Some various cannabis strains highlighted here but this is by no means a complete list of cannabis strains.

Cannabis strains and medical marijuana strains are very similar if not the same.  If you are growing, you can choose  the best strain of marijuana for your geographical area. This is not too difficult to do and can be done usually when selecting seeds. Indica, sativa and feminized are the basic cannabis strains that most people are familiar with. All of the cannabis strains have characteristics that make them identifiable and all have qualities that make them better suited to grow under a variety of conditions.

First we must review the basics on cannabis strains.

CANNABIS SATIVA STRAINS – The polar opposite of indicas. Tall, thin plants, narrow leaves, lighter green colors, grow quick, extend to heights of 20 feet in some cases. Origins are traced back to Mexico, Columbia and southeast Asia. Flowering times vary from 10 to 16 weeks, normally longer than indicas. Taste ranges from earthy to fruity. A good head stone. A great outdoor favorite.

CANNABIS INDICA STRAINS – Short thick plants, broad leaves, darker green, flowering in 8 to 10 weeks with thick dense flower tops. Flavours from stinky skunk to fruity sweet. Origins traced back to Afghanistan, Morocco and Tibet. More of a body stone. Indoor grower’s favorite types.

FEMINIZED CANNABIS STRAINS – Designer qualities to produce only female plants. Rarely are the seeds produced but can be forced. Usually passed on as clones.

CROSS BREEDS -HYBRID STRAINS – Combining different sativa and indica breeds will produce the corresponding traits of each mother and father. Actual percentages each strain will contain is not exact, but pretty close.
