FLOWER EVALUATION GUIDE: Using the 5 Senses



Appearance, Aroma, Touch, Taste, Sound





  • Not all cannabis is created equal. Everybody has a different idea of what “fire” is.

  • Trust yourself. The best of anything is the one that you like the most.

  • Framework. Easy to remember.  Simple to share.  Based on the five senses.

  • Foundation building. Get your reps in!

  • Share & Compare.  Sharing your flower and feedback amongst friends (old and new) makes most things in life more fun.

  • Stats. Never tell the whole story, just ask POTUS.

  • KISS.  Keep It Simple Stupid.  It’s not your lying senses deceiving you.

  • It’s not you, it’s me.  We’re trying to sell flower to you.  If what we’re saying doesn’t make sense, that’s our fault, not yours.


SEE WHAT WE SEE

And Smoke With Your Eyes First









AROMA AND TASTE

If It’s Not Obvious, It’s Not You. It’s the Bud.


  • Aroma Matches Taste (most of the time).

  • Be Smooth. Pleasant & enjoyable taste. Should not burn your mouth, throat, and/or nose.

  • Roll With It.  Joints deliver most consistent taste. Residue from glass will alter taste.

  • Prime Your Taste Buds.  Pull on the joint before lighting.

  • Exhale from your mouth and nose.



TERPENE COMPASS

What Aroma and Taste Looks Like

  • Visual representation of the flower’s taste and aroma.

  • Displays relative composition of terpenes, based on COA.





  • Mimosa and Cherry Punch are both decedents of Purple Punch; crossed with Clementine and Cherry AK, respectively.  No Terpinolene.  Similar levels of Bisabolol and Pinene.

  • Cherry Punch has higher levels of Myrcene (broad-leaf/indica).  Cherry AK’s influence.

  • Mimosa has higher levels of Caryophyllene and Limonene from Clementine lineage.  Increased Limonene levels are clear in aroma and taste.

THE SOUND OF TOUCH

Like a Fresh French Baguette









Like a fresh French baguette, cannabis flower should crackle and snap when squeezed.  It should also give and compress, but largely bounce back after released.
