Regular cannabis strains are strains from seeds that are produced by the natural method of pollinating female plants with a male plant. Regular seeds will grow into plants that can be either male or female. The benefit of growing regular cannabis strains is that once the males are removed from the grow, these true female plants will be particularly strong and stress-resistant. For example, a true female will hardly ever turn into a hermaphrodite. The increased resistance and tolerance of regular cannabis strains can make them ideal for novice growers. Experienced cultivars can use regular cannabis strains if they want to try out a new grow area or growing method. With regular seeds, you know that your cannabis plants will grow tough enough to withstand variations in growing environments and that your plants will usually recover. Zativo’s list of the top 10 regular cannabis strains can help you find the right regular strain!
Cannabis aficionados know Sensi Seeds’ Big Bud as a strain that can give out-of-this world yields, but the strain’s history is also quite interesting. Big Bud had her origins in the USA but when the War of Drugs intensified back in the 1980s, she was brought to the safer Netherlands out of fear for possibly losing such exceptional ganja genetics in the turmoil forever. Since then, devoted breeders have tirelessly refined and improved the strain. Big Bud originally started out as a hardy Afghani with Skunk influences. Her growing vigour and yields made her an incredibly popular strain in no time. Sensi Seeds’ variety of Big Bud takes the strain back to those original roots and it definitely shows. She impresses not only with extraordinary production but also with her sweet, fruity aroma and a very potent high. While she could possibly “knock-out” less experienced smokers with her sheer power, she is a strain that is excellent if you want the ultimate relaxation or want a plant that has high medicinal potential.
