 Different types of popular marijuana strains

There are hundreds of marijuana strains, each with varying chemotypes and intended purposes. Marijuana chemotype is the ratio of THC concentration to that of CBD. If you are a newbie, you might want to learn about different types of strains. But before that, it is important to understand the factors that may influence the type of strain you pick. For instance, you might want to check on potency, availability, smell, or even your tolerance level. Tolerance level is the ability to withstand THC psychoactive effects. It would be best if you also learned how to choose the right edible dispensary. Prevalent factors to consider include variety and the ability to meet your needs and preferences.


So, what are the top marijuana strains? Well, they include but aren’t limited to the following:
