In the past, I’ve tried to save a little currency by purchasing lower quality cannabis flower, then i noticed that about half of the tote was little more than flakes and scraps of weed.
- I’ve splurged on top-shelf bud and discovered that after I’d smoked most of it, there were bits and pieces left at the bottom of the package.
While those leftovers are somewhat dried out and entirely not the premium compounds of the flower, they can still be rolled up in a joint or packed into a bowl, the potency is usually lower, the flavor somewhat rougher, although I can get a high off it. The combination of stems, leaves and segments of the plant that fall off or cut away and get left behind are called shake. There are cannabis connoisseurs who wouldn’t even consider smoking shake. There are people who buy shake without realizing it. The more affordable pre-roll joints and blinds are often made from shake. It’s a lot appreciate usual bud that has been put through a grinder. I buy our cannabis from a recreational dispensary in Denver. Along with the better quality flower, they also offer a variety of shake at a discount price. There’s no seeds, and while I can’t be picky about the strain, it saves me quite a bit of currency. It’s best to consume the shake right away because it only gets worse with age, then once the shake is no longer fantastic enough to roll up into a joint, I extract the THC and make cannabutter out of it. I can then make our own edibles.
