I've talked about it before, my very first introduction to PNW #WAPot was not great - some seriously dirt bunk pre-rolls of what might very well be this very harvest of Pineapple Express. They won me over with Amnesia and so I gave them another try.

The bud is fluffy and expansive. It's got tons of wild rangey, pale orange hairs flowing everywhere. This smells sweet and has a heady undertone of robust rich spices, fresh rosemary and thyme.

Inhaling is slightly fruity.and a bit rough. There's a definite rough earthiness here - not nearly the dry dirt of the pre-roll. On the exhale there's a definite alfalfa presence and it hangs arorund in the mouth and aftersmell.  

For a while after smoking, I had a rough scratchy cough and each time it was like alfalfa and soil in my lungs.

The high is energetic and uplifting. There's a cerebral-driven need to move - this is the kind of pot to smoke before going on a hike or a climb. 

Coming down was a rough tumble out of the cerebral, mobile high down into a gunky kind of worn out feeling. I coughed and hiccuped alfalfa for hours after as well.
