My sample of Sour Sunset has 23% THC and less than 1% CBD, very soothing and sedating hybrid

Write your reply

Im a terpene selective, and Sour Sunset seems to carry the best of them - myrcene, terpinolene, limonene, etc. It is a hybrid but it acts more of a sedative than a stimulant. It tends to creep so smoke it with caution.
