Not that many strains can equally deal with pain as well as mood issues. NWYC is different. I am a living testimony that smoking one or two buds instead of popping anti-depressants is way better. Less grogginess and there is a very small chance that you will have a heavy tongue afterwards. Dry mouth maybe, heavy tongue nope.

Didn't think a marijuana overdose was a thing till I smoked several blunts of this bad boy. I was feeling dizzy and seeing funny things on the wall. Next time i am sticking to a single a few puffs in one sitting because I do not want to feel that crappy again. especially not with a strain that is as good as this one.
