U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
After a marijuana plant is harvested and dried, the tiny leaves and flowers that make up the plant's buds shrivel up to make a tightly formed bud like the ones pictured here. This part of the plant is considered the post potent by weed smokers, compared to the larger leaves. People trying to quit using marijuana report irritability, sleeplessness, and anxiety. They also display increased aggression.
