Chocolate Mint OG manages to combine the delicious flavours of chocolate and mint in one marijuana package! It was created by crossing an Emerald OG with a Grandaddy Purple. This is an indica-dominant strain with 80% indica genetics.
Chocolate Mint OG develops lovely shades of blue and purple during flowering with lower night temperatures. The early vegetative growth is incredibly vigorous and so if space is at a premium indoors it is advisable not to veg. for too long. Once into flowering some training will definitely be necessary to support the weight of the buds on its long branches. The inter-nodal bud-site spacing is quite long and so this allows for good light penetration into the inner buds.
Grown indoors harvests yield between 350 - 500 gr/m2 in a flowering time of 58 - 63 days. Outdoors these plants can grow to 3 or 4 meters in height and yield between 1 and 2 kilos each dried weight. The flavour and aroma is very deep and rich; chocolate, mint, pine, spices with some acidity present too. THC production is very high and falls within the range 22% - 26% with low 0.1% CBD. The effect is very, very powerful and is not recommended for novices. It is both physical and cerebral and long-lasting. It is definiteley a night-time smoke unless free from all cares and duties for the day!

About Humboldt Seeds
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
