CHOOSE YOUR DESIRE.
Our intimate relationship with cannabis is well documented, dating back as far as 2800BC. The Chinese Emperor Shen Nung listed the cannabis plant in his pharmacopeia. The magnificent plant spread its roots across Asia, where it was used medically and recreationally for centuries. As we learn more about the incredible benefits of cannabinoids and other essential cannabis compounds, we can use cannabis products with specific purposes and desires.
Cannabis can be used in many ways for various conditions. The effects you experience will vary depending on how your body reacts to each flower’s chemical composition. There are over 100 cannabinoids; while THC and CBD are the most well-known and abundant, they are far from the only essential compounds in the plant. Cannabis is also unusually rich in terpenes, aromatic oils that are essential to every plant’s evolution. Each strain’s unique concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes determine the plant’s effects.
We know that it might be confusing for new users, or even experienced ones, to choose the best type of experience based on the chemical composition of each strain. Therefore ASHARIO has created “Desire Categories”. These category breakdowns will assist in choosing the perfect strain for you.
Our five categories give you a closer look at the effects each strain has over your body and mind, putting you in control of your individual experience. Whether your desire is increasing productivity or falling asleep, there’s an exclusive strain suitable for your lifestyle.
Sativa dominant strains usually feature an uplifting terpene profile of pinene and limonene. We recommend Sativa forward strains for guests looking to be active, creative, or get some help knocking out some work around the house they’ve been putting off.
You can benefit from its properties while:
- Focusing on your studies
- Creating works of art
- Hiking in the forest
- Engaging in sports
- Going on an adventure
Indica dominant strains produce the notorious couch locking effects. We recommend Indica strains to clients looking to let go of their stresses and relax at the end of a long day. Indica strains tend to have high concentrations of terpenes caryophyllene, linalool, and humulene.
Pairs well with:
- Meditate and relaxing after a long day
- Watch your favorite show
- Taking a nap
The best of both worlds, hybrids are the perfect combination of productivity and chill. While most strains are hybrid due to hundreds of years of selective breeding, a rare, perfectly balanced hybrid is a thing of beauty. 50/50 hybrids usually have a diverse terpene profile featuring uplifting and relaxing properties from their parent strains, while blends are simply mixtures of multiple different strains. Blending multiple strains together can provide an equalizing experience, avoiding either the extreme of sedation or energy.
For everyday activities like:
- Walking the dog
- Trail running
- Go to the museum
Strains with high concentrations of CBD with low levels of THC are typically used for health purposes. CBD is non-intoxicating but still affects our endocannabinoid system. Using CBD dominant strains consistently can help users fight chronic pain, improve mood, and get better sleep.
Our CBD dominant strains will:
- Ease the pain
- Helps you reduce cravings
- Recovering post-workout
- Unwinding after a long day
1:1 strains are a blessing created by decades of selective breeding. They deliver the psychoactive effects of THC at manageable levels. CBD inhibits THC’s ability to bind with the receptors that produce the psychoactive effects, creating a balanced experience. We recommend THC:CBD products to customers looking for health benefits and a relaxing, mild high.
The strain used for leisure activities such as:
- Relaxing by the pool
- Reading a book
- Relieving pain
- Enjoy your favorite drinks and dishes
