Indica vs. Sativa

CANNABIS INDICA

Typically, cannabis Indica plants are short, bushy plants with wide leaves. Indica plants typically grow faster and have a higher yield than the sativa variety. Medicine produced from cannabis Indica plants have higher CBD and lower THC counts.

 

The major qualities of Indica medicinal strains include:

  • increased mental relaxation

  • muscle relaxation

  • decreases nausea

  • decreases acute pain

  • increases appetite

  • increases dopamine (a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers)

  • for night time use

Cannabis Sativa plants are opposite of the Indica strains and grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa plants are also generally a lighter shade of green than their counterpart, the Indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. Medicine produced from cannabis Sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC counts.

 

The major qualities of Sativa medicinal strains include:

  • anti-anxiety

  • anti-depressant

  • treats chronic pain

  • increases focus and creativity

  • increases serotonin (a neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of learning, mood, sleep, anxiety and appetite)

  • for day time use
