How do I choose the right kind of cannabis?
Choosing the right cannabis and california marijuana card online variety is an individual decision for every grower.
Cannabis strains are divided into autoflowering and photoperiodic depending on the factors that influence the transition to the flowering phase.
Autoflowering cannabis varieties are varieties that are able to enter the flowering phase independently of the light regime. They do this on their own when they reach a genetic threshold of maturity;
Photoperiodic cannabis varieties are varieties which enter the flowering phase as soon as the daylight starts to diminish.
Sexual cannabis is divided into male and female plants. Growers only value the non-pollinated, female inflorescences because they contain the lion’s share of THC and CBD. The male plants are needed to pollinate the female plants and to make their seeds.
Feminized cannabis varieties are genetically bred female seeds;
Regular varieties of marijuana – cannabis seeds that can grow into either female or male plants.
Choosing the type of marijuana
Marijuana plants come in three varieties: indica, sativa and autoflowers. Each species stands out for its individual characteristics and characteristics. These affect the plant’s appearance, growth process and speed, resistance to external negative factors, effect and flavor qualities.
Indica by its appearance is characterized by compact size of bushes, growth up to 1-2 m and dense elongated dark green foliage, growing on a strong and sturdy central stalk. The appearance of indica resembles that of a fir tree. This species originated in Pakistan, Indica, Afghanistan and Nepal. The variability and inconstancy of environmental conditions in this area, made indica a hardy and resilient plant. The growing season takes 2-4 weeks (depending on the variety) and the flowering phase takes 6-8 weeks.
The stone effect is a characteristic of the indica plant. It has a sedative effect on the body, causing relaxation and muscle relaxation.
Cannabis sativa looks nothing like indica. The bushes are slender and can grow to 4-6 meters in height. The leaves are slender and elongated while the buds are lush and oblong. The natural habitats of Sativa are in the equatorial regions of Jamaica, Thailand, Mexico and Cambodia. The climate of the area gives it the ability to grow and bloom continuously throughout the year. It is extremely susceptible to temperature fluctuations and is prone to stress. Its abundant yields are two to four times greater than those of the indica plant.
Sativa buds produce a cerebral effect called high-effect. You get a feeling of euphoria and a feeling of flying. Happiness and energy overwhelm the body.
Autoflowering strains are artificially created hybrids which contain indica and/or sativa genes mixed with ruderalis (wild weed) genes. Ruderalis is endowed with the ability to enter the flowering phase regardless of light conditions. Ruderalis is stable, undemanding and endowed with a stable immunity. These positive qualities are also adopted by autoflowers. Autoflowering plants are small and yield a moderate amount of crops. Thanks to the ruderalis genes, they are resistant to mold, insect viruses, and can also tolerate cold.
