The strain we will describe in this review is called Chocolate Rain. It is not the weed that can be found in any shop. Chocolate Rain may be not as famous as Girl Scout Cookies or Jack Herer, but it definitely has its benefits. If you happen to find this strain in a head shop, consider buying it—the Chocolate Rain strain has great potential to become a constant guest in your home.
Chocolate Rain is an indica-dominant strain that originates from two notable breeders—DJ Short and DNA Genetics. The strain has some rather famous parents—Chocolope from DNA Genetics and Cocoa Kush from DJ Short. Both strains are very flavorful and can produce an extremely sweet offspring together. Chocolope has a bitter chocolate flavor with some fruit notes mixed in it. The strain is very popular among stoners and has already won several awards.
Cocoa Kush is a Kush hybrid that also has the attention of the cannabis world. This hybrid is a breed between a female Blueberry sativa and a male Blueberry. The resulted strain has a very complex taste that cannot be described in two words. The aroma is very exotic and rich.
The top-notch genetics of Chocolate Rain show us the full strength of the strain. As of now, three Chocolate Rain phenotypes are known. Two of them are the sativa-dominant, slowly blossoming types. The other phenotype is the most widespread one—it is an indica-dominant strain with fast growth.
If you are a beginner in growing cannabis, you are looking for something easy to grow. You may try your skills with Chocolate Rain. The strain is “grower-friendly” and can be grown indoors, outdoors, and even in a greenhouse. Out of ten seeds, nine usually pop up, and most of them survive till the harvest. The flowering period usually takes about nine or ten weeks. Outdoor harvest is expected in October. The plant will grow equally good in all mediums, so you can choose the way you want to grow it yourself.
The buds are usually semi-dense. Depending on the phenotype, the coloring may be deep green with orange hues or with the addition of chocolate brown hairs.
The Chocolate Rain strain has taken after its parents. The plant's taste is a balanced combination of chocolate and fruity flavors. Those phenotypes that are closer to their berry parent will have minor chocolate notes and a dominant fruit or raspberry taste.
The smell, on the contrary, usually has nothing to do with chocolate or cocoa. The aroma is completely berry and sweet.
The strain slowly starts to affect your head and moves down your body. The head effects are well-balanced and bring you relief and relaxation. However, Chocolate Rain may influence your body too much, so be careful with the dose. Be ready for a movie marathon in case you have an indica-dominant strain. If you have acquired a sativa phenotype, the high will be uplifting and cheerful.
The potency of this herb may not be the highest available in the market, but the strain is pretty strong. The THC level may reach up to 20 percent.
Medical UseLike many other cannabis strains, Chocolate Rain is a good remedy for pain relief. Depression and stress will not creep up on you either. However, its most evident medical benefits appear when you are going to bed. The strain is exceptionally good for people with insomnia. Whether the high knocks you out immediately or just wears off after an intensive energy boost, you will have a long, sound sleep.
