If you’re new to purchasing cannabis, you might be unsure of which one to try. There are two different strains of cannabis, and each offers a unique experience. Indica and Sativa are the two main variations of cannabis, but there are hybrid strains that are composed of both Sativa and Indica DNA.
At Day Tripper, we’re committed to providing our customers with the information they need to make an informed purchase. The following article will discuss the differences between Indica cannabis and Sativa cannabis so you can fully enjoy your marijuana experience.
Sativa cannabis is the preferred strain for users that are looking for a daytime, energized and creative high. Sativa plants tend to contain higher levels of THC and lower levels of CBD. Sativa is commonly referred to as the “sociable” cannabis and doesn’t make the user feel as drowsy or sleepy as the effects wear off. Sativa cannabis can easily be identified by its slender leaves and its earthlike aroma.
Sativa cannabis is commonly used to treat medical symptoms. Users may smoke or vape Sativa cannabis to relieve nausea, physical pain/discomfort, tiredness, depression/anxiety, and various mood disorders.
Indica cannabis is the preferred strain for users looking for a nighttime high, as Indica is known for its relaxing and calming effects. Indica plants tend to contain higher levels of CBD and lower levels of THC. Indica is commonly known for its “couch-lock” qualities, as users who ingest or inhale it are more likely to lay on their couch and enjoy a movie or television show. Indica can be easily identified by its thick leaves and sour/sweet aroma.
Like Sativa, Indica cannabis is also used to treat a number of medical symptoms. Users may smoke or vape Indica to relieve insomnia, anxiety, stress, migraines, and a lack of appetite.
Make sure that you speak to one of our cannabis experts before purchasing Sativa or Indica cannabis. Although some people will use cannabis to alleviate medical physical and mental symptoms, you need to be careful, as both strains can produce side effects. For example, if you’re enjoying an Indica with intentions of being creative, high doses of Indica may result in decreased motivation. Furthermore, if you’re enjoying a Sativa with intentions that you’ll get a good night’s sleep, high doses of Sativa may keep you up or increase levels of anxiety.
