Effects: The high is the real selling point, and it can be part of a balanced breakfast, a mid-day pick-me-up or an evening toke that won’t keep me awake at night. Daily tasks and conversations go on without my becoming aloof or paranoid, and pushing through the munchies was easy when I had something to focus on. Medical patients have used Koko Puffs for mental anguish, headaches, glaucoma and sleeping disorders.

Flavor: Although mostly comprising OG and Blackberry genetics, Koko Puffs has a very tart, rubbery smoke and heavy floral notes on the back end. There are some sweet berry overtones, though, which are also present in the aftertaste.
Koko Puffs is the offspring of Kimbo Kush and Triple OG. You’d think a strain with such street-hardened parents would have a tougher name, but maybe they just wanted a better life for their child. To be fair, Koko Puffs is also a lot softer on the mind than its mother or father, keeping me easygoing and even-keeled after each session. But after several experiences with the strain, I was still wondering if I’d ever come close to going cuckoo for the flavor.
Crunch Berry, Frankenberry, Fruit Loops and Fruity Pebbles OG have all been sweet on the nose, but Koko Puffs could’ve gone either way during our first meeting at a dispensary. I wasn’t sure if the “Puffs” part was the inspiration or if we had another Chocolope or Chocolate Mint OG — two delicious strains — on our hands. Either way, the thick layer of resin clinging to the inside of the display jar sold me.
Looks: Koko Puffs comes packaged in round, compact calyxes with a murky cloak of resin covering the bushy buds. Regular spots of bright purple make the strain’s evergreen color hard to notice under the trichomes, which can be very abundant.

Smell: Koko Puffs starts out sour and slightly gassy and has a strong floral ending, but there are some subtleties that provide a little sweetness to the mix. Grainy, nutty notes and small hints of berry help Koko Puffs smell like a damp forest floor in the summertime.
