Many cannabis cultivators graft different cannabis strains to develop new ones that target a specific customer base. Coupled with the mutation that takes place as plants adapt to the new environmental conditions, this has led to over 700 strains in the market today.
The number of cannabis strains out there can be confusing, especially if you are a novice and don’t know what to expect with each strain. Moreover, what works for one person might not necessarily work for you. This is because of the uniqueness in age, sex, and other body composition factors.
In this article, we take a look at an in-depth analysis on how to choose the best Cannabis Ontario offers.
How To Find The Ideal Weed Strains
What is Cannabinoid Content?
Users want to feel the marijuana ‘buzz,’ and the smell and taste contribute to the richness of the experience.
There are also users looking for the cannabis’ entourage effects. That is whereby different cannabinoids in the plant, available in various concentrations, act in synergy to interact with the body’s receptors or the endocannabinoid system.
What time are you consuming the weed?
As much as it would be fun to get ‘high’ in the morning, it might affect your productivity at work. Some people prefer winding down with CBD in the evening after a long day’s work, while others prefer the euphoria associated with THC.
Other people find the balancing effects of both CBD and THC due to their almost equal amounts in their products much more tolerable. Whatever your preference is, it’s good to choose the perfect time for the consumption of each product, depending on the effects you desire.
What is Terpene Content?
There are over 200 terpenes in cannabis, and each affects the flavor, aroma, and effects that the product will have. Therefore, to enjoy the whole weed experience, users often prefer a rich terpene profile on their weed. You also get to choose the smell you need from your weed, ranging from fruity to skunky.
Be Careful of Dispensaries Making Claims
Companies will use various ploys to get users to buy from them. This dubious set of values can lead to users getting knocked off or underwhelming effects from the weed.
The cannabinoid and terpene profile depends on the cultivation conditions, plant’s phenotype, etc. The only way to ascertain that their concentrations are in the advertised concentrations is through the 3rd party test results. Without them, be wary of the products, and if the compound’s concentrations sound too good to be true, they might as well be. Always buy strains from the registered weed dispensaries only.
When choosing the perfect strain that caters to all your needs, users should disregard any recommendations from friends or family here because only you can know yourself.
Therefore, new users will have to set aside time to explore the different strains and monitor what seems to work for them. You can do this by picking a handful of strains recommended by budtenders, with a particular end in mind. Start with low doses, working your way up to the desired effects.
You will soon have a natural feel on the cannabis strain that works best for you while minimizing wastage and regret.

You might think that low THC levels won’t do anything for you until you try them. Therefore, don’t be fooled by a high price tag on the products; it could be because of the expensive packaging.
In the same manner, you should not be afraid of investing in a high-quality bud abundant in many cannabinoids for the ultimate CBD experience. Some products might provide a significant response at low doses, as seen with concentrates. Remember to buy only what you can afford.
What Do You Need Cannabis for?
Cannabis can be used for insomnia, depression, anxiety, nausea, and many others. A high CBD content in the strain can help with that. For pain, an equal THC: CBD ratio can help with that.
What activities do you plan on doing after consuming your weed? What level of performance, focus, or creativity is required to ensure your work quality is not compromised? Answering those questions will go a long way in helping you choose the right product.
Consult your Budtender
Are you new to cannabis? Do you want to explore different strains? Well, your dispensary attendants are pretty knowledgeable on the matter. They can help give you a detailed encounter of what to expect, the proper dosages of each strain, and help answer some of your pressing questions about the products.
Scrutinize the Lab Results
The analysis certificates should give a detailed and accurate view of what strains to try and which ones to avoid. They also ensure quality by testing for pesticides, heavy metals, or mold in the products.
The long list of cannabis strains can be daunting to go through, and the tips above can help lead you to the most ideal strain. Remember to consult your doctor before consuming cannabis.
