Indica vs Sativa – There are two major types of cannabis: sativa and indica.

Indica vs Sativa is a personal choice and both can we used for optimal results in different circumstances. The big difference between the two types of cannabis is that they have opposite effects once consumed. So whether you are consuming cannabis for recreational or medical reasons, you will want to use the a strain that causes the desired effects. It is also worth noting that cannabis effects individuals slightly differently based on your weight, your consumption frequency, the source of the strain, and many other factors. Here are some cannabasics to get you on the right path.

Sativa

Physically speaking, a true sativa plant will be tall, usually between 8 and 18 feet high, with thin leaves. Sativas originate from the warm climates of Mexico, Central America, and Southeast Asia and they thrive outdoors in the heat.

When you consume a sativa strain you might feel: energized, thoughtful, focused, generally awesome and uplifted, with a stimulated head high. Sativas also have a lighter, more fruity aroma. In other words, if you want to be social, clean your house, have brilliant ideas, or manage to accomplish anything at all, sativas are your go-to. Sativas are also wonderful for physical activities and Rocky Mountain adventures.

Best sativa strains available in Denver include: Sour Diesel, Green Crack, Jack Herer, Durban Poison, Lemon Haze, Super Silver Haze.

Indica

Indica plants are typically short and stout and have full-figured, wider leaves. Indicas are native to Hindu Kush range in the Himalayas, so they are much more tolerant of cold and inclement weather than sativas. To protect itself from the cold weather of the Himalayas, the plant developed the ability to product cannabinoid-dense resin to protect itself. This resin is also the reason that indicas have high levels of THC and can be very potent.

On the other hand, if you consume an indica, a.k.a “in-da-couch” you might feel sleepy, relaxed, pain relief, and it can also reduce nausea, increase appetite (munchies) and fight depression. If you are trying to watch a movie, eat a Costco-sized bag of Sun Chips and have the best slumber of your life, indica is where it is at.

Best indica strains available in Denver include: Grandaddy Purple, Bubba Kush, Northern Lights, Blue Cheese, and Purple Kush.

Hybrids

Hybrid strains occur when expert breeders select the best sativa and indica strains and crossbreed them. Hybrids are frequently bred with other hybrids and can be sativa or indica dominant. So, depending on the dominant strain, they will have similar effects to their dominant strain.

Popular hybrid strains available in Denver include: Blue Dream, OG Kush, White Widow, and AK-47.
