Best Methods For Choosing a Strain

Our top tips for picking the best bud suited to your needs.

Even the most experienced smokers can still have difficulty when choosing what strain to smoke, so we've put together our top tips when it comes to picking the right strain.

First and foremost, a crucial deciding factor should be the kind of high you're looking to have.

All different strains are packed with different cannabinoids, and while THC and CBD are the most commonly known, there are hundreds of different types, as well as many different terpenes that will determine what effects and feelings you experience.

But, don't worry, you don't need to be an expert in the field to help you make a decision. THC and CBD are the most well-known for a reason: they have the greatest influence on the effects you'll feel.

So, what does this mean?

Essentially, once you have a good understanding of the different effects of THC and CBD and you know what you're looking for, you want to look at the compounds in different strains and find something suitable to meet your needs.

Since most strains will have a make up of many cannabinoids and terpenes, including a mix of THC and CBD, you'll want to explore options that are either high-THC strains or high-CBD strains, or, a balanced mix of the both.

Once you have some understanding on the THC/CBD levels you're looking for, you'll want to start considering the different terpenes you'll find in each strain as these are what determine the more specific impacts you'll experience.

If you're headed to Amsterdam, pop in store to chat with one of our budtenders and discover some of the best options for you.

Best Christmas Movies to Watch When You’re Stoned

Amy Wilkinson

Getting high is proven to have a wide range of benefits for many, but above all of those for most of us, it’s just pretty damn enjoyable. We’ve put together a list of our top things to do when you’ve had a smoke, and we’re stoked to share these with you.

What Are Terpenes?

Amy Wilkinson

If there’s one thing distinct to bud other than its high, it’s that sweet skunky smell: eau de Mary-Jane. This can be, for the most part, credited to our dear, aromatic friends, terpenes. These chemical compounds hold an aromatic fragrance in not just bud, but many fruits, flowers, and plants.

Bud & Alcohol: Friends or Foes?

Amy Wilkinson

To start with, let’s talk about the big boozy, leafy elephant in the room: are green and alcohol just, straight up, an awful mix? While it’s not advised to drink many units of alcohol at the same time as smoking joints, many people can and do enjoy a light smoke with one or two alchohol-based drinks. But, there’s a good reason you won’t find many coffeeshops around that offer both booze and bud, and that’s the dark and dreary outcome that most who mix the two will likely encounter at some point in their lives.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Amy Wilkinson

Cannabinoids: what are they? So to cover this, we’ve got to get a little scientific here for a quick minute: cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in bud, and although THC and CBD are the most commonly known cannabinoids, there are actually over 450 compounds and more than 60 cannabinoids found in the plant.
