What to Know About Weed Stains, Types, and Unique Effects
The weed enjoyed by health enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and recreational users today has evolved dramatically from the unimpressive shrub that was introduced into human pharmacology many millennia ago on the Hindu Kush. Yet all of this derives from the same basic types of the cannabis plant: Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Sativa, and Cannabis Ruderalis.

These three types of marijuana plants have undergone an exhaustive breeding process to create unique strains of weed that are better suited for specific effects. For example, cannabis ruderalis has a high content of the cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol). This type of weed has been emphasized in strains used in medicinal Marijuana and the hemp industry.

Indica and Sativa strains have also been bred, cross-bred, and bred selectively to create a wide range of "designer strains" characterized by the unique experience they can provide to the user. Designer strains are carefully cultivated to produce a selective quantity of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other secondary metabolites that factor into the flavors, aromas, potency, and unique psychotropic effects of the marijuana experience.

To give you a better idea of what to expect from the various weed strains, here are some of the prevalent strains of Marijuana found in the markets today.

  • Sour Diesel — this special strain showcases the high-energy mental effects of cannabis Indica mellowed with the physical relaxation of cannabis Indica. This strain has a very high THC content and is characterized by a sudden head rush. Sour Diesel receives its name from the unmistakable aroma or petroleum fuels produced in the flower, or bud, of the plant. The buds themselves are not especially large, and the flowers are a greenish-yellow color. It is called "sour" because of the flavor array that is described as pungent, citrus, and skunky. This is a good choice for those suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression. It is also employed by those seeking an alternative to pharmaceutical pain-controlling medications. Sour Diesel is also an excellent option for increasing the appetite.
  • Purple Kush — as its name implies, Purple Kush is characterized by a purple flower and its origins in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. Purple Kush is a hybrid of two other impressive strains, Purple Afghani and Hindu Kush. This is a pure Indica strain and one of today's most popular weed strains. Purple Kush is the best option for those seeking complete relaxation and relief from pain.
  • Blue Dream — this impressive strain has a decidedly Sativa heritage and is known for its energetic headrush. It is also an enigma, as no one is quite sure how and when the Blue Dream stain came to be. Blue Dream is also famous for its delicious flavor profile that is fruity and sweet. Blue Dream is an ideal option for those suffering from chronic fatigue as it provides energizing effects. The mental rush it provides has been recommended for people suffering from anxiety and depression. Finally, it has soothing analgesic effects that can relieve pain and even address migraine headaches.
