Do-Si-Dos Strain, also known as “Dosi,” is an indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain with qualities similar to its parent, OGKB, a GSC-phenotype. With glittering trichomes, bright pistils, and lime green and lavender leaves, this strain is a feast for eyes. Its aroma is pungent, sweet, and earthy with slight floral funkiness. These classic OG aromas blend nicely with medical-grade body effects that lean toward the sedative side with the addition of Face Off OG genetics. Enjoy a stone, in-your-face buzz off the start that melts down over the body, prettifying the consumer with relaxation that emanates outward.
Named in the tradition of its parent strain Girl Scout Cookies, Do-Si-Dos strain is a soothing indica hybrid. This bud combines aromatic Girl Scout Cookies and the body-melting indica, Face Off OG. The product is a pungent and well-balanced strain whose effects seem to last longer than average. Do-Si-Dos strain can be potent for even experienced cannabis users, with THC levels clocking in at between 19% and a whopping 30%.
Buds of Do-Si-Dos are typically small and adhere to small, popcorn-like clusters. Like many predominantly indica varieties, the flowers have a dense structure, with the small leaves curling tightly inward toward their central stems. What these flowers lack in size, they make up for in color. The leaves themselves are a deep shade of forest green and hold an abundance of bright orange pistils. Sometimes, the leaves also boast hints of purple, which come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the strain’s genetics are activated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, a thick, even coat of icy white trichomes covers these buds and accounts for their psychoactivity. Unlike Girl Scout Cookies, Do-Si-Dos strain smells nothing like its namesake — the flowers explode with an overly sweet, almost fermented odor. Also present are some dank, earthy notes. Meanwhile, grinding up these tight buds gives off some skunkiness, providing evidence of the OG Kush in this bud’s lineage. These strong-smelling flowers can give off a harsh, acrid smoke when combusted. I said this smoke to taste simultaneously fruity and skunky on the exhale. Discreet consumers should keep in mind that Do-Si-Dos’ pungency can carry for quite a distance.
Do-Si-Dos hits the consumer quickly with both barrels of psychoactive — at almost the same time as they detect a tingle in the upper face, smokers may notice an uptick in cerebral functioning. Thoughts may flow in free association and can aid concentration on task-based, analytical kinds of work. This bud may also open up creative avenues and set the stage for brainstorming. A calming body high keeps this cerebral mindset from becoming too buzzy. Rather than agitation, smokers typically felt progressive relaxation that spread down through the core and limbs. This sensation can be a great way to kick back and enjoy some introspective solo time with a drink or some atmospheric music. Alternatively, Do-Si-Dos’ vibe can be uniquely social, sparking conversation and some laughs when shared with like-minded friends. The strain’s combination of mental and physical stimulation makes it a good way to enhance activities that involve full-body coordination, like exercising, dancing, and in the right set and setting, sex. As the high progresses or as dosage is increased, couch lock becomes more of a possibility. Because it tapes down into an immobilized state of calm, Do-Si-Dos is best enjoyed during the late afternoon or early evening.
Do-Si-Dos may also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its physical effects can be an analgesic for aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as because of injury, or chronic, as because of conditions like lupus or arthritis. The strain’s anti-inflammatory properties may numb everyday irritations like headaches and nausea. Psychologically , this bud’s calming vibes can temporarily improve the troubling symptoms of stress and depression. Because it can inspire some intense, recursive thinking in its early stages, Do-Si-Dos is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic and paranoia or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately, seeds of Do-Si-Dos are available for sale online. Once got, we can grow it indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Growers looking to bring out the colorful purple potential of these flowers should temporarily expose their crops to cold (but not freezing) nighttime temperatures just before flowering begins. I said the strain to produce an average yield at harvest time. Finally, just as it is a pungent smoke, Do-Si-Dos can be a very pungent grow; indoor growers looking to keep their operations under wraps should invest in odor control measures like carbon air filters or exhaust fans.
Supremely balanced, Do-Si-Dos’ high will appeal to both indica and sativa lovers. It’s a reliable all-purpose strain for both the casual and frequent smoker.
