You are ready to experiment with cannabis and take a stab at smoking it. Before lighting anything up, though, let's discuss what you can smoke and how you can smoke it.
You can't have a discussion about smoking cannabis without bringing up flower. What exactly is flower, and how does it relate to smoking cannabis? When we talk about flower, it references the smokable trichome-enriched part of the cannabis plant. When you are face to face with cannabis flower, there are various physical factors that will clue you in on the quality.
High-quality flower gives off a strong yet aromatic scent. This scent is due to the coating of the trichome. You may encounter fragrances such as sweet, citrus, or skunk. While you're browsing your options in a dispensary, take notice of not just the aromas but also how the flower appears. Superior cannabis flower rich with trichomes is a sight of beauty and like nothing you've ever seen. It has a twinkling sparkle with bright and colorful pink, blue, purple, and orange hues. If a scent or color strikes you as exciting and raises any questions, don't forget your budtender is there, ready to answer any questions, especially about strength and potency.
