Chocolope – DNA Genetics
• 2nd Place Cannabis Cup, Best Overall Strains, 2007
• HIGH TIMES Top 10 Strain, 2007
Anyone who remembers the Chocolate Thai buds that went around in the 1980s will be thrilled to hear that the DNA Genetics boys have been hard at work reviving the incredible taste and cerebral high of that fantastic weed from yesteryear. Don and Aaron sprinkled their Chocolate Thai female with pollen from their Cannalope male and then backcrossed the progeny to shorten the flowering time a bit, while still retaining that unique chocolaty flavor.
This almost pure sativa takes a bit longer than some strains to finish flowering, but it yields quite nicely and has great medicinal value. Unseasoned smokers should beware: Stifled giggles can turn into uncontrollable laughter, and some people even report racing hearts and paranoia as among the symptoms of overpuffing this strain. One friend referred to it as a “high-school” high, one that reminded her of her earliest experiences with cannabis. If that sounds interesting to you, try some potent and flavorful Chocolope in your garden.
