What are the Differences Between Indicas, Sativas and Hybrids?
Indicas are very effective for overall pain relief and is often used to treat insomnia for many people. Medical marijuana patients most commonly smoke Indica buds in the late evening or even right before bed due to how sleepy and tired you become when high from an Indica strain of marijuana, like Kush.
Benefits of Indica:
- Relieves body pain
- Relaxes muscles
- Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
- Relieves headaches and migraines
- Relieves anxiety or stress
Dominant marijuana strains tend to have a more grassy type odor to the buds providing an uplifting, energetic and 'cerebral' high that is best suited for daytime smoking. A sativa high is one filled with creativity and energy as being high on sativa can spark new ideas and creations. Many artists take advantage of the creative powers of cannabis sativa (marijuana) to create paintings.
Benefits of Sativa:
- Feelings of well-being and at-ease
- Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
- Stimulates and energizes
- Increases focus and creativity
- Fights depression
There are a wide range of cannabis strains in between Indica and Sativa. These strains are known as 'Hybrids' and show traits directly related to the genetics in its lineage. Hybrids can be broken down into three basic categories:
Sativa-dominant Hybrids: Cerebral high with a relaxing body effect. Provides physical and mental relief.
Even Hybrids (50/50): Ideal strains for people seeking a perfect balance of head and body.
Indica-dominant Hybrids: These strains provide a full-body pain relief, with a relaxing head high. Recommended for nighttime use to go to sleep, or daytime relief from minor pain. These strains are perfect for patients who suffer from all types of autoimmune diseases as well as insomnia or depression.
