What is the Apex Strain?

The Apex Strain is an excellent choice for anyone who needs to unwind, has appetite issues, requires profound relaxation, or suffers from chronic discomfort.

The Apex Strain comes from a long list of superstars and delivers large and chunky buds in a lovely, soothing minty tone that mellows when the pistols begin to darken. It balances in appearance thanks to its rich, thick coating of trichomes.
The Apex Strain is a fruity mix with hints of exotic mango and tropical pineapple that waft in gentle and enticing clouds that hint of pine forests, lavender fields, and fresh milled wood.
From the first toke you get a mix of flavors that are fruity mixed with an exotic hint of sweet spicy and yummy tones. Some claim a taste of sweet chocolate and others taste a note or two or rich tobacco.

Effects: how will the Apex make me feel?
The Apex Strain produces a full-body high with a tingly head and buzzy vibe that mellows you out as soon as the pleasure kicks in. Following the head rush, hunger kicks in quite rapidly. Don’t be astonished if you find yourself suddenly talkative, multilingual, and completely amused by the world around you. Laughter is a side effect, and even the most stoic can become giddy. The more you take, the calmer you become, until you find yourself in a sit-your-buttocks-down-and-stare-at-the-TV situation.
