If you are somewhat familiar with marijuana you will know that there are two main kinds of strains, indica and sativa. Indica makes you feel more relaxed while sativa can help you be more alert. This article will go over the main differences between the two.
As mentioned before indica is going to make a person feel more relaxed. Indica is a great choice for someone who wants to get relaxed before bed or before they watch a movie. On the other hand, sativa is going to make you feel more lively and uplifting. Sativa is great to take if you have a lot of work to get done or if you are going to some sort of social event.
Indica and sativa are also physically different. Sativa is taller while indica is short. Sativa has leaves that are narrow and indica has leaves that are wider. Sativa has long flowering cycles while indica has short flowering cycles.
A person may enjoy both sativa and indica. It may depend what kind of situation they are in and what they are doing. It will also depend on what kind of mood a person is in and what kind of mood they wish to be in. If you are just beginning your day it is best to go with a sativa. This will help you be more awake and energized. This is also great if you decide to workout in the morning or if you have to run any errands. Sativa would also be great if you need to clean up your house. It is almost like a shot of espresso.
If you have just had a long stressful day then an indica strain would be best for you to choose. If you are just looking to unwind and relax on the couch then indica would be a great choice. If you want to just watch a TV show or movie then indica is perfect for that. If you are looking to do some self-reflection then indica would also be your best choice. You could go on a nice stroll after you use the indica and enjoy yourself.
It is important to note that the effects you feel after taking indica or sativa will also vary depending on other factors like your own biology. It will also be affected by what size dosage you consume.
If you are not sure which strain to consume you could also get a blend of the two. You could try a blend in a variety of different products like organic cannabis oil, medical cannabis oil or hemp cannabis oil. If you get a blend of the two this is called a hybrid. A hybrid will fall in the middle of the two strains. Hybrids are also great to use when cooking. You can put some oil in any of your favorite dishes. You can even infuse the hemp cannabis oil into any cooking oil you already use. And if you’re looking to relax but you don’t smoke then CBD drops would be a great choice.
