what bad weed looks like

What does bad weed look like?

Did anyone see Reggie? If you answered yes, stay away from it. Reggie is a term for bad weed or low-quality weed. It is smoke-able but only as a last resort would you want to use it. It will be very harsh on the lungs, very dry and seedy. You might even confuse it with grass cuttings, the kind of grass on your lawn. You will not notice any little hairs like you see on quality buds. Like I mentioned before you can smoke it, but you will have seeds popping while you smoke, not my cup of tea, but the choice is up to you. Here are some other names that will indicate that the weed you have is of low quality.

Schwag, ditch weed, brick bud and shake.

Good weed vs bad weed

No real buzz off this one for sure. If you are a regular smoker, you probably won’t get anything off this weed. For the beginner, you may notice a little feeling of relaxation.

The taste is not going to be the best. If skunky and very harsh are your favorite smoke, enjoy my friend. It’s not going to be the worst taste but no hints of citrus or pine for example in this one.

Effects from Reggie may be instant but relatively mild, and you will enjoy the munchies effect with this one, keep the chip bowl close.

So, Reggie may fit the need for a mild relaxing end of the day. But if its medical strains you are looking for, sorry keep looking this is not the way to go.

Now let’s compare dense weed, high quality weed and good weed

The feeling from this weed is top notch. You will be totally relaxed with this, and at the same time, your pain will diminish considerably.

The taste will be enjoyable, depending on the strain you might enjoy spicy or lemony components.

The effects will be fast hitting and powerful. You will feel giggly and nice probably for a couple of hours. Because of its high potency, people use it medicinally. THC levels around 34%.

Fake weed nugs

Fake weed nugs are not marijuana and can go by several different names. K2 or synthetic marijuana and spice, just to name a few different titles for fake weed nugs. The effects from this fake weed nug can include confusion, rapid heartbeats and vomiting. One may think that because the name of the product includes the word marijuana, that it is the same as the real bud, it is not, and it can be dangerous to those that use it. Remember this is a synthetic manufactured product, if you are not sure that your weed is natural, take time to look at the basics. Does it look like regular weed you have purchased before; does it smell like weed or does it smell like chemicals? If your conclusion is that it meets the requirements of being a fake weed nug don’t use it. Hallucinations from using the fake nugs have been reported along with terrible headaches.

Not me my friend, I will stick with the natural plant, how about you?

Is your marijuana bad? 5 ways to tell if you’re smoking terrible weed

While many Americans can now buy and grow marijuana legally — choosing from an endlessly varied selection of premium bud — some still have to take it wherever they can find it. Even U.S. government researchers are forced to work with terrible weed.

You don’t want to get ripped off and smoke an inferior product, of course. So how can you tell if your flower isn’t up to snuff (or puff)? Believe it or not, you don’t need a doctorate in botany or chromatography instruments to tell whether your stash is shit. Read on, dear stoner, and learn some simple warning signs.В

1. It’s full of stems and seeds В В

A good rule of thumb in buying weed is that you want weed you can actually, uh, smoke. The stems of cannabis plants — though they may count toward the weight of your gram or eighth — are pretty much useless in that regard, so the less there are, the better. Seeds are even worse; they’ll literally explode when set on fire, potentially blowing out an entire bowl or ruining your joint. Even sellers of low-grade ganja usually won’t sell you stuff with seeds in it, but if you’re continually finding a few in each bag, it’s time to find a new source.

2. Its color, scent, texture and flavor seem off

In this sense, marijuanaВ is like any produce you might buy at the grocery store: You can just tellВ when it’s healthy and ripe for consumption. Good weed has more vibrant color, like a thriving plant. It has a heady, pungent aroma and taste. It’s somewhat springy, dense and coated with sticky, frosty, crystalline trichomes — tiny glands packed with THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that gets you high. Bad weed, by comparison, looks like some junk you yanked out from underneath your lawnmower. It’s paler or duller in color, sometimes brown or yellowish. It’s often dry or more crumbly, and it lacks a distinctive smell (although sometimesВ it smells like hay orВ grass). It’s also sure to taste terrible. In certain cases, this kind of marijuanaВ may have been “blasted,” or entirely stripped of its cannabinoids to make butane hash oil. Either way, avoid it. В В

3. It doesn’t get you high — or makes you feel ill

Arguably the worst thing about bad pot is that it’s not very potent — which means you have to smoke a ton of it to feel anything like the high you’re after. In that case, you’re liable to get a headache before you’re even halfway stoned. Some users have encountered weed so crummy that it doesn’t seem to work at all. If you wind up with bud that only produces noxious smoke and induces a general nausea or cranial pain, what’s the point? Ditch that garbage and find out where the dank nugs are at — because you deserve better. В В В

4. It’s moldy, rotting or poorly cultivated

As with the food in your pantry or refrigerator, you’ve got to keep an eye out for mold and rot. These can afflict even decent marijuana, and they look like the mold and rot you’re used to finding on bread or cheese — furry discolorations on the surface. Packing this crap in your bong can make you seriously sick,В don’t risk it. Another visual red flag would be larger marijuanaВ leaves attached to your nugs, which indicates a sloppy “trim” when the buds were separated from the plant. Cannabis that gets trimmed by machines (as opposed to carefully trimmed by hand) may have diminished potency, as the trichomes are disturbed, and the leaves themselves don’t offer muchВ of the cannabinoid compounds that people prize in marijuana. В В В

5. It’s not actually marijuana

Almost every stoner of experience you’ll meet has a story about the time they bought weed that turned out to be anything but. It could be anything from crushed oregano to sage to basil to a wad of old, dried-out lettuce balled up in some cling wrap. Catnip is another popular pot substitute. If it doesn’t look like marijuanaВ buds, well, it’s probably not, so keep your wits about you. The best way to avoid this scam is to get your weed from someone you trust — and never, ever that friend who runs a YouTube prank channel. If he really insists it’s the good stuff, then he should have no trouble taking the first hit, right? В В В В
