Strains

Read about the latest and greatest cannabis strains and genetics. Here you’ll find articles about selecting, growing, and breeding the finest cannabis cultivars on the market. Learn from the most experienced cannabis growers and breeders in the industry.

What Are Cannabis Strains?

Cannabis strains are individual breeds of cannabis. These cultivars have been bred to produce unique aromas, flavors, and effects that distinguish them from other varieties of cannabis.

Cannabis strains generally fall into three subspecies of marijuana: Indica, Sativa, and hybrid strains. These varieties are categorized by their origins, growth traits, terpene profiles, and cannabinoid content.

Sativa varieties originated in South America and Southeast Asia. These cultivars tend to grow tall in height and produce large, fluffy buds. Sativa strains typically deliver an uplifting and energizing high.

Indica varieties primarily originated in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nepal. These commonly grow short and stout, with small, dense buds that are heavily coated in trichomes. Indicas are known for their profoundly relaxing and body-numbing stone, making them popular among medical cannabis users.

Finally, hybrid cultivars are combinations of Sativa and Indica varieties. A well-bred hybrid tends to be more vigorous than Sativa and Indica varieties, combining the cerebral rush and large yield of Sativas with the compact structure and dense, frosty buds of Indica strains. Hybrids often deliver a balanced high that soothes the body and mind.

What Is the Best Cannabis Strain?

With so many varieties of cannabis available, it can be a challenge to select the right one. Choosing the best one largely depends on the grower’s goals. High-yielding cultivars may be ideal for commercial growers, while growers creating cannabis extracts may prefer varieties that produce lots of resin. For beginner growers, choosing a hardy and vigorous hybrid cultivar is usually the best option.
