Chocolate Chunk Strain Review
The 420 community has a variety of delicious cannabis to choose from and enjoy.

Chocolate Chunk, on the other hand, sets itself apart by combining the universally loved smell and taste of its namesake and leave users in delightful bliss.

In a nutshell, this strain is an ideal starter regardless if it is for recreational or medical purposes. It does not overwhelm people with devastating effects. And, one more thing. On its name alluding to chunkiness, home growers should delight in its thick, dense buds.

One whiff of the tantalizing aroma of dark chocolate is all it takes to give in to the craving. And, accentuated by notes of hash and coffee; the will to resist disintegrates. Further adding to the complex flavor profile is a subtle hint of earthy musk.

The numbing sensation that hits quite quickly overruns the mind and the body with pervading warmth and calmness. Sleep eventually comes after a while. Before that, though, the tranquility setting in puts people in sluggish awareness with a dreamy quality.
Although it induces a subtle euphoric mental stimulation early on, Chocolate Chunk is best used in the late afternoon, or on a lazy day.
While it’s hard to turn down chocolates, developing allergic reactions to it is unavoidable. It’s tempting to ignore that and smoke more than what one can handle, but too much can make the effects of cottonmouth and dry eyes more pronounced. It could also induce a mild dizziness too especially among the less experienced users.
When overindulging, some other conditions that might occur includes elevated anxiety level. For that reason, people who are susceptible should be mindful of the dosage.

Visiting a doctor is unsettling. Hence, many have turned to using cannabis. Still, self-medication or treatment of any form is discouraged. At any rate, that does not mitigate the medical benefits that Chocolate Chunk could provide.
Its anti-inflammatory properties are beneficial as an alternative to analgesics, for example. As such, it has the ability to aid people suffering from mild pains as well as headaches and migraines.
Chocolate Chunk never fails to put a smile as it uplifts the mood. Thus, it could also offer short-term relief from mental conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Growing Chocolate Chunk
A treat that is easily accessible to all, growers should delight in knowing that it is relatively easy to cultivate. Chocolate Chunk thrives in indoor and outdoor settings, so long as the environment is conducive and optimal to its growth.
Inheriting a typical Indica structure, this plant tends to grow short and bushy. As such, it requires regular trimming of the large fan leaves. Doing so allows light to reach the lower branches. Furthermore, it lets fresh air circulate. Not only does it improve the flavor and potency, but it also prevents the growth of destructive molds and mildew.
Ideally, growers should apply the Sea of Green training method with Chocolate Chunk. The flowering time takes about 8 to 9 weeks. Once ready for harvest, each square meter could yield some 300 to 400 grams of buds.
Growing it outdoors, on the other hand, results in a yield of some 400 grams per plant. Its best environment is one that is warm. Harvest time in the northern hemisphere typically falls in the third week of October.
