How to choose the best cannabis strain
You may know about the difference between Sativa, Indica, and Hybrids (read here for more information). You may also know about CBD and THC ratios as well (click here to learn more). If you don’t, we recommend reading those articles first. But have you ever encountered strains with different names and didn’t know which strain to choose? This guide will introduce you to the best cannabis strains that you can try out for your next purchase.
What strain should you smoke?
Consider the effect you want to feel when you’re high. Kannafleur has a drop-down menu where you can choose your weed based on the effect you want to feel. You can choose a strain when you want to feel “energetic”, “euphoric”, “relaxed”, and more! But if you want to find a specific cannabis strain that you want to smoke, here’s a list of qualities that you want to consider:
Do you want Indica, Sativa, or a Hybrid?
Read our article on Indica, Sativa, and Hybrids to learn more, but in short, if you want your muscles to relax, smoke Indica. If you want to feel more energetic and creative, smoke some Sativa. And if you want to feel both, smoke a hybrid strain. There are a wide variety of cannabis strains that you can try to find the best choice for you.
Consider your weed’s CBD to THC ratio?
To get a more in-depth description of CBD to THC ratios, read our article, but in short, you feel more psychologically high when your weed is THC dominant. For instance, a 1:1 ratio weed has equal parts CBD and THC. However, if your weed is CBD dominant, you will feel less of a psychological high. Instead, you will feel more physically relaxed. Weed with a ratio of 18:1 is 18 parts CBD and has a more calming effect on the muscles.
