It may sound like a type of ice cream, but Chocolate Chunk is actually an Indica weed strain with genetic origins from the Hindu Kush region that straddles Afghanistan and Pakistan. It’s a smoker’s and grower’s favorite on both sides of the Atlantic, with the best results achieved by indoor growing.
The Chocolate Chunk strain gives a quick and heavy hit which will leave you relaxed and even a little bit sleepy. It has a hashy flavor reminiscent of the slightly bitter taste of top quality dark chocolate and the smell combines sweet and earthy notes. Chocolate Chunk weed can help with insomnia, and some medical users also take it to alleviate chronic muscle and skeletal pain.
The plant grows with bright green foliage and the broad leaves tend to darken as the plant reaches maturity. It has the sturdy structure typical of Indicas, attaining an indoor height of 100 to 130 centimetres. The dense buds are conical and deep green. With a THC level as high as 20%, this weed really packs a punch.
As this plant has a squat, low growing habit with a single central cola, it is ideally suited for the SOG method. Flowering time is eight to nine weeks and skilful growers can expect to harvest between 350 and 400 grams per square metre. Chocolate Chunk is not recommended for outdoor growing in cooler northern climates.
If you enjoy a powerful smoke with a subtle and complex flavor, Chocolate Chunk is a great choice. This strain is well known for exhibiting all of the best characteristics of the Indica types.
