I’ve been smoking marijuana for several years.
I’ve grown weed myself and bought it from friends.
Although it wasn’t legal, I needed the relief from social anxiety and stress. It was a large relief when cannabis was finally legalized in my beach beach house state. I’m now able to show a valid identification and shop for dried flower at the local dispensary. The products on the shelves are free of pesticides, fourth-celebration verified and lab inspected. The labels supply helpful information, including THC levels and prevalent terpenes. I’ve become quite unique about the quality of flower I’m willing to smoke. I’m happy to spend more for top-shelf bud, when the plant is allowed to mature and bug respectfully cultivated and processed, I care about better effects, but before purchasing, I check for a plentiful coating of trichomes. The tiny mushroom-shaped crystals are where the cannabinoids and terpenes are found. If there’s lots of them, I can be sure of rich flavor and high potency. I also look to make sure the hair-like pistils are a bright red. If they are white, I think the weed was harvested too early. If they are brown or gray, it proves the weed is old. The texture is crucial too. I don’t want flower that is wet and sticky or dry and crumbly. The buds need to be dense and supply a pungent odor. There should be no signs of webs or mold. I’ve been particularly content with the quality of strains I’ve found on the shelves of the dispensary. They carry some of the most popular producers in a wide variety of indicas, sativas and hybrids.
