The mother is from the exact same seed stock that produced the mother of the Blue Satellite; this mother being large with some variegation and lavender/blue hues–especially on the undersides of dark leaves on an asymmetric plant often with no discernable main-stem and long side-branches–reminiscent of the original Chocolate Thai both structurally and experientially).
This Cocoa Kush quasi-hybrid grows medium-height with short nodes, large, dark-green foliage, thick-yet-sturdy hollow stems and tight-yet-elongated buds of swollen calyx/bract flowers completely coated in large, clear trichome of superior aromatics.
Flower time is approx. 55–60 days, with the more interesting oils developing in the very last week.
DJ Short's Cocoa Kush possesses a complex-yet-subtle palate of a nutty/licorice/chocolate/tobacco blend with a creamy/floral/fruity background. The experience of the finished product is of top-shelf quality; smooth, yet a bit more intense, `take-your-breath-away` (almost overpowering) initial experience that mellows finally to a sleepy/dreamy finish.
Upon final testing, a few individual plants from the Cocoa Kush provided an experience and structural aesthetic very similar to the Blue Velvet; i.e. dense, large calyx, lavender foxtail buds that produce a very exciting-yet-sedate experience.
Approximately 15% of the plants from this line will sport variegated growth patterns. The other 85% will grow uniform plants with slight variation in height.
