Popcorn Buds also known as smalls refers to the smaller, more compact buds of the cannabis plant that typically do not grow to the size of their larger counterparts. These buds are named for their resemblance to popcorn kernel in size and shape. Despite their diminutive size, popcorn buds contain similar levels of cannabinoids and terpenes as the larger buds, making them just as potent. They are often considered a more affordable option for consumers looking for the same effects and quality of cannabis without the premium price tag of the larger, more aesthetically pleasing buds.

Which Part of the Cannabis Plant Produces Popcorn Buds?

Popcorn buds come from the lower areas of the cannabis plant, areas that typically receive less light and are less exposed than the top of the plant. These smaller buds are often separated from medium and large buds during the harvesting process to maintain consistency in the product offered to consumers. While they are smaller in size, popcorn buds still possess many of the same properties and effects as their larger counterparts, making them an effective and often more cheap option for those looking to enjoy the benefits of cannabis.

How to consume Popcorn weed?

Popcorn Weed is widely used in the Cannabis industry, but ore behind the scene. This is a great way to get quality flowers at a competitive tag. They are often processed and used in other products. Even if you didn’t buy popcorns before, you’ve consumed them probably without knowing it. Here are a few ways to use your popcorn buds:

  1. Joint Fillers: Roll your joints with popcorn buds to enjoy a cost-effective smoking experience. While they might not be as visually appealing as larger buds, they provide a great smoke.
  2. Ice Water Hash: thanks to a lesser density of the bud it allows an easier ice water extraction. This is the most commonly used material for ice water hash
  3. Rosin: Popcorn cannabis buds can be easily used to produce rosin. Since rosin is so expensive and labour intensive it is a good way to bring the price down without sacrificing on quality.
  4. Vaping Material: If you prefer vaping cannabis, grind up popcorn buds and use them as material for your vaporizer. They can still deliver a satisfying vaping experience.
  5. Solvent Extracts: Just like for rosin, popcorn buds are great for solvent based extracts and make product such as THC Distillate, Live Resin, Budder etc..
  6. Moonrocks: Combine popcorn buds with concentrates like live resin and kief to create homemade moonrocks. These ultra-potent cannabis nuggets are great for a strong high.

Popcorn Buds: Pros and Cons

Good option for beginner: You can easily pack your dry herb vape pen or water pipe with smaller buds. With slighly lesser potency it’s great to try a new strain without flying to the moon Buds density: Popcorn buds are usually less dense than others, giving it a more squishy feeling. Not as hard as fully grown bigger nugs


In conclusion, popcorn weed refers to the smaller, less visually appealing cannabis buds that resemble the size and shape of popcorn kernels. These buds are typically found lower on the cannabis plant and are cheaper due to their smaller size. Popcorn weed maintains most of the potency and effects as larger flower buds, making them a cost-effective option for those on a budget. They are versatile and can be used in various consumption methods, including joints and making most types of concentrates.

It provides a practical and affordable way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis. Ultimately, whether one chooses popcorn weed or regular flower buds depends on individual preferences, intended use, and budget constraints.
