For what it lacks in THC, landing at a moderate 9%, it makes up for in its 1:1 ratio of CBD. These small, pebble-shaped buds give off a stellar high that is both relaxing and uplifting in their effects.

Beautiful aromas of lavender and earth fill the room as you break the little forest green nugs apart.
The physical effects of this strain are mild, giving a pleasant high without an abundance of side effects that can sometimes get in the way.

Stress and depression can often lead to restless sleep, cramps, muscle soreness, and a slew of other symptoms.
