This is Cheap Weed

Animal Mints by Back Forty (Auxly) packaged on October 6th, 2021, cost $22.95 for 3.5 grams with 18.43% THC 0.8% CBD and an earthy herbal piney scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts with a buzzing euphoric invasion of our senses.  There is a hazy euphoric slippery feel to the “high.”  Over the first 10 minutes, a plethora of expressions like joyfulness, deceleration of the heart beat, mental incoherence and time dilation unfold.  Again, we are surprised we are enjoying this experience from a value bulk Weed.

What is the difference between this Animal Mints and a Premium Indica like Triangle Kush by Black Kettle Farms?  Triangle Kush delivers mind numbing effect with greater intensity.   At 18.43% THC, the peak “high” last less than 45 minutes.  But, for the price paid, we can light another one up, every hour on the hour?   Seriously, this Animal Kush does the job and it is cheap.

Activity pairing is best in the evening time slots.  Animal Mints by Back Forty delivers an enjoyable “high” to relax before bed?  or all the time? all day long?  This is Cheap Weed.
