Ahh, springtime. The perfect season for enjoying some dank nugs of the finest cannabis. And when it comes to choosing the right strains for the season, there are plenty of options to choose from. So, how do you go about choosing the best cannabis strains for springtime?
First, it’s important to know what type of effects you want from your strain. Some Sativa or hybrid varieties may provide a more energetic experience, while Indica-dominant strains are known for their relaxing effects. If you’re looking for something to help you stay creative, or just provide a mellow mood, then Sativa and hybrid varieties are likely your best bet.
It’s also important to determine what kind of terpene profile you’re looking for in a strain. Different types of cannabis have unique aromatic profiles that can range from earthy and skunky to sweet and fruity. Take some time to research the terpene profiles of each strain you’re considering, so you can pick one that appeals to your palate.
