From the Hindu god Shiva to psychiatric researchers, a lot of people think that weed can be good for you. Smoking up can be relaxing as well, but do you know how to identify good weed from the bad kind?
If the answer is no, worry not; it's pretty easy. There are a few things to look out for when choosing your weed to make sure you have a good time.
Take A Whiff
One of the best indicators of good weed is its scent. High-quality stuff usually has that strong, unmistakable scent. As the wise hip-hop lyricist Ski Mask the Slump God once said,
Weed deadass smell like a fart, mm.
On the other hand, poor or adulterated weed may have a weak or chemical scent that you should definitely avoid. I knew someone who got some pot only for it to smell suspiciously like oregano, only to have a terrible experience afterwards. So yeah, you don't want that.
What Good Weed Looks Like
Green. Very green. Colour is one of the most important signifiers; if the marijuana looks brown, red, yellow, or bleached, leave it alone. Undertones of colour are fine, but the green shade should be very, very visible.
If the weed looks especially loose or open, with a lot of visible stems, it's probably nor been grown poorly. A ton of stems also means that you're getting less bang for your buck, as it's the buds that actually produce the high. There shouldn't too many leaves either; a few are fine, but make sure you remove them while cleaning and rolling your joint. (You do clean your weed before smoking right?)
Another important aspect is identifying trichomes and mould. Trichomes are good; mould, however, is a big no-no. Mould appears powdery, has smaller particles, while trichomes have a frosty, crystalline appearance on top of the bud. A lot of trichomes means good weed. Mould means it's time to find a new dealer.
While this list is not exhaustive, these are some of the key things to watch out for before smoking anything. If your weed fits the above criteria, you're probably good to go. Stay safe, and blaze it.
