Buds, Flower, Bloom

What does "Bud" mean?

Definition: The cannabis plant’s flowers. This is the part of the plant that you smoke. Once the cannabis is suitably grown, cannabis farmers have to dry the buds and cure them properly before they can be smoked. Because this is the part of the plant you smoke, people often equate the terms “bud” and “weed.”

Example usage for Bud

"We've been looking for like four hours, and still we can't find any decent bud."
