Liga IV

Posted , by Steve R

As I write this, Liga IV is being counted in by our receiving crew. Crates upon crates of silky smooth Liga IVs, waiting for a home. I haven’t picked any from the shipment that just landed, but I still remember the samples like I smoked them yesterday. The first thought that ran through my mind upon receiving them was “Farmie”.
