Stepping into the world of cannabis as a newbie can be overwhelming. Going into a dispensary, or taking a look at our online menus before purchasing might make a cannabis first-timer overcome with questions. What's the difference between all of these strains? What is the difference between sativa and indica? What are terpenes? How do I smoke this little nug of flower? How will it make me feel

To help ease the first-time cannabis experience for the rookies out there, we broke down what we think are the 5 best strains for first time weed smokers, with links to buy them right here on our site. 

Fire Angel CBD by Fleur

If you are brand new to consuming cannabis, it might be a good practice to start slow. CBD-dominant strains are great for first-timers because they offer lasting relief and calming effects throughout the mind and body without the psycho-activity. Fire Angel by Fleur is a CBD-dominant Hybrid strain with a fiery blend of citrus and pine-peppered terpenes (What are terpenes? Read about them here.) This angel of a strain is ideal for relieving pain and inflammation and fills the body with a soothing sense of ease that allows the mind to remain clear and focused.

Channel 2 by Remedy

Channel 2 is a rare, evenly balanced hybrid strain with high amounts of CBD, making it a good starting strain for beginners. The high begins with a creeping sensation of full body relaxation. These effects won't weigh you down but will provide a mellow calmness throughout your entire body. Great if you’re looking to uplift your mood and relax your mind!

Blue Dream by Rythm

Blue Dream is one of the West Coast strains that has acclaimed legendary status, loved by cannabis consumers new and old. Why you ask? Because this hybrid strain balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration. Blue Dream is a great strain for beginners because the effects are level and gently ease you into a calm euphoric state with a sweet berry aroma and flavor. Blue Dream is also popular for medicating pain, depression, and nausea. 

Jack Herer by Desert Grown Farms

Jack Herer is one of the most popular strains in the world of weed, and for good reason. Its mid-level THC content makes it a great place to start for beginners because it’s less likely to overwhelm the user with heavy head highs. If there is a single word that could describe the effects of Jack Herer, it would be blissful. It provides the cerebral elevation of a sativa with the tranquility of an indica.

DosiFace by Bohemian Brothers

With an incredible terpene profile, this indica strain is a great product to start with if you’re interested in the calming physical effects cannabis can provide. DosiFace will slowly take over your body and mind creating a relaxing and meditative state. The beautiful colors of this strain are backed by sweet and earthy aromas. She is perfect for that day off spent on the couch.
