Plant part



The female cannabis plant is the one that produces flowers or buds. The flower is the most popular part of cannabis because it is the smokable, trichome-covered part. Due to their versatility, cannabis flowers are consumed in various ways: 

  1. In a pipe or joint 
  2. Evaporated in a vaporizer 
  3. As food

When you buy cannabis buds in a dispensary, there are three types based on quality.

  1. Private reserve – Highest quality
  2. Top shelf – Almost like the private reserve
  3. Bottom shelf – Lowest quality
