The Cali Connection’s CHEM-4 OG perfectly represents the combination of selection and reproduction work with the SFV OGK F4 on one side, and luck with the Chem 4 on the other, which made this cannabis genetics a legend that quickly crossed the borders of his native North America.
It all started during a Grateful Dead concert at Deer Creek Amphitheatre in Indiana, where a grower named Joe Brand may have sold a bag of weed to another grower who attended the concert, a chemdog. The origins of this cannabis strain are obscure, but its excellent quality motivated Chemdog to germinate some of the 13 seeds found in the harvest ceded by Joe Brand.
Each female obtained was interesting, but the Chem 4, discovered after several attempts, is the most representative of the initial variety according to Joe, who together with Chemdog made the selection of this mother plant. This genetics shared by Chemdog quickly became highly sought after for its numerous qualities and that is when the hybridization work was undertaken with this line, whose most popular descends is nothing more than the famous OG Kush variety.
The Cali Connection proposes here a cross between the Chem 4 clone and a male San Fernando Valley OG Kush F4, in order to bring lemon-scented shades to Chem 4 while increasing the performance of the SFV OG Kush.
Chem 4 OG will have a relatively compact growth, but will literally explode in flowering, where its internodes will separate quickly: FIM pruning, supercropping and other optimization techniques will be highly recommended to keep the canope homogeneous.
