Most adult-use cannabis consumers and medical marijuana patients agree that different strains of cannabis result in different effects, which is truly one of the plant’s greatest advantages. Every strain is distinct because of its unique combination of terpenes, but can generally be bucketed into three broad categories:
Strains are measured on a spectrum from Indica to Sativa, and everything in the middle is considered a hybrid. Indicated by their place on the spectrum, hybrid strains can be categorized as Indica-dominant, Sativa-dominant, or balanced. Consumers may prefer different strains at different times, depending upon their personal preferences, time of day, and even the activities they plan to do while enjoying cannabis. Decide if you’re more in the mood for an Indica or a Sativa by learning more about their differences and unique attributes.
Sativa strains are considered appropriate for daytime consumption or for creating an energy boost. Anecdotally, Sativa users expect to feel a more cerebral effect with Sativa strains – making this type of cannabis popular for social settings and creative pursuits. Its high level of THC concentration is likely the reason so many people associate Sativa strains with bursts of artistic imagination, and the spacey feeling of a Sativa experience is frequently referred to as a “head high.”
Conversely, Indica strains typically contain a high level of CBD, which is linked to heightened feelings of relaxation. Many cannabis and medical marijuana consumers report that Indica strains have the ability to soothe both their bodies and minds. The heavy, “glued-to-the-couch” sensation that Indica can create is often referred to as a “body high,” and for that reason, it’s a great addition to your nightly unwinding process before bed.
It’s important to note that everyone’s experience of cannabis is different. Two different people can enjoy the same amount of the same strain, yet have completely different experiences. For an uplifting experience, we recommend starting with a Sativa strain.
