AA Grade

AA Grade weed is decent, mid-range quality marijuana. You can get quite a lot of variance at this quality and might find weed graded from AA- to AA . It’s not necessarily the best weed in terms of appearance, but it can still give you a pretty good high. Often a great choice for those who want a potent high without paying too much for it.

AAA Grade

AAA Grade weed is when you start to get to the high-quality weed. This usually applies to buds that look thick, healthy, and colorful. You’ll see colored hairs of purple, orange or yellow depending on the strain. You’ll also see more trichome crystals. This quality of weed will usually give you an intense, potent high. Indica strains will instantly make you feel relaxed, mellow, and free of any pain and stress. Sativa strains will quickly give a boost to your mood and energy levels.

AAAA Grade
