When viewing cannabis varieties or purchasing cannabis in a store, you may notice that the strains are usually divided into two separate groups: indica and sativa. It is believed that Indica strains have a sedative effect and are ideal for relaxing in the movies or as a night drink.
Sativa strains provide vigor, uplifting, well combined with physical activity and creative projects.
However, these categories are not as such. There is not enough evidence that indica and sativa exhibit different structure of chemical profiles that can cause a sedative effect, and another - to raise the mood.
It was the words “indica” and “sativa” that turned it into the mother tongue of cannabis consumers around the world. Today, “sativa” refers to the high, narrow-leaved varieties of cannabis, which are believed to have a stimulating effect. "Indica" came to describe the thick broadleaf plants, which are believed to have a calming effect.
Today, scientists say that the difference between Indica and Sativa is not so important. First of all, it is important to understand which standardized cannabis composition causes which effects, when it is delivered, in which models, in which specific dosages.
This means that not all sativa will charge you with energy, and not all indicas will calm you down. Simply note that there are no strict rules and no definitive chemical data that supports the ideal prediction model.
