What is schwag?

Schwag is low-quality cannabis and generally considered too bad to sell to a dispensary. Unlike trim, which is sugar leaves and other plant material trimmed off buds, schwag is buds that may contain stems, seeds, fan leaves, and other parts of the plant. Schwag is usually harsh to smoke and better used for making edibles or hash. Schwag is also distinct from other low-quality cannabis, such as brick weed, which is usually pressed into a brick for discreet and easy distribution.
