Bud Check’s valuation is more than just a grading; it’s the culmination of detailed analysis and market insights. Here’s a breakdown:

The Breakdown:

In essence, Bud Check offers a valuation that’s rigorous, relevant, and responsive to our ever-evolving industry.


Understanding the size of buds is crucial as it directly influences the potential brand placements and perceived quality. Size doesn’t just tell a story – it often dictates the product’s end use and market value. By correlating size with our overall score, we can effectively gauge the material’s worth. Here’s our breakdown:

Bud Check’s sizing system is designed to ensure all material is matched with its ideal market placement.


The Appearance category assesses the visual quality, focusing on density, trichomes, and color vibrancy. These factors are set during growth and remain largely unalterable post-harvest.


The Condition category reviews post-harvest handling, focusing on trim quality, moisture, and bud size. Factors can be altered with proper care, significantly affecting final product quality.


The Cure category evaluates the aroma, flavor, and age of the material, focusing on the nuanced attributes that good curing and proper, attentive storage conditions bring to the final product.


Unlike the first 3 categories the Reducers category only detracts instead of adds to your overall score. The reducers are based on the factors listed below and compiled together on our risk gauage.
