Thank you! Good job!
I highly recommend HulkBerry. It smells delicious and soooooo tasty! The effects are strong.. uplifting… energetic and creative. A perfect strain for chilling out with your friends!
Hey, guys! Indica or Sativa? What’s your cannabis preference?
I prefer Sativa as Indica makes me glued to the couch/bed/car seat or wherever the hell I am. I can't trust myself when I smoke Indica because I can fall asleep anywhere anytime. I think Indica is great for someone who struggles with chronic pain or insomnia. I honestly don't even remember the last time I smoked Indica. Sativa is always my go to strain. My favorite Sativa strains are Amherst Sour Diesel and Blue Dream. I prefer sativa strains because Sativa is a stimulant, and can cause appetite suppression, relieve depression, prevent migraines, chronic pain and nausea. I love how euphoric and energetic sativa makes me feel. It amplifies my creativity and just makes life more colorful!
I love Herbies! Thanks for a fast delivery and top quality seeds.
I like Jack Herer! An absolute joy to grow. Very nice buds and extremely tasty! I would definitely run this strain again. Next time I will grow Hulkberry, Blue Dream and Super Lemon Haze. Nice crops to you!
