Although Chocolate Haze is now offered by some retailers as a strain in its own right, it is likely a phenotype of the Chocolope strain from DNA Genetics, also referred to as D-Line. Tasting heavily of chocolate, a flavor of pot that was particularly popular in the 1980s, this strain imparts an uplifting and energetic buzz. Receiving some OG Chocolate Thai seeds in the 1990s, with the criteria of survivor plants that finish early, DNA Genetics selected a very fine female specimen to cross with their Cannalope Haze. With its effects lasting two hours or more and having as much as 17% THC, Chocolate Haze may be useful to those suffering from depression, ADD/ADHD, stress, and anxiety. It may also ease minor aches and pains, arthritis, and migraines.
A space hog, Chocolate Haze will grow both vertically and horizontally in its eight to ten week flowering period. These plants may produce between 400 and 600 grams per square meter. Chocolate Haze can do well in soil and hydroponic set-ups, but the height may make it better suited for an outdoor grow. This strain has a lower resistance to molds and should not be grown by the inexperienced as it can require a lot of pruning. Chocolate Haze should be ready outdoors near the end of October or the beginning of November.
Flowering period is about 9-10 weeks. It is grown both indoors and outdoors. Outdoor harvesting typically begins in mid-October.
