If you are new to Cannabis, then you need to find a strain that’s right for you. It’s usually best to start off with a strain that isn’t too strong because getting too high could result in you having a bad trip. If you have a bad trip, you could wind up not wanting to take Cannabis again out of fear. Starting with a more subdued strain is a much better way to familiarize yourself with Cannabis and come to love it. It’s also important to mention that you need to smoke in moderation. If you smoke too much of a weak strain, it can still get you too high.
Here are some popular Cannabis strains for beginners:
Diverging from this article’s main topic briefly, let’s cover hemp. Hemp is a different variety of Cannabis from marijuana. It is high in CBD, whereas marijuana is high in THC. If you are new to Cannabis and only want to take it for its health benefits, then you would be better off buying premium hemp flower and taking that instead. Because hemp is high in CBD, you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable highs and excessive paranoia. In fact, CBD has been shown to significantly reduce anxiety and paranoia in people with mental health disorders. CBD can also be used to treat a number of other health conditions. There are different sub-strains of hemp, so make sure that you do research and find the one that’s right for you.
Acapulco Gold is a very well-known and popular strain, which originated in Acapulco, Mexico. It is extremely popular with beginners because it induces a euphoric, blissful high. In addition to being very euphoric, it also massively reduces stress, fatigue, pain, and even nausea, making it a great option for people that suffer from digestive problems. Acapulco Gold can be found in most dispensaries. It is also possible to purchase the seeds and grow them yourself, as long as growing one’s own Cannabis is legalized in the state or country that you live in.
Purple Kush is another very popular strain with beginners because it induces a relaxing, subdued high. It is most often used to treat people that are suffering from muscle spasms, because of its sedative effects. Additionally, its sedative effects can also be used to significantly reduce insomnia in sufferers. Purple Kush is also used to treat pain, especially in people that suffer from chronic pain disorders. As with Acapulco Gold, it is very widely distributed and can be found in most dispensaries. It’s also possible to grow it yourself. Purple Kush is a great strain to start with, because of how subdued it is.
Sour Diesel is perhaps this list’s most famous and popular strain. It has been immortalized in rap songs and popular culture. Sour Diesel can be found literally everywhere, from the dispensaries of Amsterdam all the way to California. If you are going to buy Sour Diesel to smoke, then do remember that it can be quite strong in large amounts. If you only take a little, however, then you will be fine. You can expect to feel energetic, productive, and happy. Additionally, it is also used to treat chronic pain because of its powerful analgesic effects.
Bubba Kush is another Kush strain, that induces a sleepy, relaxed high. It is the most subdued strain featured on this list so far. If you suffer from insomnia or other anxiety-related disorders that keep you awake at night, you will most certainly benefit from the use of Bubba Kush. The best part about Bubba Kush is that it is very smooth, meaning that it isn’t harsh when you inhale it. You can also of course buy it in edible or vape form if you aren’t enthusiastic about smoking Cannabis. You shouldn’t smoke this strain if you have things to do, because it’s certain to put you to sleep.
Finally, we arrive at Granddaddy Purple, another very popular strain. Like Sour Diesel, it has been featured in myriad songs. Granddaddy Purple, like Bubba Kush, is often used by insomniacs, because it is very good at putting users to sleep. In addition, it is great for increasing one’s appetite. It can also make you feel very euphoric, making it perfect if you have been suffering from depression. Grandaddy Purple is widely distributed and should be available in any dispensary unless the dispensary with which you are dealing exclusively sells its own strains and variants.
Cannabis has a lot of benefits for users’ health. If you are going to use Cannabis, then why not consider the strains that have been outlined in this article (or hemp?). Remember, moderation is key. Whatever you smoke, make sure that you smoke an amount that’s right for you – don’t overdo it.
