I think I finally found a new star! This stuff is relaxing and intoxicating and makes me feel euphoric, energetic, and aroused. It has more energy than I was expecting from an Indica! It has a great taste, more like a sweet pine. It is ideal for insomnia and stress and is more of a veteran strain. Awesome stuff!
