Below are some of the criteria which will help you in choosing the perfect cannabis strain:
Aroma and Flavor: Terpene profile in the cannabis will help in producing intense or subtle aromas and flavors. Depending on the personal preferences, you would be able to choose the strain which will provide the aroma and flavor that would be appealing to you.
Desired effects: Everyone has a different reaction to cannabis. And there is no guarantee that the strain will produce the same effect. You will have to try the strains with terpene and cannabinoid profile which will likely produce the desired effect. For example, for getting intoxicating effects, it is recommended to go with a high content of THC. If you are looking for a more relaxing experience then you can try strain which contains linalool, which is a terpene as reported to have stress-relieving properties.
Potency: Potency is depending on the concentration of THC and cannabinoids strains. Some strains are more potent than others. Looking at the level of potency will help you in deciding which strains to try. If you want an intense effect, then go for more potent. Similarly, less potent weed strains will be less intense.
Growing Method: Some people are having a preference for growing weed indoors or outdoors. If you are also one among them then obviously you also need to try the strains which will align with your personal preference.
Potential medical benefits: depending on the ratio of cannabinoid and terpene profile, there are a variety of medicinal properties. If you are looking for treating medical conditions from cannabis, then you need to talk with the medical professional and find out which strains would be helpful to you.
Budget: Strains are available at every price point. Budget will play a big role in deciding which cannabis strains you need to try.
