We recently took a family trip to Las Vegas.
We brought along our four kids and my parents.
During the days, we found family friendly activities. The one day, we visited Wet n Wild, which was the ideal solution to the high desert heat. The water park occupies 27 acres and offers more than 25 slides and attractions. There are water tubes, funnels, rats, tight turns and a zero gravity thrill-ride called the Tornado. We had a really great time. After dinner and getting the kids tucked into bed, it was really helpful to have my mom and dad along to babysit. This allowed my husband and I to buy tickets to some shows, explore the casinos and check out the local recreational cannabis dispensary. My husband was most interested in buying loose flower. He prefers to roll his own joints and is rather particular about the bud he chooses. He always checks the harvest date on the flower to avoid anything that might be old or dried out. He won’t buy anything later than three months from the harvest date and looks for flower that is on the shelves within 10 days after the curing process. He always gives the flower the sniff test to make sure the aroma is pungent but with no hint of musty smells or mold. He is willing to pay more for fresh, potent weed. He also looks closely at how the trimming was completed. After the buds are cured, the extra plant foliage needs to be removed. A lot of companies use trimming machines to expedite the labor-intensive process. The machines tend to damage the bud. Trichomes get stripped away. Since the trichomes are the source of cannabinoids and terpenes, they are really important. Top-shelf flower is carefully hand-trimmed by experts who have the proper knowledge, experience and tools to preserve the bud.
