Savvy Uncensored: Raw, Rough Cut Bud

By Danyal Swan April 11, 2023
Savvy Uncensored Untrimmed Weed

If you love flower, you probably love Savvy. The no-frills, no-fills marijuana flower doesn't break the bank, and with large format sizes, is the ultimate stash box fuel. And now there's even more to love from Savvy cannabis, in the form of rough cut flower.

Savvy Uncensored, available in Illinois and Maryland, is wallet smart for the street-smart, offering even more for even less.

We know what you're thinking - what is rough cut bud and why would I want it? Sit down and grab your grinder and cone as we break down all things Savvy Uncensored.

What is Savvy Uncensored?

Savvy Uncensored is flower, unfiltered.

Most cannabis bud at dispensaries is dried and cured, then trimmed. The trim process removes sugar leaves, the small pieces of foliage that protect the bud and trichomes, and any excess stems. What's left is a beautiful bud, shaped and perfected to showcase the smokable goods. This is true of Savvy Bulk Buds, the small nugs offered in 7- and 14-grams in Illinois and Maryland, among other Zen states - but not of Uncensored.

Savvy Uncensored is flower in raw form - small, roughly trimmed buds. Sugar leaves and foliage will be along for the ride with Uncensored, preserving those precious trichomes until your smoking, vaping, or infusing session. More sizes, more formats, even more savings - it's what Savvy's all about.

We know what you're probably thinking - isn't rough cut, untrimmed flower less smokable in weight?

The answer is yes, and no. While there will be stems and sugar leaves that take up some of the precious flower weight, sugar leaves can be used as well. If you enjoy edibles, you can collect them to instead make infused teas, honey, or even butter - though this is recommended for someone with a higher tolerance, as dosing will not be difficult to calculate. Depending on your sensitivity, you may be able to grind sugar leaves to smoke with regular bud. Though not necessarily potent, they do contain some cannabinoids and terpenes, but can make the smoke harsher.

In Illinois, Savvy Uncensored packaging is just as loud and raw as bud, while in Maryland, Savvy packaging is similar to the OG Savvy, pink in color with duct tape.

What is Rough Cut, Untrimmed Weed?

Rough cut flower is just that - cannabis flower that has not been trimmed to the aesthetically-pleasing bud most of us think of when we picture flower.

The beauty of untrimmed weed, truly, is how wallet-friendly it truly is. There are fewer pairs of scissors (and hands) that touch each nug, and that's reflected in the cost for you.

Smoking rough cut flower requires a little more preparation than trimmed buds. If you're sensitive to smoke, start by removing any visible stems and sugar leaves before grinding; the sugar leaves should fall off with a simple pinch. Then, break apart your precious bud as usual to be rolled, packed, or vaped.
