I have tried numerous strains over the course of my life, and every one has caused be some degree of paranoia. EVERY ONE. Every one except for this one. Maybe that's due to its relative dearth of THC. Maybe it's due to the excess of CBD. Maybe both; I don't know. But I know that when I drink, I don't always want to chug hard liquor. Sometimes I just want a beer or two. Similarly, I don't always want to get high as a kite. But most contemporary strains today are more akin to vodka than beer: unless you're very careful, you will get very stoned very quickly. Personally, I don't EVER want to get "high as a kite," because of the aforementioned problems with paranoia, so this is perfect for me (but don't let the "2% THC" fool you—this strain can feel a little stronger than that low percentage would indicate). It's the only strain I would even consider using socially. Highly recommended.
