I found this strain in a 30.46% THC, 0% CBD and 2.95% Terpenes. For the novice smoker, this has a potent effect in that it is good for a one-hitter, but that's really all most people are going need for a few hours. I found it to be quite sexually arousing in a way similar to Strawberry Kush, without the sedating effects of a pure Indica, most likely due to it causing a large dump of cortisol and converted to testosterone. For that reason, I'd keep this away from anyone with an Addison's disease or a similar biological state, because it can induce paranoia, tachycardia, and hypoglycemia - particularly more so in terms of larger doses. Other than that, This is a good novelty strain of sorts for once-in-a-while, but it isn't really a "go to" for me.

Haven't smoked it yet but the plant is 12 feet tall and topped with colas like a candelabra. Jelly Rancher is growing two feet away under its lower branches at five feet and 30% THC.

Nice sweet aroma, I really like this light shade of earthiness on exhalation .. This is mainly why I smoke this weed. Sometimes it helps a lot with back pain and migraines, but don’t overdo it, otherwise you will get your migraine back =)
