10 Ways to Identify Good Weed

At Canna Wholesalers, we’re so proud of our premium quality BC weed; we want to make sure that you can recognize it. This is important for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is your health. That’s right, by smoking bad quality weed, you can harm your health. There are risks associated with mould, pesticides, and mites, among other hazards.

So, you’ve embarked on an extensive selection process; you’ve done researched and determined your personal preferences. You have settled on your preferred strain, you have chosen an online dispensary–one that must be reliable and consistent, and you have decided how you want to consume your cannabis. After all of that, is the cannabis used high-quality or low-quality? How can you tell? Here is a helpful list of 10 basic ways you can quickly determine if you have good weed.

There Are 10 Ways to Know

1. Colour

Fresh, high-quality weed should be green, with bits of oranges, reds, blues and purples. If your cannabis is brown, that’s a bad sign. It means that your weed could have mould, pesticides and who knows what else.

2. Smell

Another obvious giveaway is the smell. It shouldn’t smell like hay. It should smell spicy and fresh. When you open the container, the smell should fill the room. If it doesn’t have that pungent, tangy bud smell, you should probably pass.

3. Crystals

Trichomes are jewel-like crystals that cover the flower or bud. This indicates how potent the weed is, how much THC is in the flower and how high you’ll get. This is probably the most obvious sign of cannabis potency and quality.

4. Taste

Good Indica will have a taste of chocolatey bitterness. Sativa will have a citrus flavour. Either one should include a freshness to the flavour.

5. Feel

Good marijuana should be sticky but not wet. It should stick to your fingers when you handle it. That is a sign of freshness. If it is properly cured, it is in the “goldilocks zone”– not too dry and not too wet… just right.

6. Seeds and Stems… Again?

Look closely. If there are any seeds, stems and sticks in the weed, don’t buy it. And if you did, get your money back. It should be all bud, another easy way to tell right away if your receiving quality weed.

7. Trimmed

This is #6 taken further. If you are receiving the bud’s best, it shouldn’t have loose leaves and, that’s right, no stems! Trimming is a sign that the grower and the dispensary care about the end product.

8. Contaminants

This is when all of the senses come into play. Scrutinize your weed. If something looks a little off or smells a little off, consider that a red flag. Look for Mould or little bugs before you buy. If you see little fine white webbing, that is most likely spider mites.

9. Lab-Tested

If you purchase only lab-tested products, you have the best chance of getting quality. It may not always be possible, but if you can find a source that maintains that they use no pesticides and other contaminants, or they state clearly that it is 100% organically grown, like say… Canna Wholesalers, for example, then there is an excellent chance that the cannabis will be high quality.

10. Orange Hairs

A well-pollinated cannabis plant produces buds with little orange hairs. That’s high-quality cannabis. If your cannabis has orange hairs, it is in great shape and properly grown.

If you order your weed from Canna Wholesalers, the best dispensary in Canada, which includes places like Mississauga, you are assured of quality. If your consumption option involves concentrates, extracts and edibles, you need to know that the cannabis used was high quality, pure, and free of contaminants. The best way to do that is to choose the most trusted online dispensary in Canada, Canna Wholesalers.
