Indica vs. Sativa
The Sativa strains are mostly known for their uplifting and energetic effects making them extremely popular for daytime medicating. Sativas, being more of a stimulant, are effective for appetite stimulation, relieving depression, migraines, chronic pain and nausea. Sativas have a higher level of CBD than Indicas, which results in a psychoactive and energetic mind high giving a feeling of well-being and optimism.
The Indica strains are known for their relaxing effects making them the choice for late evening medicating. Indicas have a sedative effect and are used for the treatment of anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, muscle spasms and tremors. Indicas have a higher level of cannabinoids than sativas which results in a more sedated body high giving a feeling of sleepiness and heaviness making them great for winding down at night.
