When I read about this strain on Leafly, I had high hopes for it. Then I tried it and was severely disappointed. I didnt like the pungent aroma, the taste was strange, and it wasnt potent enough for me. Some people might like this, but Im not a fan.

Another amazing strain that offers cerebral effects, which are insanely high. It warmed me up, gave me a buzz, and helped me relax. Smoking this eased my pain while removing my fatigue and migraines. It offers long-lasting effects, which is a huge plus for me too.

Smoking Candy Cane pre-rolls of this strain is suitable for experienced and novice users alike. As an experienced user, I enjoyed the effects. My wife (a novice) enjoyed it too. We felt upbeat, energized, and uplifted after sharing this weed with each other. Then we enjoyed each other in bed after...

Sadly, I experience panic attacks after smoking this. And I had such high hopes!! Cotton mouth and dry eyes would have been easy to deal with but not panic attacks. Also, I felt extremely hungry after the effects of just a few hits wore off.
