There is a common misconception that cannabis is a “one size fits all” plant. It’s actually quite the opposite. Those who have not experimented with cannabis may not understand the full gambit of high ranges that cannabis carries. There are different strains and breeds of cannabis that will produce certain effects depending on the plant. Highness is not universal, so you might need to know what types of weed highs there are before a puff. You can achieve one of these major types of high depending on strain of weed.

  1. Relaxed

The relaxing quality of weed makes you feel good about yourself and boosts morale to perform activities. A relaxed person feels free of anxiety and tension. Blue Dream is a hybrid strain that helps to relax. This Blueberry and Haze cross produces a sweet berry profile dominant in caryophyllene, pinene, and myrcene. Purple Punch and Apple Fritter are the other strains that you can use to become relaxed.

  1. Uplifted

You can raise your spirits by puffing on some Sour Diesel, a strain that is known for mood blasting abilities. An uplifted person feels happy, optimistic, and hopeful.The medical cannabis community holds Sour Diesel in high regard because of the capacity to uplift the mood. The potent Sativa dominant hybrid is created by crossing Chemdog and Super Skunk. Its sour and gassy profile features limonene, myrcene, and caryophyllene. You can also achieve uplifting by taking Tangie or Super Silver Haze strains.

  1. Energized

Green Crack is the top example of a strain that adjusts a ‘mental’ knob to create an energizing experience. An energized mood that makes you feel enthusiastic and full of energy. It is a classic Sativa bred in the 1970s that tastes like earthy citrus terpenes. Caryophyllene, pinene, and myrcene are the three common terpenes. Green Crack is suitable for those who prefer taking weed during the daytime. Durban Poison and Jack Herer are the other strains that serve the energizing purpose.

  1. Euphoric

A euphoric feeling causes intense excitement and happiness that you can achieve by taking OG Kush. The strain is very potent but triggers a euphoric high that lasts for long without deviating towards feeling energized or sleepy. OG Kush is very popular among the hybrids and set the bar for most of the high potency strains used today when it was dominant in California during the 1990s. Kush is a word coming from an earthy, sour, and gassy flavor that leads to a powerful cerebral experience. The terpene profile of OG Kush is dominant in caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene. Other strains that can cause a euphoric strain include Wedding Cake and GSC.

  1. Sleepy

Are you unable to sleep and need to relax? You can induce sleepiness and feel ready for bed by taking a sleepy strain of cannabis. Granddaddy Purple is a strain famous for causing a sedative high. It is an indica that crosses Big Bud and Purple Urkle. Granddaddy Purple stands out because of its purple-colored flowers. Bubba Kush and Blackberry Kush are the other strains to use when you want to feel sleepy.

After understanding what types of weed highs are there from the information above, you now have the ability to choose a strain suitable for your desired effect.

The difference in effect caused by strains is due to the ratio of THC to CBD. THC is the main chemical in cannabis and causes psychoactive effects. CBD is another significant component that counteracts THC by causing calming effects.  Something important to know, your mental state, along with current surroundings also determine the brain′s reaction after consuming cannabis and the resulting high.
