I’ve written about the original Stiiizy vs Biiig Stiiizy before but this time around I was able to get my own and try out a new cartridge. The San Fernando Valley cartridge is named after the strain and of course the region in California. It’s gained notoriety for its mellow, full-body experience.
ORIGINS & DETAILS
I got the full gram cartridge from Kushagram for $60 and the BIIIG Stiiizy advanced kit for $35. The kit comes with the battery, a charger cord, and a little booklet with instructions and info on your device.
Day 1 with the Stiiizy I probably charged it a total of 30 minutes before taking it on the go with me. I didn’t find myself using it too often, mostly because there’s a bit of a peppery kick at the end that never fails to make me cough. It was great having something simple and portable like this to take the time and effort out of getting in a quick smoke session. In total, I probably only hit it like 6 or 7 times throughout the course of an 8 hour workday. That was enough to keep me at a low level functioning high all day. It kept me calm and relaxed. I found myself a lot less stressed or frustrated with things in the workplace.
Day 2 with the SFV cartridge went a bit better. I was getting used to the spicy end notes and coughing a lot less. I found it didn’t take too many pulls from the Stiiizy to get the same effect as smoking a blunt or joint. I had a super restful night after using the pen before bed the night before. I took this pen everywhere with me: work, the bus, the movies. It was very useful and not once showed any indication of low battery.
Day 3 with the SFV cartridge and BIIIG Stiiizy showed me how long these things can typically last when you’re not sharing it with all of your friends. San Fernando Valley is an indica strain that leaves consumers feeling relaxed, happy, tired, and calm. Larger doses induce a state of fatigue that can make consumers lazy and sluggish. Unlike many other indica strains, San Fernando Valley doesn’t give me an insane case of the munchies. SFV induces a hunger that can be easily taken care of with a protein shake or your favorite easy snack like popcorn.
By the end of the week, I had managed to make the one gram pod last a whole 7 days and I didn’t recharge the battery of my Stiiizy once. On the fifth day, I shared the pen with about 8 friends. We passed it around for about an hour and it didn’t seem to make a significant difference in the amount of product used. It did admittedly run out completely three days later. On another note, my friends thoroughly enjoyed the SFV strain and half of them admitted to already feeling high halfway through the sesh. It made everyone very giggly and sociable, although often forgetful and occasionally unfocused. Everyone coughed at least once either due to hitting the pen too hard or just that spicy taste you get at the back of your throat from hitting the SFV strain. Overall, I highly recommend the San Fernando Valley stiiizy pod and for the best effect, use it with the BIIIG Stiiizy. You won’t be disappointed.
