Nug run

A batch of cannabis concentrate made exclusively with nugs or buds and not shake or trim, as is common. Nug runs can use dried buds or fresh frozen cannabis, as in the case of live resins. Because they use buds, extracts made from nug runs are typically higher in quality.

“After dabbing my first nug run, I could never go back to trim runs again—the flavor just isn’t the same.”

What is a nug run?

Extracts are commonly made using lower quality cannabis such as trim or shake, rather than buds or nugs, which are usually sold as flower to dispensaries. A nug run is a batch of cannabis concentrate made exclusively from nugs or buds, with no trim or shake used. As nug runs use higher grade cannabis, they tend to be more expensive. Nug runs usually use buds that have been rejected for sale to a dispensary because they didn’t have bag appeal.
