The origins of Chocolate OG are unknown, with some speculating it was produced by crossing Chocolate Rain and the True OG strain. Developers of this strain are anonymous, although it seems to have spread out of Colorado. THC and CBD levels are unconfirmed. While somewhat imprecise, it is clear that THC levels are very high indeed – up to 26%. Therefore, it can be stated is that Chocolate OG is an extremely potent strain that is ideal for experienced users of marijuana. For those interested in this intriguing strain, it can be found in many cannabis stores and online dispensaries.
The appearance of Chocolate OG is typical of indica strains with large flowers that resemble pinecones and dense buds composed of tightly-coiled, dark green leaves. Pistils are a dark chocolate brown and there is an even covering of white, sticky trichomes.
The strain’s OG lineage is evident in its skunky odour and taste. But Chocolate OG is characterized by a unique cocoa scent, although very often the most dominant smell is of a pungent cheese. When exhaled the smoke has a pleasant coffee flavor.
As a very dominant indica strain, the high from Chocolate OG is slow acting. When it finally arrives it produces a powerful body high and cerebral effects. These can be so strong that some users may feel distinct psychedelic sensations. The main effects will be felt in the body with limbs becoming increasingly heavy. There is also a good chance that eyelids will also start to fall. For these reasons, it is certainly best to consume Chocolate OG later in the evening.
The heavy effects of Chocolate OG can have medical benefits which is also part of our Budget Buds line-up. It can reduce severe pain and limit inflammation. Chocolate OG may also be used to treat conditions such as insomnia and a lack of appetite.
Grand Daddy Purple is a 100% indica strain that contains up to 23% THC content and very low levels of CBD. It was developed in San Francisco and is the product of crossing two well-known indica strains – Big Bud and Purple Urkle. As a pure indica with high THC levels, Grand Daddy Purple has become popular as a guaranteed way to find tranquility.
Often referred to as Grand Daddy Purps or, simply, GDP, this strain is reported as being easily the most requested strain from medical cannabis dispensaries. It is also used recreationally and is readily available from outlets and online dispensaries.
The Purple moniker derives from the plants aroma which has clear fruity, berry-like tones and has been compared to marshmallows. The taste is sweet and reminiscent of grapes.
As a 100% indica strain with a very high THC content, Grand Daddy Purple is an ideal means to find a deeply sedative high. GDP acts quickly to calm the body and mind, as such it is certainly a strain to enjoy in the evening and is particularly well-suited to use as an aid to a good night’s sleep.
GDP can also be used for a range of conditions that are eased by relaxation. Stress and anxiety are effectively reduced by GDP and it is also used to manage chronic pain. This strain is also an obvious choice for anyone suffering from insomnia.
It should be emphasised that GDP was really developed with many of these conditions in mind and is a reliable relaxant that is very effective at treating many conditions. The ‘body-melt’ frequently experienced with high THC indica strains is likely rather than possible and GDP is best used later in the day.
Death Bubba is a new high-quality hybrid. An amazing new strain that might be even better than the sum of its parts.
Those parts are two of the most outstanding marijuana strains in North America – Bubba Kush and Death Star.
During the 1990s Bubba Kush was one of the most famous names in the Californian dope scene, counting Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and Dr Dre as some of its biggest fans.
The Kush phenotype (its particular genetic form) is one of the most important varieties of cannabis. Bubba Kush displays many of the most characteristic Kush attributes. The plant is thick and aquat and the buds dense and chunky. When burnt, Bubba Kush releases the classic Kush hashish flavours and it carries the aroma of coffee mixed with fruity notes.
The effects of Kush are usually heavy and sedative and Bubba Kush is a prime example. A 100% indica strain, with a high THC content, ranging from 15% to 22%, it lulls its users into a sedative state. But the Bubba Kush high is known for not preventing users from maintaining their focus and performing tasks. The strain is a great choice for those wishing to alleviate the symptoms of stress, insomnia and depression.
Meanwhile, in the Midwest, an indica-dominant hybrid strain with an earthy aroma and an unmistakable a blend of lemon and rubber, started to generate a following amongst weed aficionados. Death Star became well-known for the characteristic, creeping onset of its powerful high that broke over users in waves of relaxed euphoria.
The indica/sativa ratio of Death Star is a balanced 75/25, with its potency due to a notably high THC content. The effects of Death Star are typically positive and calming and it is often used to combat depression and stress.
Finally, then, these famous strains have been successfully bred and the result is Death Bubba. Death Bubba is visually remarkable, with deep purple hues and densely packed with trichomes and terpenes.
Combining Death Star and Bubba Kush has produced an extremely pungent skunk which releases a sweet, earthy smoke. Users describe the high as semi-sedative, which relaxes the user and slowly soothes physical discomfort.
Pink Kush as coveted as its OG Kush relative, is an indica-dominant hybrid with powerful body-focused effects. In its exceptional variations, pink hairs burst from bright green buds barely visible under a blanket of sugar-like trichomes, with traces of a sweet vanilla and candy perfume.
Gelato, sometimes known as ‘Larry Bird’, originated in California and is a balanced indica/sativa (55/45) hybrid. It is recommended by budtenders to those searching for strains that display some of the best qualities of different marijuana strains. Gelato has become a popular ‘all-rounder’ strain that is much in demand from cannabis stores and online dispensaries.
Gelato has a typical indica appearance with thick, tightly-structured buds. Although the trichomes are generally short, so not as bright or prominent as on other strains, the bright orange pistils make the strain visually appealing, especially against dark green and purple leaves.
Many strains claim to possess the best aroma around but Gelato might have a winning case. There isn’t one review of Gelato that doesn’t heap praise on the way it smells. The flowers give off a sweet citrus fragrance combined with an unusual doughy aroma. When grinding Gelato an herbal, earthy pungent scent is released. According to some, the taste of Gelato is almost as enjoyable as Italian ice cream, with notes of pine and hazelnut.
The aroma is heavenly with a fun mix of sweet and citrusy scents. Most report the following mix of smells: lowers of Gelato have a predominant smell of pungent citrus, compliments of fruity parent strain Sunset Sherbert. Notes of yeast and dough can be detected as well. Grinding up or breaking apart the flowers gives off a more herbal, earthy profile.
The even blend of indica and sativa influences makes for a well-balanced high. Gelato serves up an equal scoops of stimulation and sedation. It is also potent, THC levels of around 26% are some of the highest of any strain.
The high hits users in a rush, almost on the first inhale and take the form of both body relaxation and a head-buzz. Often users experience mental stimulation, which may alter perceptions of color, time and sound. Gelato leaves users feeling lucid and aware while in a comfortable, relaxed state.
Fruit Loops is an indica-dominant strain that has a lineage of proven cannabis strains – Blue Dream, White Widow, Grapefruit and Blueberry. Each contributes to an enticing hybrid with a fruity terpene profile and high levels of THC. Fruit Loops is often described as a ‘must-have’ cannabis strain and is stocked by cannabis outlets and online dispensaries.
As you might expect, Fruit Loops has a tangy, tropical aroma. Breaking open the buds releases the scent of berries and there are spicy undertones. The taste is similarly fruity with notes of berries and a sweetness that is reminiscent of honey.
Fruit Loops is a fast-acting hybrid which starts with a gentle head-high. Shortly after first inhaling users commonly feel uplifted, their nerves are calmed and they experience feelings of euphoria. Users may feel tiredness dissipate and their energy levels rise but, in general, the head-buzz is soothing.
This improved outlook makes Fruit Loops a good choice for social use. Deep conversations and giggles are likely to ensue when used with friends.
Fruit Loops is normally considered a recreational strain and is especially suited to being used at the end of the day. Its particular profile also makes it suitable for relieving stress, depression and PTSD. Fruit Loops may also be used to combat physical ailments such as joint pains, arthritis and muscle cramps.
