A perfect stimulation is an utmost need for anybody who tries cannabis. Well, most cannabis smokers are unaware of the psychedelic effects each strain has on the cerebral and the body. That’s where Indica, Sativa and hybrid strain comes in to play to regularize the needs of human strain and relaxation.
Sativa and Indica are the two parent origins of the cannabis plant while a hybrid strain is multiple crosses of Indica and Sativa. Hybrid strains may vary from 50/50 Sativa Indica cross to more Sativa dominant or Indica dominant based on the genetics percentage of strain.
Cultivation and Characteristics
As the strains differ in their effects, so does the origin of these two cannabis strains. Sativa grows out of hot, dry and equatorial climate whereas, Indica strains are native weeds hailing from colder climates in mountainous regions.
Countries with a hotter climate like Colombia, Thailand, and Mexico grows Sativa. Colder regions like Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan gave birth to Indica. Indica is believed to have originated from the Hindu Kush mountains of Middle East, a mountain speculated to be as old as nearly 55 million years ago.
Sativa grows out to be a tall plant with long and thin leaves, yielding out airy and light buds that are red, orange or rust in colors. On the other hand, Indica strains tend to have short, thick and bushy plants with buds being denser than of a Sativa resulting in high yields.
If you are looking for some uplifting effects, Sativa is the one to increase your energy and focus. So, if you have some creative project to go ahead for, crush some Sativa and make it reach your cerebral. It lends you creativity and energy for the entire day. It generally offers an uplifting effect for your brain that helps you dig deep in pursuit of creative tasks, stimulating conversations etc. The strain of weed which can make your morning blissful is certainly the Sativa. Sour Diesel, Green Crack and Maui Wowie are some of the best-known Sativa strains.
While Indica strains are the ones to make you sit on the couch for long hours with a maximum sedative effect. Indica is known for more of a body high than a brain one. Being said that, Indica offers you more of a relaxation and dreamy high. If you’re tired from work, grab an Indica strain at the end of the day. You might opt for Granddaddy purple, OG Kush or Afghan Kush for best experiences in Indica strains.
Hybrid is the right combination to enjoy both of the worlds. A ‘Sativa-dominant’ hybrid will uplift you whereas an ‘Indica-dominant’ strain will relax you. Feel free to go for Lemon Kush, Tahoe OG or Blue Dream.
The trip is yours. It is for you to decide.
