The story of Elektra from Greek Mythology is one of a daughter who steps in to save the life of her brother by sending him to safety when their father was murdered (for the sake of this summary we’ll just leave off the rest of the story because, well, it’ Greek Mythology, so you just know there’s weird stuff and craziness than then follows). Known as the Bright One, she protects from danger and unproductive acts, which is what this strain really does. It shuts off the danger from stress, tension, and pain, both mentally and physically, allowing you to focus on what you need, without further distractions. This is a popular, powerful, comfortable strain that looks and tastes as good as it gives.
