    How exactly do you know, if it's good strong weed? Is it because it smells good or that you can smell it?? Or can you not tell at all??

    Hey


    The simplest rule i've always gone by is that if its smells strong it cant be bad. Without going into detail look for some nice DRY bud, the more crystally the better with a nice strong smell!!





    Hope this helps, there are more detailed ways to tell however!!

    Yeah pretty much LOL! generally, in my experience strong weed has a lovely strong smell, the sort of smell that a little bit of clingfilm cant disguise! We got some once which smelt so strong we had to put in in a container to get it home on the boat! *good times* lol

    Good weed has a distinctive floral aroma when wet
    and dry.

    Once dried, good weed will be dificult to break up
    because it is so sticky; try to cut it with a pair of small
    scissors and it will leave residue on the blades.

    When burning, it should be uniquely pungent almost
    like a mild incense.

    When you get all three traits in your weed, it shouldn't
    take much more than 2-3 hits to feel it.

    Shouldn't think so. If they do then they're probably trying to rip you off. Be careful.

    if you want to be really preicise then get your self a small microscope/magneifing glass and enspect the buds carfully and check for crstyals and resin glands and if there not covering the whole buds then its probably not that great weed,the only way to know for sure is to blast ona bit of it[​IMG]

    There are crystals and resin glands on weed? So I'm guessing, that makes it better to smoke...

    if u smell the weed in front of the dealer then that means u know what your doing. of course the first thing u do is see if your "twenty" sak or whatever is actually a 20 then u smell it for quantity if theres enough light then see if theres red hairs. thats the first sign on good kill. next is if its all flaky and dry the its mersh shit. but dont get confused cause alot of dealers compress there weed which dries it and packs it dead tight. the number one rule is "if the weed is brown, turn it down." dont know where i saw that in... but it is soo true.. post if you know were that quote came from

    Hey.
    Here's my hints for finding out if your weed is good or not.

    Check for crystals and hairs, if it has loads of crystals then buy it.
    Check the weed, by rubbing a tiny bit between your fingers and take a deep smell, you'll know it it's good
    Also checking the stems (there might be one or two in sight) can tell you if it's good. Again just look at the quality of it. If it looks dead or not great then be warned

    The mids and bunk have seeds and is a darker shade of green (kind of brown/green). The kind bud and hydro are a brighter shade of green, with some red tendrils and no seeds.

    If it is seedy, then it is bad weed, if it is nice nugs with a few seeds thats some good mids, if it is nice nugs with red and green with no seeds, thats what I like best.

    as said before, smell it. i often find that if it is a little sticky to the touch its quite good.

    Some good signs include red or sometimes blue or white hairs, crystals, the more the better, strong smell and sticky feeling or "juicy".
