Indica vs. Sativa:  What is the difference?


Medical cannabis comes in two basic types: Indica and Sativa. Each type has its own distinct set of characteristics. Medical cannabis types are available from pure sativa strains to pure indica strains, and include every combination in between. 

* Cannabis Sativa is a tall, slower growing and maturing plant that typically has long thin leaves which may vary in color from light to darker greens. Sativa flowers are long and thin and turn red as they mature in a warm environments, and can turn slightly purple in cooler ones. They generally smell sweet and fruity and smoke quite mildly. It is the plants best source of very strong fiber for rope, clothing and a multitude of other products. The medicating effect of sativas are often characterized as uplifting and energetic and mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and well-being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. A good choice for daytime medication. 

* Cannabis Indica is a short to moderate height bushy plant. Generally its leaves are short, broad fingers of dark green, and are sometimes tinged with purple. As they near maturity, the flowers may become significantly more purple. It is a strong smelling plant with a “stinky” or “skunky” smell. The smoke of indicas are typically thick and more prone to cause coughing when inhaled. The medicating effect is most often described as a whole body buzz. Indicas are great for relaxation, stress relief, and for an overall sense of calm and serenity and are very effective for overall body pain relief, and often used in the treatment of insomnia. They are the evening choice of many patients as an all-night sleep aid.
