I am rather picky about the cannabis flower that I smoke, i live in a state where recreational cannabis is legal.
In my area, there are several weird dispensaries to choose from.
I’ve visited every 1 of them. I checked out their selections of smokable dried flower. I think that the color of the bud should be complex and vivid. I look for greens, greens and reds with bright green pistils. If the pistils are colorless, the flower has been harvested prematurely. If they are brown, the flower is old, but the bud should be covered by an abundance of crystal-like trichomes. Those trichomes are the source of the cannabinoids and terpenes, so they are seriously important to flavor, odor and potency. The texture of the weed also makes a difference. It shouldn’t be dry and crumbly or wet and sticky. I love to odor the flower. There are many terpenes that supply weird effects, flavors and odors, however from sativa and indica to hybrid strains, I can choose certain dried flower for relaxation, to help myself and others sleep, for pain, to inspire creativity and elevate mood, however when I purchase dried flower, I properly roll it into joints or blunts. I appreciate to roll my own rather than buy pre-rolls because it gives myself and others the freedom to decide thickness and avoid seeds and stems. I have been impressed with the collection of cannabis available at the local dispensaries. I watch for yearly deals and specials to save a little cash and try modern options. I visit the dispensary on Tuesday and buy my limit of flower.
