HOW DO I FIND THE BEST WEED STRAINS FOR ME?

Finding the right cannabis strain requires practice & patience. Think of sampling cannabis like buying the lipstick versus the dress. Try a gram at a time and keep a strain journal to determine the cannabinoids and terpenes best to treat your specific condition.

AN OUNCE
1 OZ = 28 GRAMS
