Not sure about the strain, but here's a quick history lesson: "Hiro" Chirac actually refers to the wanker, err, French President Jacques Chirac who on Hiroshima Day (anniversary of the A-bomb) in 1995 was protested by large numbers of demonstrators under the Eiffel Tower to stop French nuclear weapon testing in the Pacific ocean! (only China and France still do.) What this name has to do with the strain is still a mystery to me....
This is one of those electra-green weeds, looking like it was stuck into an electrical plug and "turned on". The buds are rather "fuzzy" with bits of crystal covered broad leaves left on and jagged and non-uniform hairs jutting in and out all over the place.

Satisfaction, pure and simple.
Be seated (you'd be best off "strapped in") and have some nice fresh drinks handy when you are ready to hit this one off! The FX are powerful and immediate.

Use this when you are on your own or perhaps when your partner is comfortable with long... real long silences.
This is a great weed to smoke for people who have tried a bunch of other strains and are losing track of it all! This weed gets you really baked and has you stumbling around in a perma-grinned state. I enjoyed this "hero" all over my lips, but the real Mr. Chirac can kiss my...want to review? create an account
