Mochi weed is a cross of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. It is an indica-dominant hybrid known for its sweet scent and taste, not to mention its potency. The strain occasionally goes by nicknames such as Mochi Gelato, and Gelato 47, and is yet another example of the joy brought to weed lovers by the GSC family.
Incidentally, Mochi was created by The Cookiefam, a company consisting of three talented breeders: Sherbinski, Jigga, and Flux. Cookiefam released GSC, and it became one of the most popular strains of all time. No one thought the collective could improve, but by combining the best traits of two wonderful strains, Cookiefam once again created a masterpiece.
Mochi is incredibly fragrant, and the fruity and sweet smell is a wonderful thing to experience. In fact, when you burn this weed, it could be mistaken for an incense candle by someone who doesn’t know marijuana from a hole in the ground. In our introduction, we forgot to mention that there is also a Mochi Gelato dessert in Japan, and this strain smells just like it.
Mochi tastes similarly to how it smells. Whether you are inhaling or exhaling, it will feel as if you are enjoying a fruit cocktail or another tropical dessert. You will find it very hard to put this cannabis down! On the inhale, you get sweet, tangy, and creamy notes. On the exhale, you get hints of peppermint, earth, and lavender.
This strain is known for producing a strong purple coloring in patches while the bud is coated with glistening trichomes around harvest time. It is one of the most beautiful marijuana strains you are likely to see. One look at a mature Mochi plant and you know it is a potent strain. Once you break up the resinous nugs, you will find that they fall apart evenly, making them ideal for joint rolling.
THC Content – Highest Test
On average, the THC content of Mochi is around 21%, but we have heard of cuts with a measured THC level of up to 29%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
Mochi contains minimal CBD, although some cuts could have up to 0.5%.
What Can I Expect When I Use Mochi Weed?
When you get high on Mochi, you can expect to experience a feeling of unbridled bliss thanks to the high level of THC and terpenes. While this strain has a significant impact on your body, your mind remains clear enough for you to get things done if necessary. Eventually, you feel completely relaxed, free from the stresses of the world. If you use a large dose of Mochi, you may get the munchies and find it difficult to fight sleep as the body high becomes too strong to resist.
Medical Benefits of Mochi Marijuana
Mochi is a popular medical strain. Its potency means you can use it to combat the chronic pain that’s a symptom of conditions such as fibromyalgia. It could also prove useful if you have insomnia, depression, stress, anxiety, or fatigue. While you can use it in moderation during the day, you can get a good night’s sleep by using a larger dose in the late evening.
Possible Side Effects of Mochi Weed
As is always the case with extremely strong marijuana strains, Mochi could cause dizziness and headaches, along with dry eyes. By the way, don’t use a large amount during the day if you’re still at work. Once the initial creative spark wears off, you will find your body becoming very heavy indeed.
