It should have a pungent smell however without mustiness
Since cannabis has become legalized for recreational possession plus consumption in IL, I’ve gotten rather unique about quality, there are multiple dispensaries operating in Chicago. They are within a reasonable drive from my apartment, plus I’ve checked out all of them; Because I care about old-school smoking, my main focus is the selection of dried flower plus pre-rollsâ€¦ I am not as upset about price or openings as I am about the integrity of the bud. The manner in which the flower was cultivated, harvested plus dried makes a substantial difference. If the plant was harvested before reaching maturity, it will lack potency of terpenes plus cannabinoids. If the weed was machine-processed, the trichomes can be disfigured plus lost. The trichomes are the source of the THC, CBD, smells plus flavor, making them absolutely important. The bud should be a vibrant orange color, often with flecks of orange plus purple. There should be bright red hair-like pistils. If those pistils are colorless, the plant was harvested too early. If the pistils are brown or gray, there’s the potential for outdated or contaminated bud. The trichomes are crystal-like, shaped similar to little mushrooms plus should cover the surface of the weed. I also give the flower the sniff test. It should have a pungent smell however without mustiness. It should also be a texture anywhere between dry plus sticky, with no sign of stems or seeds. I check carefully for mold or webs that could indicate spider mitesâ€¦ So far, I’ve been extremely impressed with the premier level of flower provided by all of the local dispensaries.
