Growth Comments: Easy grow, zero problems with her. Luckily she was very hearty and was a heavy drinker. I had an equipment failure dump the entire rez into her (and then onto the floor) and she acted like nothing happened and was ready for her regular daily drinks the next day

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): She had a fairly light scent growing. A bit of pine / menthol and a bit earthy. Dried she has a nice floral incense smell

The Smell: Earthy, Floral, Pine, Menthol, Incense

The Smoke: They smoke is very light and smooth. And she is also very deceptive as she is a pretty good expander. She has a nice light earthy floral flavor in a wrap.

Final Comments: I was so intrigued by the Ruby effect that I got a few very old long time heavy smokers and breeders over to try her in different forms with me over a period of time.

Combined together we had about 140 years of smoking under our belts

Everyone agreed on one thing as far as the effect… that she was a sneaky Rollercoaster. That’s actually what they all called her

Be warned, She has the ability to freak out light smokers, and with dry sift or concentrates you will get visuals. If you toke enough you can also get light visuals.

Ok, so here is what she did and the reason I said start out light and find your own dosage:

Torch a wrap and you may get in 4 or 5 tokes before you feel the first toke hit, then by the time you take another toke you realize that maybe you should have stopped after 3, then you get slammed with a very intense strong heavy head stone (this can and will scare light smokers if they take too many hits)

So there you are, high as a kite can ever get and you start thinking that you really might not want to smoke as much next time….. and after about 40 minutes or so you instantly think to yourself… wow, that high didn’t last very long as it seems gone… BUT then you realize you only came down just far enough to float onto a nice pain relieving comfortable cloud for the next 3 hours.

She takes you slowly up then suddenly you rocket to the very peak and sit at the top for a while before coming down to extremely enjoyable and effective long lasting medicinal couch lock.

Definitely a sneaky Rollercoaster !

Ruby… yeah… if you see her available I would recommend grabbing her

A very heavy hitting creeper and a good expander

What’s not to love about 8 zips of that ?
