If you’re new to using cannabis, you might not be aware of the different types of strains that exist and the different benefits they offer. There are so many different flavors, effects, terpenes, and scents available and they all have different effects. It can definitely get intimidating or overwhelming. 

Some of the most common words you may have heard before could be indica, sativa, and hybrid. Sativa strains are more energizing and help you explore your creativity or expression. Indica has been known to help you fall asleep, relax, and reduce pain. Hybrid strains offer the best of both worlds and offer combinations of the two while delivering a unique experience. 

When it comes to choosing a strain, it all depends on what type of effect you’d like to have. Most of the time there is a balance of THC and CBD to determine the potency of the strain. While both have many of the same benefits, they have different bodily effects that some people like and some people dislike. For example, effects of THC can make you feel more euphoric and happy while CBD delivers more bodily effects. A strain that may be 2:1 THC to CBD may be more intense than 2:1 CBD to THC would be. 

The main focus when choosing a strain should be the experience you’re looking for. After you’ve done initial research as to what you would like to experience, you’ll want to shop around to determine which factors would be more important to you such as: price, flavor, smell, taste, etc. Choosing a strain of cannabis does not have to be as daunting as it may appear to some. With thousands of strains out there, take the initiative to do some research on your own and determine what you like best.
