I think this pheno had some thcv in it for sure. I have a 3:1 thcv:thc cart and I noticed a similarity but preferred the Ethiopia. My guess is the terps are more in alignment with my body and higher thc.I think the THCV in Ethiopian and also found in other African sativas is a factor in making this strain so uplifting and calming at the same time. It sets a good mood for the day when smoked in the morning.
I'm enjoying a bowl of Ethiopian + Guatemala right now while drinking a hot cup of my special herbal tea blend I make myself. Fermented blackberry, strawberry, blueberry leaves, ginger, lemon balm, mint, lemongrass, orange peel, mullein.
I like to start my day off with a variety of herbs.
I smoked it at night, def not a night time herb but didnt really effect my sleep. I actually woke up in a good mood which isn't typical for me. I'm not saying I wake up angry(sometimes I do lol) but my mood was still noticably elevated. I can see this being a mood setter for the day for sure.
That ExG sounds super appealing, I found ace after they had sold out of Guatemala =\
That's an interesting mix of herbs in your tea. I know mullein helps one breathe. Are you using the others for their benefits or as a flavor?
