Chocolope is one of those sativa strains that genuinely deserve the label “Wake ‘n’ Bake strain for the working man/woman”. It is perfect for those who enjoy an extra pick me up alongside their morning coffee, to get their brain in gear and transition into a focused and creative state of mind. This welcome trait of Chocolope mainly comes from one of its parents, Chocolate Thai.
DNA Genetics took the activating and inspiring traits of Chocolate Thai and combined them with another, equally breathtaking sativa, Cantaloupe Haze. Together they make a strain that not only wakes you up but also gives off a scent that is a joy for your olfactory system.
Even though Chocolope is a breeze to cultivate, she comes with some points of caution. Most important is her vulnerability to mold and mildew, so keep the humidity levels of your indoor facility in check! Her side branches tend to grow long, which make her an ideal plant to use the SOG and SCROG techniques. However, due to the fact that her buds grow to enormous sizes, you’ll need to provide these lanky side branches with some extra support, especially when growing her outdoors. Oh! And don’t overdo it with fertilizers and nutrients!
The Chocolope plant looks like a supermodel whose head is slightly out of proportion from the rest of her body. The tall and slim stem and branches can hardly support her massive and dense, pyramid-shaped flowers. The flowers themselves, however, have great bag-appeal. They have a lovely light-green hue, with orange to light-brown pistils, while wearing a thick fur coat of frosty and juicy trichomes. And her perfume! My goodness, does she smell nice! Her earthy undertone is complimented by the sweet scent of vanilla and chocolate, maybe even some coffee and nutty notes, somewhere in the background! Yet another reason to smoke this baby with your Cup-O-Joe.
Chocolope is a 90% pure sativa whose THC-levels lie around an average of 19%, while her CBD-levels are slightly under 0.1 to 0.2%. She has a total terpene-count of 2.5%, where the majority is made up by the terpenes Myrcene (1.24%), Caryophyllene (0.32%) and Alpha Pinene (0.354%). Canna-Test had the next results:
Like I said before, Chocolope is an activator. She will get your day started with plenty of energy and a big smile on your face! You will feel motivated and focused, while waves of creative insights flow through your mind. She will also instill you with social confidence, making it easier for you to engage with your colleagues. Of course, all of this goes for pastime activities as well, making any social gathering a relaxed and fun affair.
Even though Chocolope can aid in the reduction of pain, her real strength lies in the treatment of mental issues. Chocolope can help reduce the symptoms of stress, fatigue, (social) anxiety or depression. Patients who are struggling with PTSD for instance should try this strain to help improve the quality of their everyday lives.
Because Chocolope can be quite strong, especially for beginners, there is a chance that some users might experience a slight rush of anxiety. This is only due to brain-receptors becoming slightly overwhelmed by the increase of the body’s own endocannabinoïds. It will pass soon enough, so, keep this in mind and remain calm.
