DO-SI-DOS STRAIN REVIEW
Do-Si-Dos is an exotic strain that not only is hard to attain, but rappers boast its almost supernatural powers. Colorado natives love this strain that not only smells great but has the beauty to back it up. Do-Si-Dos is a delicious strain that isn’t to be slept on.
Do-Si-Dos is an indica dominant hybrid that comes from the combination of Face Off OG and Girl Scout Cookies. Do-Si-Dos gets its sweet, minty scent from its parent Girl Scout Cookies. With glittering trichomes, bright pistils, and lime green and lavender leaves, this strain is a feast for the eyes. Its aroma is pungent, sweet, and earthy with slight floral funkiness.
Avid cannabis smoker and advocate, rapper Trippie Redd is once again the one who alerted me of this strain’s existence. “I’m smoking this Do-Si-Dos, feeling the energy,” the rapper croons on his track A.L.L.T.Y. 3 featuring Baby Goth. Since I heard that, I’ve been extremely curious about the effects of this strain. Do-Si-Dos provides a mixture of effects such as relaxation, sleepiness, euphoria, happiness, and the power to uplift your mood. Medically, this strain is amazing for stress, pain, depression, insomnia, and even headaches.
The Do-Si-Dos strain can be a bit expensive depending on where you’re getting it from. CRU Cannabis, Bloom Farms, and Cali Kush Farms are some of the few places you can procure this elusive strain. 1/8 will run you anywhere from $38-$45. If you’re in a state where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, the app Weedmaps is a great way to seek out dispensaries and delivery services that may carry this strain for the low. I was able to get 10g from a delivery service I found called LA Green Run for $65. I consider this a pretty decent deal.
When it arrived, I could easily smell it through the bag. This bud is super dank. I wasn’t sure what to expect because cannabis affects people differently. I recently made the switch to smoking less blunts and more joints. My throat will thank me later. The first time I tried this strain, I kept it simple and rolled a joint. This was also the point I realized how difficult rolling king size papers is. The bud is fluffy and dense while still being easy to break up with the hands. I tend to overmedicate with certain strains when rolling a blunt, hence the change. Do-Si-Dos is just as powerful as they claim and I’m glad I started with a lower dosage. It’s surprisingly minty on the exhale and not too harsh. Overall super soothing to smoke.
EFFECTS & USES
I hadn’t noticed any particular stress or tension I was holding on to before I smoked, however, I still felt a great sense of relief and calm. It was an intensely relaxing experience just as others had claimed. I was definitely feeling the energy within just 10 minutes. I found myself to be quite talkative and sociable during and after using this strain. I was in a generally great mood! It wasn’t intolerable, but rather uplifting and encouraging. This strain is a great way to start the day!
The effects of the Do-Si-Dos strain lasted about 4 hours. Focus wasn’t one of my strongest points after medicating with this strain, but it wasn’t to the point where I’d consider it a negative effect. I was still able to carry out basic tasks like making waffles for breakfast since this was a wake and bake. Do-Si-Dos is a dope strain that isn’t to be slept on.
