Difference Between Shake, Popcorn, and Full Nug

Cannabis flower is available in various shapes, sizes, and potencies that carry different names. Customers need to know the difference between shake, popcorn, and full nug to make an informed decision about the best cannabis flower and product for them. Continue reading the differences between shake, popcorn, and full nug with the best-selling products in each category at Strains Dispensary Perris, CA. 

Cannabis Shake


Shake is a finer consistency of cannabis flower fragments that have broken off as a result of handling. You might have noticed cannabis flower fragments collecting at the bottom of your storage container; this is shake. Although some connoisseurs consider the shake to be leftovers, others find that shake provides the perfect potency that they need. Cannabis shake is good for a variety of uses. 

  • Indica 14g Shake by High Supply – our most popular shake product is the Indica 14g made by High Supply. Many patients are overwhelmed by today’s flower potency and choose shake for the less intense effects compared to smoking full nugs. Shake has a consistency similar to ground nugs and is often smoked in a bowl, joint, or water bong. Some patients use shake for making edibles including tinctures and baked goods. 
Difference Between Shake, Popcorn, and Full Nug


Popcorn is flower that is smaller than full nugs but larger than shake. These flowers usually grow under the primary colas and receive less light. The reduced light and nutrients ensure that they don’t grow as large as full nugs. Although popcorn nugs do not have the same bag appeal as larger full nugs, the potency is usually similar in terms of cannabinoid and flavonoid profiles.  

  • Hybrid & Sativa Popcorn by High Supply – we have hybrid and sativa strain popcorn buds by High Supply available. Hybrid popcorn boasts 19.1% THC and sativa has 18.7% THC. Hybrid popcorn is good for any time and sativa popcorn is commonly used during the day.
Cannabis Nugs

Full Nug

Full nugs are the prime flower that the cannabis plant produces. Full nugs grow at the top of the plant where light absorption is optimized and nutrients delivered for maximum size and cannabinoid profile. Some of our most popular products are full nug flower.

  • C4 Indica by Strains Dispensary – our most popular full nug flower is C4 Indica boasting 30.0% THC. It is indica-dominant known for heavy relaxation and happy effects with berry flavor and smell notes. This is an excellent choice for patients treating anxiety, insomnia, anorexia, and pain.
