Beauty is in the Eye of the Bud-Holder

Beauty is in the Eye of the Bud-Holder

Imagine this. 

It’s Friday. A long work week is finally over. You punch out and head to your friend’s place for a night of takeout and video games. 

Before you even reach the stoop, the smell of dank weed hits you right in the nose.  

You knock on the door and your friends let you in. They are so stoned that they can barely open their eyes. 

“Dude, wait till you see these nugs. They are out-of-this-world! 

You follow your friends to the basement, but it feels like you’ve arrived in paradise. Your favorite music is playing, the smell of pizza wafts through the air, and your friends are laughing their asses off. And then they show you the ganja of the evening. 

“Duuuude, look at this bud!” Your friend says and holds up a magnifying display jar loaded with topshelf nugs. 

You reach for the gorgeous green herb sparkling before your eyes. Seeing its vivid orange hairs and thick coating of juicy white trichomes feels like love at first sight. 

You turn on the magnifying jar light and take a closer look at this super elite cultivar. 

No wonder your friends are freaking out. You’ve never seen weed like this before. 

A couple of bong rips and a joint or two later and you still can’t take your eyes off the stash jar filled with herb. Staring at the white trichomes, dark-green sugar leaves, and bright orange tendrils of this superior weed through the magnifying jar is fascinating. 

Pretty soon, you’re lost in thought about the beauty of cannabis, an amazing plant Mother Earth was nice enough to share with us. 

Finding Beauty in Cannabis 

Once upon a time, weed looked like…weeds. And grass. Over the last few decades, passionate growers have put blood, sweat, and tears into their cannabis crops, transforming what we would now consider schwag into incredible topshelf strains. 

Whether you’re a newbie who recently fell in love with weed or a seasoned stoner who has loved it since it was schwag, it’s obvious that modern weed is superior to that of yesteryear. No matter what category you fit in, you can appreciate the patience and dedication behind the cultivation of such potent and beautiful strains. There’s beauty in both the bag appeal and the hard work behind modern topshelf cannabis. 

It’s only natural for us to be dazzled by the beauty of cannabis. Literally. 

Spending time around nature can help us reduce stress, improve our creativity, and feel more alive. 

Exposure to the natural world helps us better understand ourselves and our environments. It helps us renew our spirits and rejuvenate our mind-body connection. 

Since the beginning of time, humans have found numerous ways to express their profound feelings about the beauty of nature. 

Whether they wrote poetry, sang songs, or made art about nature, people of all cultures have made it clear: humans and nature exist in a fundamental relationship. 

While people have always been impressed by the beauty of oceans, mountains, and all kinds of foliage, it’s time more of us take a closer look at the singular character of nature’s most magnificent flowering plant: cannabis. 

When you look at a topnotch nug up close, it’s easy to get mesmerized by its lovely colors and textures. Not to mention its incredible sticky texture and pungent aroma, which can have a similarly hypnotic effect on the senses. Once you try a cultivar of this caliber, it's hard to go back. Experiencing elite cannabis strains helps you appreciate the bounty of nature. 

Nowadays, cannabis is so beautiful that brides include it in their wedding bouquets. To include such a polarizing plant in a significant life ceremony says a lot about how impressive topshelf buds have become. Even Grandma would be psyched by a super-cool bud bouquet. 

Cultivating an Elite Cannabis Experience 

Do you want to appreciate the beauty of your cannabis experience even more? 

Turn your smoking session into a meditative experience. Take the time to set the mood and curate a wonderful environment around you. All you need is some topshelf weed and your five senses. Before your sesh, be sure to pick up some dope bud from a dispensary near you. Take the time to research the buds available so you can understand their terpene profile and bud structure beforehand. We won’t judge you for picking nugs solely based on the fact that they are purple or humongous. It’s your preference! 

First, adjust the lights to your preference. Whether that means multicolored disco lights, amber mood lighting, or complete darkness, that’s up to you. 

Second, put on some tunes that suit your mood. Will it be calming Classical, smooth Jazz, or wild Rock N’ Roll? Queue up a playlist and get ready to jam out.

Next, it’s time to put the scents in this sensory experience. Burn some incense, light some candles, and fire up your aromatherapy diffuser. You can even match up your scents with the terpene profile of your cannabis strain. Crank open your stash jar and take a deep whiff of the potent aroma of your cannabis’ terpenes. If your jar has an airtight seal, your bud will stay super fresh. 

Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes and sit in your favorite smoking spot. Use the magnifying jar light to gaze lovingly at your beautiful nugs. Take some time to appreciate the hard work and love for nature that went into their cultivation. 

Grind up your nugs and load your ground herb into your smoking device of choice. Whether you roll a blunt or pack a bowl, take some time to savor the smooth taste of the amazing bud you are smoking. 

If you are a stoner, pothead, or weed lover, you know that the cannabis experience is so much more than just getting high. There’s beauty to the ritual of the entire process. You can cultivate an amazing sensory experience at your next smoking session by appreciating the beauty of your cannabis a little bit more.
