Indica vs Sativa: Understanding the Differences Between the Two Cannabis Plants
There are two main varieties of cannabis, Indica and Sativa, and each offers a potentially different experience. Understanding the difference between the two is important to finding the right strain for you. Each strain has its own range of effects on the body and mind. Clients report that Indica strains generally provide a sense of deep body relaxation and that Sativa strains tend to provide a more energizing experience.
Typically, cannabis Indica plants are short, bushy plants with wide leaves. Indica plants typically grow faster and often have a higher yield than the sativa variety. Indica plants typically have higher CBD and lower THC content. Indica strains are often used by clients at nighttime.
Examples of Cannabis Indica products
Cannabis Sativa plants are the opposite of the Indica strains and grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa plants are also generally a lighter shade of green than their counterpart, the Indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. Sativa plants typically have lower CBD and higher THC content. Sativa strains are often used by clients during the daytime.
Examples of Cannabis Sativa products
Cannabis strains range from pure Sativa to pure Indica and hybrid strains consisting of both Indica and Sativa (30% Indica – 70% Sativa, 50% – 50% combinations, 80% Indica – 20% Sativa).
