Cannabis Sativa Vs. Cannabis Indica: What’s The Difference?


When it comes to cannabis, there are two main types: Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. While they both have their unique benefits and effects, many people are unsure of the difference between them. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the key differences between Sativa and Indica, so you can make an informed decision about which type is right for you.

What Is Indica?

Jean-Baptiste Lamarck’s name for this plant was Cannabis indica, which means “cannabis from India.” In contrast to its shorter and denser leaves compared with those on Sativa plants as well as their broader shape, it has dark green surfaces covered by thick purple hairs.

Indica’s effects are typically associated with relaxation and a “body high.” However, this stereotype doesn’t necessarily apply to all Indicas strains. People who smoke them often say the most common thing they experience from using an Indica strain is a relief of pain while also producing sleepiness in users through its calming effect on mental activity; it can be helpful for those seeking medicinal marijuana as a treatment against chronic conditions such as arthritis or headaches but should not replace traditional medicine.

Indica Plant Characteristics

Indica plants are a little shorter than Sativas, with dense clusters of dark leaves and heavy buds. They mature faster so you can get your yield before they start curing! Indica weed has higher yields too- it’s perfect for indoor cultivation because these sturdy flowers weigh more after drying out (which means lots less work!)

What Is Sativa?

Sativa is a type of cannabis that originates from regions close to the equator like Central and South America. Many people tend to consume Sativa when they want their minds clear, but not too alert due to it being more mental than physical sensation-driven high caused by THC levels in plants grown at a higher elevation which have stronger psychoactive effects on users’ bodies.

Sativas are often associated with stimulation and mood-improving effects. Sometimes described as energizing, Sativa-dominant cannabis strains can boost focus or concentration depending on how they’re consumed. Sativa’s most common traits include: being creative; increasing productivity levels through improved task completion time; creating a cerebral atmosphere.

Sativa Plant Characteristics

The high humidity and ample sunlight in the tropical regions make it an ideal place for cultivating Sativa. The thin leaves of these plants are typically light green, with dark markings on their stems that give them a finger-like appearance as well. These can grow up to 10 feet tall during bloom time but will only increase by 200 -300%.

What Is Hybrid Cannabis?

Hybrid cannabis is a result of years and crossed varieties to find that perfect balance. There are thousands upon thousand, if not millions in total; all with their unique characteristics due largely to cross-breeding several different cultivars or phenotypes together!

The effects of a hybrid strain can vary depending on what parent it has. For example, if you combine an Indica-dominant variety with Sativa parents then expect more mental than physical stimulation due to the former’s relaxing nature whereas combining something like this would result in higher levels of creativity/motivation as well as improved moods for those who suffer from depression or anxiety issues!
