Dutch growers created Sativa-dominant Chocolope (originally known as D-Line) by crossing the Chocolate Thai and Cannalope strains and their work has been well rewarded by three placings at the annual High Times Cannabis Cup. This popular weed came second overall in 2007, third overall in 2008 and then went on to take second place in the competition’s Sativa section in 2010. High Times writer Donny Danko also chose it as one of his top 10 weeds of 2007.
The weed has a somewhat skunky odour tempered by tones of citrus fruits. When you smoke it, you’ll detect hints of coffee and chocolate. This potent weed will give you a euphoric mental gearshift as soon as it hits. Inexperienced smokers should tread carefully as its powerful intellectual impact can be shocking to the uninitiated. In medical use, Chocolope is recommended for poor appetite and muscle pain.
This Sativa plant grows tall and lanky with its many sidestems branching outwards and bearing lots of dense buds covered in orange and red hairs. THC content is up to 20 percent.
Grown indoors, Chocolope seeds do well in hydro or soil and favour a SCROG set up, allowing you to train the lengthy branches. Flowering time is eight to 10 weeks and you can expect yields ranging from 400 to 500 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, Chocolope seeds can grow tall and may need supporting. Plant the seedlings when the risk of frost has passed. Assuming this is around the end of April, the plants should be ready for harvest by mid-October.
To conclude this Chocolope review, cannabis gourmets love it for its chocolate flavour and experienced smokers enjoy the potent cerebral rush this weed delivers. Newcomers to growing choose Chocolope for its ease of cultivation.
