Feeling overwhelmed by the wide variety of cannabis strains available? At Coffeeshop Relax we want to help you understand it all. While there are hundreds of cannabis strains, they all can be traced back to two strains: Sativa and Indica. Hybrid strains are created by crossing Sativa and Indica strains, resulting in unique combinations of taste, smell and effect.

The challenge in distinguishing strains is mainly due to the naming conventions used in coffee shops, as each shop is free to give cannabis strains their own unique name. However, some strains are commonly recognized under the same name in different coffee shops. Here are a few of the most popular strains and their effects:

  • Amnesia
    This Sativa-dominant strain is known for its high THC content and uplifting, energetic effect. It can cause short-term memory loss after use, but many users appreciate its invigorating effects.
  • Haze
    This Sativa-dominant strain has a sweet taste and a spicy aroma and produces a psychoactive effect.
  • Purple weed
    Certain strains have a blue or purple color due to compounds that are activated at lower temperatures, such as the Blueberry strain.
  • Cheese
    This Indica-dominant strain gets its name from its strong, cheddar-like aroma and produces a mild high.
  • Power plants
    As a Sativa-dominant strain, Power Plant has a high THC content and produces an intense high.
  • Northern Lights
    This Indica-dominant strain is known for its medicinal properties, with a spicy taste and a relaxing effect.
  • White Widow
    One of the most famous Indica-dominant strains in the world, White Widow has a fruity taste and produces a super chill high. An additional advantage is that the original White Widow was a Dutch invention ;).

Understanding the differences between strains will help you choose the right one for the desired effect.
