    Sour Tangerine! I just discovered this strain,quite by accident, as my dispensary was out if Sour D, so I elected to try Sour T! Very uplifting and positive, with absolutely no anxiety or paranoia! Fairly high thc levels ,clocking in at 23.3%, so be careful! This is my new go-to strain! Happy 4th!

    Before my demise it would be wonderful (a dream) to be where it’s legal to enjoy these strains. And know that they’re safe products. Not some Dirty Dick Paraquat Dirt weed. Or Space Dust?
