Do Si Dos Cannabinoid/Terpene Profile
The Do Si Dos strain has an average THC content of at least 23%, with phenotypes ranging from 18% to past 30%.
Most strains of Do Si Dos present with CBD levels between 0.5% and 1.0%, and certain varieties also have detectable amounts of other minor cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, and CBN. Still, with such high THC levels, Do Si Dos users can expect some of the classic high THC side effects such as dry mouth and dry eyes.
Do Si Dos is rich in the terpenes Caryophyllene and Limonene, with moderate amounts of Linalool and smaller amounts of Myrcene and Humulene.
Caryophyllene is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory, relieving pain. It has also been proven to soothe stress and anxiety.
Limonene is known for its energizing, uplifting effects, provides relief from anxiety and stress and improves the mood. It is also an antibacterial and antifungal, and enhances digestion.
Linalool is well-known for its stress-relieving, anti-anxiety, and anti-depressant effects which can offset classic THC side effects. Linalool is also among the world’s oldest known sleep aids and boasts many medical properties.
Myrcene soothes pain and is known for soothing herbal effects. Humulene relieves pain and may soothe an overactive appetite.
Do Si Dos History and Genetics
Not much is known about the Do Si Dos genetics other than its parentage—but really, that’s all you need to know. This 70% indica/30% sativa indica-dominant hybrid strain is a cross of the famous GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) and parent strain Face Off OG, an indica that is totally under-appreciated, as far as we are concerned. (It goes back to OG Kush, Chemdawg, and Hindu Kush and is very well-named.)
If You Love Do Si Dos Marijuana, Try These Strains
If you love the creativity and happy mood you get from Headband or Super Sour Diesel but want a calmer, more relaxed suite of effects, Do Si Dos is a great strain. If you love to sleep with Paris OG or Hindu Kush but you’re not quite ready to call it a night, Do Si Dos is a perfect strain for you.
And if you love the tingly body high effects of Dogwalker OG Peanut Butter Breath, or Ice Cream Cake, Do Si Dos is going to be right in that zone for you.
Growing the Do Si Dos Strain
Like many indica strains, Do Si Dos flowers have a dense structure and the buds, typically small and heavy, form in clusters that can resemble popcorn balls. The small, forest green and lime green leaves curl toward the central stems, tightly inward, covered in bright orange pistils and shiny white trichomes.
Do Si Dos seeds are friendly to growing both indoors and outdoors. Ideally, Do Si Dos plants thrive in daytime temperatures ranging between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and a semi-humid climate. Improve indoor results using advanced techniques such as the Sea of Green (SOG) or Screen of Green (SCROG) grow methods.
Do Si Dos is one of those strains that can have a lot of bag appeal at the dispensary because its leaves may turn purple when activated by cold weather during the growing process. This is due to the temperature triggering the appearance of pigments in the genetics of the strain, called anthocyanins. To make these colorful purple hues happen in your crop, remember to expose the plants to cold nighttime temperatures just before the flowering time.
Do Si Dos has an average yield and flowers in 8 to 9 weeks. Remember, Do Si Dos can be a very aromatic strain. Stealth growers, especially inside, should invest in carbon air filters, exhaust fans, and other odor control measures.
If you’re trying to plant Do Si Dos seeds, be patient with the result. While they’re a moderately difficult strain to grow, the results will be worth it.
