Marijuana has, and still is, becoming increasingly popular, not just with millennials, but with those in all age groups from Generation X, to baby boomers, and even in some cases those from the Silent Generation. With that said, general interest in the various products offered to consumers has grown right along with this increase in popularity, and interest in the different strains and their names has reached an all time high.
Its no wonder people are interested in all the various strains however, because some of them have down right interesting names. Some of the most famous strain names include: Purple Haze, White Widow, Pineapple Express, Kush, Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, Grape Ape, Durban Poison and more. How these strains got their names however, is another question all together, though one with a relatively simple answer.
3 Factors to Choose From
Most cannabis strains obtain their name based off of one of three factors: the way they look, (specifically in relation to coloring), the way they taste and/or smell, and where they originate from. For example: the strain of weed known as Purple Haze, gets its name from the clearly purplish ting it exhibits, while the strain of weed known as Pineapple Express gets its name from the very pineapple like aroma it expels both before and during smoking and the strain of weed known as Durban Poison gets its name by originating in Durban, South Africa.
Regardless of which strain and/or name strikes you as most desirable however, mmj is fast becoming a standard within society, especially in regards to medical marijuana. In fact, consumers are now able to buy medical marijuana more easily than ever before, with more states legalizing medical marijuana every year and more dispensers opening up all the time. Furthermore, with the influx of business, many medical marijuana dispensaries are now even offering marijuana delivery services, which is great for those who may be unable to leave their home for various medical or personal reasons.
Overall however, no matter what your reason for smoking is, nor which stain you choose to enjoy, mmj is clearly on the rise and options for purchasing, as well as the number of products and strains available, are increasing every day. In fact, many of the strains we know and love today are being bred to create new and even more inventive strains, ensuring there really is/will be a strain for everyone’s liking.
