I think being able to choose a strain of cannabis just by looks and smell is a superpower. Since I don’t have any superpowers, I’ve tried to find other ways to judge pot. One sign of an awesome strain is the amount of resin that ends up on your fingertips while cleaning it.
Resin: a sticky flammable organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants (notably fir and pine).
I call this “sticky” bud. To remove the resin, I have to wash my hands twice. (Twice!) It’s hard to find sticky bud like this, and it appears to be rare, at least in my neck of the woods.
It’s time to thank Mother Nature again for creating such a perfect plant. 🙂
