What are the effects of Chocolate Thai cannabis?
Chocolate Thai seeds, which are often hard to come by, are now readily available for sale via Pacific Seed Bank!
First appearing in North America in the 1960s, this near-pure sativa strain is descended from a Thai sativa landrace strain. In its original form, it was known as “Thai Sticks” because sellers used to tie its delicate flowers around the stem with hemp fibers. After disappearing for a while, most likely due in part to it not being an easy-to-grow plant, DNA Genetics brought it back by creating Chocolate Thai–the sativa-dominant hybrid version of the original.
Chocolate Thai marijuana plants contain 90% sativa, 10% indica, and a moderate THC content that ranges from 12-16%.
This sativa-heavy strain provides users with energetic and uplifting effects that make it a perfect choice for beginners looking for a wake-and-bake strain that won’t completely overwhelm them.
With its distinct chocolate-coffee scent, Chocolate Thai is a fabulous way to inject your morning with vibrant vim and vigor so that you can step into your day feeling alert, focused, and motivated to be and remain productive.
As its cerebral effects level out, users are left feeling happy and serene, so that the minor stresses and inconveniences of the day just roll like water off a duck’s back.
However, Chocolate Thai’s gentler nature, which is so well-suited to newbies, occasional social users, and those with a lower THC-tolerance level, may not be quite the thing that high-frequency users are looking for as its effects are much milder than marijuana strains with higher THC levels.
What are the therapeutic benefits of Chocolate Thai cannabis?
When it comes to Chocolate Thai’s potential therapeutic benefits to those in the medical cannabis community, its gentle, yet cerebrally stimulating, upbeat nature may be quite effective in helping patients who are experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression find some respite.
In addition, even though this near-pure sativa doesn’t have the physically soothing body high of an indica that can serve as a pain reliever, its cerebral effects are reported to help distract the mind from any mild to moderate physical aches and pains one may be experiencing.
Finally, its rousing and reinvigorating properties mean that Chocolate Thai can also likely help to combat fatigue.
What does Chocolate Thai smell and taste like?
As previously mentioned, Chocolate Thai has a chocolatey aroma that blends perfectly with its equally prominent coffee scent–both of which are nicely enhanced by its subtle spicy notes.
As for this sativa’s flavor profile, it’s pretty much the same as its fragrance, except that its delicious taste of coffee and chocolate is that much more amazing. When combusted, its inhale is said to provide users with the creamy taste of chocolate, and on the exhale, its herbaceous and woody notes go nicely with its dominant coffee overtone. Some users have also reported that after exhaling this treat to the taste buds leaves a delightful bitter chocolate flavor in the mouth.
How do I grow Chocolate Thai cannabis seeds?
Chocolate Thai is not the easiest strain for cannabis growers to cultivate. This is due in part to not a lot is known about it because of its seeds being so challenging to obtain for such a long time. As such, this sativa is probably best reserved for experienced growers to nurture from seed to plant. One saving grace is the fact that Pacific Seed Bank only sells feminized cannabis seeds, which means that the chances of ending up with a male plant are only about 10%.
Even though Chocolate Thai is descended from a landrace strain, it’s considered to be a finicky plant to grow, and will only thrive in a warm climate that is akin to Thailand’s. So, unless you live in a place where the environmental conditions mimic that of Southeast Asia, you will want to stick to indoor cultivation with this one, as then you can create and maintain a faux-tropical environment for your crops.
One other tip is that you’ll probably want to tether your plants so as to prevent their thin and fragile stems from snapping.
What do Chocolate Thai cannabis plants look like?
As is typical for sativa varieties, Chocolate Thai plants grow to be tall and narrow. Its buds, which are small and round, are dense in structure, which is rather surprising seeing as they only contain 10% indica genetics.
When properly cared for, this fussy plant produces nuggets that are a mix of light and dark greens. Light orange pistils wind their way through the buds, which have random sprinklings of tiny sparkling amber trichomes.
When to harvest your Chocolate Thai cannabis plant
Chocolate Thai’s flowering period indoors is approximately 14 weeks, which is in keeping with its sativa genetics. Upon completing their flowering stage, you can look forward to reaping a decent yield of about 340 grams per square meter.
If you live in a place that has the right weather conditions for the outdoor cultivation of this sativa, it should render a harvest of around 340 grams per plant sometime around the end of October.
