To Sativa or Indica? That is the Question.

The choice of which strain of weed is better for you largely depends on your situation. There is no simple answer to fit all. Of course, that answer may be determined by whether you’re choosing between daytime activity or nighttime couch-locking. Maybe you actually need more of the sedative, body buzz treatment for a condition vs a more energized outlook, no matter what the time of day.

Sativa Dominant Strains

Sativa dominant strains produce more of an elevated, higher energy head high is considered more of a sensory stimulator and are better for socializing. Consumers of Sativa dominant strains typically experience more vibrant colour, light, and sound perceptions. Originating from a more tropical climate, such as Columbia, Mexico, or Southeast Asia, it is lankier cannabis, with comparatively longer thinner leaves than Indica. Sativa strains contain higher levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and lower CBD (cannabidiol) levels.

Indica Dominant Strain

Indica dominant strains produce more relaxing and sedative effects. They also have a higher CBD (cannabidiol) content than Sativa. CBDs are used by medical patients for relief of pain, anxiety and depression, and for stimulating appetite. Indica dominant strains are typically used at night and provide an overall body buzz. Originating from cooler climates than Sativa, Indica comes from Turkey, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, where it was originally the strain used in the making of hashish. Indica is a shorter and stockier plant than Sativa, with shorter and plumper leaves. It also grows faster and has a higher yield than Sativa.

It’s A Personal Choice

So, which one is right for you? Ultimately, it is a matter of personal preference. If you’re looking for a relaxed evening experience, that eases pain, without a lot of socializing, Indica might be the best weed for you. But if you need a little boost of energy during the day, or you will be involved in socializing, Sativa could be the better choice.

You may need the type of medical therapy that is best provided by Indica, or the kind of spark of energy offered by Sativa. It may simply be a matter of your situation at the time. In general, most consumers look to Indica dominant strains for medical conditions, and Sativa dominant strains are preferred for recreational use.

Despite the intrinsic characteristics of the two strains, the effects can differ widely from one person to the next and are influenced by other factors such as dosage, tolerance, metabolism, body mass, method of use, and other added ingredients.

The CBD-to-THC ratio may also matter. Generally, it’s understood that strains that are predominant and high in THC are more likely to cause an intoxicating “high,” and research suggests that high doses of solely CBD (300 to 600 milligrams) may cause a calming effect. Modern marijuana is pretty much all hybrid stock and shares a balance of characteristics from both parent strains, so consumers have a wider range of options to choose from when determining the variety that fits them best.
