Indica versus Sativa

Indica vs. Sativa: Cannabis 101

What is the difference between Indica and Sativa?

Indica and Sativa is the first step in choosing the right strain for you. Whether you’re a cannabis veteran or a first timer, it can be tough to decide which strain to choose, when there are so many choices at your fingertips. Do you want Sour Diesel? What about Jack Herrer? What’s the difference between Super Lemon Haze and Afghan Kush? While the marijuana plant has many different variations, every strain can be put into one of two categories; Indica or Sativa. Knowing the differences between these branches can go a long way in helping you achieve the cannabis experience you’re looking for.

While there is no hard and fast rule as to how a specific strain will effect you, in most cases Sativa will provide an uplifting, euphoric high, while Indica will induce a more relaxing body high. The heavy, couch-locking “stoned” feeling typically induced by Indica makes them perfect to unwind after a long day, while the energetic, cerebral high of Sativa makes it ideal for daytime use.
