TOP STRAINS - 2017 - MED AND REC

So many good choices - so little time.

Medical and recreational marijuana have been on the market in several states now for several years now.  By now, there is a wealth of information out there about who buys what. We've gathered data from the major marijuana websites and research groups and made our own conclusion on what strains are really the most popular as of the year 2017.

Marijuana comes in three distinct species, with sativa and indica types and hybrids (mixtures) dominating the consumer market in the United States and other western countries.

 

BASIC INFO ABOUT STRAINS

The science is coming in that allows us to begin to understand how the various cannabinoids in marijuana work in the body and affect the psyche. The main cannabinoid in the most popular strains is THC, the psychoactive component.  A second type of THC (V) has an energising effect as opposed to a sedating effect. The other main cannabinoid called CBD tends to pleasantly moderate the high.  Other components in cannabis called terpenes also work with THC and other cannabinoids that affect the medical or recreational experience.  


Generally speaking, sativa strains are more energizing and provides users with a"head" high, while indica strains are more relaxing and subdued  giving more of a "body" highs.  With that said, not all people respond in the same way, a few people react oppositely to the norm.  Consumers love energising weed, to get them through the day in style, as they say,  while few marijuana smokers don't want something sedating and relaxing after a hard, or easy day at the office.
