3. Chocolope

Chocolope is a Sativa cannabis that was created after crossing Chocolate Thai and Cannalope Haze. The Sativa flowers give you a sweet earthy coffee taste which creates a dreamy effect. Users report becoming very cheerful and euphoric after smoking Chocolope. We highly recommend it for users who love sweet and unique cannabis strains.


Chocolope is a strain that is very easy to grow and therefore suitable for beginners who can achieve surprising yields of up to 500-600 gr / m2 at harvest. It produces compact, heavy and resinous buds. We recommend controlling the size, otherwise, it will take over your growing space. Chocolope tends to develop several side branches with few leaves, so it is recommended to give them some kind of support, like a net or bamboo canes because of the weight of the buds. If you’re planning to grow it in a growing room, you should know that Chocolope is great for growing in SCROG (Screen of Green).

This 95% Sativa-dominant strain finishes flowering between 8-9 weeks. Don’t rush her; cannabis plants need their time to develop all the necessary cannabinoids and terpenes that will please all your senses.
