Cannabis strains come from the process of breeding male cannabis plants with females to create different varieties that include some aspects of each parent plants. Different strains are associated with different effects due to lineage information and terpene content.A strain is a specific variety of a plant species. Strains are developed to produce distinct desired traits in the plant and are usually named by their breeders (or by creative consumers). Strain names often reflect the plant’s appearance, its promised buzz, or its place of origin.
