I know everyone thinks this is the everything of strains but for me its a strong pass. Anything that results in sore throats and excessive dry mouth ends up being too much for me. If anyone can get past that one thing or find a way to get use to it then by all means go ahead and pick this baby up.

Should've told me I'd get that much relaxed. I may took some Horchata infused gummies before going across town to my friends place and I ended up listening to music and forgetting my stop. I had to take a taxi back but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Its been a long time since I felt that calm.

I find the excessive THC to be awful. thought that this would be different but it really wasn't.

This must be that balanced weed I keep hearing about. See, normally i either get happy and out of this world jovial or I just concentrate on whatever I was doing. During group, I ende dup managing to have a mix of both. I was focused when needed then when we were making fun I was totally involved.
