Hey 07,
Dealers buy in such large amounts the buds get compressed to save on space for packaging. I play with my buds, I know, I'm a little nuts but I've squeezed them in my hand and formed them to tight buds so if I bring some stash to smoke with friends it looks like it came from a "brick" - like a dealer who bought a kilo and had to break it apart. I only do this for travel stuff, not what I burn at home. If I leave it alone all pretty and manicured friends ask; "Oh this looks like some local grown stuff, do you know someone who's growing?" I don't like these type questions. It may not show off how good it looks but the high is still there regardless. Hope this helps ya.

I've done the same new girl! I literally have broken buds up and smashed them so I don't get questioned by friends!

But I agree, when I smoke at home, I LIKE MY HOMEGROWN QUALITY!

If you grow your bud right and cure your bud right the buds will get nice and tight on their own.

Agreed. We were just talking about those friends who question you like "oh so where did you get this homegrown?"

I hate to be put on the spot If I just break up the buds a little and compress the bag it just makes it looks like its been passed thru a few hands.

It only knocks a few trichs off, but it still smokes good. And normally its only like a gram. That's like nothing.

Why not look for a strain that produces super compact buds, like Sensi Star?

Subcool said bubba gum will dent Sheetrock if grown with c02 LOL!

P.s. I have around 9,000 lumens per square feet in the current room I have. Gunna open it up bigger to utilize my lights full area covering potential. I think a 4' X 4' roon would be exactly 5000 lumens per sq. feet with a 600 watt hortilux.

good growers get the best bud, keep practicing and soon you will get compact buds. it isnt just a matter of how do you get them you need to be able to get everything right to produce the best smoke. high pressure light penitrates the buds, so that what be your main target.

My wife stood up off the couch yesturday and turned around and threw me a bud. She had been sitting on it (accidently), but go figure, looks like compacted mass prosuced kine. So, if ya want, go sit on all ur buds (one was enough for us).
