Questions To Ask Yourself When Choosing Marijuana Strains
If you’re not sure of the goals for your high, there are some key questions you can ask yourself.
- How much experience have you had with marijuana? Are you a new cannabis user or have you been smoking for a while? If you are a new user, it is better to go with a strain with a low THC content, or perhaps a THC:CBD ratio. On the contrary, if you’re experienced, you can look for strains with a high THC content. The amount of THC in a strain will effect how high you get.
- Do you have any food allergies or health concerns? Some edibles contain ingredients that many people have issues with, such as dairy or gluten. Make sure to always read the ingredients listed on the packaging.
- How do you plan to use the weed? If you’re planning to bring your cannabis along to a concert, you would choose a much different strain than if you were looking for one to smoke before bed.
You can always ask your budtender or customer service rep for advice as well. They are trained in helping you find the best weed for your particular needs! We hope this article helped you, and hope to see you soon!
