Chocolate OG – Kootenay Labs Shatter – INDICA 1g
Chocolate OG, sometimes mistakenly referred to as Chocolope, is a pure-indica strain (sativa/indica ratio of 0:100) with unknown parentage, though presumably, OG Kush is in the picture somewhere. Chocolate OG might also share lineage with other “chocolate” strains, or its name may simply refer to its dark appearance. This strain’s predominately physical high testifies to its pure indica heritage, delivering a potent body buzz with psychoactive effects and a powerful case of the munchies. This makes Chocolate ideal for treating lack of appetite and unhealthy weight loss. It’s also effective against chronic pain. This strain is known to be quite strong, but exact details about its THC content aren’t widely available. The same is true of the CBD levels in Chocolate OG, which means the strain probably shouldn’t be used as primary treatment for conditions that respond to CBD, such as seizure disorders. This strain has a strong, Skunky aroma and flavor, while the bud is dark green with brown hairs, dense nugs, and a frosty layer of trichome crystals. Side effects may include dry mouth, dry eyes, and paranoia, while dizziness and headaches are also possible. It’s probably easiest to find Chocolate OG on the West Coast and in Colorado, but it’s uncommon even there.
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality. The consistency and texture of oil come down to different factors entirely.
The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules. Which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Cannabis Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
