This strain fit very well into our daytime routines and pleased us with its distinctly floral elements which were present in both the aroma and flavor. We appreciated the cure and overall texture quite a bit, and it seemed to help the aroma stay present whether it was ground or sitting in the jar. The combination of relaxation and mental uplift this strain offers had us feeling positive but smoothly relaxed for upwards of 3 hours, making this a great strain to medicate with mid-day and feel relief until early evening. Definitely check out this one if you want a smooth Sativa that doesn't come with any real side effects or negatives.

If you like a floral-spicy Haze type of aroma, this strain has that in spades. The name really makes sense once a whiff of the scent is detected, as it is ripe with flowery qualities and does bring to mind actual lavender. It's like the Blueberry side of the family took a vacation and left the Haze at home to play, though there is a slight sweetness (some described it as "purple, but not grapey") underlying the Haze elements. It's not the most pungent sample around, but it's definitely noticeable in the jar, and becomes nicely pungent once broken apart.
The flowery, almost soapy Haze elements from the aroma came through strongly in the flavor, though it wasn't quite as pleasing to our tastes as it was in aroma form for whatever reason. It has a light sweetness to it, but it was mostly present on the initial inhale, changing quickly to the more floral flavor that remained until the aftertaste. The smoke was light and crisp in the mouth, hitting smoothly and not really causing coughing except on some large hits. The final ash was a fluffy medium-light gray, showing it had received a proper flush.
This strain is somewhat unique in that it seemed to come on as more of an Indica to start, relaxing us and knocking us down a peg slightly, then transitioning into a more uplifting and Hazy effect after about 30 minutes. We felt that this one put us in a meditative state where we could function and work, but it carried a bit of signature Haze spaciness that had us walking around in circles at times, enjoying some of the psychoactivity it offered. The smooth effects peaked around 45 minutes, then gradually declined from there, lingering out to over 3 hours for most of our staff.
