High Quality Weed? 5 Signs Your Bud Is Top Notch


In 2018, the Farm Bill legalized cannabis with less than .2% THC. In 2019, the WHO suggested that cannabis get reclassified under international law.

Now that it’s 2020, the next question is — will cannabis get legalized on a recreational level? Some states have already made the move to decriminalize marijuana possession. If you’re in one of those areas, then you’ve likely got access to better weed.

So, how can you tell the difference between high quality weed and subpar marijuana? Read on to learn five things to look for to ensure you’re getting quality marijuana.

  1. Aroma & Taste

Have you ever heard the term ‘dirt’ weed? Subpar marijuana has a low-quality taste and smell. To be honest, it tastes and smells like dirt, hence the name.

Good marijuana, though, will smell good. When inhaled, it should taste smooth and not earthy. In 2020, you’ve likely encountered some weed with fruity names. They get those names because of their awesome smells and tastes.

  1. Vivid Colors

Does your weed look dull, brown, and well…like a weed? If so, then it’s low-quality. Good cannabis will at least be a vivid green. If you see some purple or orange flakes, then you’re in for a good time.

Otherwise, it may be best to pass. Brown or black cannabis is not only subpar, but it could be moldy, too.

  1. Stems and Seeds

At the end of the day, cannabis is a plant. That means the delightful herb isn’t the only part produced by the plant. There’s also stems and seeds.

High quality weed won’t be full of stems and seeds. That’s because growers are careful to remove females from males. If the sexes stay together, your good bud will produce seeds. Click here for more information about seedy weed and how to avoid it.

Stems also won’t get found in a good weed bag. They have no purpose other than to add weight to your bag.

  1. Crystals Galore

You’ve seen the good weed in magazines — it’s full of beautiful crystals. Those shiny flakes are more than for looks. They’re called trichomes, and more trichomes means more THC.

  1. It’s Never Bricked

Like dirt weed, you may have heard the term brick weed, too. Brick weed is compact and compressed for easy transportation. Most of this type of weed is grown in an illegal manner. That’s why they compact it; they do so for easy transport.

In most cases, this type of weed comes from Mexico. That’s not a bad thing, but it usually means it will be subpar.

High Quality Weed in 2020 and Beyond

In 2020, high quality weed means more than a good high. It means getting the medicinal value you expect out of some good herb. If you’re ready to feel relaxed and pain-free, then make sure your bud has the above five qualities.
