% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When people go shopping cannabis in the nearby dispensary store, they must have noticed three distinct types of strains. These are indica, hybrid, and Sativa. Among them, indica and sativa are the most commonly used cannabis. Indica strains are physically sedating and are considered perfect for getting a relaxing mood. Sativa strains have the effect of uplifting the cerebral state. They go well with social activities and social gatherings as well.


Hybrid strains are a balance between the types mentioned above. The main ingredient of the indica and sativa are the cannabinoid and terpenes. Hence the former performs the role uplifting and relaxing. Therefore they are popularly called the tale of two strains weed.


Indica versus sativa weeds


All three are most convenient when trying to experiment with cannabis. The cannabinoid and the terpenes content of both are the factors behind the effect that they create. However, not all indicas relax you, and not all sativa energize you. It mainly depends upon what you expect from the predisposition that the indica relax you and sativa uplifts your mood is well ingrained. It is this belief that creates a profound impact upon you. The effect of a particular strain depends upon several factors, discussed in details below:


  • Cannabinoids: there are two types of cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The different chemical components of the plant create a unique harmony of effect. Terpenes and cannabinoids primarily lead it. THC helps to make you feel high and hungry at the same time. It also helps to relieve symptoms of nausea and pain. CBD is a non-intoxicating compound, alleviating pain, anxiety, inflammation, and many more medical ailments. The THC dominant strains seek rich euphoric experience.


For treating pain, depression, insomnia, and stress found extensively. People use the CBD dominant strains for those who are highly sensitive to THC. For patients with apparent symptoms, they are accommodating with the milder versions. The balanced TGC and CBD strains, on the other hand, offer a soft euphoric experience to such people. They are best suited for novice consumers.


  • Terpenes: These are aromatic compounds produced from plants and fruits. You may find them in oranges, lavender flowers, pepper, hops, and cannabis. It is the reason these compounds make cannabis smell like pine, citrus, fuel, and berries. People have discovered multiple types of terpenes in cannabis, like myrcene, terpinolene, caryophyllene, and limonene. They create different types of products based on their composition.

When it comes to the consumption of cannabis, you have to be very careful. If your tolerance level is low, then you should go for low THC strain in a low dosage. If you suffer from depression and anxiety, you may select and use CBD strain, which has a high dosage. It would help if you always started with a low dosage and then simultaneously increase it. It will help your body get accustomed to the new chemical. Both cannabis are available in the market, and consumers widely use them. All you have to do is gather knowledge about what suits you best.
