The Different Types of Cannabis

As a beginner in the cannabis world, it can be tricky to grasp all of the different concepts and to have an understanding of every different aspect of the industry. However, once you have an understanding of all the basics, learning about the wrist is incredibly simple.

When you are new to cannabis, it is important to understand that there are different types of plants. One type is Indica strains, which are known for their relaxing effects. This is why high quality indica strains can be an effective treatment for insomnia or chronic pain. Indica plants tend to have a shorter, bushier appearance with wider leaves. In contrast, Sativa strains provide more uplifting and stimulating effects, making them a popular choice for daytime use or creativity enhancement.

Sativa plants have a tall, slender appearance with narrow leaves. Another type of cannabis is hybrid strains, which are bred to combine the effects of Indica and Sativa genetics. This can result in a variety of different effects and physical traits. Whether Indica, Sativa, or hybrid, there is a wide range of options available for finding the perfect strain to suit your needs.

The Different Forms of Cannabis

Not only are they different types of cannabis, but they are also different forms that you can consume.

Cannabis also comes in different forms, which include flowers, edibles, concentrates, and topicals. The flower is the most common form of cannabis and is typically smoked using a pipe or bong. Edibles are cannabis-infused foods or drinks, while concentrates are highly potent products that are made by extracting cannabinoids from the plant. Topicals are cannabis-infused creams or ointments that can be applied to the skin.

Choosing the type or form of cannabis that you want to consume purely comes down to personal preference, price range and affordability, and availability of the product. Each of the different products also offers different effects, different potencies and strengths, and more.

The Different Strains of Cannabis

As mentioned above, there are different types of cannabis, but these different types of cannabis offer different strains that can be consumed. Previously we mentioned that there are three main cannabis strains, two of which are Indica or hybrid strains.

Indica strains tend to produce relaxation and sedation, while Sativa strains tend to produce energy and euphoria. Hybrid strains contain a mix of both Indica and Sativa properties and are a great combination of the two.

When looking at the different strains, there are different types within each strain that you can choose from, which can vary in flavor, potency, smell, and more.

The Different Potencies of Cannabis

Cannabis also comes in different potencies, which are measured by the amount of THC they contain. THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the “high” feeling associated with consuming the plant. Products with high THC levels can produce strong effects, while products with low THC levels can produce milder effects.

You can also get CBD products that contain little to no THC I do not offer any kind of high or euphoric effect. Rather, these offer medicinal or healing effects.

The Different Ways To Consume Cannabis

Finally, it is important to know that there are different ways to consume cannabis. The most common way to consume cannabis is by smoking it, but it can also be consumed through vaping, eating, drinking, or applying it topically.

It is important to know how each method of consumption affects the body before trying it. Many beginners choose to smoke a joint the first time they consume cannabis, as it is the cheapest and easiest method of consumption. However, if you do not enjoy smoking, there are alternate methods of consumption that you can try when consuming cannabis for the first time.
