Chocolate Thai (ston3rf4g)
With his first submitted review, Marijuana Reviews member ston3rf4g comes through with some bud that I am looking to forward to reading about. The fabled Chocolate Thai. Here is the message he sent with the review:
"After reading about a previous review about the strain "Thai" I decided I had to do the strain some justice. I had a rare but successful pickup of an eighth of Chocolate Thai in New York suburbs (Westchester county) earlier in the fall of 2008. Although rumors that this strain is nearly extinct (as well as many other rumors of other strains such as ATF which is currently being sold in several medical clubs), I’m fairly sure that the batch I received was legitimate.
The story of how Chocolate Thai came to be was that the weed was grown around coffee and chocolate plants and therefore adapted the smell, taste, and look."
From: Private Dealer
Looks: Full dense nugs. Very dark brown buds with red hairs and crystals on the bud (was NOT just some brown dirt weed).
Taste: Tasted like chocolate/coffee. Real thick and heavy taste to the smoke, but smooth.
High: Strong head high. Not a creeper but a distinct gradual high that did not kick you in the face. The high was slightly cloudy and confusing.
Overall: Chocolate Thai was definitely an experience and I was lucky to come by a batch of it. The high was unique as well as the taste and the bud itself. It’s a great bud to try, but overall, I think it’s more of a novelty bud than anything else. It was cool and all but there are much better and more effective strains out there with more favorable highs. I feel as if this is one of those strains that gets over-hyped from the name, rumors, and uniqueness of the bud, but it really is not all that great. –ston3rf4g
I have to agree that it seems that Chocolate Thai is more of a myth than a reality. I mean it is around, but the days of dark brown spears dripping with resin, tied to a hemp stick with a piece of hemp string are gone. –Chubbs
