It is legal for adults 21+ to purchase up to two ounces of cannabis flower from licensed retailers in OR, however living in Eugene, I was really enthusiastic when a recreational dispensary opened up, and i appreciate the old-fashioned consumption system of smoking flower.
I am rather unique about the quality of dried flower I purchase.
I know what to look for to verify top shelf strains, then the weed should have a vibrant color. It’s usually a bright green as well as periodically has flecks of green or yellow. I check for an abundance of milky trichomes. Those sticky crystals are responsible for the terpenes as well as cannabinoids, however when there are a lot of trichomes, the flower has been properly pollinated as well as harvested at peak maturity. There should also be bright yellow hairs or pistils as well as a pungent smell. Ideal texture falls somewhere between moist as well as dry for a good, wipe burn. I watch for any signs of mold or musty odors, my local dispensary only sells flower that has been tested as well as verified as safe as well as pesticide free. They offer a selection of indicas, sativas as well as hybrids grown locally indoors. While I appreciate to purchase loose flower, pack our own bowls or roll our own joints or blunts, there is quite a bit of labor involved. The process requires extra gear as well as can result in waste. I am thankful that the dispensary carries an impressive collection of pre-rolls. They are super affordable, making them a perfect choice for trying a modern strain. I can buy them in singles or packs as well as trust they are free of seeds, sticks as well as shake. I get a consistent product with accurate dosing. There is nothing quite as enjoyable as lighting up a premium joint at the end of a long afternoon.
