Have you ever waited all week for the weekend to arrive only to find out your dealer sold you poor quality weed? These steps can help you tell the difference between "dirt weed" and "kind bud."
Smell the weed before buying. If the weed smells grassy, it's probably bad and you should hand it back.
Make sure the weed is dry and sticky. Wet weed has to dry before it can be smoked and you end up actually buying less than you thought, since about 70 percent of wet weed is water.
Examine the weed closely. It should be free of stems and seeds. Also look for red or bronze hairs. The hairs mean the plant is female and therefore more potent. The color indicates the plant was picked at the proper time.
Test a sample of the weed and see if the high you get is the high you want. A reputable dealer won't mind giving you a sample of the product. If he refuses, then he can't be trusted and you should take your business elsewhere.
