How It Works

How It Works

Before you buy cannabis, find out if the strain you’re considering is the ideal strain for you, or if a different option may provide a better experience!

How does StrainRx work?

Our strain matching system identifies your ideal strain option(s) based on 4 sets of criteria, with a local filter to help you find what you need nearby.

First, select the class of cannabis you desire. Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid are your options, and you can choose one, all, or skip this choice entirely.

Smoking recreationally?

Take advantage of the EFFECT related options! Choose up to 5 and configure a desired potency for each.

Medical marijuana

You have the opportunity to configure the desired benefits you hope to derive from using cannabis. Select from 13 ailments that include relief from conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, and fatigue. Much like with effects, the potency meter indicates the importance of each selection. Users with no medical concerns can choose to skip this step as well.

Side effects?

Finally, our wizard allows you to specify any sensitivities to the known side effects brought on by cannabis use. If a strain is known to produce the effects you deem to be undesirable, we’ll make sure to exclude it from the final recommendation.

Don’t care about a little dry mouth? No problem, just skip ahead!
