Cannabis Flower and Strains

Even as edibles and concentrates are surging in popularity, the classic flower remains the most popular cannabis product on the market. Smoking flower is the most traditional way to enjoy the cannabis plant, and many people still prefer to go straight to the source. There’s never been a better time to enjoy flower because there are so many types of premium cannabis strains available. Colorado’s best growers are constantly working hard to develop fascinating new strains with high levels of cannabinoids and pleasant aromas.

Do Different Types of Cannabis Strains Have Different Effects?

One of the most interesting things about cannabis is that different strains have become associated with unique effects. One strain can lead to a completely different experience than another strain, even if their THC levels are identical. In time, you’ll learn more about what you can expect from any given strain of cannabis. Most people find it helpful to think about how they want to feel after smoking cannabis:

  • Relaxed and sleepy, or uplifted and excited
  • Creative
  • Talkative
  • Giggly
  • Hungry

Types of Cannabis Strains

At times, it can be hard to make sense of the many options on a dispensary menu, so learn more about the different types of cannabis to make an informed selection. All of the different strains have their own unique flavors and aromas, and they’re even associated with different types of experiences. Based on your unique tastes and the type of experience you want to have with cannabis, you can determine which strain appeals to you most.

Some connoisseurs get into the specific terpene profiles of each strain, but most people talk about cannabis as belonging to one of three main categories:

Indica Strains

Indica strains are normally associated with feelings of calm and relaxation, which is why so many people buy them for the evenings. People who buy a lot of indicas often say they’re looking for something to soothe their bodies. Look into this kind of cannabis when you want to have a snack and watch a movie.

Sativa Strains

Sativa strains are normally considered the opposite of indica strains, though every specific strain has its unique characteristics. People think about bursts of happy energy and creative thoughts when they think about sativas. These strains are associated with feelings of motivation and daytime activities.

Hybrid Strains

Simply put, anything that isn’t a pure sativa or indica is a hybrid strain. You can find indica dominant hybrids, sativa dominant hybrids, and balanced hybrids. This makes hybrid strains appealing to a wide variety of people.
