Not all cannabis strains are equally impressive. Did you know the loud weed?
Loud? aren’t we talking about a plant? How can a plant be loud? Well, have you ever smelled or inhaled a cannabis strain that makes you stand still and say “wow”?
Not all cannabis strains are equally impressive, but there are certainly some with loud personalities. Here’s what loud weed means and why some strains have more presence than others.
Yes, we’re still talking about the weed we know and love. Simply put, referring to weed as “loud” is essentially stating that it is exceptionally potent and possesses a remarkably strong odor. This type of weed is known for its high quality and its ability to induce more intense and rapid effects compared to “normal” weed.
You know your bud is loud when you smell it and feel as if the flower is screaming at your nose. Loud is a slang term for an extremely potent, pungent, high-quality cannabis flower. The term loud can also be used to describe a bud or concentrate that produces fast and noticeably strong effects.
The term “loud weed” is a slang term used in the cannabis community to describe high-quality, high-potency cannabis. It is a term that has gained popularity, especially in certain areas, such as Atlanta. Loud weed is known for its potent aroma and notoriously strong and fast-acting effects.
One of the most famous strains associated with this term is Loud Dream. This sativa strain is famous in the cannabis industry for selling illicitly for $800 an ounce. With a fast, energetic high and THC levels between 26-28%, it’s no wonder this strain is in high demand. Loud Dream hits like a double espresso.
When it comes to categorizing cannabis strains, they can generally be classified into three main groups: “reggies”, “beasters” and “loud”.
Reggies (Brick Weed): This type of marijuana is of low quality and is usually dull green or brown in color. It may contain stems and seeds and is generally the cheapest and lowest quality variety.
Beasters: These cannabis strains are considered to be of intermediate quality. They generally have fewer seeds or stems than brick weed, and offer a variety of flavors and effects. They also tend to have higher THC concentrations, which can range from 15% to 20%.
Loud: Known for its potent aroma, intensity, and effects, loud weed is a high-quality marijuana strain. It is commonly described as a hybrid strain that produces effects such as laughter, drowsiness, or lively conversation. Its aroma resembles citrus, pineapple, and skunk, with an underlying taste of herbs and eucalyptus.
Cannabis strains that are “louder” or have a more potent aroma and effects are usually due to a combination of several factors:
Genetics: the genetics of the cannabis plant play a crucial role in its aroma and effect profile. Some strains are naturally more aromatic and potent due to their inherent genetic characteristics.
Cultivation: The way cannabis is grown can influence its quality and potency. Advanced cultivation techniques, such as selecting high-quality strains, optimizing nutrients, and managing light and water, can produce more potent plants.
Harvesting and curing: The timing of harvest and the curing process are also critical. Harvesting at the right time and curing the buds properly allows aromatic compounds, such as terpenes, to develop and intensify.
Cannabinoid concentration: Loud cannabis strains often have higher concentrations of cannabinoids, such as THC.
Terpenes: Terpenes are aromatic compounds that contribute to the aroma and effects of cannabis. Some strains have unique terpene profiles that can make them particularly fragrant and potent.
The effects of a “loud” strain of cannabis can vary depending on the specific genetics of the strain and each person’s individual tolerance. However, in general, loud strains tend to produce more potent and noticeable effects compared to lower-quality cannabis strains. Some of the common effects associated with loud strains include:
