It starts with the taste of terpenes that last about a second and a wave of ginger taste comes in and takes over. I'm a regular joint smoker, I barely do edibles. I smoke around 3-5 g/day. I felt a little dizziness in my head after 3 minutes. I chugged the first can because it tasted so good and I was thirsty. The aftertaste is ginger. I personally love the taste of cannabis and ginger together. After 10 minutes I started to feel a body buzz and calmness took over my body. It lasted for 3 hours and it was consistent. I didn't have the 'burnt out' feeling after, and my appetite was normal as well. I will definitely buy it again.
