Honestly, the vast majority of charass Ive tried, has always been very old, dried out and disappointing. But the few times it was fresh, made up for the all the crap stuff.
The Temple Balls or pieces of were always easier to find for some reason and quality was always pretty good. The only problem was how to get this super sticky goodness into a joint or bong and then off your fingers.
Im sure your version of the Temple Balls was pure fire man. Did you hand rub, collect and then press?
