Phenotype Profile: 
This sample consisted of super dense, compact medium green colored buds with dark green sugar leaves and tight, orange pistils. The bud structure was very compact can be deceptively underwhelming until you take a close look. Then you’ll notice that these little nugs stick to your fingers and just might unleash some serious dankness. 
      Bud Density: 5   [1-5]

NOTE: This batch was very fresh. “Manufactured” in late September and packaged just a few days before I purchased it.

Terpene Profile:
In its intact state, the buds emit aromas of fuel, pine and sweet earth. Once ground, you’re bombarded with heavy fuel, sourness and earth. When smoked, it tasted sweet and sour with fruity and floral notes. This stuff is very sticky and burns forever. And if you don’t grind it, it really does burn forever.

TIPTo learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page. 

One powerfully euphoric and long-lasting experience. Makes the body tranquil and the mind float. It's a combo of heavy Kush relaxation you might expect from an OG Kush along with a heady component.

Duration of Effects:
2+ hours   

May Help With
: Helped with stress and sleep. May also help with mood, depression, muscle relaxation, appetite (and more)

A great offering with some exceptional qualities.
