Purchased On: 08/10/20178
Packaged On: 07/02/2018 ***A 1-gram Boveda 2-way Humidity pack was included in the glass jar, which is the perfect size packs for 1/8s. I think the 4-gram size packs provide too much moisture for 1/8s. I also prefer the 58%.

Phenotype Profile: These magnificent, chunky flowers were neon light greens with lots of copper pistils and dipped in trichomes. I used natural light for the photo, so the colors are softer and the trichs less apparent than I've described. If you get a fresh batch like the one I got for this review, it is some stick-to-the-wall bud.
Bud Density: 4.5 [1-5]

This flower’s terps are off the hook. In their intact state, these buds scream of dank, skunky bitter/sweet limes. When I first tried it, I did not grind it. I just took a small piece the size of a pinky nail and I got 8-10 hits off it. The flavor did not die after the first hit. Instead, I got a powerfully tasty hit until it was ash. Once ground, this flower opens up even more with a sweetness coming from the katsu bubba kush. When smoked, it’s like eating a bitter/sweet key lime with earthy, sweet notes. The tart lime coats the palate and lingers forever. And, the more hits you take, the more the flavor builds in intensity and complexity. This terp profile is a perfect balance of insane lime citrus while still sharing the stage with those other subtle, inherent cannabis flavors.

Effects: Wonderful cascades of steady euphoria with a moderately-intense body melt. For some, this set of effects will work as a daytime Indica, while for others it’s perfect for total chilling. Lots of wide-ranging, medicinal potential, too.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and cervical pain. May also help with a wide range of pain management, depression, sleep, anxiety, panic, PTSD, appetite (and more)
I rank this strain in the top 25 strains I’ve ever smoked in my life, and I’ve been enjoying ganja for 36 years. This flower easily deserves my 5-plus rating, which I’ve bestowed on less than 8 products out of 217 reviews. In my humble opinion, this is Cannabis Cup winning quality. Sure, some will disagree; but for me, this flower is the perfect package in every characteristic that I assess.
