Many industries, such as wine, diamonds, and craft beer, have a set of guidelines that help consumers evaluate the quality of what they are about to purchase or consume. Good Chemistry Nurseries has developed a one of a kind evaluation guide for Cannabis. The S.T.A.T.S. (sight, touch, aroma, taste, sensation) method is a five-step process for identifying high quality, remarkable flower, not unlike the multi-step process for evaluating wine. The guide can help consumers evaluate essential aspects of the flower in order to make the most informed and satisfying purchase decisions.
How does it work?
S.T.A.T.S. walks you through each aspect of Cannabis to look for (sight, touch, aroma, taste, sensation). When evaluating flower, use the S.T.A.T.S. guide to help you determine whether or not the flower you are about to purchase or consume is high or low quality. For example, when working through the sight section, it is important to know the visual cues for remarkable cannabis. Aspects of the flower to examine are: trichome content, color, structure, size and trim. Also look for red flags to make sure you aren’t buying flower that has obvious imperfections. Seeing the flower can sometimes be the only evaluation option before purchase.
Is S.T.A.T.S. good for both novice users and aficionado?
The S.T.A.T.S. guide is a great tool for any type of Cannabis user. If you are new to the Cannabis world, S.T.A.T.S. is a great way to ensure you get the best possible Cannabis experience. If you are a self-proclaimed Cannabis aficionado, you can dive deeper into the world you already know and become a true expert on evaluating Cannabis.
