A strain in the cannabis genus is a specific type of plant grown with pure or hybrid genetics. Cannabis strains are typically characterized in indica, sativa, and ruderalis strain groups. Different strains combine a variety of genetic origins to inherit traits from multiple plants. Cannabis strain names are sometimes synonymous with the effect, aroma taste, or look of the plant which help to guide consumers through their experience. New strains are created and crossbred everyday, with hundreds of variations already available.
