STRAIN PROFILE The Dude
The DudeBefore we jump to it, let’s get one thing cleared up. The Dude takes the crown for having possibly the coolest name of any cannabis strain in the world. Named after Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski, this strain packs a big enough punch to leave even its namesake stuck to the couch for hours.
Put simply, The Dude is an awesome dessert smoke. If you’re the type of person who, after enjoying a hearty meal, likes to skip the cake and get straight to work on skinning up a fat one, then this may very well be the strain for you. It’s a versatile Indica-leaning hybrid with a truly unique bouquet consisting of chocolate and coffee notes that make it far more enticing than any ice cream or gateaux you’ll ever have encountered. Its through-the-roof THC level makes it a great buddy to unwind with in the early evening.
The Dude’s genetic lineage can be traced back to an Oregon Afghani female clone which is said to have very similar (albeit more devastating) effects to one of the best-known strains on the market: OG Kush. This potent specimen is enormously popular among breeders because its superior genetics can be used to create incredibly stable crosses. It’s from this parent that The Dude inherits its earthy odor and strong narcotic traits.
On the other side of the family tree is another intensely flavorful and aromatic strain – the much-loved Chocolope. By putting these two strains together, the breeders created a genuinely unique hybrid that swaggers into the room with an insane amount of THC and an equally impressive pharmacological value. Get on your feet, ladies and gentlemen – The Dude is in the house!
The great news is that – aside from smelling and tasting otherworldly – The Dude also boasts a suite of sought-after effects that are sure to delight recreational and medicinal users alike. Its gloriously sticky and resin-rich buds are a hash-makers dream come true and are great for producing extracts and other concentrates. This happy-go-lucky specimen thrives indoors or outside and is surprisingly easy to grow, and it even responds well to various training methods. Under the right conditions, you’ll get an enormous yield that’ll turn your friends green with envy – and it all starts here, with these top-notch seeds from United Strains of America.
As if that wasn’t enough to have you jumping for joy, the seeds are also feminized. Unless you’re planning to breed, you probably have no use for male plants anyway, and will only end up wasting them. Male plants can lead to problems in the grow area, since they can accidentally pollinate the females, making seeded buds that are harsh and unpleasant when smoked. By selecting all-female seeds, you can make things a whole lot easier for yourself.
How to Grow The Dude
Arguably, the two best things about The Dude are its rich terpene profile and frankly insane potency. But aside from delighting consumers, it’ll also have home-growers grinning from ear to ear. For starters, it is short-to-medium in stature which makes it perfectly suited to pretty much any indoor setup including grow tents. Germinating the seeds is simple and straightforward using the paper towel method, and you can start the vegetative stage in style by using organic soil, which will make the flavor profile even more exhilarating. If you want to go for more vigorous growth and create buds that burst on their branches, hydroponics is the way to go. By feeding the roots directly, along with proper use of 600 watt HID lamps, you can significantly boost the growth rate.
Either way, you can pair your medium of choice with the Sea of Green technique. That way, you can run perpetual harvests while also shortening the vegging period by a couple of weeks. Using this method, you could get your hands on a whopping harvest of up to 1.96 ounces of buds per square foot after just 7 to 9 weeks of flowering – and you can’t say fairer than that!
One thing’s for sure – The Dude loves the great outdoors. If you want to grow this strain under the supervision of Mother Nature herself, you’ll first need to find a spot with plenty of sunshine and ample shading. The latter is especially important because you’ll need to prevent the plant from overheating, especially around midday. Harvest usually falls during the first two weeks of October, and the expected yield can be as much as 21 ounces per plant.
Flavor and Bouquet
The Dude also oozes a charismatic aroma and flavor profile characterized by a dank, earthy essence and accentuated with tantalizing notes of chocolate and coffee. There’s also a satisfyingly sweet and spicy musk that’ll have you salivating at twenty paces.
Let’s cut to the chase: it may smell and taste great, and it may be remarkably easy to grow, but when it comes to lighting up, The Dude is for veterans and seasoned smokers only. It’s an insanely potent strain whose bite is a hundred times worse than its bark.
After taking the first hit, it won’t be long before a mildly euphoric buzz starts to ebb away at your temples, brushing away mental cobwebs and lightening dark moods. Soon, the cerebral wave breaks on the body’s shore and a soothing sensation spreads across the entire anatomy. That may sound pleasant and tranquil, but things gradually get more intense, eventually crescendoing in an all-encompassing, utterly numbing stone that’ll hold you in its grip for hours.
If you’re into that sort of thing, then happy days – you may as well just sit back and enjoy it. There’s not much else you can do, really, since resistance is futile when it comes to The Dude’s potent punch.
There’s a common misconception that the best medicinal strains are high in CBD and low in THC, but this isn’t always the case – and The Dude is living proof of that fact. The plant’s unique terpene profile is said contribute to the efficacy of its medicinal properties in a phenomenon known as the ‘entourage effect’. To this end, it could be used to relieve symptoms of mental health issues such as depression, PTSD and bipolar disorder.
The Dude’s main party trick, though, is easing aches and pains courtesy of its awesome array of anti-inflammatory and analgesic compounds. It should probably go without saying, but the numbing, sedating body buzz almost always leads to a long and deep snooze, making this strain a popular choice for insomniacs.
The Final Word…
So, there you have it! The Dude is a fantastic connoisseur’s hybrid that brings both immense relaxation and potential medicinal comfort. It doesn’t matter whether you grow it indoors or out – it always delivers the goods with an explosion of dense buds and thickly-layered trichomes. These feminized seeds ensure that the turnout is all-female 99% of the time. Whenever The Dude comes knocking, you know you’re gonna have a good time!
