How do you know if a cannabis strain is good? What are all those terms that can mean different things to different people? Is there really any way to tell?
Well, we’re going to try and help you out here. We’ve got some tips to make sure your weed is as potent as possible without giving up too much flavor or aroma.
First of all, let’s start with the basic terminology. There are so many different words for what one person considers “good”, or even just “quality”. Some people will say it’s only worth smoking if it has an “Aroma” rating of at least 3.5 on a scale from 1-10; others will say that a quality product should have no smell whatsoever (like the budtender might be able to taste it in her mouth). This means that when you’re shopping around for the best strains, it’s important to understand exactly what these ratings mean to each individual user.
For example, a 4.0 for Aroma is probably what most people would consider to be the lowest threshold for a decent amount of potency. If you’re looking for something with a lower THC content, then this might be the kind of marijuana strain you want. However, if you want to get the most out of your high, you’ll want to look for something that’s closer to a 5.0 or 6.0. Remember, that rating doesn’t necessarily mean that the strain is extremely potent. It just means that it has a very strong, noticeable scent, which is more than likely going to give you a little buzz.
The same goes for the rest of the termsthat you’ve probably seen on the labels. For example, “High Quality Delta-8 flowers” means nothing at all unless you actually know what it means! The term is used by some growers to describe their product, but it’s not a standardized, regulated industry standard. In fact, it’s often completely meaningless. How do you know if you’re getting High Quality Flower? You don’t. That’s why the term is almost always used loosely, and people tend to use it interchangeably with other terms like “Quality Strain” or “Top Shelf”.
What you need to do instead is look for specific strains that contain a high percentage of cannabinoids. These are compounds that have been identified through scientific research as having psychoactive properties. These cannabinoids include THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol), CBN (cannabinol), THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) and CBC (cannabichromene). Each type of cannabinoid has its own unique effect on the human body, and knowing which one you’re looking for can make a huge difference in how you feel after smoking a particular strain.
The next thing you need to watch for is whether or not a strain has been genetically modified (GM). GM refers to strains that have been altered through selective breeding and/or genetic engineering. This process often results in greater yields, better flavors, less chance of mold growth, and a much higher content of cannabinoids. However, this also tends to increase the concentration of pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals.
You may be wondering why anyone would want a pesticide-free cannabis plant. Well, while some people prefer the taste and effects of a clean crop, others may not care about the flavor at all – they just want to get stoned! In this case, choosing a clean crop could save you money in the long run because you won’t have to buy additional filters. Plus, the smell of fresh cannabis is much more pleasant than the chemical stench of a pesticide-laden bud. If you’re going to smoke outdoors, you may want to invest in a filter to keep the smell down.
Next, you’ll want to check for mold. Mold is a fungus that grows on organic material, and it can wreak havoc on a crop if left unchecked. Most indoor growers use a variety of different methods to prevent mold from growing on their plants, including keeping them inside of climate controlled rooms, using air filters, and using sprays. Outdoor growers often have to deal with mold themselves, since they’re exposed to sunlight year round. To avoid mold, you’ll need to look for buds that are dark green and moist. These buds should be kept away from direct sunlight and protected from moisture.
Finally, you should try to avoid buying buds that are either overgrown or undergrown. When the plant becomes overgrown, it starts producing extra buds, causing the stem to stretch thin and eventually die. On the other hand, buds that grow too slowly are usually due to lack of nutrients. They may also be affected by pests, such as aphids or mites. As a result, they may not produce enough resin, which is the sticky substance that holds the plant together and provides the plant with energy.
So, now that you know how to find the best cannabis flower, you should be ready to hit the market! Just remember that there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when buying a cannabis flower, so don’t rush into purchasing anything that you see. Take your time and try out several different strains before deciding on one.
