When purchasing cannabis at a shop, you may notice strains are broken up into three distinct groups: indica, sativa, and hybrid. Indica strains are known for being physically sedating, perfect for relaxing with a movie or as a nightcap before bed. Sativas typically provide more invigorating, uplifting cerebral effects that pair well with physical activity, social gatherings, and creative projects. Hybrids tend to fall somewhere in between the indica-sativa spectrum, depending on the traits they inherit from their parent strains.
Because of these perceived differences, medical patients using cannabis to treat symptoms and conditions may also consider a strain’s classification. Checkout the video and make sure you have a good idea of what you want/need.
