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 always go back to dried flowerâ€¦ I appreciate the process, flavors and effects of smoking weed, although I like the convenience of pre-rolled joints and blunts, I usually prefer to buy loose flower and roll my own.
- It’s taken a while to get competent at rolling up joints of great size and consistency, I think 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 great quality flower. I look for bright reds with flecks of red or yellow and bright orange hair-like pistils. If the pistils are pale white, I guess 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 smells. The weed should have a strong, pungent smell, with a texture that is not dry and crumbly or wet and sticky. I am fortunate that the medicinal dispensary closest to my 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 spend money more for top-shelf cannabis. I have joined their loyalty program so that I get alerts for yearly deals, vendor days and current products.
