Dog Days Come Early
Down, not out at MJ Express-O
Joshua Lee lifts his mood and mildly relaxes his muscles with Lucky Charms, then Sage n Sour stirs up a pleasant mix of sensations in his wretched sinuses and gives him a low-level impression of well-being without the hyperactive, searching mind of many other sativas.

The Nose Knew
Urban Wellness smells (good)
There have been over 100 terpenes found in cannabis, and the extent to which plant terpenes in general have been studied means a fuller knowledge of these compounds than cannabinoids (which have obviously not been studied so deeply). A patient armed with knowledge of these stinky bastards will be better equipped to treat their specific ailments. Finding the right strain for you can be a hit-and-miss journey otherwise.
