Aries is the youngest in the zodiac which can explain why these individuals are loud, proud and even rambunctious at times. Aries rams often prefer to consume high-quality strains because they know they deserve finer things in life. These individuals are also likely to consume a sativa dominant strain because they like to keep their wits about them. Aries are fun and funny people to consume cannabis with. They often help keep individuals from getting stuck in their head and many of these individuals will have you stuck in a laughing fit. If you know an Aries, you will know that they love presents. Do them a favor and gift them a more calming, Indica, strain for times when the ram in them needs to chill out or calm down.

Taurus individuals can be gentle and nurturing as well as stubborn. Taurus signs can end up being lazy due to their preference for more relaxing, couch-locking and munchie-inducing cannabis strains.

These individuals are comfortable creatures and make for wonderful, mellow company after having consumed cannabis. Tauruses love to get into relaxing, so perhaps toking up with a hybrid will be best.
