Our Dispensary Offers a Large Selection of Cannabis Strains

With its pungent, sticky, and aromatic nature, cannabis flower is the most popular product in the market. The buds or flowers are carefully cultivated, harvested, packaged and stored for consumer delight. These flowers are known for their distinct aroma and resinous texture. They are adorned with small hair-like, glandular structures called trichomes which are responsible for storing high concentrations of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

Cannabis dried flower is the starting material for all other cannabis products such as concentrates, edibles and vape cartridges. 


Widely cherished form of cannabis consumption

When consumed, whether through smoking, vaporising, or other methods, cannabis can elicit a range of psychoactive and physical effects. These effects are primarily driven by the presence of cannabinoids, particularly THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is responsible for the euphoric sensations commonly associated with cannabis. However, it’s important to note that different strains, terpene profiles and individual preferences can influence the specific effects experienced by the user.


The Art of Drying and Curing Cannabis Flower for Optimal Quality

To create an exceptional experience, cannabis flower must undergo meticulous drying and curing. This process carefully controls humidity, temperature, and airflow, preserving the flower’s quality, and unique characteristics. Gradually reducing moisture content during drying prevents mold growth while preserving natural compounds. Proper drying optimises texture, potency, and integrity. Curing follows, refining the flavour and sensory experience as complex chemical compounds harmonise. This delicate process enhances and preserves the flower’s qualities, resulting in a superior product. The optimal balance of moisture, texture, and aroma ensures each bud offers desired characteristics for a satisfying cannabis experience.
