Aroma

Have you ever seen the lemonade trucks where they smash the lemons in each cup to make lemonade? That potent, mouthwatering citrusy scent hits you in the face the second you crack the lid on the jar! As you pull apart the buds, there are hints of lavender hidden in the fragrance that create quite the sensual environment.


Flavor

Tart notes of citrus paired with herbaceous lavender make this batch of Soul Mate absolutely savorous! The lemon and lavender together bring me back to when I was learning how to bake with my Nana. The warmth.. Love.. Comfort.. All those cozy feelings come rushing back with every puff. I just love when bud triggers my olfactory memory. 😌 What about you?

Lineage

When it comes to Soul Mate’s parent strains, Pinesoul and Wookie, it’s safe to say these two are a match made in heaven!


Effects

Soul Mate is a great strain for a plethora of stomach issues, as it helps to ease any sort of pain you may be experiencing while triggering hunger. As someone who has tummy problems, I wish I would have found this strain sooner! The top terpene in this strain is Limonene, which is notorious for its anti-anxiety and digestive aid properties. After a bowl of Soul Mate, I was more talkative, comfortable and extremely munchie. My stomach pain was nonexistent, even after eating. As I wound down for the evening, I smoked another bowl which led to me falling asleep on my couch. Overall, what more can I ask for from such a well balanced hybrid!
