We all want to enjoy as soon as possible some delicious buds with a pleasant taste and full of THC, right?
Well, when choosing the flowers you are going to consume, it is ideal that you carry out a small test beforehand to avoid unpleasant surprises.
You see, when cannabis is poorly stored it can cause the buds to spoil. Therefore, analyzing them before consumption is essential.
Stay with us and see how you can use your senses to detect when your cannabis is old or stale.
Your senses are your best ally
To recognize when your buds are old, you won’t need anything more than yourself. Yes, that’s right, as we mentioned, your senses (sight, touch, smell, etc.) can be very useful for this.
For example, touch and sight will help you to make the first tests. A cannabis flower will be old or dried out when, when passing it between your fingers, it turns into dust with the minimum effort.
In addition, if to the touch you feel that your buds are wet or you observe that there are signs of mold, the best thing to do is to forget about them.
If you hear a crunchy sound when handling your flowers, it is also a sign that something is wrong.
The smell is also an aspect that you should take into account. When you pass your flowers through your nose, the aroma should be intense and penetrating, it can vary between fruity, pine or sweet fragrances, everything will depend on the variety of marijuana you choose. If you feel a rancid smell or that the use of pesticides has been abused, you must be alert.
Finally, if despite all the above tests you have not been able to identify if the cannabis is stale. You have one last sense to use taste. Yes, that’s right, you will see if your cannabis is worth it with just one puff.
