Cannabis strains are as unique and temperamental as grape varietals. They will vary on their THC/CBD content, terpene profile, and environmental expression. All to say: read on and find the strain that’s right for you. Or better yet, come into our store and talk with us.
THC and CBD have a similar chemical composition, but they are different in their atomic arrangements so they interact differently with our endocannabinoid system.
THC can lead to euphoria, CBD has been shown to help with anxiety.
Indica-dominant strains generally deliver a relaxing effect while Sativa-dominant provide an uplift. But in fact, Indica, Sativa and Hybrid refer to the physical characteristics of the plant, and that’s most important to a grower. As a consumer choosing a strain, think more about flavor, desired effect, growing practice and potency.
Terpenes are aromatic oils secreted by glands to reveal distinct aromas and flavors. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant. Discover your own favorite flavor.
