About Cocoa Kush
Cocoa Kush is an evenly balanced hybrid strain of cannabis descended from cannabis royalty. This strain is a cross between a Sativa-dominant Blueberry plant and DJ Short’s Blueberry plant. DJ Short, the original breeder of this strain, is a world-famous cannabis grower that’s been growing and supplying cannabis since the 1970’s. His Blueberry strain has not only become a staple in the cannabis market, but a genetic ancestor to a surprising number of strains on the market today. DJ Short’s strains are almost always award winners, and even when they’re not they become fan-favorites of cannabis consumers from all walks of life. Cocoa Kush does not disappoint, even if its average THC concentration of 15% seems mediocre at best.
.Physically, Cocoa Kush flowers take on a number of characteristics typical of sativa-dominant strains of cannabis. They are elongated and pepper-shaped, taking on hues ranging from mint green all the way down the line to deep purple depending on the harvest and cure. Typically, these dark-olive-green nugs are covered in winding orange pistils and a coating of amber-colored trichomes. A good grinder is almost necessary to break down these buds, as they are covered in a thick, syrupy resin layer that will make your fingers beyond sticky if you try to break it down by hand. Despite the fact that Cocoa Kush is derived from two Blueberry plants, this strain has a unique and spontaneous aroma that smells just like a cup of hot chocolate. You should expect rich chocolate and cocoa scents to be accented by hints of nuts and spices. The flavor is much more vibrant than the aroma is, however. You should expect to taste chocolate and licorice with an aftertaste that tastes like nuts and spices.
Despite this strain’s average THC concentration, the effects of this strain are reportedly quite intense, and often too much for some beginners to handle. At the onset of the high, you might experience a cerebral rush that will give you the spins and send your mood to cloud nine. While you are now incredibly elated and quite content with your current situation, your mind will enter a peaceful state that is almost trance-like. As the high continues, this effect will spread throughout your body, calming and relaxing you entirely at once. As the high begins to fade you might find yourself exhausted and nearly sedated, just barely escaping the seductive tendrils of an afternoon nap. Cocoa Kush is best consumed in the daytime or afternoon when you have a couple of hours to spare for the full range of effects provided by this strain.
