What’s the difference between Indica and Sativa?

With legalization, there are so many different online dispensaries popping up. Just one google search of “Canadian weed” and you get an endless amount of different sites. What’s worse is that these different sites have hundreds of different products, too. For many new online shoppers, this can be overwhelming and sorting out what to buy starts to become more of a chore, rather than something that should be exciting! Our article today is dedicated to help simplifying some of the flower types to give you a better idea of what you’re looking for.

What is the difference between indica, sativa, and hybrid? 

Most, if not all, mail order marijuana sites will have their cannabis types split into these three categories. Each of these categories have their own characteristics and while some may be catered to what you’re looking for, the other one would most likely be the opposite!

Sativa strains

These strains are a great day-time strain as they don’t tend to make users sleepy or lethargic. Artists tend to prefer these strains as they’re more likely to feel energetic and creative. Sativa strains are meant for those who are intending to be productive during their high or even just more social!

Indica strains 

These strains are where the couch-locked phrase is derived from. Indica strains are much more common to find than sativa strains. The characteristics of these strains tend to make you more sleepy and relaxed – they’re a great strain to smoke when you’re winding down after a long day of work and tend to be smoked at nighttime because of this.

Hybrid strains

These strains are a mix of the two mentioned above. Generally, it’s not common to find a strain that’s a perfectly balanced hybrid as hybrids tend to have a dominant side and there’s no way of telling what effects you’ll feel until you smoke it!

With that being said, it really comes down to your how your biology reacts with the psychoactive ingredients from each type of strain. While one indica strain may work for you, another indica strain may feel different.
