Best marijuana buds reward you with great smoking experience. A good cannabis bud can offer pleasant highs, relaxing aromas, and great flavor. Everyone desires to avoid the ‘bunk’, ‘bad’, ‘brick’, and ‘schwag’ weeds. Look for the following traits when you visit the marijuana dispensary in Tampa, FL. It will help to separate high-end strains from the less desired ones.
What are cannabis buds?
Dried and cured flowers of female cannabis plants are called ‘buds’ or ‘nugs’. They are intoxicating! The main indicator that causes mind-altering effects is the THC compound but, in some buds, there is a high CBD level, which is non-psychoactive.
Traits to look for in high-quality marijuana bud
A pleasant and pungent aroma is exhibited after the blooms are cultivated and cured. Flowers revealing strong aroma are referred to as having ‘loud’ or ‘dank’ smell that indicates the overall flower quality. Some terms used to emphasize high-quality cannabis aromas include piney, diesel, and skunky.
The stronger the aroma, the better the quality!
Visual and looks
Visual hints of fresh and healthy produce are exhibited in an array of colors. High-end flowers are lime or deep green with red or flaming orange hair. You can even find colors ranging from bright blue to deep purple but never exhibit brown shades.
Trichomes amount is another crucial visual indicator. Trichomes are crystal-like small glittering appendages on the surface of the plants that produce and hold compounds responsible for the flavor, aroma, and effects.
More trichomes indicate a potent therapeutic and intoxicating effect!
High-quality buds are slightly spongy and sticky, so squeeze it gently between your fingers. The bud and stems must snap or break easily. If the buds are very dry they crumble on touch and if they are wet mold or mildew can develop, so avoid such flowers.
Sativa-dominant flowers are fluffy and light in composition and shape. The flower structure is tight and dense but this does not impact the experience.
If the flowers are –
- Rock-hard, it means the cultivator has used growth regulators that can negatively impact the taste.
- Very fluffy, it hints the plant did not receive sufficient light and less effort was taken to cultivate it.
A properly structured flower looks aesthetically pleasing!
Your personal taste is the best indicator…….
Ultimately, choosing a great cannabis bud is subjective. Your preference may differ from your friends or local budtender. The right product is the one that blends with your personal chemistry and you desire to enjoy it again and again!
