The majority of cannabis connoisseurs usually look for the same 3-4 aspects in a strain when it comes to shopping for flower. Every strain is different and unique in their own way, but what do consumers want most out of their weed? The answer is often potency. Experienced cannabis consumers will often lean towards a strain with a higher THC percentage, compared to a strain with a lower THC percentage. Then again, most marijuana enthusiasts have their own preferences and personal guidelines for enjoying bud.
While THC is the main contributor to potency in weed, it’s important to understand the role terpenes play in enhancing the outcome of a strain. Myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene are all examples of terpenes that contain aromatic compounds which give strains their own personal flavour profiles. A cannabis strain that’s rich in both THC and terpenes is a noticeably better experience than one that lacks chemical diversity. In this blog post, you can read up about 5 of Bud Lab’s strongest and most enjoyable marijuana strains as of July 2020.
