Cannabis or Medical Marijuana is commonly consumed for the relaxing, pleasurable, and healing effects. In multiple countries, it is used for recreational purposes too. Basically, it is a group of three plants, i.e., cannabis Indica, cannabis Sativa, and cannabis Hybrid having psychoactive properties.
The flowers of these plants are dried and then cultivated. As the governments of different countries are increasing its use and legalizing it, more people are getting aware of it. Luckily, we have it legalized here in parts of Canada.
What is a Marijuana strain?
Strains are the breeds of plants. The first thing to consider while choosing a strain is the cannabinoid profile. For example, CBD and THC are the two active compounds in the marijuana strains. They directly interact with the tissues in our body. Approximately 113 different cannabinoids are digested directly. Scientists are still researching these strains and compounds in detail. However, the essential cannabinoids discovered till now are:
Amongst all the six cannabinoids (CBD and THC) are the most important ones to understand about the strains. If you are only a fun marijuana user, then the strain you want to choose should have a rich supply of THC. That's because THC is the only component for providing psychoactive effects associated with cannabis. However, if you are using marijuana for medical conditions, choose a strain with a high level of CBD. This is beneficial for the individuals who want to work and like to be in their senses and control the pain.
It is also important to understand the terpene profile. A strain's terpene profile is about the chemical compounds responsible for providing unique scents and taste palettes. The numerous compositions of terpene are responsible for a variety of marijuana strains.
All the compositions are formed due to different environmental and soil conditions where the plants are cultivated. For example, if you want your marijuana flavour to remind you of a forest-like smell, then choose the strain with a high concentration of pinene terpene. If you are fond of fruity flavour, go for a strain having limonene terpene. These flavours have made marijuana popular in different ways. People like to consume it through candies, chocolates, and vapes.
