The Difference Between Indica and Sativa

Q: What is the difference between
Indica and Sativa?

A: Scientifically (and legally), all cannabis plants are Cannabis

In practice, Indica and Sativa are the names used to distinguish each end of the cannabis ‘spectrum’. There are a multitude of different growth-patterns, qualities and effects within this spectrum, most of which are a result of cannabis’ remarkable ability to adapt to its environment. Genetically, and in terms of interbreeding, all cannabis is in the same family.

Q: What is the Sativa cannabis high?
A: The Sativa high is often characterized as uplifting and energetic. The effects of a
Sativa marijuana are mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and well – being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. A few pure
Sativas are also very high in THC content. They are known to have a quite spacey, or hallucinogenic, effect.
Sativas are a good choice for daytime smoking.

Q: What is the Indica cannabis high?
A; The Indica highs are most often described as a pleasant body buzz.
Indicas are great for relaxation, stress relief, and for an overall sense of calm and serenity. Marijuana
Indicas are also very effective for overall body pain relief, and often used in the treatment of insomnia. They are the late – evening choice of many smokers as an all – night sleep aid. A few pure
Indica strains are very potent in THC, and will cause the “couch lock” effect, enabling the smoker to simply sit still and enjoy the experience of the smoke.
