Knowing the difference between dank and bunk weed is very important. Bad quality weed can actually do you harm, as it might contain pesticides.

The importance of knowing good quality weed
Crutch 420 was inspired to make this video after going to smoke with some friends, but the weed didn’t look right or smell right.
It’s important to know the difference between good quality weed and bad quality weed. If you smoke bad quality weed you can really hurt yourself.
1. Look for crystals
The biggest giveaway to how high your weed will get you is the amount of crystals/trichomes it has. The more crystals you can see, the higher the THC content.
2. Color of the weed
Good quality weed should be green, with some flecks of orange, and sometimes some purple. Brown weed is bad weed. It could contain mold, pesticides, and chemical so don’t smoke it.
3. Orange hair count
A lot of orange hairs means your plant was well pollinated and is a matured plant. If you see these hairs then you know you’re in the company of some good weed.
4. Sticky icky icky
Weed should be a good mix of not too wet, and not too dry. It should be a bit sticky, though, as if weed is too dry it will burn too fast. Make sure you store your weed properly to prevent it from drying out.

5. Seeds and stems
There should be the bare minimum sticks to hold bud together, no more. And definitely no seeds as they’re associated with bad weed. You want fresh and thick buds.
6. Trim job
While this doesn’t affect smoke, you don’t want to see too many extra leaves.
You know the distinct smell of cannabis should have a fresh spunkiness. You can smell really dank bud through the bag. Bunk weed smells like hay so avoid it and remember,
If it don’t smell like weeed, don’t smoke it.
Good weed tastes fresh. If it tastes off, it’s bad weed and you shouldn’t smoke it.
9. Spider mites
Beware spider mites! Look out for thin white hairs, like a spider web. Pull it out when you see it.
11. The experience
If you’re new and you don’t know what weed should smell or taste like, smoke with people that know, who won’t screw you over. Unfortunately, a shitty dealer means shitty bud. Try to use a recommended supplier.
