Double dipped…. Chocolate Wafflez is a stylish Californian sativa (70% sativa / 30% indica) which has been baked with extra goodness thanks to the perfect ingredient mix of award winning Paradise and on-trend USA genetics.
It tastes damn fine and punches high above its weight too with a hefty THC count (+ 21%)! This strain is a sprinter for the finish line with a quicker finish time than many sativas, along with a harvest that will impress.

Difficulty Level: Medium
Indoors : At its core this strain is a big plant and for this reason it needs to be shown some respect, but also needs discipline in the grow room to keep it in check. A raging sativa, it will stretch and shoot for the light source if you neglect to keep an eye on it and for this reason it can’t be left in veg state for too long. In a restricted height grow space it will definitely need some training and restraining.
Outdoors : In an al fresco environment, with the sun and warmth to fuel it, this strain will do everything in its power to fulfil its big plant destiny! In Mediterranean and southern regions it will soar, while in northern regions it will chase the lesser light just the same, although cloud cover and grey skies will inevitably clip its big plant ambition a little. Nevertheless, it’s a vigorous climber and northern region growers will also appreciate good mold resistance qualities.

Germination and Vegetative Stage
Two seeds were germinated by pro grower, The Doc. After three days, the germination process had been completed in a quick and reliable manner, then it didn’t take long until the two seedlings got into their stride and displayed vigorous growth. With shade leaves whose fairly slender shape expressed the strain’s sativa dominant heritage. After three weeks of vegetative growth, they had evolved into well-branched plants with a compact frame and heights of 26 and 29 cm.
In the course of the first 4.5 weeks of flowering, the two Chocolate Wafflez were steeply climbing upwards until they had almost tripled in height. Whilst their branches grew to height, their flower formations grew to width, puffing up into fattish buds that exhibited more of an indica. It produced a heavy complex smell, on the one hand earthy, tart and dark, on the other hand also fruity sweet with a layer of dark chocolate.
The plants’ lateral branches, laden with solid, heavily crystalline buds from top to bottom, were forming an upside-down triangle with a thick head bud protruding from the middle of which. After a good nine weeks of flowering – 64 and 66 days –the two plants had fully matured.
Reported The Doc, “Chocolate Wafflez has that insane trichome richness typical of current Californian genetics, its buds are so extremely frosty that looking at them almost makes me freeze cold, this plant is such a heavenly white visual stunner!”
Final Chocolate Wafflez heights were 76cm and 90cm.
83 and 93 grams
Smell and Smoke Report
The buds’ very strong aroma, gently matured in big glass jars, now presented itself with an even more distinct basic note of dark chocolate, infused with a tartly sweet, slightly sour touch of fruit that was instantly reminiscent of blackcurrant to The Doc.
He placed half a gram of Chocolate Wafflez in his Mighty vaporizer and heated it up.
The initial flavour impression left on his palate by the first vapor cloud deeply inhaled was an expectedly bitter sweet, tart and spicy taste that really had something chocolatey to it. Nearly as fast as an express the effect rushed into his head, it took only one more puff to get a lively sativa kick going.
The Doc felt his temples tingle, then his view of the environment intensified thanks to enhanced visual perception. Chocolate Wafflez kind of boosted his brain and also lifted his mood significantly. Fuelled by four more vaporizer hits, that overall surge of energy lasted about 1.5 hours. Then the indica side of Chocolate Wafflez took charge, putting The Doc in a more calm and contemplative state of mind, and accompanied by nicely chilled physical relaxation, this was a very pleasant ending to his effect experience.
It’s the unusually delicious chocolate/cassis aroma and the fact this strain is a magnificent energising sativa pick-me-up also gives it therapeutic value for those in need – with a perfect grow room performance topping it all off.
