I have tried many strains through the years, and this by far is my favorite and remains so to this day. Primarily for the euphoric effect it has. For me, the euphoria is very much present with this particular strain, and have yet to find a strain that produces euphoria like this does.

Cotton Candy is only the second strain I tried. The first one was BC but as you can understand from reviews they are kind of the same thing. From this point on, I'm gonna call it a "work-weed". It only takes a few minutes to come into effect and you are ready to move mountains cause it's incredibly potent. So if you are new to this game think twice before smoking such pot, it might leave you couch looked instead of highly productive. But if you're not, procrastination, laziness and reluctance will be put on the back-burner. More importantly its impact on you brings all the needed motivation and enough strength to cope with dull work. Even ordinary mundane tasks become fun. When using it, it like keeps you off the treadmill. And saves your time! Spend twenty minutes and feel it like a couple of hours! Sounds like a lottery, huh? The only drawback is that you might feel worn out when it runs out of an effect. It tasted harshly like chlorophyll when I smoked it but the aroma was lavender and fruity. Vaped it has the fresh and minty taste instead of chlorophyll, so you decide.

Truly love this one! If I could I would use this hybrid every day. All day long... It has quick outset and hits your head harshly but then relaxation comes. A good shit to concentrate on something whether it work, book or film. I was watching Harry Potter for two hours straight and stopped only because I got hungry. It's also useful if you need to stay stone-cold in some living situation or at work. You'll be able to make a deliberate decision. But at home it's a great mood lifter with a little of giggles maybe. Helps me to pretend for a while I'm a normal person without mental problems. While using it I can forget that something's wrong with me. I will definitely buy it again, even more than this time.

Oh Cotton Candy strain affects you like yoga, meditation and calming tea taken together but much faster and the result doesn't require any efforts. It'll give your brain a lovely soothing bath. It has a slight sweet smell and similar flavor, so the name is fair. The buds are of beautiful light green colour with lots of orange hairs. What I extremely like about this plant is that you will get high quickly but smoothly. At first, you'll feel it in your head and eyes, then in neck and shoulders and lower to your feet. You'll experience an anxiety alleviation and a great opportunity to veg without blaming yourself for procrastination.

I really take pride in my will-power. I managed to force myself to try and then review the best strains ever known, so people could have an idea of what the effects each pot has and therefore which one they need. When I came home after an awful day the level of my tension was so incredibly high I wanted to smash all around and I even could have hurt someone in the heat of the moment. Who could know that everything I needed was one joint! I felt the sweetest relief and my pain was gone straight away. Its carnival sweets flavor with hints of candy fruit has a calming effect too and is extremely recognizable. That is why I want to make it known to as many people as possible. Forget about problems, forget about pain, just enjoy this comfort and be the happiest man in the world.

This stuff is everything you ever needed or were trying to find and I can prove it. Turns out that weed can bring you lots of aesthetic pleasure apart from its main effect. I never paid much attention to the appearance of the buds but when I brought home this half ounce right after buying it, I was amazed by its beauty. Every square inch of its surface was covered in trichomes. And the buds are of most intense purple color I've ever seen! I don't know, maybe I'm overreacting. It has just been so long since the last time I noticed how I feel when I'm high. In any case my condition can be described as breathtaking. And I can't stop smelling this ethereal piece of masterpiece. It's simply beyond description and I won't even give it a try. So now I think it's time for me to leave and concentrate on this strange tingling sensation.

I can put it on the list of my three most beloved buds. Strong and even tasty candy smell of pot turns into a light sweet and flowery smoke. The buds are crunchy and perfectly dense. Also I really liked how beautifully the nugs smoke, like the weed is going to smoke itself. A weird picture to be honest. Anyway, the point is that this strain is perfect for those who want to spend some time in their own company, or just enjoy being alone. Your half-softened body and proactive but peaceful mind will allow you to enjoy some hobbies or think about something larger.
