A Guide To Cannabis Flower

Weed Cannabis Flower

A Guide To Cannabis Flower

Cannabis flowers are the primary product of the cannabis plant and they come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. While there is a lot of science that goes into understanding cannabis flowers, this guide is meant to be an introduction to help you understand the basics. In it, we’ll cover what cannabis flowers are, their uses, and their different types. We hope you enjoy it!

What is Marijuana Flower?

The dried flower bud of a female cannabis plant is what we refer to when talking about marijuana. This powerful drug contains cannabinoids that help create psychoactive effects, as well as trichomes and terpenes which give it flavor profiles typically associated with oils found in the flowering process- but not always! Once harvested these buds may be dried, and prepared for sale at licensed dispensaries nationwide.

Types of Cannabis Flower

There are many different names for cannabis flowers, so we’ll just stick with what you can find at your local dispensary. First off there is a “loose flower”. This means that it’s only the buds themselves without any packing material or other additives like seeds etc.; secondly, most dispensaries sell three types: premium (longer smoke), popcorn(smaller burns) & shake which seem almost identical but have much less THC than others.


Premium cannabis is the most expensive type of weed on dispensary menus. It’s full-bodied and packed with flavor, typically found at the end of plant stems where it receives tons of nutrients which give this bud its rich trichomes as well as varied terpenes like myrcene or limonene that give off different smells depending upon the variety used for production purposes!


The smaller but mighty version of the cannabis flower that grows beneath premium buds is called popcorn. Popcorn has a kernel-sized shape and it’s usually found in psychedelic or hybrid strains because they don’t produce as many trichomes as regular marijuana plants do which means their flavor might not be quite up there with what you would get from high-quality buds.


Shake is the most popular form of cannabis. This loose material can be made up of multiple different plants packaged together or used in pre-rolls, edibles, and concentrates.


Flower potency varies from strain to strain and even within a single variety. The number of milligrams (mg) per gram can be an indication of how strong your product might feel when consuming it, but many other factors determine the intensity such as climate conditions or time since harvesting.

The potency of a raw flower product label is indicated by the notation of 10%. This means that for every gram (mcg) there is 100 mg of THC. If you buy 3.5 grams at this level, it will last about as long as most smokers’ sessions!
