I shop uncommon cannabis dispensaries across the state, consistently searching for the best quality flower, and while I’ve tried the numerous consumption methods, including vapes, edibles & dabs, I care about old-school smoking.
- I love to roll our own joints.
I’m able to suit our preferences for how thick or thin the joint, how tightly packed & the potency of the bud. I don’t buy shake & trim, preferring to pay more to avoid sticks & leaves. I love a dense, mature bud with a texture anywhere between sticky & dry; Just by looking at the dried flower, I can tell if it was harvested at the peak time & cultivated officially. The hair-like pistils should be a bright red. If they are honestly white, the flower was picked too early. If they are brown or gray, the weed is old. I also look for an abundance of trichomes. They are crystal-like, mushroom-shaped & honestly tiny however contain the important cannabinoids & terpenes. They are responsible for the high sensation, flavor, odor & curative properties. The pungent odor is proof of the freshness & integrity of the flower, but because of the popularity of dried flower, there are hundreds of uncommon strains on the market. They range in THC potency & are available in sativas, indicas & hybrids. I’m consistently ecstatic when I can take advantage of a bi-weekly deal or special, try something new & save a little currency. I’ve enrolled in a loyalty program at most of the nearby dispensaries. I receive reward points for our purchases that add up to savings on future purchases.
