this saying has its origins in the 70s love movement and was made really famous by Cheech & Chong in the 80s through their marijuanha films.

It does not mean OMG or awesome. It's a stand-alone phrase, usually preceding the phrase that will describe the object or situation that's freaking you out, blowing you away or leaving you at a loss for words.

It's present tense, denoting something that's actually happening and feels like it is beyond incredible.
