Shake Deals Denver

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 02 April 2021 in Canna Blog

My canna-friends, you know how I like to keep you in the know, right? So what do I want you to know about this time? A grand little present known as "shake." If you know, then you know. But for those who think I sound like a stoner stereotype, hear me out: while shake usually gets a bad rap, as the quality of weed is better these days, so is the shake...and there really are some good-quality shake deals in the Denver area that you should know about.

What is Shake?

It can vary in definition from person to person, but shake can be an extremely cost-efficient alternative to whole bud marijuana flower for those who like to consume marijuana in larger quantities or for those who go through their stashes fast.

By definition, marijuana shake describes the small pieces of flower left at the bottom of a storage device. These leftovers come from larger cannabis nugs. Shake typically forms when bumped or “shaken” around during transportation or harvesting. It does tend to dry out fast, so keep that in mind.

Dispensaries tend to sell these leftovers at a lower price than the flower it was shaken from because their effects and potency are often pretty unknown. 

Shake is Definitely Not Trim

Trim is what gets removed from cannabis buds after harvest. Trim often contains much more sugar leaves and stems than shake.

Trim is typically used in making concentrates and not much else.

If smoked on its own, trim will most likely not get you high.

Shake’s Bad Reputation

Shake has been looked down upon in the past as being an inferior quality to actual, intact cannabis flower buds. This often comes with people who probably bought trim thinking it was shake, most likely weak or not having any effect.

Shake that comes from a strain with a larger concentration of trichomes can be just as good as the original bud.

That shake sitting in a dispensary jar, then rolling around in tasty trichomes adds a lot of flavor and potency.

Unfortunately, trichomes are fragile and are not always found in high concentrates. In this case, the quality of this kind of shake may be lower quality than those with larger amounts of trichomes present.

When looking for quality cannabis shake, look for cannabis shake that still has a decent amount of shiny trichomes present.

How You SHOULD Look at Shake

In the past, shake was just a random ratio of leaves, stems, and maybe some buds. I imagine most people think that this gross assortment of marijuana turns anyone off of buying shake. But rejoice, for it is 2021, and recreational/medical weed is the best it's probably ever been! 

Sweet Mary Jane only continues to grow (pun absolutely intended) in potency and availability as the country continues to legalize. This being the case, marijuana shake can only get better as well.

Some dispensaries even use the term “shake” to actually describe popcorn (fully-formed, but small) buds. 

Here are 3 popular ways shake is used:

  • Edibles and tinctures: Use shake with any edible or tincture recipe instead of wasting full buds. You gather cannabinoids from about any form of cannabis. So for edibles, prioritizing quality in the ingredients you’re combining with the shake is more important. This makes edibles or tinctures a great way to use up your lower-quality shake.

  • Pre-rolls/Joints: Using shake for joints is a common practice for dispensaries. Some cannabis consumers will tell you they prefer the mellow and toned-down high that shake provides. Shake joints/pre-rolls are a good solution for those who experience negative effects from high potency buds though this isn’t always the case.

  • Blunts: These XXL joints take a lot of Mary Jane to fill up. Shake is a wonderful solution for the "bluntists" out there. Mix these with premium flower, hash and/or kief for extra mindful delights.

Shoot, I bought shake just the other day during one of my own dispensaries runs. The shake was from a platinum shelf bud at half the cost. Though, do look at it first. Some batches of shake are far better than others.

Some Last Cautions When Buying Shake

  • Buying shake can be a literal mixed bag of different cannabis strains and following high from a particular batch of shake isn't always going to be consistent. Shake also dries out quickly, so you'll want to smoke it fast.

  • Some dispensaries carry cannabis shake in tightly packed jars for weeks. Make sure you check that the shake isn’t too moist. This can make marijuana a perfect breeding ground for mold. No one should smoke mold.

  • Medical marijuana patients should try to steer clear of shake. Medical patients often do require consistent doses and results of quality accurate potency flower. With shake, neither is guaranteed. 

In the end, it's up to your personal cannabis budget and preferences.

Due to its ever-growing popularity, finding consistent deals on premium shake can often be tricky, even in Denver.
