The dispensary categorizes the odd strains of cannabis as indicas, sativas or hybrids. The general rule is that indicas are more of a body-high. They provide relaxing, mellowing and soothing effects and are advocated for eveningtime use! Some people buddy “couch-lock” with indicas. Indica strains tend to offer higher percentages of CBD however separate from necessarily sacrificing THC levels. Sativas are considered to offer a cerebral high. They create energizing, inspiring effects and are advocated more for morningtime consumption, and most sativa strains provide higher THC potency and lower CBD levelsâ€¦ Hybrids can be just about anything. There are more and more hybrid strains showing up on the shelves of the dispensary all the timeâ€¦ Growers are cross-breeding plants to give sky-high THC levels or to target particular therapeutic effects. Hybrids can be sativa-dominant or indica-dominant and provide any combination of great to energizing sensations. After some long discussions about the many categories with a budtender at the dispensary, I realized I should be paying more attention to cannabinoids and terpenes. The terms sativa and indica entirely refer to the origin of the cannabis plant. It has more to do with the grow climate, shape of the leaves and height of the plant than the effects it delivers, then fortunately, cannabis products are entirely well labeled and the staff at the dispensary is super expertiseable. I’ve now been exploring THC percentages, CBD percentages, flavonoids and a variety of consumption methods. While smoking flower or vaping provides almost immediate onset of effects, edibles can take fourths to fully set in yet offer greater intensity of effects! Concentrates are properly more potent and topicals cause no high at all.
