  1. Delicious strain. This is one of the best to grow in my opinion. There is no mistaking the smell of this in your garden as it gives off an aroma almost like cookies in an oven. The taste is really smooth and you catch the doughy batter flavour with each drag. The buzz is a great combo with a super relaxed yet giggly feeling.
