Resin production is among the most appreciated traits of our favorite green plant. No wonder frosty weed strains are sought-after among growers and tokers.
Cannabis “frostiness” results from trichomes on their surface. These glands produce resin, a gooey substance chock-full of cannabinoids and terpenes.
In simple terms, bud frostiness promises a rich flavor and potency.
All strains contain these glands, but due to genetic factors, some are stickier than others. We’ve handpicked ten such cultivars for your next growing journey.
