What Is Cannabis or Marijuana Flower?
Marijuana flower – cannabis that is consumed by smoking – is a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers. It’s usually smoked as a cigarette (joint) or in a pipe or bong.
Marijuana plants grow from the ground up to about 16 feet tall. There are three different cannabis strains that all come from the cannabis species cannabis sativa, cannabis Indica, and hybrid cannabis. Cannabis Sativa is responsible for creating a head high; it has uplifting effects on the mind and creates an energetic buzz in the user. It’s usually known for making its users crave physical activity or social interaction. Cannabis Indica strains are known for creating a body high; it has effects that are depressant and relaxing on the mind, which leads to intense feelings of happiness or euphoria. Hybrid marijuana strains provide both head and body highs; their effects vary depending on the strain of cannabis that it originated from (Cannabis sativa or cannabis Indica). When buying weed, you want to consider flower strains that have the effects you’re looking for.
What Makes Good Cannabis?
Good cannabis refers to marijuana that is of high quality. There are many factors that contribute to cannabis being good, namely potency, terpene profile, entourage effect, and resistance to molds or pests. For cannabis to be potent, it must contain at least 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In some strains, the THC level is much, much higher. When the THC level is below 0.3% then you have a CBD flower or CBD strains of marijuana.
Resistance to molds or pests means that the cannabis is not coated with any pesticides or other harmful chemicals that will negatively impact the user’s health, affecting their ability to fight off any infections or diseases they may develop.
Good cannabis also tastes good- users who report smoking cannabis flower can expect different flavors depending on the strain they choose. Flavonoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes all play a role in the entourage effect you can expect to enjoy from great cannabis. One of these strains might be lemon drop; this strain has a tart lemon taste on the exhale, with an earthy cannabis flavor on the inhale.
When cannabis has been dried and cured properly, the flower is ready to be smoked. Trichomes are a cannabis flower’s resin glands that appear as crystalline or frosty white hairs coating the cannabis plant. It’s important to inspect flowers for trichomes before smoking- this is a good indicator of potency and the flower’s resistance to pests.
When cannabis flower isn’t bought directly from the farmer, dispensaries package cannabis flower to sell it to consumers. It’s important to inspect cannabis flower for mold and mildew before making a purchase. The cannabis flower should be dry with no signs of dampness or discoloration (mold).
Types of Cannabis Flower
There are many types of cannabis and hemp flowers that can be bought from dispensaries depending on the state you live in, though cannabis flower is most commonly found in cannabis dispensaries. Some strains that you might find at a dispensary include:
- Lemon Skunk (Cannabis Sativa) has a strong lemon scent and flavor on the exhale, with cannabis flavor on the inhale. Its uplifting effects make it useful for treating symptoms of depression or anxiety; it also gives users a boost of energy for physical activity.
- White Widow (Cannabis Indica) has a cannabis flavor on the exhale, with a strong cannabis taste on the inhale. Its more powerful sedating effects make it useful for treating symptoms of chronic pain or insomnia.
- Green Crack (Cannabis Sativa) has a cannabis taste on the exhale, with citrus flavors on the inhale. This cannabis strain is more energizing and uplifting than other cannabis strains due to its cannabis sativa lineage, making it suitable for users who want a mental high without being too lethargic or tired. It also provides pain relief for those suffering from conditions such as arthritis or multiple sclerosis.
- Cherry Pie (Hybrid cannabis) has a sweet and tart cherry flavor on the exhale, with cannabis flavor on the inhale. Its cannabis effects bring about feelings of happiness and euphoria; it also enhances the senses and brings energy to its users. Cherry Pie is useful for treating symptoms of insomnia or depression.

Storing Your Cannabis Flower
The last thing you want to happen after you get home with your high quality cannabis is for it to go bad. Thankfully, it’s relatively easy to make sure your weed stays fresh for consumption. The most important step is to make sure cannabis flower is stored in a cool, dry place so it will keep longer. Cannabis, like medicine, decreases in potency when exposed to high temperatures or humidity. This is why keeping it in a cool, dry place is so important. Storing it this way also keeps it less susceptible to mold due to bacterial growth, which would make your marijuana less effective for both recreational and medical purposes.
How to Use Cannabis Flower
Use cannabis flower by smoking it in a pipe, bowl, or joint. These methods of cannabis consumption create marijuana smoke, which is then inhaled and absorbed through the consumer’s lungs and bronchial passages. Inhalation is one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis due to its quick effects on the consumer; these effects typically last 2-3 hours.
The hardest part about using cannabis flower is deciding how much you want to use and when you want to use it. Indica cannabis flowers have a sedating effect and make you feel physically relaxed; this makes them good for relaxation in the evening and at night. Sativa cannabis flowers have an energizing effect; use this cannabis flower to stay focused and motivated throughout the day.
The cannabis dispensary at Burnt River Farms will be able to help you decide on the quantity that’s right for you. The cannabis dispensary experts will also help you determine cannabis consumption frequency, whether it’s for one-time use or daily consumption.
If needed, cannabis can be used in recipes such as brownies and drinks. It can also be added to food and eaten in order to get the cannabis effects without smoking. Marijuana is most commonly baked into brownies, muffins, and cupcakes. It can also be added to drinks such as tea. This may not sound appetizing to some people, but cannabis can also be added to a large variety of recipes from pasta dishes to stir-fry recipes. This is another way cannabis flower can be consumed without smoking it.
An important thing to keep in mind when cooking cannabis is that consuming it as an edible won’t have immediate effects, but it will offer long-term cannabis effects on your overall physical and mental health without the harmful side effects of tobacco smoking.
Cannabis Flower for Medical Purposes
The medical benefits of cannabis flower are significant. Cannabis can be used to treat a variety of health conditions. This is why you hear about so many people using medical marijuana. For example, cannabis is well-known for its ability to reduce nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy treatments, ease chronic pain from nerve damage, arthritis and many other reasons, improve appetite in people who have trouble eating due to nausea or other problems associated with their health condition and reduce seizures in people with epilepsy.
Flowers are produced from female cannabis plants, which contain the cannabinoids responsible for the plant’s well-known health benefits. Cannabis flowers that come from quality cannabis plants that are primarily Indica cannabis plants tend to have higher levels of THC, which means they provide the characteristic weed “high.” Sativa cannabis flowers tend to have higher levels of cannabidiol (CBD), which is why they may not provide cannabis consumers with as much of that marijuana “high” feeling.
