Users can save the strains they enjoy and note which ones they didn't or
weren't the best option for a specific activity.
Cannabis Genetics is Flawed
Relying on weed science isn't always the best way to predict how it will
translate to real-world effects. Before cannabis legalization, information on
genetics was passed down from grower to grower without proper
documentation. As a result, cannabis genetics hasn't been as accurate as
Being mindful about each purchase can highlight how the strain made an
individual feel instead of the unofficial classification from the grower or
dispensary. For example, a strain may be labeled as indica, but if it gives the
user an uplifting feeling and makes them want to clean their house, the
categorization isn't helping them the next time they browse the flower
selection at their favorite dispensary.
In a 2015 study by PLoS ONE, researchers dove into cannabis genetics by
examining the gene pools of 81 strains. Using their chemical composition,
they "found there was only a moderate correlation between a marijuana
strain's genetic structure and its reported classification as "sativa" or
"indica." What's more, the strain names are even less meaningful when it
comes to categorization."
Tracking the personal experience is a much more accurate way to help make
the next purchasing decision. For example, a KookiJar app user is much less
likely to buy the sativa that put them into a couch coma before going on a

KookiJar also serves as a database of knowledge regarding the ever-growing
market of cannabis. While cannabis genetics aren't as well documented as
tomatoes or roses, reviewing information from other connoisseurs gives
KookiJar users insight into strains they haven't tried yet.
