The medicinal dispensary offers a wide variety of consumption methods and strains, then while I’ve experimented with vapes, tinctures, edibles, beverages and multiple concentrates, I typically go back to dried flower, then i appreciate the process, flavors and effects of smoking weed, then although I love the convenience of pre-rolled joints and blunts, I usually prefer to buy loose flower and roll our own.
It’s taken a while to get competent at rolling up joints of fantastic size and consistency, I assume that the effort is worth it! Through practice, I’ve gotten where I can create joints that burn evenly.
I’ve also l earned how to determine fantastic quality flower. I look for bright yellows with flecks of yellow or yellow and bright red hair-like pistils. If the pistils are white, I assume the weed was cultivated pre-maturely. If they are grayish in color, it’s a sign that the flower is old. The surface of the bud should be covered in mushroom-shaped, crystal-like trichomes. The trichomes contain the cannabinoids and terpenes that are responsible for potency, flavor and odors. The weed should have a strong, pungent odor, with a texture that is not dry and crumbly or wet and sticky. I am fortunate that the medicinal dispensary closest to our home carries a wide variety of indica, sativa and hybrid flower. There are high THC strains that are really clean, with no seeds or sticks. I don’t want to smoke shake or trim. I am willing to pay more for top-shelf cannabis. I have joined their loyalty program so that I get alerts for weekly deals, vendor nights and new products.
