7 Best Marijuana Strains for Beginners


Starting with a strain that’s low in THC and high in CBD is usually a good start for beginners, so they won’t get too high while still feeling most of the effects of cannabis. Harlequin is routinely considered one of the best high CBD, low THC strains available.

6. AC/DC

Obviously if you’re a metalhead, this is a great strain for you. But like Harlequin, it’s also a high CBD, low THC strain that will help you relax and just slowly work your way into the marijuana using world.

5. Jack Herer

Maybe you do want to try something a little higher in THC so you can know if that’s what you want. Jack Herer would be a good strain to begin with. With a moderate THC amount, it won’t set off some of the drug’s more potent side effects, like anxiety or paranoia.

4. Plushberry

Another moderate THC strain, Plushberry will ease you into the THC experience without giving you a too-powerful high.

3. Hindu Kush

Hindu Kush is a bit more powerful, so you won’t want to do too much of it on your first try. But it is known for being a very relaxing strain, so it shouldn’t cause you to freak out like other strains.
