What is a strain of marijuana?

Marijuana “strains” are either pure breeds or hybrid varieties of cannabis, typically of the species Cannabis Indica or Cannabis Sativa. Strains are developed to highlight a specific combination of properties of the plant or to establish marketing differentiation.

Strain names are typically chosen by their growers, and often reflect properties of the plant, such as taste, color, smell, or the origins of the strain. Many people believe the earliest cannabis strains grew in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan and Pakistan and eventually spread to other areas, including Asia, Africa, Jamaica and South America.
