It’s a definite high to be a cannasseur and really get to know your cannabis.
Pardon the pun, but it’s actually very similar to becoming one of the cognoscenti of any pastime and/or profession. Expert status and being a cannasseur means knowing more than those at a more intermediate level:
The best knitters can feel the difference between a polyester blend and a true wool. They know all the sizes, brands, and materials of the knitting needles.
You know Beyoncé knows her favorite size stage, type of microphone, and why. The best chefs know the virtues of using real vanilla. They have also mastered gourmet scrambled eggs.
And cannasseurs know their weed.
They can taste and smell when a weed is old, and they know what to do with older weeds. They’re into the principles of ‘best use’ and ‘not allowing anything to go to waste.’
The cannabis expert knows which strains to put into their lungs depending on the specific effect they want for each specific occasion.
Becoming a cannasseur takes time. You don’t become one instantaneously by buying a variety of grams and then comparing and contrasting (getting too high and forgetting it all anyways) … although that can be educational and a lot of fun.
Cannasseurship is more about getting to know your weed inside and out- over time.
You buy an ounce or more. You smoke it by itself and with other weeds. You compare others back to the one you have a large quantity of. Then you continue comparing and contrasting until you are completely sick of the “house strain.”
Next, you move on and repeat the process with another type of cannabis. Continue this process, sometimes with repeat strains… you’ll rediscover a familiar ‘friend’ that you hadn’t smoked in over a year.
You examine each weed strain that comes your way. Attempt to commit some of the characteristics to memory.
And you smell each sample. Oh, do you sniff it.
Take in that heady aroma. Learn whether you prefer a botanical smell or a fruity one. Some prefer a skunky strain, or something more akin to new tennis shoes or car inner tubes.
The cannasseur also knows a bit about growing, some of the different terpenes found in weed, and something about cannabinoids other than THC.
Cannasseurs know about the different ways to get THC into your body: cooking, smoking pipes, bongs, and more.
A cannasseur has a true love.
They have more than just a little knowledge of all that is cannabis.
That, my friend, is what OregonExperts.com is all about!
