Sativa vs. Indica

Sativa vs. Indica

 If you are a beginner to using marijuana then its pretty hard to tell the differences between cannabis strains. In the end we all want to smoke the most potent marijuana we can find. Being able to tell the difference between sativa and indica will greatly help you with this.

 Cannabis Sativa plants are normally tall with narrow leaves. They originated from countries near the equator like south America and south east Asia. Sativa strains are what most people consider as a “daytime smoke”. Oftentimes individuals find themselves feeling very active and talkative after consuming a sativa product. Sativa's can also be appetite suppressant. Potent sativa's tend to get your mind racing with new ideas. They are good for anyone who plans to be active during the day or if they are looking to be creative. Sativa's sometime have a tendency to bring out anxiety and paranoia, 

 Cannabis Indica plants are short, densely branched and have broad leaves. They originated from countries in the middle east like Afghanistan and Turkey. Indica plants tend to have a higher THC content than Sativa plants. The Indica high is often referred to as a "body high". It helps with chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia and lack of appetite. Indica strains are a nice way to end the day because they are very relaxing and give people more of a body high. Sometimes a potent indica strain will leave you on the couch all day, making you a bit lazy and very comfortable.

 When it comes to my personal opinion, indica strains and sativa strains have their time and place. I think hybrid strains are the best type of cannabis because you get the best of both worlds: sativa and indica all in one. Hybrids are not limiting to one effect, you get the best of both worlds. My favourite hybrid strains are: Pine-Tar Kush, Kaviar Bubba Kush and Diamond Bubba. All of which you can purchase discreetly through VanCity Organics.

 With all the strains to chose from here in Canada it really is hard to pick just one kind. But luckily the cannabis industry is on the rise making strain education more available. Picking the right strain has never been easier. If your having any trouble finding the right strain for you or you would like some recommendations. Please feel free to contact me at
