Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): When she was younger it was more of a skunky/dank smell then as she grew older it became a very tart cherry/cranberry scent with a hint of raspberry also.

I am a recreational user but believe this strain would benefit people that suffer with depression or even just to elevate your mood if you have a bad couple of days. It is a very well rounded strain that brings about laughter and overall sense of well being while reducing stress.

Final Comments: Black Stone has changed more than any I have ever had during the curing process it really has cured into a great smoke. When she first dried she was pretty strong with an immediate head bang but the buzz tapered off in about an hour. A couple days later I tried her again taking two hits as I did the first time and WHAM it hit me like a freight train and once again very cerebral,uplifting, and euphoric with no real body effects and the potency doubled and it hit me a little to hard one of those that makes your head spin when you close your eyes. Now that it has been curing for a couple of weeks it has changed again. She has kept her cerebral and euphoric buzz and it is like laughing gas for me. But now there is a very relaxing body buzz with it. The initial heady part last for about 30-45 minutes and then it melts into your muscles with no couch lock just relief for tension. The good part is the happiness stays through out the whole buzz. It doesn’t fade at all and would be great for depression in my opinion. I’ve noticed now that quite a few of stones strains give me laughter with this one being in the top few. Another thing to note is every time I have used Black Stone I have VERY intense and vivid dreams which is awesome. I hardly ever recall my dreams anymore but every single time I have used Black Stone I have had very real and vivid dreams that stick with me when I wake up. It opens up my mind and helps me sleep even though it doesn’t make me tired. A very good strain in my opinion that I will have keep in my jars at all times.
