what i look for in a joint is its ability to make me feel relaxed and high at the same time. Gary Parton PASSED the test. The high was euphoric, almost immediately after my hit. Then as time wen on it spread all over the body and i found myself excitedly relaxed. The kids tell me I was on the front porch smiling and watering the plants and when that was done I just sat down and started looking at my plant babies.

for all the sweet tooth peeps out there, this is what you ahve been looking for. whether you have it in a bong or as a joint, it burns with a sweet and aromatic taste smelling like berries and pine. Also, the aftertaste is just as sweet. There is the chance of getting cotton mouth but think about all the sweetness and piney freshness.

I think that some strains have way worse fatigue than Gary Parton. On a scale of 1-10 I would give the fatigue levels a solid 5 which for most stoners is negligent. The high is super funked out to the point that the fatigue is not something you'll find yourself worrying about. PLus it comes way afterwards so there's not much to think about while the high is in place.

I found a seed in a pack of Gary Payton cookies. My mate popped it and it is now in week 12 of flowering and still not ready. So the advertised 45 to 60 days is inaccurate. Will update as soon as it's ready.
