Not all marijuana is the same. Indica and Sativa stocks have a number of benefits and characteristics that consumers need to understand before they buy. Here's what you need to know about the two main types of cannabis:
As cannabis becomes more mainstream, many want to learn more about its benefits and the best ways to incorporate it into their lives. The most common questions among new marijuana enthusiasts are: Indica or Sativa? It's incredible how many people think all marijuana is the same. Despite the lack of scientific evidence, primarily due to lack of access to research, users generally agree that Indica and Sativa have different effects on the body in many ways.
Strains and THC content determine efficacy more than Indica vs. Sativa, but there are some characteristics that most strains of any plant show. Today we will look at the differences between the two plants and how to use them for your needs.
It may take some practice, but you can see the difference between Indica and Sativa with the naked eye.
Indica-Indica plants grow naturally in Afghanistan and Pakistan and are shorter and wider than their cousins. The leaves of the plant are also underdeveloped and wide, and the buds grow densely.
Sativa-The classic design of marijuana leaves comes from the Sativa side of the family. The leaves are long, the fingers are thin, and the plant itself grows up to 20 feet in height. They are narrower than indica plants, the shoots retain more air and are less likely to require a grinder.
These effects are widely accepted within the community, but keep in mind that THC content, strain, and terpene profile can have a significant impact on mood. Sativa with a high THC content has the same effect as Indica. Some lower THC indica strains are more uplifting than most other indica strains. Talk to your doctor or prescribing doctor for more information on a particular strain.
Indica Effect-Widely known as the best strain for evening and evening use, Indica provides most users with a calming experience. Indica is commonly used to treat inflammation, insomnia and anxiety, and has been reported to relieve pain, help relaxation and reduce hunger. Indica strains are often said to give users "body height" rather than Sativa's "head height." This is the code for muscle relaxation and pain relief. Most, if not all, varieties of Indica have "afghan", "purple", and "blue" in their names.
