Get to Know the Difference Types of Cannabis
The cannabis industry of Alberta is booming, and more people are heading to the cannabis stores. Once inside the stores, they discover the many types of cannabis on the shelves and get confused. They end up picking the wrong kind that they won’t enjoy as much.
If you are one of them, then don’t worry. Here is a simple guide to help you choose the right type of cannabis to help you, be it for just relaxing, painting, or having fun with your friends.
Basic Types of Cannabis
When purchasing cannabis, you must’ve come across the three most common types: Sativa, Indica, and hybrid. In the past, these were considered the benchmark for predicting the effects or high, like:
Sativa was famous for its invigorating and uploading cerebral effects, perfect for social gatherings and physical activities. Indica was considered physically sedating, perfect for relaxing, watching a movie, or going to sleep. And, the hybrid cannabis was a mixture of both.
However, recent research proves that this type of classification of cannabis wasn’t really accurate and consistent. According to Amos Elber, the head of data science at Confident Cannabis, these terms are more or less meaningless.
Strains of Cannabis
Enter, strains of cannabis. Strains as essentially categories that are formulated according to the cannabinoid and terpene content. CBD produces the high, and terpene produces the smell. So when choosing any cannabis products, always consider their strain.
Here are the top types of cannabis strains and the resulting effects.
Perhaps the most popular strain of cannabis, Afghan Kush, comes from the Hindu Kush region shared by Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is known for its super relaxing and sleep-inducing high.
