About Chocolate Glue
Blending the best of some very potent strains, Chocolate Glue is a tasty indica-dominant hybrid. Created by the Denver-based Third Eye Genetics, this bud is a cross between notoriously heavy Gorilla Glue #4 and Chocolate Lava. What results is an aromatic smoke with soothing, long-lasting effects. Chocolate Glue’s THC content can range from 20% to a whopping 29%.
Chocolate Glue’s buds are somewhat visually underwhelming, with a smaller than average size. Clinging together in tight, pebbly clusters, these flowers maintain a roughly tapered, conical shape. Despite mostly indica influences, their internal structure leans more sativa, with a loose internal structure and wispy, ragged-looking leaves. These leaves themselves are a mossy yellowish-green and are twisted through with brown pistils and dotted with translucent white trichomes.
Flowers of Chocolate Glue give off a predominantly hashy, spicy odor, perhaps due to the strain’s Kush backbone. A deeper whiff may also detect some sweet, fruity notes. Grinding up these buds, meanwhile, releases more of a fresh, piney scent. When combusted in a pipe or joint, Chocolate Glue burns with a heavy, acrid smoke that’s liable to tickle the sinuses and cause a coughing fit. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a woodsy, earthy flavor with slight traces of cocoa.
Like many other indica-inflected strains, Chocolate Glue has a slow, creeping high that may not hit the user until 10 or 15 minutes after ingestion. At first, smokers may experience a headrush that brings dizziness and disorienting sensations like an increased pulse around the temples. Eventually, these facial tics dissolve, revealing a new state of consciousness. Consumers may experience bizarre sensory distortions like a flattening of visual depth perception or an uncanny sense of time moving more slowly. Those who are so inclined can take these psychedelic vibes to the next level with some moody music or an engaging movie. Alternatively, Chocolate Glue’s mental stimulation can open up new pathways of creative thinking, allowing for daydreaming, brainstorming, or working on artistic, open-ended projects.
As time passes, Chocolate Glue’s mental properties begin to take a backseat to strong physical effects. A tingle of relaxation that begins in the neck may slowly radiate out through the core and extremities, weighing down any smokers who may have been physically active. Those who are already taking it easy, on the other hand, may find themselves sinking into their surroundings as any outside worries or preoccupations are rendered irrelevant. Increased intake can make this heavy relaxation progress into total couch lock. As such, Chocolate Glue is recommended for evening or nighttime consumption when it can be fully savored.
An enjoyable recreational strain, Chocolate Glue has several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its mellow euphoria can temporarily numb the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. The strain can relieve physical pain as well, whether it’s temporary or due to chronic illnesses like COPD or lupus. Anti-inflammatory properties may also take the sting out of discomforts like nausea and headaches. In sufficiently relaxed circumstances, Chocolate Glue can even lull smokers to sleep, making it a viable option for treating insomnia. Because it comes with little risk of obsessive, recursive thinking, this strain is a good option for patients who are prone to paranoia or panic.
Unfortunately for home growers, seeds of Chocolate Glue are not available for sale online. Those looking to cultivate their own should find a trusted source from which to obtain clippings of mature, healthy plants of the strain. These clippings can be fostered as genetically identical “clones” and can be grown indoors or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. While little information is available on best practices specific to growing Chocolate Glue, its sativa-typical flowers imply that plants can be somewhat tall and branchy and may require occasional pruning; these wispy buds also suggest that crops have a longer than average flowering time of between 9 and 10 weeks.
A heady, spacey indica with a rich flavor, Chocolate Glue is an excellent strain for winding down at the end of a long day. It’s enjoyable whether toked alone or shared with friends.
