Schwag is a cannabis slang term used to refer to low-quality, inferior marijuana. The term is usually used in reference to cheap marijuana that comes out of Mexico. The marijuana product referred to as schwag is typically brown, overly dry, and contains excessive seeds, stems, and other unsavory plant fibers.
Schwag usually has a foul odor and does not boast any of the telltale aromatic terpenes of quality or top-shelf cannabis. schwag is flavorless and will not be covered in trichomes, which is always a sign of quality bud.
Many people also refer to schwag as ‘skunkweed’.
You’ll know that you are about to get some bad weed when you hear someone mention skunkweed. This is the quintessential dirt weed that the discerning stoner will avoid at all costs.
Schwag weed is the sort of cannabis your dumb older brother’s friend would try and grow in their parent’s backyard, and then subsequently attempt to sell to you.
You might smoke it as a last resort, but only as a last resort. Schwag weed is very dry, and full of seeds and stems.
You will also notice when you smoke it that it is even harsher on your lungs than top-shelf weed.
This has the typical skunky smell that is commonly associated with cannabis, though many also detect a faint sweet component to the odor as well.
Mostly you will probably just notice that the smell is extremely strong. If you want to keep your business on the down low smoking this bud might not be the best route for you to take.
This is the stereotypical stoner bud. The effects are quick but relatively mild and it’s more known for promoting the munchies than it is for treating any serious ailments.
If you are looking for a nice way to relax at the end of a tough day as you curl up with some Scooby Doo and Cheetos, this weed might be able to help facilitate that.
If you are looking for a serious medicinal strain, keep on looking.
