high is heavy and uncertain. This feeling of confusing excitement and the desire to just go to sleep. I don’t know what to say, I think I haven’t tasted it to the fullest. I want to try it again as edible so I can experience the whole range of effects

growing Cookies Kush turned out to be pretty easy. The main thing is to occasionally cut the branches so that the light hits the plant evenly. And you will definitely need fertilizers, I used half of the required dose, and it was more than enough.

It really is an uncomfortable thing. I experienced quite painful sensations along with great drowsiness. Is that OK? After a while, I felt relief, but then paranoia came to me... I could get rid of it and was in a state of panic for at least 2 hours...
