’s no wonder these marble-sized nugs are so popular with Sin City’s consumers.

Consistency: Straddling the genetic dividing line between a sweet Sativa and a solid Indica, the density of A-Dub appears to fall firmly within the Indica spectrum. Nearly impenetrable, these dense little buds require the proper set of tools when being dissected for your smoking pleasure.

Scent: Freshly ground black pepper and an Earth-fueled aroma overwhelm the olfactory at first inhale. An irresistible fragrance, A-Dub’s subtle earthbound scent maintains a mind-melting mixture of herbal citrus and black pepper, igniting the senses in anticipation of the first soothing hit.

Taste: Rolled, lit, and inhaled deep, A-Dub’s flavor smacks of jet-fueled pepper on the initial inhale and a citrus musk on the exhale. As a BIG fan of well-rolled joints for testing today’s modern strains, I can personally attest that this strain becomes more flavorful the closer it gets to your fingers. Similar to enjoying a great filet mignon or a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, people need to understand their limits when indulging in the finer things that life has to offer.

Effect: At 30.31% THC, A-Dub is a seriously effectual strain! Halfway through my test joint, I tapped out. With my adult ADHD now sufficiently in check and medicated, the evening of relaxation began in earnest. Creatively inspired by the strain’s synergistic interplay of active compounds, I felt compelled to write this strain review.

Strain Background: The A-Dub purchased at Las Vegas ReLeaf was cultivated by Shango. As confirmed by the Budtender at the time of purchase, A-Dub is a genetic Frankenstein. A monster of a strain, A-Dub combines the heady traits of Sour Diesel x Sour Bubble x Alien Dawg x Chemdawg.

Medical Uses: Therapeutically curative, A-Dub works best when utilized as a nocturnal strain. Pronounced at soothing bouts of incapacitating depression, it’s also known for putting down stress-related headaches with just a few simple tokes.

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
