Koko Puffs: Why Colorado Tokers Really like This Strain


Baked goods are all the rage amongst breeders attempting to come up with new names for their fruity, doughy strains, but there are only so a lot of cookies, cakes and pies that society recognizes. Now cereals are the new frontier for sugar-obsessed tokers attempting to reconnect with their childhoods. And for the most portion, these strains are fairly darn tasty — in addition to Fortunate Charms, which was an overrated cereal anyway.

Crunch Berry, Frankenberry, Fruit Loops and Fruity Pebbles OG have all been sweet on the nose, but Koko Puffs could’ve gone either way for the duration of our initially meeting at a dispensary. I wasn’t positive if the “Puffs” portion was the inspiration or if we had yet another Chocolope or Chocolate Mint OG — two scrumptious strains — on our hands. Either way, the thick layer of resin clinging to the inside of the show jar sold me.

Koko Puffs is the offspring of Kimbo Kush and Triple OG. You’d consider a strain with such street-hardened parents would have a tougher name, but perhaps they just wanted a superior life for their youngster. To be fair, Koko Puffs is also a lot softer on the thoughts than its mother or father, maintaining me easygoing and even-keeled following every single session. But following numerous experiences with the strain, I was nonetheless asking yourself if I’d ever come close to going cuckoo for the flavor.

There’s practically nothing undesirable or unpleasant about Koko Puff’s floral, rubbery smoke — but there’s truly practically nothing chocolaty or creamy about it, either. There are some nutty and sweet berry elements to the strain’s flavor, nonetheless, and the higher is so exciting-loving that no one’s going to give a shit about the name anyway. I commonly attempt to confront life’s difficulties, but it’d be tough to care a lot about them if I smoked Koko Puffs just about every day. If I did, I’d possibly finish up on a beach someplace, falling asleep in the sand with out a be concerned in the globe.

Koko Puffs is a wholesale strain with a developing profile in Colorado, so some dispensaries could incredibly nicely be developing it internally. So far, we’ve spotted the strain on the street and in seeds on line, whilst a tiny but developing quantity of dispensaries sell it, also.

Appears: Koko Puffs comes packaged in round, compact calyxes with a murky cloak of resin covering the bushy buds. Frequent spots of vibrant purple make the strain’s evergreen colour tough to notice below the trichomes, which can be incredibly abundant.

Smell: Koko Puffs begins out sour and slightly gassy and has a powerful floral ending, but there are some subtleties that offer a small sweetness to the mix. Grainy, nutty notes and tiny hints of berry enable Koko Puffs smell like a damp forest floor in the summertime.

Flavor: While largely comprising OG and Blackberry genetics, Koko Puffs has a incredibly tart, rubbery smoke and heavy floral notes on the back finish. There are some sweet berry overtones, although, which are also present in the aftertaste.

Effects: The higher is the actual promoting point, and it can be portion of a balanced breakfast, a mid-day choose-me-up or an evening toke that will not preserve me awake at evening. Day-to-day tasks and conversations go on with out my becoming aloof or paranoid, and pushing by way of the munchies was simple when I had a thing to concentrate on. Healthcare sufferers have utilised Koko Puffs for mental anguish, headaches, glaucoma and sleeping problems.

Dwelling grower’s take: “I consider this was retired by its breeder [Exotic Genetix], but if you can acquire it in dispensaries now, then perhaps you can come across clones of it someplace. I got my seeds on line, and only 3 of the six ended up creating it, but that is portion of the exciting of shady seed banks. Nothing at all weird in the develop — fairly simple — and it went from seed to harvest in significantly less than 3 months, which is not undesirable.”
