How to Choose the Right Cannabis


Having access to medical marijuana is a privilege that has taken many decades to obtain. When today’s MMJ patients go to a dispensary, they have a variety of cannabis options to choose from. They are quickly becoming familiarized on “How to choose the best cannabis.”

The smell, the look, and the lab results are all factors to consider when choosing the right cannabis. Now that there is such high quality medicine to choose from, patients are learning what specifics work best for them. The Sativa and Indica decision usually comes first. What type of experience is being sought: relaxed or energized? Sativas are known to bring energy and Indicas are known for their relaxation. An easy way to remember this is Indica = in-da-couch. Patient consultants (commonly referred to in the industry as Bud Tenders) can always recommend a hybrid variety, if something in between is desired.

Buds come in all different shapes and sizes. Some good things to look for when inspecting the selections are: is it coated with crystals, does it have orange hairs, is it purple or green? At Oasis, we carried a flower called Tangerine Dream that tested at 27% THC, yet it had minimal trichomes! This meant that trichomes (crystals) were not the tell all of quality.

The next factor to consider is the smell. Some common aromas to be expected are woody/earthy, pungent, fruity (berry or citrus, to be specific), sweet, earthy, and even a cheesy smell. After some time and exposure, patients tend to figure out what they like from their cannabis. Genetics are the foundation of the personality traits for the different strains. For examples, Pineapple Express is known to yield a fruity smell with a euphoric energy, and OG Kush strains are known for their woody pine smell and deep relaxation qualities.
