UpperCut on Tour: The Highest Sesh in Low Season on the 18th of May in Phuket at Phuket High

Tiramisu is the second bud I have sampled from Arasaka. My man is growing some really strong stuff. Tiramisu flat out knocked me on my ass and had me plowed into the couch. But before I get into the high, a quick description of the bud: Arasaka’s bud is dense, sticky, dark purple green based with a sweet vanilla, custard, peppery pungent smell with a bit of pine released when ground. The flavor is very pungent, skunky, peppery and sweet.  These are excellent aromas and tastes, and indeed my excitement for the flavors led me to overdo the bud.

As previously mentioned the first night I smoked it I was overpowered and became one with my couch. This may be the most potent bud I have tried in Thailand. Smoking a full joint overpowered me—and I have a fairly high tolerance.  Two nights later I smoked a mini joint of probably 6 puffs. Those 6 puffs left me my head swimming, my body relaxed, and my mood chill and relaxed, slowly moving about. I accomplished small tasks, slowly and methodically—but another puff would have probably put me back in bed. 

I recommend Tiramisu for anyone who any experienced user trying to exit reality for a while. The flavors and aromas are excellent, but the effects are debilitating and should be taken seriously even by experienced users.  Novice users, just forget about it. This is a bud for only the most experienced toker. Arasaka 420 is for real!
