Marijuana strains: Everything you need to know

Major types of weeds and their effects

The two main kinds of cannabis are from two different kinds of cannabis plants – Cannabis indica and Cannabis Sativa. The types of marijuana vary in their effects on people as well as their quality. Some more recent weed is made using a third strain called Cannabis ruderalis. It is low in THC and is used mostly in medical marijuana use. In addition, hybrid strains were conceived which combine two major species. Most people using cannabis choose to use one form or another depending upon their effects.

Indica vs. Sativa: understanding differences between weed types

Both Indica and Sativa are sedating in their nature which makes them ideal for relaxing at night. Sativa has uplifting cerebral effects that enhance sleep and mood and increase mood and vigor. Hybrids of Indica, and Sativa may produce mixed effects. The origins of these two words originate in botanicals, and they describe the physical structure of plants.

Common types of weed strains and effects

The strongest weed tends to possess higher levels of THC and CBD. If CBD is higher in ratio, it could counteract the effects of THC. Consequently, levels of these two substances determine the impact on human beings.

Some varieties of weed strains are more prevalent and some are favored because of their amazing effects. There are currently weed “designer strains” which combine weed effects with Indica and Sativa strains, which are bred for high yield. New types of weeds often have a name that can often be attributed to their effect origins, or how they appear or smell. Among them Purple urkle, Willy Wonder, Permafrost, Pineapple Express and. These are the most popular and sought-after types of weed strains and the benefits of their use.

How many different strains are there?

The latest research suggests marijuana contains nearly 700 types and strains. Cannabis strains have the highest THC content. Many producers use this standard for their product name.

Indica Sativa and Hybrid vs. Cannabinoids and Terpenes

Weeds are extremely nuanced. Various strains have their chemical profiles and may have different interactions with the underlying body chemical structure, so the same strain will have completely different effects on another person. We prefer the more sophisticated, precise model that identifies a strain’s effect by studying its mix of cannabinoid and terpenic acid (more below). But indica & hybrid models provide a basic, easy way to learn how strains affect your body. Keep in mind they’re not exactly accurate.

What are terpenoids and cannabinoids?

Scientists are finding that the chemical profiles of cannabis can be measured better by their terpenoids and cannabinoid profiles.

How are these strains farmed?

Cannabis can be found in different types or sub-species. Farmers and cultivators have traditionally produced different varieties to create hybrid and specific strain combinations. All cannabis strains contain different concentrations of THC, cannabinoids (CBD) or CBD. The producer grows and labels the plants according to their appearance, taste, and influence. Current studies of different types of cannabis are predominantly influenced by personal experiences.

How should I choose a Marijuana strain as a beginner?

Firstly, consider the experience you have in using marijuana. When you are new to marijuana, use a CBD-dominated strain that contains less THC for you so you won’t get a high dose. Its 80:20 CBD:THC ratio will suit absolute beginners, and it could be a 50:50 ratio or 2:1 ratio as soon as your experience has improved. Choose a strain based on your experience. Indica-rich Blueberry relieves tension. If you have exams on the way, you might choose a Sativa-dominant Jack Herer as your alert.
