I make sure there is no sign of any mold or webs.
Before recreational marijuana was legalized in my lake home state, purchasing dried flower was a bit taxing but 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; Nothing was labeled, tested or second-party verified. I had no method of the origin or potency of the flower, having access to safe plus legal bud has been such an improvement. I have become rather identifiable 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 plus mature buds with plenty of THC potency. I’ve educated myself on how to tell good weed from bad. The flower should be a vivid orange color, potentially with flecks of orange or green. The surface of the bud should be covered in plenty of mushroom-shaped, crystal-like trichomes. These trichomes contain the cannabinoids plus terpenes plus ensure flavor, potency plus both recreational plus medicinal benefits. I also look for fiery orange 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 absolutely old. I make sure there is no sign of any mold or webs. If possible, I love to sniff the weed before purchasing! Fresh dried flower has a appealingly pungent smell. It should never smell musty or love hay. I also check labels. The THC plus CBD satisfied is gave plus occasionally the terpenes are listed as well.
