Pain management has always been tricky for me. Ive tried very strong strains and could not get over how lazy I felt. The pain was gone but so was my motivation. In the right quantaties this weed will ease your pain but you will still be able to function properly.

22% THC is the perfect amount for me. I have been smoking for a while and will never say no to a new blunt. I have found this cannabis to be very helpful with afternoon slumps. Your body will relax but your mind will be alive.
