To reap the most benefits and avoid wasting your money and potentially experiencing some harsh side effects, make sure you always purchase high-quality weed. Keep reading to learn where you can get high-quality weed online and at physical dispensaries.

How to Tell if Your Weed is High Quality

There are many common misconceptions about what makes weed either bad or good quality. For example, some say that buds with an off-putting smell are low quality, but this isn’t true. The type of smell has nothing to do with quality.

Not all beliefs on quality are fiction, and you should familiarize yourself with the facts before your next re-up.

Here is what to look for. 

Aroma and Flavor

High-quality weed will have a strong aroma. It doesn’t matter if the scent is fruity, woody, or smells like week-old leftovers. If you open a jar of weed and it feels like the scent just hit you in the face, you’re in for a treat. 

Additionally, your bud should have a rich and complex flavor. Buds can taste piney, fruity, sweet, and more, but they should never taste like burnt chemicals; If it does, it likely contains fertilizer that was not flushed out properly. 


When you look at cannabis, the buds should have amber, orange or brown trichomes; this indicates that the plant was harvested when fully mature. Good quality weed will also have few or no seeds and stems, and the color of weed ash will be white and powdery.

It would also be a good idea to look for signs of mold and spider mites. Moldy weed may have fuzzy white, blue, green, or even brown patches, and weed with spider mites will have cobwebs or little white dots.

Consistency and Feel

When it comes to the physical feeling of weed, you should look for sticky buds because it has a higher cannabinoid content. 

What you don’t want is dry buds that crumble apart easily.


The last thing you should look at is the manufacturing and harvest itself. High-quality weed will be grown outside in pesticide-free farms.

When you look at buds in the dispensary, check the harvest date on the bag. Opt for the buds with the most recent dates, and you will receive the freshest products.
