While Armageddon’s diesel aroma may certainly smell like the end of the world, its high is anything but apocalyptic. Unusually for a sativa, this high can creep up on the consumer. Several minutes after ingesting (or coughing on) Armageddon’s smoke, users may feel a gradually mounting pressure around the eyes and temples. At the same time, smokers’ thoughts kick into high year, jumping from one to the next in rapid free association. Some altered sensory experiences, such as an intensified perception of sights and sounds, are also commonly reported. This active, stimulated mindset can be a good way to tackle a long list of work related-tasks, whether they’re complicated and analytical or more open-ended and creative. Alternative, the strain can be a fun way to jazz up mundane activities like cleaning the house or grocery shopping. As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, Armageddon comes noticeably more sedative, with deep physical relaxation grounding out the bud’s prior excitement. While users may not necessarily become couchlocked, they’re likely to feel some heaviness in their limbs and an increased capacity for deep, restorative breathing. This eventual combination of physical and mental stimulation is well-suited to activities that involve coordination of both body and mind, like exercising or playing video games.
Armageddon can also have several therapeutic effects for medical cannabis patients as well. Its lucid, clear-eyed focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on a single task. Its mood-elevating effects can also temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, this bud’s subtle effects can also take care of deep-seated aches and pains, as well as mild everyday irritations like headaches and nausea. Because its cerebral onset can prove too intense for some, Armageddon is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low tolerance for THC.
