This one is a nice smooth smoke for me. Sometimes it creeps in and hits hard. Sometimes it hits immediately and rides smooth. It depends how long I go between smoking of course, but when I get home from work after not smoking, it hits hard. I believe it to smoothen out very quickly no matter what though, so do not be too alarmed by that detail. I am never too high or too low on this one, if that makes sense. I think it is a great strain for someone who does not want an overwhelming psychoactive effect, but wants that nice smooth residual relief from pain, anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, etc. Would highly recommend.
