Cannabis Strain Reviews

Cannabis Strain Reviews from CanniseurCannabis strain reviews have not yet benefitted from the rigor that wine reviews enjoy. We’re going to change that! In the wine world, there are well thought out methods and rules for tasting. In the world of cannabis, it’s pretty much down to how much THC is there and does it get me high. Here at Canniseur, we are quantifying the quality of cannabis in our strain reviews. Yes, it’s subjective. So is wine evaluation.

As cannabis becomes legal in more places, it’s turning into a free-for-all where anyone can claim anything about any strain. And they do. And nobody can prove or disprove that this or that cannabis strain does what the grower or dispensary says it’s going to do, or that it tastes the same, smokes the same, or processes into oils, resins, or edibles in a way that creates a complete pleasurable experience.

We are developing a a consensus standard for cannabis strain reviews. We welcome your feedback on our reviews and our methods — comments are open!

The Best Strains to Celebrate Springtime

For the average person, images of sunshine, rainbows, blossoming flowers and lots of green grass usually come to mind whenever it’s springtime. But for people who like to smoke, it’s another excuse to combine to the best of both worlds and indulge in some season-inspired sessions. When it comes to spring smoking, it’s nice to reach for strains that are energizing and uplifting to match the boost in the weather if the sun is out where you live and go for calming strains that help you unwind in the evening to mellow out the hyperactivity of the day.

If you like going on the hunt for strains, keep an eye out for these at your local dispensary the next time you make a trip.

How To Review and Judge Cannabis Strains

What makes a cannabis connoisseur? Is it someone who can discern “top shelf” cannabis from “mids?” And if that’s the answer, what sets top-shelf cannabis apart and makes it worthy of that elevated placement?

I’ve been reviewing cannabis for years, but I only recently started judging cannabis competitions and the experience got me thinking about how both approaches can help regular cannabis consumers pick the ideal product for their needs. Yes, taste is subjective, but it is definitely possible to fairly assess the quality of a cannabis product. It just takes a little extra effort, an attention to detail and the right mindset.
