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.

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.

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.
