Chem Driver is an evenly balanced hybrid created by crossing two famed strains - Chemdog D and Sundae Driver. It is known for its mellow effects, making it a perfect treat to enjoy during the day. At the same time, the weed is anything but weak. Due to its Chem D lineage and the THC content ranging from 13 to 15%, it is enough to smoke just a little of it to indulge yourself in a cerebral high. Besides an above-average level of THC, the marijuana contains cannabinoids such as:

  • CBN 0.19-0.29%
  • CBG 0.26-0.38%
  • CBC 0.11-0.14%
  • THCV 0.06-0.13%

Smell, Flavor, and Terpenes

The smell of the Chem Driver weed strain is truly awesome and unique. It merges traces of citrus sweetness with a pleasant aroma of pine and lavender brought in by the linalool terpene. Add to that the scent of gassy diesel coming from the caryophyllene and myrcene, and you can see why this mix is so popular among stoners.
