Definition - What does Variety mean?

Variety refers to the many types of cannabis strains that are available and are being created. There are either hybrid strains or pure strains of marijuana. Most varieties are developed to enhance certain characteristics. Some plants have been developed to boast ample tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other feature high levels of cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabis plants usually fall under two species, either Sativa or Indica. There is a third, less common, species known as ruderalis. From the species base, a wide variety of strains have been created.

Popular strains are then used to make hybrids. When shopping for a cannabis strain, the variety can seem endless. However, most dispensaries break down the varieties into three groups: Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid. Under those three groups fall innumerable strains. The variety is truly endless. Every month new strains are appearing to appeal to the recreational user and the medical marijuana user.
