Have you ever had the thought ‘where do I start?’ when it comes to consuming cannabis? It may seem like a lot to learn prior to even stepping foot in a dispensary. Well, let’s get some things cleared up for you. If you’re just getting started in your exploration of cannabis, there are just a few key points to note heading in. In this case, I’m going to help clear any confusion on the differences between Indica and Sativa cannabis strains.
Whether or not you’re looking for something specific out of your high, there is still value in learning. Cannabis is a complex plant and knowing the ins and outs of what you’re consuming is never a bad idea. With legalization on medical and recreational levels, research is abundant and constantly expanding. But for now, let’s just stick to the more simple distinctions.
My article on women’s health and cannabis with Respect My Region discerns the differences between Sativas and Indicas well.
“If you’re searching for that silly, relaxed and stoned cannabis experience, then you’re probably leaning toward THC. From there, we can start looking at the differences in Sativa and Indica strains. With the legalization of marijuana medically and recreationally in the PNW, we’re quite spoiled for selection and quality. You’ll likely be able to find a high, and flavor profile for every occasion.
So, what are you looking for out of your ‘high’? Thinking of going on a hike or doing art, and want to feel energized and alert? Or, are you having a movie night in, or maybe having some trouble sleeping? There are cannabis genetics to target each and every desire. The Sativa versus Indica distinction is at the front line of this decision.”
