The resinous flowers have a pungently sour, earthy smell (which some consider to be the source to the strain’s beastly name). Lurking under these untamed scents is a woodsy, almost piney odor.
Hog creeps up on users, sometimes taking as many as fifteen minutes to reveal the extent of its mellow effects. Initial symptoms manifest as a pressure around the eyes and temples. This feeling soon melts into a slow, heavy body high that’s great for stretching out horizontally and enjoying trippy some music or movies. Hog’s physically numbing effects may actually be so intense as to cause a feeling to disorientation or depersonalization for some smokers. The bud’s mental effects are as sedative as its physical ones, dulling any sharp concerns or stresses. Rather than exacting and cerebral, Hog’s mindset is more spacey, allowing smokers to daydream at will; this is not a strain to consume if you’re planning on getting any work done. On the other hand, Hog can be a very social bud to enjoy if you’re planning a mellow night in with friends. Eventually, this drowsy strain may lead to couch (or bed) lock, trapping smokers in place in the closest comfortable surroundings. Best enjoyed at night -- or during an especially slow day -- Hog is known for immobilizing even more experienced smokers. Finally, a small amount of this bud is said to go quite a long way.
