Differences Between Indica and Sativa

Difference Between Indica and Sativa Effects

Jan 19, 2017

The differences between indica and sativa Cannabis can be dramatic.

Sativa and indica Cannabis products provide different therapeutic effects. Many people perceive indica effects to be sedate with a physical sensations while sativa effects are perceived to be energetic with a mental uplift. 

Understanding the difference between indica and sativa effects is important, but terpene profiles play an important role too. Peace Naturals client care representatives report they receive daily calls from clients requesting the best indica or sativa. Your client care representative will do their best to answer your question about the best indica or sativa, but they’ll want to discuss the entourage effect as well.

Terpenes role in Cannabis was studied by Ethan Russo in Taming THC: potential Cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects.

Cannabis terpenes modulate Cannabis effects and it is possible that it is the terpenes in the Cannabis plant that produces many of these effects. Our non irradiated Cannabis is grown with a focus on terpenes as well as its Cannabinoids. 

  • The terpene Myrcene (found in mangos) is found to be good for muscle tension, pain and sleeplessness.
  • Limonene (found in peppermint) can be a mood enhancer with potential for stress relief.

These terpenes work with THC / CBD to create what many people believe is a difference between an indica and sativa variety. Originally, these two terms were simply used to describe a plant species and not the effects they potentially create.

Indica Cannabis plants are generally shorter and a broader than sativa Cannabis plants which can grow taller and narrower. The two plant species have dramatically different flowering times, with indica plants flowering much more quicker than their sativa counterparts.
