Cali Chem by IC Collective
Cali Chem is an exclusive strain from IC Collective, a California cultivator that riffs on one of the most magical and iconic strains ever created: Chem Dog. This 27-year-old strain is steeped in lore, touted as the parent of Sour Diesel and known for its association with The Grateful Dead. A cross between Cookies N Chem and Chem 91, samples of Cali Chem have tested as high as 29 percent THC.
Cali Chem’s decadent aroma evokes skunky cheese and a sweet dessert, with a side of diesel and earth all at once. Its buds — somehow both fluffy and sticky icky — sparkle, loaded with trichomes. A pleasing inhale and mellow, creamy exhale led me to a happy, playful high that elicited both a chatty and social response. Therapeutically, Cali Chem provides a strong body high that melts away physical pain: a beautiful mix of mind and body relief, with a touch of fun.
