Types of Cannabis Strains

Cannabis is bred in multiple varieties with specific characteristics that create particular strains and hybrids. Each type of cannabis strain contains a different concentration of THC, CBD, and other compounds. The wide variety of cannabis diversity gives each strain its own level of potency and effects. The ratio of CBD to THC ultimately determines most people’s experience with each strain. The cannabinoid potency label helps identify each strain’s chemotype to better understand the effects it may have on a user’s body.


THC and CBD are the most common active chemicals in every strain of cannabis. THC provides a more cerebral high, while CBD offers relaxing physical effects and is known to help alleviate pain. CBD does not cause the same mind-bending high feeling as THC for most users.

Indica vs. Sativa

Indica and sativa cannabis contain many of the same types of chemicals but offers different experiences for most users. Sativa strains are generally known to boost energy and creativity, while indica strains are more known for relaxation and pain reduction. Many people also enjoy hybrids that offer a combination of the two types of strains for the best of both worlds.

Cannabis Guide for Terpene Profiles

Terpenes are the naturally occurring chemical compounds responsible for the flavors and aromas of cannabis plants. Cannabis contains more than 150 types of terpenes to boost the smell and taste. Most of these terpenes are trace amounts, but the prominent compounds combine to create unique and specific flavors and smells of strains. Though not all terpene properties have the same effect on users, the most popular terpene selections include:

  • Linalool for relaxation.
  • Myrcene for insomnia and pain management.
  • Humulene for anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Limonene for stress relief.
  • Ocimene for uplifting feeling.
  • Terpinolene for anti-anxiety effect.
