Takeaway: Cannabis has been cultivated for thousands of years to produce specific smells, tastes, and effects. Today, it’s an art form. Here are 10 strains that report high in euphoric and happy results.
Before legalization, to many casual users, marijuana strains were rarely a consideration. Now that customers can walk into dispensaries, people are learning that not all pot is created equal. Like most plants, cannabis has been cultivated over time so that there are now hundreds, if not thousands of different strains of marijuana available. Each strain has different characteristics. Some have a very small amount of THC to help patients mediate pain without the high. Others were cultivated to have high amounts of THC for purely recreational purposes. Then there are the innumerable strains in between.
Called, Tetrahydrocannabinol, if you’re into that, THC is the chemical in cannabis that gives people the feelings of euphoria that have made marijuana into a party consumption staple. It also helps to treat patients with stress, depression, anxiety and a host of other similar illnesses. Are you high with a case of the giggles? That’s the THC talking.
