The beauty of the cannabis plant lies within its contrasting versatility. A true cornucopia of assorted flavors and smells makes the cannabis plant fit for the true connoisseur. When it comes to the Indica strain, no other type is better suited for the medical patient. Everything from insomnia, anxiety, and pain relief will seek solace with an Indica strain.
The OG’s, Kush’s, Purp’s and other famous names to grace the Indica category are world renowned for their powerful effects on the body. All are of Indica-dominant backgrounds and are made specifically for occasions of winding down and calming the mind and body. A short plant, Indicas are broad-leafed and produce the fattest buds.
Aside from edibles, users will find that vaping these strains are much better in terms of effect and delivery when used in a vape. Medical patients in specific will find using vapes such as the Titan 1, Titan 2, and E-CLIPSE to be highly efficient in taking advantage of an Indica’s unique flavor and terpene profile. Perfect for getting a good night’s rest, Indica’s remain one of the most popular and accessible varieties.
Users who require a pick-me-up in the morning will find the energy they need in a Sativa strain. Haze is the name used for this thin-leafed variety and is often the longest in terms of height and flowering time. Known for producing modest amounts of buds, today’s Sativas are bred to be packed with high amounts of THC.
Complex in aromas and terpene profiles, Sativas are the sweetest tasting and produce the most cerebral and energetic highs. This makes them less suitable for sensitive and inexperienced users. While Sativas are known to be the most sociable of the cannabis varieties, medical patients will find relief from depression and anxiety in the right amounts.
Because Sativas tend to be very strong in their effects, less is often more in terms of consumption. While the same can be said about a strong Indica, first-time users will find that using a vape such as the AGO will be more than adequate to introduce and transition the user to acclimate to the stronger varieties in time.
While finding a pedigreed strain such as an Indica or Sativa can be ideal for a specific ailment, the majority of strains will fall under the happy medium of a hybrid variety. These are strains that may have more dominant characteristics of either Indica or Sativa, though remain the most popular due to their combination of being stoned and blazed at the same time. Yes, there is a difference!
While it could be argued that these terms are interchangeable under the influence of a hybrid strain, the fact remains that when one is stoned, they are experiencing the body-high of an Indica. When one is blazed however, they are referring to the effects of a Sativa strain. In either case, hybrids remain the best in terms of versatility and effects.
The plants themselves can take on characteristics of both Indicas and Sativas, making them convenient to grow. Examples would be having a short Indica plant with a high THC concentration. Hybrids are also the most ideal when it comes to making concentrates like wax and oil. Having a vape like the SteamCloud Box Mod for example can accommodate every vaping modality from dry herbs to oil concentrates, making it perfect for a hybrid strain.
