What does it mean to find seeds in your marijuana buds? That means the seedy cannabis buds (which come from a female plant) may have come into contact with pollen from a male plant. Therefore, it’s possible the grower didn’t identify and remove all the male plants before the released pollen. It’s also possible that the plant self-pollinated (sometimes called herming) which is often the result of plant stress during the budding phase but can also be caused by genetics.

If it’s very seedy the buds may not feel as potent, though a few seeds here and there won’t make much difference in potency. The main problem with seedy weed is that you are getting less smokeable bud for the amount of total mass there. If it is seedless, you will get a lot more bang for your buck. Seedless bud (sinsemilla) is considered to be the highest quality and most potent type of weed. I’ve seen some growers get impressive results with bagseed, but overall results seem to be hit or miss. Plants can grow in odd ways and often either the yields or quality isn’t as expected. The problem is that seeds often don’t “breed true” to the buds that they came from. That is why many growers either stick to clones (which are exactly the same as the “mother” plant) or purchase seeds of a stabilized strain from a trustworthy breeder, where each of the plants will grow the way you expect, and buds more consistently have the smell, yield and potency they’re supposed to. Very pale or white seeds, that can be easily crushed between the fingers, usually won’t sprout.

However, I have been surprised to find some very flimsy seeds sprout and produce amazing plants (we aren’t breeding them for hard seeds after all) so when in doubt, I highly recommend doing the true test to see if the seed is viable – try to germinate the seed and see if it sprouts! How To Differentiate Good From Bad Quality Marijuana Buds. Cannabis quality is what differentiates you getting home, rolling up and having a smile, or coming home to realise you just wasted $50. Hopefully, you’re reading this before you’ve blazed on some bad-quality cannabis. We hope you’re not standing in front of your computer with an empty bowl, wondering why the weed didn’t hit. Whether you’re still in time to use this knowledge or not, your low-quality cannabis joints and bowls are a thing of the past. We’re here to teach you how to become an absolute pro when visually assessing your bud. First of all, there is no way you can evaluate your weed solely from visual cues. You need to smoke, vape or eat it in order to reach a conclusion. But there are several things to look out for that might help you when you call your weedman. If you’re lucky enough to already live in a place where a legal framework is established, you won’t need this article as much. You’ll only need to distinguish the good from the really good bud. You’ll probably never have to experience low-quality cannabis ever again. LOOKING INTO THAT “DIRTY SHWAG” Low-quality bud, most commonly referred to as “shwag,” “ditch weed,” and “brick weed,” is something to stay away from. This is the weed that will be a waste of money unless you’re smoking for the first time. You’ll probably be stuck with a harsh headache and sleepy vibes, but nothing else. To ease transportation within the black market, cannabis is many times compressed into bricks, leaving you with a lot of stems and leaves that will only ruin your joint. It’s probably not your first time buying cannabis, so you’re familiar with the visual weight. If the dealer gives you more than you expected, it’s probably not because he/she wants to be your friend. If the flower is lighter than usual, that is a sign of poor quality. They should be hard to squeeze and make a crunchy sound when done so. Be sure to feel your bud like your grandmother feels fruit at the market. Ideally, you’ll be able to pick it up, open the bag and have a real close look and feel of the flower before you take it home. If so, here is what to look for: When looking into your next baggie, be sure to examine the colour. This is probably one of the most important factors because the greenness will represent the healthiness of the plant.

Not only will it show how well-treated the plant was, it will also show you if the curing and drying process was well conducted. Good genetics is a key factor in obtaining quality bud, but growing the flower is only half the job. The rest of the effort must come from the grower after the harvest. When you see that the buds are too leafy, they weren’t cared for properly. So apart from paying more than what you’re actually going to smoke, it shows carelessness. Don’t buy your weed from someone who doesn’t care about it. If it doesn’t smell like weed, it’s not good flower. If the fragrance is not at all familiar, it won’t be a crazy, dank strain you never tried before. There are certain strains that have a very earthy smell, but it’s a weed-earthy aroma, not a soil-earth stink. “THAT DANK THO” Now here is the interesting checklist.

Good-quality bud, which your friends refer to as “dank,” “sticky icky,” “fire,” or even “loud,” is what you should be looking for. Besides the exact opposite of the points mentioned above, there are many characteristics of good weed that will make you loved by the squad when bringing it to the next smoke sesh.
