Sativa, Indica, & Hybrid Why the Classification Shouldn’t Matter to You

We tend to follow rumors even subconsciously and are very wary of things shrouded with urban legends — just in case if they were true to some extent. This tendency is a source of many, deeply-rooted myths and understatements.

The worst is that in the age of the internet, information is spreading at an alarming rate. Including wrong, unverified information, as well. That also applies to the cannabis industry.
One of the most common misunderstandings in this field is the sativa, indica, and hybrid distinction. To clear the situation out we decided to answer the three following crucial questions!

What Are the Most Common Myths?

What Are the Most Common Myths




The myths are about far-fetched, defined differences between these three types of cannabis:

Sativa
Energizing effects stimulate your productivity and creativity, reduces anxiety.

Indica
Relaxing effects prevent stress and tension, reduces insomnia.

Hybrid
A combination of the best properties of sativa and indica.

What Is this Classification Actually for?

What Is this Classification Actually for
This particular distinction of cannabis types only works for cultivators. The plants not only look different but also have different growing requirements and each has a different growth period.
E.g., indica takes less time than sativa flowers to grow which makes it more successful to cultivate outdoors since weather and season changes don’t have enough time to affect the plant negatively. Sativa, on the other hand, loves warm climates with long summers but it is difficult to grow indoors at the same time. Growing hybrids might differ from plant to plant.

Why Is Marijuana Awareness So Important?

Why Is Marijuana Awareness So Important
Many inexperienced and unaware marijuana users smoke weed from different sources and are wondering why last time the weed hit them so hard or why, another time, they felt nothing while their friends got high. They probably just didn’t know what strains they got and, most possibly, weren’t even interested.

Cannabis education among regular and potential users is necessary. Not everyone knows that within each species, you can find an overwhelming variety of different strains. And to make the right choice, it’s necessary to understand what makes cannabis strain unique.
The most important factor is the proportion of THC and CBD compounds in a plant.

Cannabis with higher CBD concentration is considered to have the most effective medicinal properties. The general role and effects of THC and CBD are as follows:

THC
a) Analgesic properties
b) Antidepressant activity
c) Nausea reduction
d) Sleep regulation
Eases muscle contractures and convulsions

CBD
a) Antiinflammatory properties
b) Seizures regulation
c) Antianxiety activity

Beside of THC and CBD (and over 80 different cannabinoids present in different marijuana strains), you can find another very active cannabinoid called CBG with antibacterial and neuroprotective properties.

A great part of the cannabis beneficial (but also intoxicating) properties is located in the plant’s resin. In the resin, we can also find terpenes — resin acids and hydrocarbons. The terpenes are responsible for the taste and aroma characteristic for a given strain. Among the terpenes contained the following compounds: myrcene, limonene, and β-caryophyllene. And their individual characteristics are:

Myrcene
a) Sleep regulation
b) General relaxation
c) Motor neurons relaxation

Limonene
a) Antistress and antianxiety activity
b) General relaxation
Β-caryophyllene
a) Antiinflammatory and antibacterial properties

What Does Really Matter When Choosing the Right Weed?

What Does Really Matter When Choosing the Right Weed
To get the best results and avoid undesired side effects, you need to do the following homework first:

Think through why you need weed at the moment — is it because of an illness? Painful symptoms? What are the exact symptoms? You can’t relax effectively or you just want to get high and have fun? The reason why you’re reaching for cannabis actually plays a huge role!

Draw conclusions from self-observation — what is your tolerance for THC? Do you get high easily or have tendencies to hallucinate? Or you’ve never smoked and don’t know how your organism will react? Consult all the information about yourself with an experienced cannabis vendor and ask for strains low in THC.

Don’t ignore your preferences — looking for strains that will be best for you, follow your taste and olfactory preferences, as well. Getting high may easily heighten your senses. If your sense of smell is particularly sharp naturally, you definitely don’t want to risk smoking marijuana of intense, skunky smell and taste — unless that’s something you actually like. Always inform the dispensary vendor of your likes and, especially, dislikes!

As you can see, you can’t get one ultimate answer in which marijuana species is the best. There are so many various strains and marijuana growers are still creating brand new kinds! Exact effects will also differ from user to user.

Before going to a cannabis dispensary, get to know yourself, your body and your preferences. Although don’t be afraid to experiment with different strains. Just ask an experienced cannabis vendor for detailed descriptions of the strains and don’t forget to inform them of your health condition — this way, they’ll be able to offer you an effective and harmless marijuana experience!
