What is the difference between Indica, Sativa and Hybrid Marijuana?
Everywhere you look these days you see more and more stories about marijuana. For many new users there are lots of businesses which will allow you to buy marijuana online and offering discounts on marijuana, but how do you what sort to buy? Before you buy marijuana online, let’s check out what the difference between the different strains of marijuana are and which type of marijuana is better suited to you.
There are three main types or strains of marijuana. The three strains are Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid. Hybrids are a mixture of the best attributes of both Indica and Sativa. Each has its own particular character traits and while one strain may be suited to you, another will not. Understanding which strains affect you and which ones don’t can involve quite a lot of trial and error. No two people are the same, and even strains with the same name can vary quite a lot depending on where you buy marijuana online.
Determining whether you go with either an Indica, Sativa or Hybrid strain of marijuana will depend a lot on what you’re looking to get out of it. The biggest difference between a Sativa strain and Indica strain is once you consume them the results will be the opposite. It doesn’t matter if you’re using marijuana for recreational or medicinal purposes, choosing a strain which will give you your desired results is the number one priority – each strain will have different benefits for you.
Here is some basic information on each of the marijuana strains to help you make a more educated decision before you buy marijuana online:
- Sativa Cannabis – Sativa plants are characteristically much taller cannabis plants than Hybrid and Indica plants. This can be one of the biggest drawbacks for growers who are looking to cultivate plants indoors utilizing hydroponic setups. Sativa plants originate in warmer climates like Central America, Southeast Asia, and Mexico.
When you have a Sativa strain of cannabis, you’re more likely to feel energized and creative. Many artists enjoy smoking Sativa strains of marijuana to help with their creativity and productivity. Sativa strains of cannabis are a great way to smoke and are social while not ending up ‘couch locked’ and relaxing in front of the TV. Some popular Sativa strains are Durban Poison, Lemon Haze, Sour Diesel, Green Crack and Super Silver Haze.
- Indica Cannabis – Indica plants are much shorter and broader than Sativa plants which makes them ideal for growing indoors. It’s also why Indica strains of cannabis are much more common. Indica plants originated in the Hindu Kush and are much better suited to colder climates.
When you smoke or consume Indica strains of cannabis, you’re going to experience many of the typical symptoms associated with the stereotypical ‘stoner’ or marijuana user. You’ll feel sleepy, relaxed and more likely to sit back and watch TV with a bag of chips compared to Sativa strains which often leave you feeling more energetic.
Some of the more popular Indica strains which you can buy online are Bubba Kush, Northern Lights, Grandaddy Purple, and Purple Kush.
- Hybrid Cannabis – Hybrid cannabis come about through growers taking the best parts of a Sativa and Indica and mixing the two strains together. While they may contain parts of both a Sativa or Indica, Hybrid strains are usually dominant in one strain or the other. The effects you experience when you consume Hybrid strains of marijuana will differ, depending on which strain is more dominant.
Some of the famous strains of marijuana you can buy online are OG Kush, AK-47, White Widow, and Blue Dream.
