Those who imbibe in the Mint Chocolate Chip cannabis strain won’t have to wait long to feel its effects, usually beginning with a rush of blood to the head and a blush in the cheeks. Some note an increase in their saliva production, as well as a tightening feeling around the forehead. Thought speed might pick up at the onset of Mint Chocolate Chip’s high, as well as association of thoughts. This lends Mint Chocolate Chip well to tasks like analysis or creative brainstorming, and its not unusual for this strain to lead to hallucinations of a mild variety.
After around sixty minutes, Mint Chocolate Chip will move down from the mind and into the body, allowing a deep relaxation to occur.

Medical cannabis users appreciate Mint Chocolate Chip’s ability to help focus (particularly for those suffering with issues like ADD), as well as its power to combat stress or chronic pain.
