    This strain relaxes me but also, ironically, stresses me out. I don’t become paranoid but I do begin thinking about things that make my mind anxious. But sitting still with this strain is difficult. Its weird because I know it is used for anxiety but it mostly triggers mine. I do however sleep better in it so I smoke it right before I go to bed.

    When I opened the container I noticed the minty aroma. It smelled so good. I smoked some in a pipe and that effects are so calming and sedative that I was compelled to write this review. Thank You Canada! I love smoking this historic strain!
