Different Strain? What difference does it make?
    #574364 - 03/09/02 06:01 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Ok, I asked this question a while back, but I cannot remember the replys I got.

Anyways, I want to know why some people say things like "OhhHhHH the GT strain gives such a great high, so many visuals." That's pretty common, I see many people praising the GT strain for its great visuals and amazing body high. I fail to see how GT can be different to B+, each strain has the same chemicals right? I mean shouldn't it just be a matter of chance whether or not it's a good high and you get visuals etc?


If someone can please explain this to me I'd be very grateful.

You might be one of them "hard heads". How much have you been dosing?

i've heard that while all cubies have about the same levels of psilocybin and psilocin, the different strains have different levels of other psychoactive chemicals that will affect a trip, i may have heard wrong, and if it's not true, then maybe it's all in your head, i personally like the way Mazatapecs treat the body and mind.

And I am sure there are varying levels of each of the above listed chems in different strains of Cube. Can you notice the difference between smoking an indica strain or smoking a sativa strain? I can. THC is still the active ingredient in marijuana, but different plants give different highs.

its the variouse akaloids tha cause the psilocybin and such to react with your brain differently. THere are hundreds of akaloids, so its would be very difficult to figure out which ones do what.

Actually Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica are two different species, where as GT, B+, EC, etc.. are different strains/races of the same species, Psilocybe cubensis.

Actually sativa and indica are not different species, since they can be crossed and produce viable seeds.

Hrm, both cannibis sativa and cannibis indica are members of the cannibis genus and then you have the sativa species and indica species, I believe, if the whole Latin naming scheme is consistent with every other plant, animal, fungus, mollusk, and so forth.

oh no, I can tell the difference between different types of sativas, outdoor/indoor crops, indicas, etc. too. i was tying to give a short yet easily relatable example.

So different strains do give different highs?
I just want to see if everyone agrees, if so I'm not going to grow B+ anymore.

Sativa and Indica are different strains of the species Cannabis Sativa. I don't know why they decided to name a strain the same as the species, but it's definitely all the same species.

I thought about that when I wrote that reply anno. The whole taxonomy thing confuses me, I don't understand what it takes for something to be considered a seperate specie.

What about Papaver somniferum and Papaver giganthemum, they can be crossed and often are, but they are considered seperate species. Papaver orientale and Papaver somniferum are also capable of crossing but are considered two distinctly different species. Does the ability to cross pollinate automatically mean they are the same species??

Different strains do give different highs some are more body buzz some are more visual some have alot of anxiety to em some have very little anxiety some have a speedy buzz and some are nice and mellow.
The Thai ks are really speedy strong but not unpleasant body buzz. Mazatapecs are nice and visual with a great body high not all speedy or overwhelming.
Mexi cubensis are nice and smooth too good visuals with a liitle less body buzz then Mazatapecs and a little less visual.
Ecuadors nice and potent great visuals and kind of a silly feeling a liitle to strong for me though.
Each is different and I'm sure each will be different for every person.
my 2cents...

There are other alkaloids that react with psilocybin/psilocin such as aeruginocine, trytophan, baeocystin and nor-baeocystin.
Stamets quotes the findings of Stijve and De Meijer(1993) who found .15% psilocybin and .50% psilocin in a domesticated Mexican cubensis variety and .15% psilocybin and .33% psilocin in a domesticated Amazonian strain.
That to pretty much confirms my person belief that different cubensis spore-races do have not only unique fruiting characteristics, but also unique alkaloid contents and psychology.
If i had two words for each of these strains in terms of my experiences of their psychology (all grown off millet):
Treasure Coast : nasty and lazy!!
Ecuadors : potent and mindfuck!!
B+ : weirdness and giggles
PF CLassics: visual and sickly
Mazatapecs: Visual AND vibe
Golden Teacher: potent and warm
Tassies: heaven and hell
PRs : total confusion.

Some i found pretty similar - others i found very unique (such as tassies and mazas)
