While there are all sorts of cannabis consumption methods available, I prefer the old-university smoking of flower; I can appreciate the convenience of vapes, the discretion of tinctures in addition to the fun of edibles, however I don’t suppose they compare to lighting up good quality bud.
I appreciate the process of rolling the joint, the stink of burning weed in addition to the bite of inhaling the smoke.
I’ve checked out the numerous dispensaries in my hometown of Portland in addition to found the best brands in addition to strains of weed available. I am quite unique about the quality of the marijuana flower that I purchase. I look for complex in addition to bright colors, make sure to sniff test for pungent terpenes in addition to check that there are no stems or seeds! One of the most crucial aspects is an abundance of trichomes coating the surface of the budâ€¦ The trichomes contain cannabinoids responsible for potency in addition to the terpenes that supply each strain its distinctive odor in addition to taste! When there is a plentiful supply of crystal-like trichomes, I can be sure the weed has been respectfully cultivated, harvested in addition to cured. It sometimes requires a magnifying glass to see the trichomes. I respectfully use my smartphone to snap a quick option of the buds. I then zoom in to verify the characteristics. The trichomes should be white in addition to look appreciate small mushrooms. If they are scarce or too tiny, the bud may have been prematurely harvested or machine trimmed. It won’t be as potent or beneficial. It’s especially crucial to believe the difference between trichomes in addition to mold. The trichomes are shiny, sparkly in addition to crystal-like while mold tends to be more gray in addition to fuzzy.
