The Debate on Strains

2 years, 2 months ago

As I’m sure all of you are aware, there are many different strains of marijuana.
I’m thoroughly convinced that there are differences between strains, and I don’t mean just whether or not it’s a sativa or indica, but all the different varying effects… for example, one strain might make you feel more creative and energetic while giving you drymouth, when another may just make you tired and relaxed and make you very hungry, ect ect.

A buddy of mine was trying to tell me that strains were made up as a device for dealers to sell at different prices, essentailly ripping you off, because “weed is weed” and it’s all the same. This does not take into consideration how well the plant was cared for, how it was trimmed or grown, ect.

I’m wondering what your take on this is, what your experiences are with this, and of course what your favorite strain is =P

@hallucinate, This is very true — they have different effects. Each strain has a different level of THC as well as type (indica/sativa). They taste different too..just think of wine. Wine has a different taste/smell/alcoholic content. Marijuana is just the same.

you are correct, different strains of weed will give you a different kind of high, taste different, have different texture, and of course smell different. my favorite strain is chem dawg :)

If your ever interested read the weed growing bible. (thats not the actual name, but thats what growers call it) It gives you the reason, its no debate. But I’m bored so I’ll spoil it for you. The reason beyond just the strain that you get a different high is because THC aside, there are many other cannaboids contained in each strain. The different levels of each of these determine the high you get.

@scew, Are you talking about the balance between THC and CBD?

BTW I think my personal favorite might be OG Kush but I also really like Blue Dream =]

@hallucinate, That is precisely what I was talking about. Ha I read the bible awhile ago so i forgot they classify all of them just as CBD or Cannabinoids. (I spelled it wrong in my first post lol) But yeah it is the THC to CBD balance as well as the types of CBD’s.

I can’t believe this, haha. If you’ve bought weed more than once you will see the difference in appearance, smell, density, high, taste etc.

Sour Diesel= Fruitier smell + Mood changer happy high

Cheese= Heavy heavy smell + Superglues me to the couch

I’ve been out of the pot game for some time, but back in the day the best types were called ‘Skunk’ and ‘Mango’, skunk was really powerful, you would have 1 cone and see if you would risk another, you may freak out or you may green out. Mango was the best, you’d have 2 or 3 and it was enough, you’d have a real mellow high but you were off-tree.
There was also a bud called ‘Nimbin’ I don’t know if I ever tried it, probably considering how much I smoked, but it had a reputation as the best. (I live in Australia btw)
