Weed strains Indica and Sativa are the two main types of marijuana plants. In general, Sativa is energizing, and India is relaxing. Indica and Sativa plants are also crossbred to create hybrids. However, every strain is unique and affects individuals differently.
Sativa weed strains are commonly recommended for daytime use. Also, they tend to be uplifting and cause more of a cerebral or head-high.
Indica (Cannabis indica) strains are usually recommended for relieving pain and insomnia. Often considered “bedtime strains,” Indicas typically have a calming effect on both the body and the mind.
Hybrid Weed strains contain a mix of qualities from their parent plants that offer a middle ground. Also, some hybrid strains combine the mental alertness of a Sativa with the pain-relieving effects of India.
Sativas Weed strains are known for their “head high,” an invigorating effect that can help reduce anxiety or stress and increase creativity and focus. Also, Indicas are typically associated with full-body effects, such as increasing deep relaxation and reducing insomnia.
