Chocolope: A Lively Flower

Chocolope, otherwise known as D-Line, is an exquisite Sativa dominant hybrid strain. It’s composed of 95% Sativa and around 5% Indica.

Breeder DNA Genetics made Chocolope strain by crossing the delicious fan-favorite Chocolate Thai with Cannalope Haze. The result is a dynamic, energizing Sativa that is a direct homage to the chocolaty strains popular in the 1980s, with THC levels ranging between 18% and 21%.

Chocolope  has won several honors in the High Times Cannabis Cup and the High Life Cup, and it was also featured on the cover of High Times magazine as Strain of the Year in 2007.

Chocolope Appearance

Unlike the buds of Indica varieties that generally resemble nuggets, Chocolope has extended barrel-shaped buds. The buds are dark green with vibrant orange pistil hairs, and they are relatively loosely-packed.

Chocolope is recognisable by its dark green buds mixed with vibrant orange pistil hairs.

The buds tend to be very sticky, but they’re typically easier to break up than pure Indica nugs, so you probably won’t be needing a grinder.

Chocolope Taste and Aroma

Chocolope has a bittersweet, cacao and coffee aroma with subtle earthy undertones. 

The buds have a particularly dank, earthy smell with a hint of sweetness. When they are broken up and combusted, the earthy scent of this lively flower is somewhat more intense. 

Chocolope is a perfect mixture of cacao & coffee aroma and earthy smell with a hint of sweetness.

The smoke from this strain is very smooth, and on the inhale it bears a resemblance to parent strain Cannalope Haze. It tastes mostly fruity with a twist of chocolate.

Cocoa and coffee notes are far more noticeable when the smoke is exhaled. 

The taste of chocolate is rarely found in the portfolio of cannabis varieties. The landrace parent strain Chocolate Thai may have acquired it through some combination of terpene production and picking up nutrients from the fertile soil that was also used to grow coffee through terroir (the environmental factors that affect a crop’s phenotype).

Chocolope Effects

Chocolope’s high takes hold quickly, and users will first notice a compellingly euphoric head buzz. With virtually none of the body sensations associated with Indicas and Indica dominant hybrids, Chocolope’s effect are very uplifting.

It is well suited for daytime use, and the cerebral properties of Chocolope make it an awesome wake and bake strain.

Nighttime use of Chocolope is not the best of ideas, as it can easily interfere with sleep.

On the other hand, the energizing properties of this strain make it a great social lubricant, perfect for parties and other social occasions.

Chocolope is more suited for daytime use.

Since it’s pretty high in THC, individuals who are hypersensitive to weed should consume Chocolope in moderation.

Despite its potency, many users report that the high from this strain lasts shorter compared to other Sativas.

Chocolope Growing Requirements

Chocolope possesses some characteristics that make it a difficult strain for beginners. As with many other Sativas, Chocolope plants can grow very tall.

Although outdoor environments provide all the necessary vertical space, this strain is also prone to mold, which means that growers will have to keep a close eye, especially in humid areas. 

Indoor cultivation allows for better climate control, but presents the problem of space. Growers can tame the exceptional height of these plants by pruning and bending early in the vegetative stage.

Chocolope is a rather difficult strain for growing. It requires special conditions and a lot of space.

Whether indoors or outdoors, growers who supplement Chocolope’s feeding regimen with nutrient mixes will find that these plants have an exceptional appetite. They are prone to showing signs of nutrient deficiency until properly fed.

Finally, this strain has an exceptionally lengthy flowering time. Parent strain Chocolate Thai can be held accountable for this lag, with a particularly durable flowering period of 14 weeks.

Crossing of Chocolate Thai with Cannalope Haze allows Chocolope to have a somewhat shorter, although still significantly long flowering time of 10 to 12 weeks. This extended flowering period is worth the wait, as Chocolope yields as much as 60 grams (or 2 ounces) per square foot.

The Choom Gang

It began in 1979 with a group of friends on a small hawaiian island, with an even smaller van. This weed loving crew would go on to influence our world, but back then it wasn’t about the future, it was about having good times with good friends. Plenty has changed since then, but one thing remains the same; they are still sharing adventures, sparking ideas, and cultivating good times.

1. Please consume responsibly.
2. When canning any food at home (e.g. cannabutter or canna-oil) you should be very careful since there can be a risk of the appearance of toxin that can lead to botulism, a very serious illness. This happens when food is canned, processed, stored or handled. Bacteria that cause botulism can very quickly grow in cannabis edibles that are made at home. Bacteria can cause botulism poisoning which is a very serious illness that affects the body’s nerves and produces serious health consequences.
