Product Review by Roy Stevens

There’s no denying that over the past decade, cannabis has seen a complete reversal regarding not only its popularity but also its acceptance as part of mainstream culture.

We’ve definitely come a long way regarding how we think of cannabis. An entire culture is emerging across the United States and even around the world surrounding different cannabis strains and the advantages and disadvantages each strain has.

Cannabis is no longer something that’s whispered about and bought and sold in small baggies in dark streets. Now, we’re seeing cannabis culture and cannabis science come screaming out of the darkness and into the forefront of discussions.

People not only want to buy cannabis to consume; they also want to cultivator cannabis, and for that, they’re after specific strains.

If you consume or cultivate cannabis on a regular basis, then check out our cannabis strain library, explaining everything you need to know about what went into their creation and what the effects of different cannabis strains are. Also, remember to check back regularly, as new cannabis strains will be added to the library on a continuing basis.

OG Kush Strain

If you’re looking for a strain of cannabis that would be considered the ‘backbone’ of West Coast cannabis, you’d be hard-pressed to go past the glorious and mysterious OG Kush.

If you have been looking at tips on how to pick the right marijuana strain for you, then you’ve come to the right place! Before you even make the decision to leave for your local dispensary or go online and start choosing the best strains for you, it’s important that you have some idea of what it is that you’re looking for.

There are hundreds of different cannabis strains out there to choose from, and you must be smoking the right cannabis for you. It’s no good smoking something that’s going to give you energy and creativity if you’re searching for a full-body high that’s going to allow you to sleep through the night.

When you arrive at the dispensary, there’s always a lot of pressure to decide, and let’s face it; there’s a lot of different options. It’s always a good idea to have some sort of clear idea about what strains you’re looking for before arriving.

In the following section, we’ll take a look at six different tips on how to pick the right strain of cannabis for you!

  1. Learn the Different Types of Cannabis Available – The three main types of cannabis available to choose from are indica, sativa, and hybrid, which is a mixture of indica and sativa but usually either indica or sativa dominant. Indica strains are going to give you more of a body high that will leave you couch-locked, while sativa strains are more energetic and will help to inspire creativity. If you know which strain you prefer, it will help to narrow down what you’re looking for considerably.
  2. Research the Different Strains Available – Different strains are going to give you a completely different experience, regardless of whether or not it is an indica or sativa. Different strains will help you focus, increase creativity, stimulate your appetite, help you sleep, relax you, and much more. Look for strains that meet your requirements.
  3. Understand Your Tolerances – It’s important that you understand what your tolerances to marijuana are. There’s no point getting the most potent THC strain of cannabis available if you’re not used to it. Trust us. You won’t enjoy the experience. All strains of marijuana contain a balance of CBD and THC. THC is responsible for the euphoric high that you experience when you smoke marijuana. The higher the THC, the higher you’ll get.
  4. What Smells or Aromas Do You Like? – You may be surprised to learn that not only do different marijuana strains not all smell the same, some of the smell pretty funky. You want to try and smell different strains before you buy them to ensure that you’re going to like the smell. There is nothing worse than trying to smoke a lot of weed when you don’t like the aroma.
  5. Make Sure That Your Strain Is Available – There’s no good heading down to the dispensary with your perfect strain picked out only to find out that it’s not even available to buy. Different strains will be more prevalent in different areas, while less popular strains of cannabis may only be available at certain times of the year. Dispensaries always have their preferred strains of cannabis that they stock year-round.
  6. Look At It Before You Buy It – Most good dispensaries have their cannabis in small containers that allow you to look at it and smell it before you choose to purchase it. Look for things like vibrant colors, and the small crystal trichomes. If you have questions about the strain of cannabis that you’re thinking about purchasing, then ask the dispensary staff if they have ever tried it themselves or could make any recommendations. Most staff have a lot of knowledge and are more than happy to help educate new customers and beginners that are just trying cannabis for the first time.

Hopefully, with tips we’ve given you above, you’ll be able to make some smarter, more educated decisions about what cannabis type is best for you.

Remember, don’t be afraid to ask questions while you’re trying to find the best cannabis strain for you. Try buying smaller sample sizes of cannabis until you narrow down what strains you prefer and then move onto larger purchases. It’s a great way to avoid having a lot of cannabis that you don’t like.

Recap

Well, that wraps up our initial list of some of the most popular cannabis in the United States! We hope that you have found your favorite strain in the list and that the guide to picking the right cannabis strain/seed for your next grow will be the right one.

With so many different cannabis strains to choose from, it’s never easy to make such a comprehensive list like this. There are always going to be some strains that don’t make the list initially.

But, if you enjoy cultivating and/or smoking cannabis and discovering new strains of cannabis to try, then check back regularly as new strains will be added to the library on a regular basis!
