Flower is the bud of a female cannabis plant. Most people look at the strain name, plant type (indica/sativa) and potency (THC/CBD content) when buying flower. Flower is sold by strain and weight. Under current California state law, individuals can legally buy one ounce of flower per day. When you visit the dispensary and have decided what you’d like to buy, say something like, “I’ll take an eighth of Red Congolese”. That’s it! Easy, right?

Flower is usually smoked through a pipe or bong, or can be rolled into a joint. It can also be vaporized through a variety of accessories.
