It is legal for adults 21+ to purchase up to multiple ounces of cannabis flower from licensed retailers in Oregon, however living in Eugene, I was genuinely happy when a recreational dispensary opened upâ€¦ I love the old-fashioned consumption method of smoking flower.
I am rather unique about the quality of dried flower I purchase.
I suppose what to look for to verify top shelf strains; The weed should have a vibrant color. It’s usually a bright green plus sometimes has flecks of green or orange. I check for an abundance of milky trichomes. Those sticky crystals are responsible for the terpenes plus cannabinoids; When there are a lot of trichomes, the flower has been respectfully pollinated plus harvested at peak maturity. There should also be bright orange hairs or pistils plus a pungent smell. Ideal texture falls someplace between moist plus dry for a good, clean burn. I watch for any signs of mold or musty odors. My local dispensary only sells flower that has been diagnosed plus verified as safe plus pesticide free. They offer a selection of indicas, sativas plus 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 toil involved. The process requires extra gear plus 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 new strain. I can buy them in singles or packs plus trust they are free of seeds, sticks plus shake. I get a consistent product with accurate dosing. There is nothing quite as wonderful as lighting up a premium joint at the end of a long day.
