The Different Grades of Weed Quality

The Different Grades of Weed Quality

The first step to procuring quality marijuana is to buy from a trustworthy shop. The quality of your weed will determine the taste, aroma, and high you experience. Below we outline the different levels of quality available on the cannabis Canada market. Good quality cannabis is not just grown, it’s crafted, and a certain level of science is required to produce that quality


The Different Grades of Weed Quality

Top Shelf Weed

Top shelf weed is the best out there. Also known as AAAA weed, quad weed, or simply quads, this weed is grown with intense care, time, and effort. However, even if the weed is quality on the plant, it will never make the top shelf tier if it is not harvested, cured, and stored correctly. 

Triple-A Weed (AAA Weed)

Right under the top shelf buds, you have Triple-A Weed or AAA weed. This weed is almost as potent and high quality as AAAA weed, but maybe one or two minor deviations in the growth pattern or harvesting process caused the weed to lose quality. 

Budget Buds (AA Weed)

Next, we have budget buds (aka AA weed). It is still decent quality, and this weed will still get you plenty high. Budget buds are a great option if you are on a limited budget but still want to get high like you are smoking top shelf. 


Cheap Weed

That is the poorest quality marijuana you should ever see in a weed dispensary. Cheap weed is still decent enough to smoke, but something is usually pretty off about it to make it affordable. Cheap weed might not have been cured so that it may have a harsher taste, or it may have malformed buds, but it is still perfectly safe to smoke. 

Shake or Trim

Many knowledgeable people believe shake or trim is poor quality marijuana. However, the quality of the shake is determined by the quality of the cannabis it originated. Trim is the bits and pieces such as leaves, pieces of buds, or crystals that have fallen off the plant. So if your trim came from a top-shelf bud variety, then it likewise will be of the best quality.
