With increased access to high-quality marijuana options, many people are considering taking a toke for their first time, or after years without using weed. For newcomers, the number of options available can be very overwhelming. So what strains should you be trying first?

Tips To Get the Best First Experience

First-timers should understand some of the basics of marijuana.

THC and CBD Content

The main components of a weed strain are its THC and CBD content. Each strain has been bred to get THC and CBD levels to the desired amount. Generally speaking, the higher the THC content in the strain, the more psychoactive properties present to get you high. CBD, on the other hand, is known to counter the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD offers several anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, pain relieving and other medical properties without getting you stoned. High THC strains often boast levels of over 20%, while CBD levels of over 4% are considered high.

Indica vs. Sativa

Indica and sativa are the two main types of cannabis. Indicas offer a relaxing and calming effect and give you a body buzz. Because they may “couch lock” you for a while, indica strains are best suited for night time use. Sativas offer an uplifting, energetic effect and tend to give a cerebral or “head high” but can make you feel more paranoid or anxious. Because of their unique characteristics, indica and sativa strains are often cross-bred to a variety of hybrid strains for a more balanced high.

Start Slow

Weed strains all have unique effects, not to mention everyone experiences their high differently. For these reasons, there is no obvious winner when it comes to choosing the best strain. We recommend checking out weed strains with a lower THC content and working your way up from there. No matter which strain you’re using, the most important thing to remember is to start slow. Use a small amount at first so that you can gauge what you can handle. Only consume a bit more if you are still feeling calm after half an hour.
