How Do You Know Which Marijuana Strain is Right For You?

You have probably heard a friend talking about all the different marijuana strains out there or have walked into a dispensary only to be overwhelmed by all the different options you have available to you. So how do you know which marijuana strain is right for you? First of all, you want to know if you are in the mood for indica, sativa or hybrid. Indicas tend to have a more relaxing effect and are better suited for nighttime use, while sativas provide an invigorating, uplifting feeling that is often used in the morning or during the day. Hybrids offer a combination of both these effects depending on the strain. Next, you want to take into account your tolerance level when it comes to marijuana consumption. The marijuana market offers a wide variety of products that are classified by quality, potency and price. Most dispensaries will categorize the different strains between low shelf, mid shelf and top shelf strains. Low shelf marijuana is the cheapest type of marijuana on the market. It generally has lower THC content and often contains seeds, stems or other debris. Mid-shelf marijuana falls in between low shelf and top shelf marijuana in terms of quality, potency and price. This type of marijuana usually has higher THC content than low shelf marijuana but still may contain some impurities such as seeds, stems or other debris. Top shelf marijuana is the highest quality available on the market with a high THC content and no impurities like seeds, stems or debris. It is usually more expensive than mid-shelf or low shelf marijuana. Though costlier, top shelf marijuana is often preferred for its superior quality. Lastly, consider what kind of flavor profile you enjoy. There are countless marijuana strains available, each with its own unique flavor. You may like strains that are sweet and fruity, earthy or even spicy. Smell the different strains and find one that appeals to your senses. This is just a starting point to help you choose the right strain. Ultimately, selecting the right strain for your needs comes down to preference and experimentation - take time to find out what works best for you!
