Picking a strain is one of the most exciting aspects of home growing. However, it can also be quite confusing given the overwhelming choices. Fortunately, Homegrown Cannabis Co. can help you narrow down the choices.
Experienced cannabis growers typically look for six things when choosing a seed to cultivate. A strain that fulfills all - if not most - of these criteria usually gets picked.
Cannabinoid potency is one of the most important considerations for buying a strain. Veterans prefer varieties with jaw-dropping THC levels - typically over 20%. Such concentrations allow for a mind-blowing psychoactive experience.
Meanwhile, first-timers and casual consumers usually opt for milder strains with 15-19% THC. Such levels deliver a pleasant cannabis experience without being overwhelming.
On the other hand, medicinal patients prefer strains with high CBD content and low THC levels. These strains typically exert little to no psychoactive high but are just as effective in remedying health concerns.
In general, cannabis strains can be classified into two categories based on their effects.
Those looking for mentally stimulating strains that improve mood, productivity, creativity, and sociability should opt for Sativa-dominant strains. On the other hand, mostly Indica varieties are ideal for winding down after a stressful day - thanks to its relaxing properties.
Meanwhile, for those who prefer both stimulating and relaxing properties, opting for nearly equal-split hybrids is the best choice.
Lastly, patients looking for relief from various health concerns should opt for medicinal strains with either high CBD or THC content.
Commercial-grade powerhouses are among the most bestselling strains - and for obvious reasons. Even home growers opt for highly productive strains that offer prolific a harvest for the best bang of the buck.
Anyone can grow cannabis with a bit of planning and research. Nevertheless, some strains require more care and attention than others. Hence, cultivators with little to no experience are advised to choose beginner-friendly strains such as autoflowering varieties. Typically, robust strains suitable with most climates are excellent choices.
A strain's flavor and aroma make the psychoactive experience even more delightful. Homegrown Cannabis Co. offers appetizing strains that can satisfy even the most discerning palates with its diverse scents and flavors - ranging from tropical to sweet, sour, and even diesel-y.
One of the most crucial aspects a prospective buyer must look for is the stability of the strain's genetics. Inexperienced breeders might cross a male and a female plant once then sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain. However, professional breeders exert considerable time and effort to backcross the strain for several generations to stabilize its genetics.
It is best to obtain seeds from reputable sources like Homegrown Cannabis Co. because our expert breeders uphold the best possible standards in breeding every strain on our collection.
If you're having a hard time choosing the best strain, opt for one of Homegrown Cannabis Co.'s connoisseur-quality stunners with tried and tested genetics. These best selling strains have earned the favor of our loyal patrons, so we guarantee that it is worth a try.
