The first thought to mind on my very first try of this strain was, that's tasty! A pew puffs later I was still tasting then it comes. The high. It took me immediately to relaxation and sudden mental clarity I expect from Pink Kush. Then a warm fuzzy sensation sweeps through me as I settled in for the buzz. I forgot I was in pain. I found joy and ease. Then I puffed some more and it was like a luxury car slipping into highway gear. No mental fatigue, no eye strain, no nagging pain. Settle into the seat and cruise.
