What does “Crystals” mean?

The tiny, delicate growths that give weed that appealing “frosty” look. Before legalization, these crystals were often the center of a debate. Less-experienced users worried that crystals signified that their weed had “gone bad” or had been laced with another drug. However, it actually means that the buds are filled with THC, and they're a signal of the weed’s potency. Legalization has allowed for strain development to favor crystal-covered buds, therefore increasing the quality of the weed.

Example usage:

“Jeez, just look at the crystals on that nug!”
