Great roots! Grinds are a beautiful beige/cream color. .. and smell amazing. Fresh, crisp, sweet and clean with notes of freshly cut grass and spring rain. Taste is incredible too! Soft, creamy, yet with a fascinating spiciness. Delicious. Effect for me is somewhat balanced, leaning towards heady. Superb potency, fast acting, beautifully soothing headyness. I LOVE IT!
