When it comes to vaping HHC, it’s all about getting that blissful, uplifting high that comes from this cannabinoid’s unique psychoactive properties. But, there is another aspect that’s worth paying attention to, which is the strain. The strain of a vape cart or disposable comes from the terpenes that are added to the vape oil formula, which match those found naturally in a particular cultivar of cannabis.
Why the Strain Matters More Than You Might Think
Each cultivar, or strain, of cannabis has its own terpene profile, and this matters a lot because each terpene in the plant is associated with specific effects. So, each strain can have extremely distinctive qualities that determine what your high feels like. Besides that, every strain has its own flavor profile, because terpenes in cannabis are responsible for how the plant tastes.
Strains fall into one of the three categories below:
- Indica: Most commonly enjoyed in the evening, because they can cause a feeling of laziness, and produce a body high that makes you want to stay put for a few hours
- Sativa: Good daytime cultivars because they can be more uplifting and motivating, with stronger cerebral effects and less of a lazy feeling throughout the body
- Hybrid: These are a bit more balanced because they result from crossing together an indica and a sativa.
Note: You can have a particular strain that is considered to be either sativa-hybrid dominant or indica-hybrid dominant.
