Strain: Ripped Bubba | 60% indica-dominant hybrid of Pre-98 Bubba Kush with sativa, Jack The Ripper.
Mental Wellness: Lots of anxiety relief without getting stuck in the couch. Really impressed with the specific relief of anxiety. It dropped my everyday baseline — something I didn’t realize was so high-key. Wow. Incredible for that. Will try it again before an event and see how it does with my social anxiety and update here.
Also, definite mood boost in a positive, rather happy manner. After awhile I did get sleepy and take a nap. For me this is a good thing.
>> Note: Sleepy is probably not the common occurrence for most. Either my paradoxical response kicked in (sleepy can make me wakey for instance), or after a rough night due to flashbacks and insomnia – the real kind — I was finally in enough relief to get some zzzs.
Pain: Good pain relief in muscles and back — so much so, was able to take a nap for about two hours. This is no easy feat and a rarity with my symptoms.
Overall: Love this strain. Great day-timer when I’m having pain and don’t want to sleep for a long period. On later smokes, creativity in the studio was buzzin’. Work on AmericanBadassAdvocates.org commenced and dinner was made. So yes, a definite mood booster and I’m wondering if it helped focus my cognitive skills.
