How To Choose The Cannabis Strain That’s Right For You
With marijuana now legal for recreational use in eight states, more people than ever are giving cannabis a try. The “cannabis curious” in these states can now walk into a dispensary and buy whatever they want.
But for those unfamiliar with marijuana, that presents a challenge. Which strain of cannabis is the one you want? The easy answer is to ask the budtender. But if you want a frame of reference on what they are talking about, read on.
The sativa plant can grow as high as 20 feet. Sativa takes longer to flower than indica, as long as 60 to 90 days. Sativa produces a long, cigar-shaped bud.
Sativa is known for producing a high-energy boost. The effects are primarily cerebral, which is why people associate it more with a spaced-out, hallucinogenic feeling.
Because of the boost it provides, sativa often is the cannabis strain of choice for those who want to elevate their mood, fight depression and even focus better.
Indica grows more like a bush and has a leaf that is shorter, with wider leaves clustered closely together. The plant flowers in about 45 to 60 days.
When thinking of indica, just think “chill.” The strain is known for having more of a physical impact than sativa. It’s considered the strain of choice when you want to relax.
When people talk about using marijuana rather than having a glass of wine after work, that’s typically indica. People also reach for indica when they want to combat feelings of anxiety or insomnia.
Indica tends to suffuse the entire body with relaxation and can also dull pain.
Those are some of the main differences between the two. That will get you started but understand there are many forms of both cannabis strains and combinations of the two. Ask before buying.
