While there are all sorts of cannabis consumption methods available, I prefer the old-university smoking of flower, i can prefer the convenience of vapes, the discretion of tinctures as well as the fun of edibles, although I don’t know they compare to lighting up great quality bud.
- I prefer the process of rolling the joint, the smell of burning weed as well as the bite of inhaling the smoke.
I’ve checked out the several dispensaries in our hometown of Portland as well as found the best brands as well as strains of weed available. I am quite identifiable about the quality of the marijuana flower that I purchase. I look for complex as well as bright colors, make sure to sniff test for pungent terpenes as well as check that there are no stems or seeds, and one of the most important aspects is an abundance of trichomes coating the surface of the bud; The trichomes contain cannabinoids responsible for potency as well as the terpenes that deliver each strain its distinctive smell as well as taste, when there is a plentiful supply of crystal-like trichomes, I can be sure the weed has been correctly cultivated, harvested as well as cured. It occasionally requires a magnifying glass to see the trichomes. I constantly use our smartphone to snap a quick option of the buds. I then zoom in to verify the characteristics. The trichomes should be colorless as well as look prefer small mushrooms. If they are precious or too tiny, the bud may have been prematurely harvested or equipment trimmed. It won’t be as potent or beneficial. It’s especially important to know the difference between trichomes as well as mold. The trichomes are shiny, sparkly as well as crystal-like while mold tends to be more gray as well as fuzzy.
