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. Shwag usually smells very earthy and farm-like. There are certain strains that have a very earthy smell, but it’s a weed-earthy aroma, not a soil-earth stink.
Potency does not equal quality. CBD-rich strains without THC won’t get you high, but can be of excellent quality and value. Remember to have clear guidelines on what you’re looking for. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to choose between indicas, sativas and hybrids, research these variations well. Learn all about them and the manifold strains within each group. You might be sold an indica when you actually asked for a sativa and end up disappointed on the effects, judging the strain. Be sure that you can trust your supplier – we can’t stress this enough.
TRICHOMES AND RESIN – WHAT YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR
When the bag is first opened, the smell should hit you right away. If you need to put your nose inside the baggie in a closed room, you already know it’s not worth smelling. A great weed will leave your mouth watering until you roll it up. Different strains have different smells, but they all have that sweet hint of familiarity. Try to always smell your bud and remember the aroma if you enjoyed the smoke. This will help you in the future. Your brain will create a stoner database of “dank smells.”
Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of cannabis phenotypes, which sometimes means, under the form of clones (or “cuts”). Clones are incredibly important to the facilitation of genetic preservation, but successfully cloning a cannabis plant requires following a few important steps, that we’ll try to cover in this article. The process of cloning can be a controversial one, as there is a variety of methods you can use. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, or simply paraphrase the already existing knowledge on the topic, we’ll try to aggregate a handful of the many available sources within this article, thus allowing you to get the basics, do your homework and plan your cloning project a bit before jumping in.
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. The same happens with trimming. When you see that the buds are too leafy, they weren’t cared for properly. Leaves don’t get you high. 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.
Additionally, every long-time grower will tell you that clones degrade over time.
You can also minimize headaches and avoid the hassle of seed germination and sexing plants by starting with clones.
What are autoflowering cannabis seeds?
Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. There are many methods to germinate seeds, but for the most common and simplest method, you will need:
One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.
So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.
