oh my, I smoked a pre-roll and I was glad I did so during the day when I had company. My eyes were bloodshot and I was dehydrated. I could not stand on my feets. Everything was ridiculously slow and I began to panic which led to an increase in my blood pressure. urgh, i dont want to remember it.

I got this in a vape and good lord, this is a fast acting skunk. It leaves you feeling euphoric and heavy. you kinda disassociate from reality. You become creative and think about things from different perspectives. you cant act on any of these ideas cos you are completely aat ease with where you are. it is great for dealing with chronic pain.

I think the skunky undernote gives it a kind of pecularity. Although this skunk is similar to the black widow, I love the skunk. I am not sure if it’s the exotic fruity flavor or the sweet aftertaste that has pipqued my interest but all I know is, I loooovvveee it.
