Leafly Reviewer r........t says It has a good berry flavor and has an immediate head high. When the body high kicks in, my head, shoulders, arms, and legs start tingling. A heaviness all over. As the high wears off, it leaves you with a nice almost sativa head high. Reality feels fuzzy and strange at high doses.
