A lot of experienced stoners have their favorite go-to strain combinations. Let’s go through why that is and give you a few combinations so you can try them for yourself!
Whether you only have half a joint of each strain and need to mix or are just looking for a new experience, mixed strains marijuana can bring a whole new world to the experienced stoner. It’s available to take advantage of by both recreational and medical users.
Different strains will produce different symptoms because of the entourage effect. This is the concept that explains how cannabinoids act together to provide the psychoactive and medical effects of cannabis. When mixed in different quantities, these chemical components will act differently. With more than 100 registered cannabinoids, the combinations are endless, explaining the existence of so many strains.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
When mixing strains, you’re not only taking advantage of the cannabinoid mixture in each of those strains but also how the two flowers will work together. It will make a difference how much of each strain is in each joint and if you mix the two herbs together or split the flower halfway in the joint.
A lot of consumers will claim the high is better when they mix good strains. On the other hand, you might also want to tone down a certain strain by mixing it with a lighter herb. This might come in handy if you plan to smoke before an important dinner or event. You either mix or you simply try packing a smaller bowl or rolling a thinner joint. But we all know how much more satisfying a proper smoke is.
At the end of the day, cannabis is a very personal experience. Only you will be able to decide if you like a certain combination or not or even if you like mixing at all. Regardless of that, let’s go through some of the popular mixtures out there.
