This Californian wonder is as captivating in its appearance as it is potent in its effect. The cherry on the cake, however, is its complex yet well-balanced flavor and scent profile.
Heritage & Genetics: Chocolate Mint OG, by the Californian green wizards at Humboldt Seeds, stems from a marriage between Emerald OG and Granddaddy Purple. The result is a potent and fragrant plant that seems to be the embodiment of autumn, with its dark red, brown and purple colored branches and leaves.
Flavor & Aroma: The flavor palette of this 80/20 indica-dominant hybrid is as potent as it is unique. It has the warm flavor of dark chocolate that is reinforced by the scent of spices and pinewood. This spicy and warm flavor profile is balanced out by the fresh and light presence of mint and a slightly sour undertone.
Effect: Chocolate Mint OG’s effect is as powerful as it is long-lasting, both physically and cerebrally. Its mental aspect will leave your mind drifting away into a dream state, while your body eases into a thoroughly relaxed sense of bliss and tranquility.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: For an indica-dominant hybrid, Chocolate Mint OG is a fast-growing strain. In around eight to nine weeks you can expect a satisfactory yield of dense, fragrant buds. Before that time, you can enjoy watching this plant develop its magnificent color transformation from dark-green to a cacophony of deep purple, red and brown hues. The only thing you should keep a keen eye on is humidity. Chocolate Mint OG is quite susceptible to moisture and the consequent threat of mildew.
