When you are browsing selections of cannabis, you may notice that they are often categorized into two groups, Indica and Sativa. What do these mean and what is the difference? Each strain has a different effect on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medical benefits that THC has to offer.
Typically Indica provides a sense of complete body and muscle relaxation, or a sedating feeling. That is why this strain is commonly used for unwinding after a long day or relaxing before bed. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Sativa, on the other hand, tends to provide a more energizing, stimulating experience. Sativa is a great strain for when you will be active during the day, for example attending a social gathering or going on a hike. This strain can increase focus and creativity as well as treat chronic pain.
When it comes to choosing the strain that is right for you, it is important to decide what effects you want from marijuana. If you have read the description and feel like neither of these strains fit exactly the feeling you are looking for, you may want to consider a hybrid. A hybrid is the third cannabis type, a strain that falls between Indica and Sativa. Choosing a hybrid could get you the perfect mix that you are searching for in a high.
