White Ash vs. Black Ash
When it comes to burning cannabis flower, both types of ash indicate that the plant material has been exposed to high temperatures, but that doesn’t mean all ashes are created equal. White ash typically indicates that your flower was cleanly combusted, meaning no additives were included in the combustion process, and the flower was burnt completely. In contrast, black ash suggests something else entirely.
Black ash can signal a few things. First, it could mean that something else was burned along with the flower, such as paper or leftover nutrients from when the plant was cultivated; second, it could be an indication of a low-quality flower that was not dried and cured correctly; third, it could mean you packed your bowl too tight and you weren’t able to thoroughly burn the flower; fourth, it could be a result of high levels of moisture in your bud; lastly, it could suggest that the material was charred instead of combusted.
So how do you know which one applies to you? If you are sure nothing else but cannabis was added to your bowl or joint, then focus on other factors like quality control, moisture levels in the bud itself, and whether or not you packed your bowl too tightly. If none of these apply to you, then another issue could be at play here. For example, if any adulterants such as nutrients or metals were used in cultivating or processing this particular strain, this might explain why there is black vs. white ash post-combustion.
In short, black ash can tell us something about our marijuana. In contrast, white ash cannot necessarily offer us any insight into our product – only that it has been adequately combusted! While some may prefer one type over the other when smoking cannabis flower, there is no correct answer as both will provide similar effects depending on how they were prepared for use (e.g., stem removal). However, understanding what causes each type of residue post-combustion can help us make more informed decisions when purchasing strains from dispensaries or online sources! So next time you spark up, take note – white or black – and see if anything changes!
