Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid: Which Marijuana Flower Is Right for Me?
The wonderful world of Weed can seem a bit unsettling to new users. With all of the strains and names picking the proper variety can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Never mind the many methods of how to consume marijuana safely. While each specific strain may have its own unique characteristics, there are two main cannabis classifications that can be a nice starting point.
Each person reacts differently to strains and you will develop tolerances. Your best method is to try many different types of cannabis and methods of consumption to find which you like best.
Cannabis, Sativas, and Indicas: What’s the Difference?
It is worthwhile to mention that Sativa and Indicas are sisters so the type of high you get from each plant can overlap in effect. Most strains these days are of some hybrid form and can be classified based on the dominant strain. Contact Us for more information.
Sativa Marijuana Strains
Are you looking for an uplifting and mental high?
Sativa strains may be the right choice for you!
This classification, native to Mexico, Thailand, Columbia, and Southeast Asia, is known to provide the user with a more stimulating experience. The physical plants are known for their tall stocks and thin, fanned leaves, and can grow to a massive 20 ft outdoors.
The sweet and pungent aromas from Sativa strains are wide-ranging. Depending on the specific bud, the scent can range anywhere from fruity to peppery. Because most of the Sativa strains will offer a similar high, the user is given more freedom to select a proper bud based on taste and smell.
Symptom relief can range from ADD, depression, fatigue, and mood disorders.
example: Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, Lemon Haze
looking for some stress relief and a body high?
Indica strains may be your best bet!
Like it’s sister, Cannabis Indica can produce a nice mental high. However, the Indica strain is more of a couch binding, ‘Let’s start a Netflix marathon’ type of high. The indica strain is used more than sativas for medical purposes.
Also unlike sativas, indica strains have a higher yield and are believed to originate from the Hindu Kush, near Afghanistan. Indicas are grown shorter and bushier, 3 feet indoors. The indica strains have pretty much a universal taste throughout but flavors can range from fruity (kush) to skunky flavors (indica hybrids).
Symptom relief can range from anxiety, pain, muscle spasms, and insomnia.
example : Grape Ape, Grand Daddy Purple, Northern Lights
