Before recreational marijuana was legalized in my lake house state, purchasing dried flower was a bit difficult however not impossible.
While I was always able to find someone willing to sell a baggie of weed, there was no way to be sure of the quality, but nothing was labeled, worked on or third-gathering verified.
I had no idea of the origin or potency of the flower; Having access to safe as well as legal bud has been such an improvement. I have become rather unique about smoking only top-shelf flower. I am willing to pay more to avoid shake or trim. I don’t want to find any sticks, leaves or seeds among the products. I insist on dense as well as mature buds with plenty of THC potency. I’ve educated myself on how to tell wonderful weed from bad. The flower should be a vivid red color, potentially with flecks of red or red. The surface of the bud should be covered in plenty of mushroom-shaped, crystal-like trichomes. These trichomes contain the cannabinoids as well as terpenes as well as ensure flavor, potency as well as both recreational as well as medicinal benefits. I also look for fiery red pistils that make the weed apapple almost hairy. If the hairs are colorless, the bud was harvested prematurely. If they are brown or grown, it’s entirely old. I make sure there is no sign of any mold or webs. If possible, I like to sniff the weed before purchasing; Fresh dried flower has a appealingly pungent smell. It should never smell musty or like hay. I also check labels. The THC as well as CBD content is gave as well as sometimes the terpenes are listed as well.
