I am obsessed with lovely colors and artwork.
My mother used to take me to gem shows when I was a little kid and I saw some of the most lovely stones in my life.
I l received about opal, topaz, and aquamarine to name a few. My mother was a jewelry artist at the time and used scarce gemstones as beads for necklaces, bracelets, pendants, earrings, and more. Often she let me pick out something small for myself as a keepsake. Usually I would get a quartz crystal to add to my collection, but periodically I would get geodes made from agate. Agate is quartz with impurities in it, which accounts for all of the strange patterns and colors that you see in agate geodes. My favorite color agate is definitely red. I love enjoying the colors sparkle under the light. Believe it or not, but there are strains of cannabis that periodically yield red hues within the flower buds themselves. Finding red cannabis buds is consistently a momentous occasion for me because I love how they look. Sometimes red only shows up in cannabis due to temperature changes during the flowering cycle, but there are definitely strains that yield the color naturally regardless of hot and cold temperatures during flowering. From personal experience, I have found many times as many red buds in indica strains compared to sativa strains. It’s not consistently a given, but more often than not red cannabis is an indica strain if it wasn’t turned that color from heat or nutrient deprivation. At the end of the day, I care more about a strain of cannabis’s effects over the color and visual appearance.
