The strains of marijuana are those that are formed by specimens that have common origin and characteristics. For example, Cannabis plants from Afghanistan have a completely different origin and characteristics than Thai plants. The strains can be formed starting from pure genetic lines, or by crosses that have stabilized so much that they have become a race of the marijuana.
In the history of marijuana were found different lineages according to different locations, the plant adapts to the environment and therefore there are differences that give rise to other characteristics. The searchers of strains began in the 60's and the most mythical races came out until the 80's and early 90's (in this case we can talk about the Skunk, the Kush, Haze, etc.). While in recent years, the most recent strains have emerged mostly in the Emerald Triangle of California (such as strains Gelato, Zkittle or Diesel). Some of these strains are the result of extensive genetic work carried out by breeders over many years and others are the result of chance and accidental and unscheduled crosses.
When we talk about marijuana strains we always talk about plants that resemble each other in aroma, structure and, many times, even in flowering time. For example, in the case of the strain of marijuana Skunk, we can expect that the straibs that belong to this strain always have the typical Skunk aroma, fruity and with a touch of skunk (although there are also those who describe it as glue, ammonia or musk). Thus, within the same strain, we can expect to obtain some characteristics that remain from individual to individual and that some others change, due to the unique characteristics of each genetic cross.
Within each strain of cannabis we can find strains that are the standard of his strain, either by being the original strain of the strain or because it is the most outstanding in aroma, potency, production or the set of all characteristics. Thus in the strain Skunk we have clear that the strain that carries the representation is the Skunk #1 of Sensi Seeds, in the strain Blueberry the strain that stands out most is the Blueberry of Dutch Passion, and so on.
The main advantage of categorizing marijuana strains by strains of cannabis comes when we want to choose strains that we already know and look for something similar but not exactly the same. In this way we can find within the strain of the strain that we liked and find other similar plants or that share a cross with that strain.
Thus, we encourage you to navigate through our selection of different strains of marijuana, that you enter in each one of the strains that catches your attention and enjoy the strains that we have selected as members of that strain. Surely you will be able to find many points in common between each one of the plants that you find in each strain and thus to choose the one that more agrees to you, or by its characteristics or its history.
If you consider that there is a strain that should be included in one of the strains and we don't see it there we encourage you to tell us, so that we can value and include it, offering more possibilities to our friends.
