Do-si-dos: Leafly’s Strain of the Year 2021
Dance away your worries and boogie away your blues with Do-si-dos, Leafly’s Strain of the Year 2021. Nobody can argue the pedigree of Do-si-dos, it’s a strain borne of genuine cannabis royalty (OG Kush Breath and Face Off OG).
Leafly’s strain page is jam-packed with gushing, positive reviews. The flavors are complimented, the beauty of the crystal-covered buds is celebrated, but 99% of the reviewers just want to talk about the high, and we know exactly why.
The buzz from Do-si-dos is out of this world, as one reviewer put it, ‘I’ve got a high tolerance & this strain never ceases to amaze. Helps with pain, anxiety, nervous system, nausea, sleep… everything! Warning, it’s knocked me on my ass more than once! Props!!!’
It’s been described (hundreds of times) as the perfect night-time smoke. The best way to relax at the end of the day, to cast your worries aside and breathe easy. This is probably down to a combination of high THC (27%) and the dominant terpene, limonene.
According to Leafly, ‘inhalation of limonene vapor increases serotonin and dopamine levels in key regions of the brain that are associated with anxiety, depression, and OCD.’ The limonene also helps with the sweet, skunky flavors, adding a delicious citrus twist. This is a seriously tasty way to relax and a well-deserved Strain of the Year.

Before exploring this hybrid and its mellowing effects, let’s look at the main talking points of the Do-si-dos weed strain.
Do-si-dos strain flavors
The Do-si-dos cannabis strain is truly one to behold. You’ll notice hues of purple throughout the light green bud and burnt orange pistils. Rather than the snowy effect on breeds like White Widow, the trichomes coat the do-si-dos like a piece of glistening candy.
As far as the do-si-dos smell goes, this flower could replace a rose on Valentine’s day. Its pungent yet sweet floral smell is due to the commanding number of limonene terpenes. You should also taste berry and citrus hints, making the do-si-dos weed smooth on the throat.

Do-si-dos Strain Smoke Review
Check out our Do-si-Dos smoke review from Parker Curtis. He details all there is to know about Do-Si-Dos, from the look and feel of the bud, the taste of the toke and the all-important growing information:
Do-si-dos strain grow information
The do-si-dos can yield as much as seventeen ounces if grown in the right conditions. If you’re starting as a grower, this marijuana breed should keep your confidence sky-high. The reason for this is mainly down to its easy-to-grow and straightforward needs.
Although you’ll get the best results when grown indoors, the Do-si-dos #6 strain can also flourish in a greenhouse. You’ll need to wait between eight to ten weeks for this breed to flower, which can reach up to 100 cm in height.
As for the exact Do-si-dos grow info, you’ll want to keep the temperature around 74 degrees Fahrenheit and an RH (relative humidity) of 55%. In the late stages of vegetation, you can encourage the lavender colors by exposing your cannabis plant to colder temperatures.
Whether you’ve got your hands on a cherry Do-si-dos strain or any other delicious variant, you’ll want to give the same treatment. As a general rule of thumb, make sure that you:
- Water your weed plant generously.
- Use high-quality soil like coco peat for better water and oxygen retention.
- Give it plenty of light, as the weed strain Do-si-dos thrives in the sun.
- Regularly test nutrient levels and correct any deficiencies.
You’ll know it’s time to harvest as soon as the hairs on the weed bud turn orange. When it comes to trimming, consider using the wet method. It allows you to remove the leaves without disrupting the trichomes and visual appeal as much as you would when dry cutting.
If you’re planning to make your own do-si-dos THC oil, you’ll need to put your herb in the oven. Set the temperature to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and allow to decarb for up to 30 minutes. The result will be a cannabis wax – perfect for sumptuous edible recipes.
As we mentioned earlier, the do-si-dos genetics come from the legendary Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) breed. It was created by combining OG Kush Breath and Face Off OG. Just like its folks, the Do-si-dos strain is indica dominant, enforcing its relaxing effects.
Below is a visual guide of this strain’s interesting genetics, showing why it’s such a desirable bud. It also explains why some dispensaries call it the Do-si-dos cookies strain, accrediting its one iconic parent.
Some growers have taken things further, increasing the weed breed’s flavor profile. The orange Do-si-dos looks to bring out the citrus flavors by crossing it with Orange Tree breed genetics.
