White Smurf has a quick-acting high that begins almost immediately after
the first few puffs. Its onset first manifests around the temples and behind
the eyes as an uplifting buzz. Eventually, as it intensifies, it begins to
swarm the mind to fill it with cheery thoughts which successfully turns the
mood upbeat. The behavioral change is immediate too, as smiles spread from ear
to ear and a bout of giggles escape the mouth.
The happy high is also a godsend for many casual users. It turns another
dreary day at work into a transformative experience that brings back
motivation. It sharpens the senses too and, as a result, enthusiasts feel more
in focus with work. Meanwhile, the boost in confidence also leaves one feeling
more open to discussion.
After about an hour or two, the light pressure oozes down to the rest of
the body in waves. It soothes each muscle until users are fully enveloped in total
relaxation until the joints are free of tension. Feeling like a well-oiled
machine, users are free to pursue tasks without the heaviness.
However, one must remember to use the strain within limits. Its
overwhelming effects can turn the buzzing ball of energy into the carcass of a
blown fuse, similar to that of a white dwarf. Users can be left in a daze as
the heightened awareness becomes too intense.
White Smurf has a cool fragrance that invigorates the senses. It smells strongly
of mint with a little bit of menthol. The citric scent of freshly picked lemons
later complements the overtones once the buds are either broken apart or
Drawn in, White Smurf entices the palate with its cool smoke. It washes
over the mouth with the surprising taste of mint. Accentuating it are notes of
zesty citrus and tangy lemon. On the exhale, however, it leaves an aftertaste
A cottonmouth and dry eyes are two of the most common and inevitable
reactions to smoking White Smurf. This is mostly due to its cannabinoids
interfering with the body’s natural ability to produce and retain moisture. Although
both are mild, users can still manage the symptoms by downing a few glasses of
water throughout the day.
Greening out, which is a mixture of dizziness, anxiety, or paranoia, is
another possibility too. Often, it is the result of consuming beyond tolerance
levels. However, one’s disposition before the high also plays a role. In such
cases, it is best to pace consumption of the bud or avoid it at all.
It is easy to assume that White Smurf, with its THC levels of up to 20%,
is a recreational strain. After all, it does deliver a head-to-toe buzz that can
easily rival the most potent of highs. However, it is also the psychoactive
compound that contains painkilling properties. And, at that level, it can
easily relieve a variety of aches and pains throughout the body.
Replacing the heaviness in one’s limbs is an energizing buzz that reinvigorates
the body. For this reason, it is a great source of comfort to patients dealing
with the exhaustion brought about by fatigue or disease. Meanwhile, its
anti-inflammatory qualities reduce swelling and redness to prevent the muscles
from suddenly contracting.
The same restorative effects also apply to other manifestations of stress. Its rush of euphoria soothes the mind of self-depreciating thoughts that usually accumulate into anxiety. At the same time, it uplifts the mood to help users with mental health issues like depression or PTSD manage existing symptoms although only for a temporary time.
