What do you think the best signs are that the weed is good?
I think smell and look of the bud is more important than whether it has seeds or not. Some bud looks decent but smells real bad like rotten vegetables 'n, while other bud has lots of seeds but smells like dank and is still better than it looks.
Seeds 'n stems aren't a big deal to me if the bud is straight. Sometimes what people may call "regs" are actually good mids.
Also some bud has almost no seeds but its still only low mids.
