7 Best Marijuana Strains for Beginners

Let’s face it, not all of us are Seth Rogen when it comes to using marijuana. Some of you may be beginners or even first-time users trying to gauge how to begin your cannabis using experience. If that’s the case for you, here are seven marijuana strains that are perfect for beginning users:

7. Harlequin

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.

2. Blue Dream

Blue Dream is perhaps the most popular marijuana strain in America. It’s not a overly powerful strain, and it doesn’t have any unusual characteristics (such as a pungent smell) that might turn off first-time users.

1. White Widow

White Widow is a popular strain in The Netherlands as well as the United States. It’s a not-too-powerful high that delivers relaxing feelings in users. It’s also known to produce the “munchies,” which we’re sure is what you’re looking for.


Nowadays, would your parents still be upset if they caught you consuming cannabis? Parents these days have much more progressive opinions on cannabis, and perhaps if they caught their kids consuming, they wouldn't necessarily punish them. While some parents still want their children to wait until the legal age to consume (if they choose to do so, at all), others don't believe it would be the end of the world if they "caught" their kids smoking pot earlier than that.
