As soon as you smoke it, you will get “cottonmouth” effects, dry and red eyes and a bit of dizziness in case you have not eaten anything prior to the consumption. Alternatively, you may feel a bit of paranoia and anxiety if you smoke too much or you are not an experienced toker who had not encountered pure Sativa breeds.
Citrus/pineapple aroma is present from the moment you see it and the whole room will smell of pineapple once you pull it out of the zip bag.

Info for Growers
Being the tall Sativa, growers do love this strain as it gives a good yield, great effects, and it is not hard to grow as long as you give it enough light, soil, and nutrients. They also stress out that it requires regular adding of fertilizers, probably due to accommodation to the volcanic soul where these usually grow.
The best way to grow it is outdoors, as it is the outdoor strain that loves moisture, breeze, rain and hot temperatures. However, take into consideration the fact that this is a tropical Sativa that can flower up to 12 weeks, so if you are living in the northern hemisphere, it is not likely that you will make it to the end. However, indoor grow is a much better choice. To secure a lot of water, rich soil with pots of around 30liters of the ground as it will grow tall. Also, it is highly recommended to use 600wat HPS light for the best results!
