One you exhale you will appreciate some piney and spicy tones that make the smoke smooth. The taste of lemon may linger after the exhale.
The buds of this strain are a deep green and are coated with a rich of trichomes, speaking well for the potency that they convey. As the plants mature, the resinous glands take a dense milky-white color that makes the buds even more beautiful. Delicate and wispy pistils are the icing on the cake.

Being a strong indica, expect to feel your body warm and get relaxed after a few puffs. Your muscle aches will melt away as the effects spread down your torso. Eventually, you will fall asleep since this strain has sedating effects.
