The Four Elements
The first thing you should know about yourself before cannabis shopping is your element. There are four elements – Air, Fire, Water, and Earth – each representing the type of energy that most influences our basic character traits, emotions, behavior, and thinking.
Water signs, which include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, are characterized by heightened emotions and sensitivity. They have a deep inner life, which makes them intuitive and leads them to seek out intimacy and connection. Their depth of emotion and connection makes these signs unwaveringly loyal.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): This zodiac sign is deeply emotional, sensitive, and intuitive. People influenced by this sign are loyal to a fault, but don’t open up or make friends easily. Therefore, sativa dominant strains can help Cancers let their guard down and reduce social anxiety. A great stain for Cancers is Pineapple Express, a sativa dominant hybrid.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Scorpios are assertive, determined, passionate, and fearless. They are tireless when fighting for a cause they believe in. These are praiseworthy qualities, but these qualities also make Scorpios constantly alert and even distrustful. Therefore, Scorpios can benefit from some high doses of cannabidiol (CBD). The indica dominant strain Afghan Kush can help Scorpios let their guard down and enjoy some serious relaxation.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Pisces are compassionate, gentle, and empathetic. However, these wonderful characteristics can often lead Pisces to be overwhelmed by emotions since it is difficult for them to establish boundaries. Pisces individuals are also highly creative and artistic, so a sativa dominant strain such as Kali Mist is perfect to help them get those creative juices flowing. Furthermore, this strain relieves anxiety, depression, and stress – perfect for Pisces who are often weighed down by built-up emotions.
Fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius – are passionate and impulsive. Their emotions flare easily but just as easily simmer down. These signs are not ones to hold grudges. Fire signs are strong, intelligent, creative, and idealistic, which makes them natural leaders.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): This sign is the most active of all; Aries need to get things done and can get impatient with people who don’t share their energy and focus. If Aries smoke a sativa dominant strain, they can blow a fuse; better to stick with an indica dominant strain such as Ice Cream Cake, which will give them a bit of the giggles and then guide them gently into relaxation.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Leos are self-confident and dominant; they make friends easily and are natural leaders. This sign will enjoy an invigorating cerebral high but will also benefit from some indica to bring some calm and balance to this intense personality. Therefore, a hybrid such as Blue Dream is perfect for a Leo.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): This sign is extroverted, optimistic, and open-minded. Sagittarius loves travel and change. As with other Fire signs, Sagittarius are most compatible with strains that are mentally energizing and relaxing at the same time, such as the sativa dominant hybrid Strawberry Cough.
Earth signs, including Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, are grounded, stable, realistic, and practical. However, their practicality does not make them cold; they can also be very emotional and are loyal friends and partners.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): As an Earth sign, Taurus is grounded, making them practical and realistic. However, Taurus people also have a great love of beauty and good food. Because of their hedonistic tendencies, Taurus would love both the euphoric and lazy feelings caused by the perfectly balanced hybrid God Bud.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Virgos are careful and methodical; they like organization and even their dreams are clearly defined. Virgos are worriers, so a relaxing strain can help them get out of their heads for a bit and help them simply enjoy life. A slightly indica dominant hybrid such as Candy Kush will leave you feeling relaxed for hours without a negative thought or concern on the horizon.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Capricorns are highly capable and self-controlled; they turn their mistakes into learning experiences, making the most out of situations. On the flip side, it is difficult for Capricorns to accept that there might be other ways of doing things. Like other Earth signs, Capricorns benefit from a bit of chill and would love a slightly sativa dominant hybrid such as White Widow, which allows users to maintain mental awareness but relaxes them at the same time.
Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – are the most social and communicative of all signs. They thrive on social interactions and value relationships above all else. Air signs are intellectual and analytical but often need the motivation of a discussion with others to awaken this aspect of themselves.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gemini individuals perpetually feel like they are seeking their other half, which makes them highly curious and sociable. They are also adaptable, fun-loving, and never boring. A slightly sativa dominant hybrid such as OG Kush fits a Gemini well, enhancing their sociable and chatty nature while also balancing out their often-unstable moods.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Libras are peaceful and love balance, symmetry, and justice. They thrive on social interaction but hate conflict. Libras will enjoy the energy and focused euphoria of a sativa dominant hybrid such as Pink Grapefruit as well as the ensuing inspired conversations that are sure to follow.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): People of this sign are original and independent. They are highly intellectual, deep thinkers who are often involved in fighting for idealistic causes. They love conversation and fun with friends but also crave alone time. Aquarius will love the creative and happy energy that a sativa dominant strain such as Super Silver Haze provides and will appreciate the break from thoughts and causes that usually fill their minds.
