I recently was talking with a friend who smokes marijuana recreationally. He was going on and on about how he gets his stuff, and that is the best. I asked him if I could take a look at what he had.

I was throughly shocked at what I saw.

Upon looking closely at his nugs, I saw that the weed almost had a crummy brown look to it, with an almost horrible smell and lots of seeds and stems.

My buddy wanted to smoke with me, and in an effort not to be rude, I complied.

This was without a doubt the worst smoke I have ever had in my life. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I would say that this stuff wasn’t even weed. It was low potency and just not a good experience. I could tell that my friend needed to get an education to just what good weed is, and that is why I decided to inform him on what is what.

Good weed should have a green color to it. Even with the Purps and blue variations of the stuff, green is always a part of a good nugget. Seeds and stems are also going to be part of any marijuana that you get, but this should be kept to a minimum.

The stuff should also have a decent smell to it, unless you going with skunk (in which it will smell awful).

When smoking, good weed will have a real flavor, with a good body to the smoke, and will not impart a harshness to you. Highs will also be more pronounced with good weed, and you will be less likely to get a headache or any other negative effects that you would from bad stuff.

I offered to help my friend find good stuff, and then showed him what I had in my home stash. He was amazed to see the difference between the crap he was getting and the good bud I was consuming.

What is the lesson we learn from this? Learn the difference between good stuff and bad stuff. You will spend a little more up front on good weed, but in the long run you will get much better value.

You get what you pay for.
