What Are Popcorn Cannabis Buds?

January 19, 2017

Popcorn buds, as the name implies, are buds just about or a little smaller than popcorn. These are usually B-grade buds that don’t have the bag appeal of large, lustrous A-grade nugs. One of the nice parts about popcorn buds is their intermediate position between budget cannabis and high-quality bud. The potency of popcorn buds should be on par with, if not slightly lower than, A-grade buds of the same strain (by the same producer).

If you already enjoy and appreciate the quality of cannabis created by a particular producer, do them and yourself a favor and purchase a packet of tight nuggets at a discounted price. The producer gets to share and sell their entire lot of flower and you get A-grade potency at a B-grade price.

Ways to Use Popcorn Cannabis Buds

Use popcorn nuggets to press rosin, increase the potency of your edibles, or to roll/smoke/vape. Popcorn buds might not pop in the package, but they taste and feel nearly identical to their more expensive counterparts.
