Not a "Happy" experience, at all. I was told by a bud tender that this would help with depression and anxiety. It did, it helped it get MUCH worse. This bud has some very dark places hidden in it pretty little purple tricomes.

Not a very good dope on wikileaf collection. I found it rather overwhelming than curing the tension. It doesnt make you exceptionally happy so dont keep hopes high.
