Why Are There So Many Cannabis Strains

Know Your Cannabis Strains

As you may already know there are several types of cannabis out there and these are called cannabis strains. These are basically the names that plant growers give to their cannabis plants and unlike common horticulture, cannabis growers rarely give their plants their own name, as growing this plant is still an underground activity. 

I want to share with you something that I know about the different strains of cannabis that I have tried and I also want to tell you about some of the other ones out there and what you can expect from them. So keep on reading, follow us on Twitter @Zip_420 or subscribe to our cannabis club on the right, so we can keep you informed about the latest in cannabis news, trends and more.

The Popular Cannabis Strains

As said above, cannabis growers do not name their plants after them, because this is still considered an underground activity and it would not be convenient for them in any way. This is why, most of the cannabis strains that we know today, have very unique names and why some are based on the smell, look or feel of the plant.

Those cannabis plants that have a strong smell or that have a unique smell to them, get categorized under the skunk type of cannabis and these are certainly very good to smoke. Other cannabis plants, get the name of Blueberry and this is due to the fact that they do have a sort of blueberry smell. This strain is believed to have been started in Hawaii, which is an excellent region for growing cannabis and other plants as well.

There are even some strains that have been named after the famous Star Wars movies and these are also quite interesting to smoke. Skywalker OG is one of the most popular ones and it also has a distinct smell and causes some magnificent effects. If you are ever offored some Skywalker OG, you should really give it a try, as you will not regret it and you will remember it for the rest of your life. These are only a few strains of cannabis, but there are already many more out there, which are really great and are worth smoking.

Even if some of the strains have stupid names or sound like something that you would never want to try, you can be certain that you will get a buzz from them and that you will love many of them. Trying new strains every now and then is an excellent idea, but you must be careful with those cannabis dispensaries that just use a popular strain name to sell some of their lower quality cannabis.

How Are Cannabis Strains Created

If you have no idea how the different strains of cannabis are created, the following sentences will give you a better idea. Creating a new strain of cannabis is not that hard, as it is very similar to dog breeding and you will get better as you go. When breeding dogs, you basically choose the same breeds, if you want to get puppies that are almost the same as their parents and you choose different breeds when you want to get all different kinds of puppies that do not look the alike or even act the same.

This is basically the same when you are trying to create a new strain of cannabis, as you can get almost the same plants if you breed one single strain of cannabis and you can get very different plants, if you select several strains of cannabis.
