This didn't smell like Cheese or any of the "Sweet" strains I've tried. Just smelled vaguely diesel-ish, but I smoke a lot of Diesel so there's that. I had not smoked anything for four hours before trying this.
Buds were light green and soft, spongy, and slightly crunchy. Ground up ok, nice and gooey, into the bowl.
Thick smoke, a bit like paint thinner(!) at the start, but my pipe is wood and OLD (an old ganja pipe from a trip to India). Nice creepy start, feel it in my shoulders spreading out, definitely indica dominant here. But a very noticeable head buzz like Headband, or P. Express. Feel it right around my temples, moving, and pulsing. Cool!
Ash doesn't compact easy on it's own. Compact it too much yourself and it slows air flow significantly. Also it looked bass a** in my perc.
The buds do not look too resinous (about average), but they were packed with plenty THC and CBD, trust me. TONS of little orange hairs everywhere. Acquired from Green Acres Medical in Yucca Valley, CA.
