Chocolate Mint OG is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. This strain is the product of meticulous breeding by the Humboldt Seed Organization, a cannabis collective formed by the hundreds of cannabis growers in the infamous Humboldt County, California (an area also referred to as “The Emerald Triangle”). Chocolate Mint OG, one of their four most popular strains, is the product of crossing Grandaddy Purple with Emerald OG.
Although the strain has seen widespread availability in most recreational and medical markets, there are a number of personal growers who enjoy this incredibly fast-flowering strain for its wonderful aroma and high yields. Chocolate Mint OG is best consumed in the afternoon and evening hours, as its potent effects and average 24% THC concentration are nothing to mess around with.
Aroma and Flavour
These bright and fluffy nugs are fully developed in 55-65 days of flowering, and take the form of bright green popcorn. You’ll spot a lot of deep purple undertones in this strain, a holdover from its GDP parent plant. The surface of these flowers is covered in a number of winding orange hairs and a hearty coating of milky white and translucent trichomes which help give the already wonderful flower a lot of bag appeal.
The aroma produced by these flowers is a spicy minty aroma mixed with a bit of fresh wood that is reminiscent of the redwood forests this strain was first grown in. The flavor is a wonderful blend of chocolate, coffee, mint, pine, and a bit of spicy herb. This strain can easily be grown indoors and outdoors, though the yields will vary like with any strain. Indoors, you should expect 400-600 grams per square meter of plant. The same 3m-tall plant will produce between 1000-2000 grams in an outdoor grow.
Most describe the indica body high as a creeping high, which is likely to hit you when you’re off-guard. The high from Chocolate Mint OG, on the other hand, is immediate and powerful. No sooner than you finish your hit and begin passing to the guy next to you, the effects of this strain will hit you like a train, immediately filling your head with happy thoughts and relaxation. While this incredibly uplifting and euphoric feeling settles in, your mind will be calmed and relaxed. Any negative thoughts, doubts, and insecurities you might be having melt away under the bright, shining star that is Chocolate Mint OG.
While all of this is going on in your psyche, your body will also be relaxed by this strain’s incredibly potent indica effects. Most describe their pain evaporating and not returning for hours. Some have also described the effects of this strain as nearly-sedative, which is why we recommend consuming this flower in the afternoon or evening hours when a nap or an early bedtime wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
Much like its parents, this strain has big dense buds. With a name as enticing as it sounds, deep flavors and aromas surround Chocolate Mint OG with its notes of chocolate, mint, pine, and spice. The exceptionally potent high is balanced, making this a great strain for experienced smokers who are read to take off.
The Mango Kush strain is an excellent choice for both recreational and medicinal cannabis consumers. Recreational users should enjoy the initial buzz and uplifting effects, whereas medicinal consumers may find it helpful for addressing specific conditions. The most common conditions that users consume Mango Kush to remedy include depression, stress, pain, and insomnia.
