This flower is so loose and long, it looks like a sativa strain.  It's a Chocolate Chunk, which is a pure Indica strain.  At least they call it Olympic CC and I've never seen any other strain referred to as CC.  The front label shows (Hybrid 70% S) which seems like it's saying S for sativa?  I'm not sure but even if this is a Chocolate Chunk, it's Olympic Chocolate Chunk and it's pretty much labelled a Sativa, and this looks so much like a sativa - that's what I'm going with.  Sativa-dominant Hybrid.

There are very long, very orange hairs everywhere on this beautiful marijuana.  It's colored neon green with darker edges, and a fair amount of crystals all over.  Under the sugar leaves that remained were massive deposits of beautiful trichromes.

Even the smell of this pot is sativa.  It smells very diesel and piney.  There are strong tree-fruit tones throughout, hits of ripe pear or a fuji apple's sweetness.  This is pungent.  Breaking it up spreads the smell everywhere, almost tangible clouds of pine dank.

Smoking this is very piney, with those tree fruit notes everywhere in the hit.  On the exhale the diesel-sweet you could smell is now thick in the middle palate and stuck deep on a nasal exhale.

My mood was uplifted and I got happy fast.  The high lasted quite a while and throughout it I felt very dumb.  I was forgetful and kept putting things down, then finding them somewhere weird.  I forgot my phone in the car, so I went to get it.  When I got there, I forgot what I was after so I returned inside.  A few minutes later I realized that I had left both my phone and my iPod touch that time.

Overall, a good tasting marijuana, but I think maybe they should reassess the straining and naming, in my opinion.
