VidaCann first released King Dosi in the late spring of 2019, and there doesn’t seem to be much information about this strain online; in fact, there have been a few reports that this is an in-house strain for VidaCann. (If anyone from VidaCann is reading and can confirm this, let me know.)
King Dosi crosses two fairly well-known indica strains: Do-Si-Dos and King Louis XIII. What results is a relatively light to moderate indica in terms of effects, and an interesting terpene/smell profile. King Dosi has been one of the best indica strains I’ve found for relaxing and alleviating general anxiety while remaining functional, and it has a great smell and aesthetic.

Unfortunately, VidaCann doesn’t make their lab reports available, so I have no terpene percentages to provide for this strain. Whenever this information becomes available, I will update this section with the terpenes and their percentages.
This eighth of King Dosi is comprised of several large, beautiful buds. The color is mostly all light green, with a few lowlights. Crystal-clear trichomes generously coat each bud, and red-orange pistils are dispersed throughout.
VidaCann did a nice job of curing this flower – the buds are thick and sticky, and the moisture content is nearly spot on; if a “5” on a 1-10 scale denoted perfect moisture with “1” being too dry and “10” being too moist, then this bud would be around a “4.3” rating. However, given the context that VidaCann went most of the summer with zero flower due to issues with their grow facility, I completely understand the extra caution to ensure that no form of fungi develops on their product.
This flower was cured just as well as their Duct Tape that I reviewed earlier in the year, so it seems that VidaCann is coming back strong after a brief flower hiatus.
Appearance/Cure Rating: 8.20/10.00
King Dosi has a unique terpene profile that stands out to me amongst all the strains I’ve tried in Florida – it’s another really enjoyable strain in this area.
There seems to be a lot going on. This is a “loud” flower, but it’s not really skunky or any of the heavier terpene-type smells. I find there to be a sweet, sharp odor that is accented with earthy and spicy terpenes, and perhaps some subtle citrus and pine terpenes to complete the profile. When broken apart, there is a more sour and subtle fuel-like aroma that comes out.
One of King Dosi’s parents – King Louis VIII – is a cross of OG Kush and LA Confidential, and I can detect hints of the LA Confidential lineage in this terpene profile for sure.
This strain tastes really good when vaped or smoked. It tastes about like it smells – like really high quality cannabis.
Smell/Taste Rating: 8.60/10.00
As far as indica strains go, I find this to be light to moderate in terms of how heavy and sedating the effects are. King Dosi is not immediately sedating or couch-locking, but it is a strain that has more pronounced body effects, rather than being strongly cerebral-stimulating.
There is a gentle cerebral invigoration that comes on almost immediately, but it does not worsen my anxiety or make me feel overstimulated or racy at all. Body relaxation slowly creeps in after about 10 minutes, and becomes more pronounced as time passes – but it doesn’t get to the point where I feel need to nap or sleep unless I use relatively high doses.
King Dosi is one of the best indica strains I have found for alleviating anxiety while allowing me to remain functional. I enjoy mentally stimulating tasks like video games, or watching movies with this strain; I am also writing this review under the effects of this strain, as I do with all my reviews. I am able to keep my train of thought going quite well, and do not feel too sedated to perform this task well. However, I think another hit or two might have me headed to bed before too long – so don’t think this strain isn’t useful for insomnia; I really think that most indica strains can help alleviate insomnia if taken toward the end of the day, and King Dosi is no exception there.
Possibly good for treating:
- Moderate aches and pains
- Headaches and migraines
- Moderate nausea/gastrointestinal issues
- General Relaxation
- Insomnia (Especially in higher doses)
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Effects Rating: 8.40/5.00
Overall Rating: 8.40/10.00
Overall, I would best describe King Dosi as an “excellent” indica strain from VidaCann.
King Dosi is a strain I’d recommend for use during the late afternoon or evening hours. It’s great for winding down at the end of a long day, relaxing, and easing toward the bed at the end of the night. At $50/eighth, I may try this strain again in the future; however, Florida’s variety of strains is getting to be so abundant that I may not be able to revisit it anytime soon. If it were $30 or $40 per eighth, I could definitely see myself keeping one around for its relaxing and anxiolytic effects. For patients who enjoy functional but heavily relaxing indica strains, King Dosi is a good choice.
