Star Buds is proud to sell a wide selection of flower at various quality and price levels. At Star Buds we sell loose flower on four different shelves—Connoisseur, Elite, Premier and Select. Here we explain the differences of the flower on each of the shelves.
Connoisseur Shelf (Best)
Cultivation & Manicure – Connoisseur flower is the highest quality indoor-grown flower we sell. These buds are classic strains that have built a reputation for quality genetics, as well as more exotic strains that are harder to find.
Aroma – Connoisseur flower is properly cured and has an aroma that fills the room shortly after opening the container. The scent creates an experience within itself that marks your olfactory system with a unique memory.
Appearance – Connoisseur buds have a vibrant and healthy-looking color, and are entirely covered in frosty trichomes — almost like the bud was dipped in sugar and frozen. They are hand trimmed with precision and never come with visible stems or shake in the bag.
Potency – These medium- to large-sized buds have a dense structure and a THC content that is over 25%.
Elite Shelf (Better)
Cultivation & Manicure – Our top shelf flower is grown predominantly indoors and includes classic, recognizable, and name brand strains with prize-winning genetics. These buds are always hand-trimmed and have a well-defined shape.
Aroma – These buds have a sharp and pleasantly aggressive aroma that can entice a physical or emotional reaction.
Appearance – Top shelf buds have an eye-catching color and are covered in sparkling trichomes that give them an unmistakable shine.
Potency – These medium to large-sized buds have a THC content that is usually over 25%.
Premier Shelf (Good)
Cultivation & Manicure – Our premium shelf flower is usually grown indoors but sometimes comes from high-grade greenhouses. They are good-sized buds that have been hand- trimmed or machine-trimmed and hand-finished.
Aroma – These buds have a rich aroma that you can recognize from strain to strain, which is strong enough to linger in the air for a moment.
Appearance – Premier shelf flower comes in varying shades of green, with hues of purple, pink, and blue throughout the foliage. These buds have trichome crystals that are easy to see, along with red, orange, and pink hairs.
Potency – The THC content of premium shelf is typically over 20%.
Select Shelf (Value)
Cultivation & Manicure – Our special shelf flower is machine-trimmed and cultivated in greenhouses and high-quality outdoor cannabis farms.
Aroma – While some greenhouse and outdoor flower tends to smell the same, you’ll find that our select shelf strains each have a distinct aroma.
Appearance – This flower is green but is a little bit darker than the other shelves, and the buds are not as thickly covered with frosty trichomes.
Potency – The THC content of special shelf is usually around 15% or higher.
