There are thousands of strains available on the legal cannabis market. While this is a dream come true for veteran tokers, those new to the world of cannabis can be overwhelmed by the possibilities. However, there are several strains that are ideal for most beginners to start their journey.
It is worth noting that cannabis impacts each individual differently. If you are on any prescription medications, please consult with your doctor before trying any cannabis products.
Blue Dream is one of the most common cannabis strains on the market. This Sativa-dominate strain is known for giving you a decent high while not leaving you couch-locked. According to Leafly, Blue Dream tests around 18% THC with low to none CBD yields on average. Consumers can find Blue Dream products such as flower and concentrates at their local dispensary.
GG#4, or Gorilla Glue #4, is an Indica dominant hybrid that promotes relaxation. This is a more ideal strain for consumers looking for a strain with more sedative properties. According to Leafly, GG#4 tests around 18% THC with earthy tones. This strain can be found in nearly any local dispensary across all legal states.
For those who enjoy more citrus-like flavors and scents, Clementine is a great beginner option. This Sativa-dominate strain embodies the fruit it gets its name from. According to All Bud, Clementine potency can range anywhere between 17% - 19% THC. While a bit harder to find than GG#4 or Blue Dream, Clementine products such as flower and concentrates can be found on many store shelves. Ask your friendly neighborhood budtender if they have any in stock.
