With its legalization in certain states, Cannabis use is on the rise. Popularly known as marijuana, cannabis has become a popular product along with its other compounds such as CBD.

From our research, we have determined that Pineapple Kush is one of the top searched for strains. So why do people gravitate towards Pineapple Kush and what differentiates it from other strains?
What is a marijuana strain?
Whether you are a marijuana expert or not, you are probably familiar with the terms Sativa, Indica, or hybrid. Those are the three main distinguishers of marijuana that many of us have become familiar with in mainstream culture. Although a great starting point, research shows that there is not a great deal of consistency when examining different marijuana plants to be able to successfully classify them into just those three categories. The many differences have created many categories that cannabis could be placed into, and that is how strains were created.
Different strains create different effects on the mind and body, and that is how the plants are classified. Similarly, to how different breeds of dogs have different characteristics, and when you are picking out a breed you know what kind of dog to expect, the same works with marijuana. By doing research and determining what effect you are looking for, you can adjust your use to only that strain or something with a similar makeup.
What are the different strains?
Although there are hundreds of different types of strains of marijuana, they are identified by measuring the percentage of Sativa properties versus Indica properties. So what are these properties we speak of?
Sativa is probably one of the most popular strains of marijuana, it is known to create a “head buzz” meaning that you will not get that lethargic feeling you may have heard about. It is generally uplifting and stimulating, and perfect for daily use as it will not put you to sleep.
Indica, on the other hand, is a more relaxing and sedating type of strain. It will give you that body high, lethargic feeling that many of us heard about. It is best suited for evening use or sleep aid.
