Though the name might leave you with some questions, Do-Si-Dos is an outstanding relatively new strain on the block. Coming from the Cookies family (GSC x Face Off OG), it also has a good amount of Kush genetics that gives it its strength, but it is nicely rounded out with the typical GSC traits in terms of flavor and aroma. Its Indica dominance provides a medical-grade body high but is nicely balanced out with mental alertness and clarity. With a fast flowering time and exquisite flavors, this has the potential to be your next favorite photoperiod strain.
The THC content (25%+) on Do Si Dos is a good indicator of its Indica heritage, meaning you will have a calming, relaxing body high, though it also comes with an almost immediate energizing and uplifting cerebral buzz. Some users have also noted increased creativity and introspection, which can make it a good choice for artistic types. Those suffering from conditions such as inflammation and chronic pain will find relief while people with anxiety and depression will also highly appreciate this much sought-after variety.
This all-star strain can be ready for harvest in just 8-10 weeks of flowering thanks to its Indica-dominant genetics. Its Sativa lineage makes it particularly well-suited for warmer tropical as well as temperate conditions. During veg it grows quite vigorously and its bushy stature means it can undergo some pruning and defoliating, from which it can recover nicely. It has good resistance to mold and can also withstand other higher-stress techniques such as main-lining, manifolding and FIM-ing, which can really boost yields if done correctly. Plants will usually max out at 120cm with limited stretching towards the end of the life cycle. One thing to keep in mind is the presence of males as these are regular unfeminized seeds, so make sure to remove any to get those sinsemilla buds. The upside to regular seeds is they are a fantastic springboard for breeding new and exciting strains.
Once flowers have formed, growers will appreciate the beauty of this beast. Leaves tend to be a vivid lime green with compact, dense nugs that are sprinkled with bright yellow pistils, turning to a pronounced brownish-amber especially just before harvest. You’ll notice a pungent aroma in flowering that has delicate notes of citrus fruit before taking on a more floral character with earthy, woody undertones toward harvest. Hints of vanilla have also been noted, which is likely attributable to its OGKB lineage.
The overall experience of Do Si Dos is that of an easy-to-grow, very delectable yet highly therapeutic strain. It looks and tastes like dessert, yet has a calming, relaxing effect that won’t glue you to your couch. This highly rewarding strain is a great addition to any garden.
Do-Si-Dos gives off a sweet funkiness laced with pepper upon the inhale and the earthy and citrusy terpenes come through right after, providing an immediate uplifting experience. The Cookies genetics, with its sweet yet earthy undertones, are clearly noticeable on the exhale. When vaped the smooth butteriness is even more pronounced.
