Getting Familiar With Your Local Strains

By: Ben Peddie, The New Scene

Before one decides to consume cannabis, its beneficial he/she knows what they may be getting into. There are hundreds of different strains that, to the casual consumer, might all seem the same. To an avid pot smoker, though, one slight detail could make all the difference.  It’s important to know what makes certain strains more potent than others, and what features are important to look at. Let’s discover some local strains and find out what to expect from them.

  • Primarily a sativa (the giggly, energetic kind of bud), but has some indica roots
  • Will leave you feeling positive and euphoric.

  • I spoke with Max Poling, Marketing Manager at Infinite Wellness. He says Jillybean is one of their most commonly recommended strains for the occasional smoker.
  • It has a “citrusy, fruity smell to it,” which is where it gets its name.
