Disclaimer: newbie smoker, here. I pay attention to every little nuance. :) This came as a house pre-roll which I broke down and packed into a bowl for my bong. The hit was barely noticeable as far as any harshness, and the effects settled in after about 5 minutes. Mostly felt them at eye level, but as the effects settled more, the sort of tingly feeling migrated down to my nose and lips, and stayed. No paranoia, no weirdness, no couchlock. Just a nice sort of tingly, relaxed high.
