I'm a beginner smoker and hoo boy was this strain nothing like I've tried lol. Wasn't sure if I was going crazy or my vision started to get impaired. Blurry, seeing double/triple, fuzziness. Almost felt like a hallucinogen at times. My heart beat was pounding like crazy. Paranoia was as usual. I'd say it's definitely intense for someone like me who is new but I do recommend. Besides the cons it's a very interesting feeling!
