Review: This indica-dominant hybrid of unknown origin and descent was a little dry when breaking it up, which made me expect that the smoke itself would be a bit harsh. Instead, it is a smooth, easy smoke with a rich taste, which makes it particularly easy to take a few hits in quick succession, especially considering that the effects do not come on quickly. When they do creep up on you, they continue to do so in a way that continues to amplify for a good stretch of time. About the time you expect the high to start calming down, it continues through another elevation gain, but once it reaches maximum altitude, begins to taper off quickly. Though reportedly an indica hybrid, the effects for me were more like a sativa through the duration, which made for a better daytime than nighttime smoke for me.
Cannabis effects vary wildly from patient to patient based on a multitude of factors, including THC tolerance, brain chemistry and personal taste. This review is based on the subjective experience of one patient.
