Effects, Side Effects, and Medical Uses

The effects of this cannabis come on quite quickly. It brings on a strong head high that makes consumers feel creative and energized. There is also a sense of inspiration and motivation that comes through. However, the body slowly starts to feel relaxed, which can sometimes lead to a sense of sedation. Too much of this it may leave you glued to the couch. The best time to consume it, therefore, is in the evening. For beginners, it might be better to take small doses of this strain and slowly get used to the effects.

As far as side effects go, you may feel some paranoia and even hallucinations on top of the usual dryness of the eyes and thirst. If you are a medical marijuana patient, you may use this marijuana to treat issues like anxiety, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and inflammation.

motivation-wise, this is the nug for you. pop it in your bong, light it up and inhale the MJ goodness. The high comes on a few minutes after and boy don't you get active and creative. You'll be fending off ideas left right and center. And it lasts a while.

I have found Pai Gow to be one great for collecting hash and pollens. After a months use I am able to make my own tiny hash balls that i light up in my bong when I am trying to avoid the cannabis high. The orange and brown specks on the bud must carry a bunch of trichomes. I feel everyone should know this.

Some stners feel beginners should ease into it but i think they should start with such weed. Not only is it slightly mild but it has a range of health benefits. Take it from me, this was one of my firsts joints and it wasn't as bad as everyone said it would be. i didn't even get a headache the next day. I was simply calm.

Ideal for tight spaces cause the full length isn't as towering as other plants

I don't see why people even like this balanced hybrid. If you ask me it has way more of the indica than is right for me. Why i say so is because there was this one time I smoked a whole joint in two sittings an hour apart and i ended up spending the whole day in bed. I just felt like kicking it and having a lazy day. It was relaxing but not what I was going for.
