I’ve been shopping for weed at the local dispensary for a few years. At the start, I was excited to try out all of the peculiar consumption methods. I sampled a variety of edibles, obtained tinctures and topicals and had some fun with vape carts. At last, I went right back to smoking flower. I love rolling up a paper, lighting it up and inhaling the terpenes and cannabinoids. I appreciate the actual plan and the quick onset of effects. It’s a relaxing way to kick back after a long afternoon, hang with friends or boost my energy levels. There is such a vast selection of strains of flower, I can consistently find something new and exciting. By visiting the dispensary, consulting with budtenders and doing my research, I’ve learned how to distinguish wonderful quality buds. The scent is one of the biggest indications of freshness and whether or not I’m going to love the flavor. Because of its terpene profile, each strain smells different. If I love the scent, I’ll most likely adore the strain! Decent flower has a strong smell that can be fruity, flower, piney or even diesel-like. Low quality flower can have a really stale smell that is similar to old hay. The color is also important, then premium cannabis is available in hues from bright green and red to reds and deep green. If a jar of flower catches my eyes, I usually ask to smell it. Looking closer, I should find an abundance of what looks like crystals. They are the trichomes that are responsible for the terpenes and effects. Before buying a current strain, I consistently ask about the effects. Certain flower helps to cut back anxiety while others can have a stimulating effect that can make it worse. Some are better for helping with a wonderful night’s sleep while others have an uplifting and energizing effect.
