SCIENCE OF STRAINS
Believe it or not there is an exact science to medical cannabis. It’s called “strains” and whether you’re a connoisseur or are new to the world of cannabis you will begin to learn more about which strains work best for your condition(s) and how they make you feel. These strains break into three categories; Indica, Sativa and Hybrid.
INDICA CANNABIS STRAINS
Indica cannabis strains are often described as relaxed and social. The stronger varieties will numb your body and most likely put you to sleep. Indica plants are short, usually under six feet and have fat deep green leaves. Indicas originate from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and surrounding areas. A great choice for stress relief and relaxation.
SATIVA CANNABIS STRAINS
Sativa cannabis strains are often described as uplifting and energizing. They are great for daytime use and are a favorite among patients because of their pain relief properties. Sativa plants can grow upwards of 25 feet tall but most stay under 12 feet. They typically have light green leaves that are long and thin. A great choice for chronic pain and getting through the day.
HYBRID CANNABIS STRAINS
Hybrid cannabis strains provide the best of both strains. They are bred by expert breeders who select the top Sativa and Indica strains to combine into super strains that bring the best qualities from both parent plants. Hybrids can be Sativa or Indica dominant leaving you with the effects to match. Great for the connoisseur who likes to try newer strains.
