How to Select the Perfect Strains for Your Lifestyle

There are plenty of perks that come with cannabis, and one of its best benefits is its versatility. There’s a cannabis strain for just about any and every occasion, something to suit your lifestyle, preferences, and even your mood.

From energy to relaxation, focus to stress relief, you can find marijuana strains that align with what you want and need. But even though having so many options is a major plus, it can also make things a little trick: how do you pick the perfect strains for your lifestyle?

Know your cannabinoids. 

Even though shopping for sativa, indica, and hybrid strains can be a good guideline, an even better approach is to base your browsing on cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds – the “active ingredients” – in cannabis, and each strain contains its own unique balance. 

Learning a little bit about the major players in the world of cannabinoids can help you shop smarter. For example, THC is usually associated with a physical “high,” and pain relief, or full-body relaxation. CBD is commonly considered a good option for anxiety and inflammation. 

Think about terpenes.

Terpenes often don’t get the credit they deserve, but they can have a solid impact on your cannabis experience. The aromatic compounds give specific strains their signature smell, and common terpenes include myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene. If you’re familiar with aromatherapy, then you can imagine why terpenes should play a part in your strain selection.

Figure out what you want.

Instead of looking to what other people say about a strain, ask yourself exactly what your ideal experience is – and don’t forget to consider your experience level, sensitivity, and goals. Once you can pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for, our team can jump into action and help you find a strain to match.
