Common forms of cannabis flower
Flower, also known as a bud is the most popular form of cannabis as it can be used in a variety of ways, from smoking, vaporization to edibles.
You can buy flower in its loose form, where it hasn’t been rolled or processed. You will buy flower according to its strain and weight. We offer Hybrid, Indica, and Sativa strains.
Once you have your loose flower, you can grind it using a cannabis grinder to make the cannabis usable. After it is grounded, you can roll it into a joint, pack into a bong bowl, or you can decarboxylate the cannabis in your oven to use for edibles.
You can buy flower in the form of pre-rolled joints (commonly known as “pre-rolls”) as well as cannagars (an all cannabis type of cigar). This is a convenient way of buying cannabis, saving you time having to grind the flower and roll the joint yourself.
