Weed typically refers to the unfiltered form of marijuana. In fact, the only major preparation for weed is simply to cut and dry it.

Generally, the quality of weed is determined by a list of factors, some of which we would consider in this write-up.

The percentage of THC present

THC is an abbreviation that represents delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, it is a major psychoactive ingredient present in weed. For a weed strand to be considered strong, its THC content should be of an average 20 percent. The high the THC content in a particular type of weed the, the greater its high effect. Weeds with THC content of more than 30 percent, would get a seasoned weed smoker stoned in minutes.

The type of psychoactive drug used

Drugs that are capable of affecting the mental state of an individual are called psychoactive drugs. In other words, these drugs can cause intoxication. Psychoactive drugs have more than just intoxicating abilities; they are also known to be capable of causing drastic changes in moods and consciousness of users. When a weed is considered to be of low quality, spraying it with some psychoactive drug would increase its quality and effectiveness. There are different types of psychoactive drugs; the common ones include stimulants (example, caffeine, nicotine, cocaine), depressants (alcohol, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates), opioids (mainly morphine derived drugs; painkillers, codeine, morphine, aspirin, acetaminophen, and heroin). Other psychoactive drugs include hallucinogens (psilocybin, LSD, ketamine, PCP, and peyote), and designer drugs (mephedrone, W18, and MXE).

These psychoactive drugs have different effects on the brain and body of its users. The different effects include paranoia, hallucinations, depersonalization, and depression. Psychoactive drugs, that have the capacity to cause hallucination are known to be present in the best quality weeds.

Physical properties

The physical properties of a particular weed can increase or lower its high effects. This includes smell, taste, and feel.


Weed that smells too strong are most likely to be weeds of low effect. When the smell of a weed is too strong, there is a high tendency that its high effect would be minute. The best quality weeds like the “Nigerian SK” (only sold in Nigeria), are mostly refined and smells better.


Having a weed that tastes good, can heighten the level of pleasure derived from smoking weed, and in most cases, increase the weed effect. Therefore, a weed that tastes better would intoxicate a stoner faster.


Tthe definition of pleasure cannot be adequate in the absence of feeling. The feel of the weed is known to be enjoyable to most stoners, sometimes even addictive. A weed that feels good gives a killer buzz and intoxicates faster.

Common types of weed

Bad Reggie weed

Bad Reggie weed or Reggie as it is usually called, is a weed that is most used by stoners in the poorer communities. It has a very pungent smell, and it is very harsh on the lungs. A lot of seasoned weed smokes try to avoid Reggie because its THC percentage is lower than other refined weed strands. A typical Reggie weed is unrefined, and would probably be sold by corner-alley sellers (who plants Reggie in their backyards).  Reggie is not known to contain any extra psychoactive drugs and is considered to be an ordinary weed. It has a terrible smell, and would only get you high when you have consumed a lot. If you have never tried weed before, and you want to go a little out of your comfort zone by smoking some weed, Reggie is the best for you. Newbies can start off with Reggie until it is safe to try better quality weeds.

Mid-grade bud

The mid-grade bud weed is of richer quality than the Reggie weed, with better taste and smell too. The mid-grade has a better appearance, with its bright green leaves and its red or orange luscious fibers. This type of weed is most suitable for relaxation purposes if you want to catch a quick sleep, mid-grade bud is the weed to smoke. Unlike the cheap Reggie weed, the mid-grade bud is better refined, with a slight skunky smell. It certainly tastes better than Reggie, some have a fruity taste, while others come with a slight earthy tone. The THC percentage of a typical mid-grade bud falls between 17 to 24 percent. You can get high with a mid-grade bud without being sore and numb for the rest of the day.

Dank weed (skunk)

This is the best kind of weed you can find in the market. This weed is refined, perfumed and sprayed with the best psychoactive drugs in the market. When it comes to getting stoned, nothing beats skunk or dank weed. Dank weed comes with a dark green appearance, with sleek hair fibers. It has a very dense smell that can fill up the whole room. Dank weeds are known to be spicy and fruity at the same time. The high effect of dank weed is immediate and would leave you stoned all day long. With a THC level of about 35 percent, dank weed sets the pace for other weeds to follow.
