This pre-roll did emit a generic, pungent aroma in its unsmoked state. This strain is notorious for its aromas and flavors of lemon-lime, syrupy sweetness and sour candy. I’m happy to report that the joint did express this profile. This pre-roll did indeed taste noticeably of lemon-lime sour candy and sugary sweetness, though the flavors were somewhat subdued, which is very acceptable for a pre-rolled joint.

Effects (after smoking 1/2): A quality, classic body stone with a heady sophistication to it. Steadily unwinds the mind and body from head-to-toe. It’s like a wonderful blanket of euphoria. Has the potential for couch lock at higher dosages. It’s a slight creeper, too.
Duration of Effects: 1.5 hours
Freshness: For this reviewer, the key quality indicators for a pre-roll are flavor and potency, which for an experienced user can indicate freshness and quality of the plant material used. Because the flavors were still alive and well and the potency was on the mark, this joint passed the material quality fresh test.
May Help With: stress, depression, anxiety, body pain, muscle spasms, some forms of nerve pain, insomnia, appetite, cancer treatment side effects, fibromyalgia, PTSD (and more)
Within the context of a pre-roll, this was an excellent example. When buying pre-rolls it's all about the freshness.
