I bought this weed again, and this is an update to the original review.

These trichome-encrusted, purple-tinted buds were seriously dense.  I have not had uncompressed marijuana this dense ever before.  When I broke the buds up to see inside, it was just a shower of crystals and hairs everywhere.  I decided to use one of my many trusty pocket knives to break up the rest of the buds as I smoked this herb.

The scent on this is so deep and dark.  You can smell that fantastic Grape Ape lineage in the flowers. They sparkle with trichomes all over, and while the buds aren't super purple all over, they definitely have purple tint.  This isn't some oxygen-starvation or cold-shock type purpling either.  This is genuine lineage markings.  I hope this is early in the cloning cycles and Artizen gets a great mother plant of this strain to continue improving with (turns out, it is).  I want to see some dark purple nugs through and through - and I got them on the second purchase.

The smoke on this is fantastic.  It's got all the deep, dark flavor you want and expect out of a heavy purple Indica like Grape Ape.  When you're inhaling there's nothing but sweetness across the tongue and when it travels down into your lungs is when the flavor gets you.  It's a lasting flavor - with some maximum aftertaste.  I was smacking my lips tasting this amazing flavor 20 minutes later.

This was a nice relaxing but not dopey high.  I felt great, like I could just be at one with the universe for all the time I was high.  I am a denizen of the internet, and as such relax by simply observing - instead of taking part in - other content creators' work.

I spent 4 hours watching videos of some of the games I love and listening to internet rappers - like Dan Bull.  It was a great, laughy good time, made much better by delicious Grape Ape.  What a satisfying experience.

The second time round, I spent about 4 hours listening to music from a variety of people via the official channel where I'm a resident DJ. Come listen to lots of other Ents' music!

The next morning, I wake and baked and it complimented my preparation for the day - which means my first pot of coffee of the day.  It was outstanding morning weed as well - that Indica quality of well-being really helps the day progress well.  This is entirely true as well on the second go round with this pot.

Overall, I love Artizen and every single smoke from them is delicious - like super flavorful - and gets you stoned as hell.
