Differences between Indica and Sativa cannabis plants (Indica Vs Sativa)

Medicinal cannabis can be used to treat a wide variety of common conditions. Generally, medicinal cannabis results in the user having a sense of greater physical and mental relaxation, pain reduction, increased appetite, and better sleep. More so, there are two main types of medicinal cannabis plants, and each offers a different set of benefits. Knowing the differences between the two categories is very important as it is gonna help you in finding the right strain for each patient and for recreational reasons as well.

The two well known types of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa. Each strain has it’s own range of consequences on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medicinal benefits. Indica strains generally provide a sense of deep body relaxation. Sativa strains tend to provide a more energizing experience.

 

Cannabis Indica

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

The major qualities of Indica medicinal strains include:

  • increased mental relaxation
  • muscle relaxation
  • decreases nausea
  • decreases acute pain
  • increases appetite
  • increases dopamine
  • for night time use

 

Cannabis Sativa

           Cannabis Sativa plants are direct opposites of the Indica strains and they grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa plants are also generally a lighter shade of greens than their counterpart. Sativa strains takes time to grow, mature, and require more light. Medicine produced from cannabis Sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC levels.

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

5 Best Strongest Marijuana Strains To Try Before You Quit Smoking.

1 – Godfather OG (The World’s Strongest Marijuana Strain?)

 

According to High Times, Godfather OG is the most potent marijuana strain on the planet. This indica dominant hybrid is reported to have a THC content of over 34%! Since it is an activated THC value, there is a good chance that the figure is conservative.

Godfather OG is cultivated by California Herbal Remedies  and is believed to be a cross of Cherry Pie, OG Kush, and Granddaddy Purps. With this information in hand, it is no surprise that Godfather OG is often referred to as the ‘Don of all Kush’ strains. Even a typical strain should have a THC of over 25%.Of course, strength means nothing without quality — and Godfather OG has absolutely no shortage of quality.

This strain has won the High Times Cannabis Cup for best indica strain in the past, and when you smoke the bud, it will hit you with an incredible cerebral high that soon results in a whole-body euphoria. Users tend to feel calm and happy, with the euphoric effects oozing over both mind and body. Godfather OG provides you with a feeling of total relaxation, and could ever render you immobile or couch-locked for the afternoon, such is its potency.

2 – Chemdawg (The Pungent Marijuana Strain)

 

Chemdawg previously held the record for highest THC content when it won the coveted Cannabis Cup title with a THC level of 32.13%. Cultivated by Next Harvest in Denver CO, it is one of the most mysterious marijuana strains. People know little about its genetics or history. However, rumor has it that Chemdawg is a cross of a Thai and Nepalese sativa.

Whatever its ancestral lineage, it should go without saying that Chemdawg is not for the newbie. It is an indica dominant hybrid (55%) renowned for its pungent scent. This aroma carries more than a hint of diesel. In fact, this strain is used to create Sour Diesel — another one of the world’s most popular (and potent) marijuana strains.

When you smoke Chemdawg, it will provide you with a wonderful cerebral high that is incredibly enjoyable —  that is, once you know how to handle it!

The nugs have a powerful relaxing effect that is ideal for calming down a mind that tends to race, and furthermore, if you are stressed at work and need something to help you chill out, research shows that strains like Chemdawg are perfect because of their uplifting effects.

Moreover, it is also a strain conducive to creativity and has been a preferred favorite among artistic types for many, many years in California and the West Coast in general. Want to learn more about the Chemdawg Strain? Check out this comprehensive Chemdawg review.

3 – Irish Cream (This Marijuana Strain is the Real McCoy)

This is yet another case of “selectively breeding” to yield an exceptionally powerful marijuana strain. Mighty Irish Seeds developed Irish Cream. It is an indica and a crossbreed of Real McCoy and Cookies and Cream. The result is a strain that the company claims clocks in with an average THC content over 27%.

If you smoke this strain with the belief that it will taste like Bailey’s, though, you’re in for a disappointment as it offers classic, dank weed flavors instead. You will find that this bud offers the taste of fresh herbs and pine, and while it doesn’t taste quite like the Sweet Cream strain, it is nonetheless a pleasant experience.

Irish Cream is an extremely potent strain which means it could help with the relief of anxiety, depression, stress, and even chronic pain. The initial high is mostly cerebral, but soon you’ll feel happy, relaxed, and sociable all at once. Eventually, your body starts to feel the effects and you’ll begin to feel sedated and ready to hit the sack for a deep, naturally healthy night’s sleep. This is what we like to call a “carefree” strain, due to the fact that it is ideal for evening and night time use.

4 – White Tahoe Cookies (This Marijuana Strain is the New Kid on the Block)

 

This exciting new strain was initially grown by Kush for Breakfast and is a cross of The White, Girl Scout Cookies, and Tahoe OG, so the name of the hybrid became obvious to the creator. White Tahoe Cookies has become extremely popular on the West Coast, according to its breeders, and its THC content clocks in at over 27% — making it one of the world’s strongest as a whole.

This is an indica-dominant strain (roughly 70%) and is one of the most aesthetically-pleasing marijuana strains around. Archive Seed Bank is the distributor of White Tahoe Cookies. It is certainly worth trying if only so you can enjoy the sweet, flavorful notes with obvious OG undertones.

In terms of effects, it may shock you how quickly White Tahoe Cookies starts to hit the senses. Within minutes, you should feel euphoric, and your mind should become filled with great ideas because this strain is fantastic for creativity.

In fact, all it needs is a single toke to understand that you’re dealing with a potent monster of a strain.

Ultimately, you will feel a relaxing body buzz that turns into a feeling of sedation. The high sometimes lasts for hours. For this reason, make sure you’re safely wrapped up in bed. (And of course, this particular effect makes it one of our absolute favorites for insomnia and other sleep issues!)

5 – Strawberry Banana (The Marijuana Strain That Tastes Like Dessert)

 

This indica dominant hybrid (70%) is a cross of Crocket  Banana Kush and Strawberry Bubblegum, and was developed by those crazy creative geniuses at Serious Seeds. It is a mainstay on the High Times ‘Strongest Strains on Earth’ list, selected three years in a row. On at least one phenotype of the strain (a specimen grown by Greenwolf LA & Green Country Rebellion), average THC levels of 31.62% were detected by the growers.

Best Strains For PTSD and Anxiety 2019

Marijuana strains should be matched to the patient’s symptoms and the experience they want to get from using cannabis. Some of the most common symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Recurrent episodes in which the person re-lives the traumatic experience
  • Nightmares
  • Insomnia and other sleep problems
  • Problems with concentration
  • Irritability and anger
  • Blackouts
  • Extreme and debilitating phobia or fear related to certain places, people and experiences.

When it comes to marijuana strains, there’s not going to be a single strain that works for PTSD, regardless of the individual. Instead, we can base recommendations on the knowledge of which strains are best for anxiety, and then work with you to find the right combination. Here are several examples of strains that have been successful in reducing PTSD symptoms:

  • Girl Scout Cookies
  • AC/DC
  • Northern Lights
  • Granddaddy Purple
  • Charlotte’s Web
  • Cannatonic

There are many more. Our experienced physicians will help you choose a strain or multiple strains based on THC and CBD concentration.

THC vs. CBD When it Comes to Treating Anxiety Disorders

THC is the component in marijuana that causes a euphoric high. Some people seeking medical marijuana – particularly individuals who want to feel clearheaded and alert as possible – may want the benefits of marijuana without the high. This is possible with strains containing low levels of THC.

Strains that are high in CBD and low in THC often work well for people suffering from anxiety and PTSD. THC, on the other hand, sometimes increases feelings of anxiety and paranoia – at least for some people. CBD can have a calming effect. But some people want the sense of contentment and euphoria that accompanies THC. The takeaway is to try different strains to find what works best for you.

In consultation with one of our experienced physicians, you’ll receive custom recommendations for what to ask for at the dispensary. Our physicians can help you decide which strains to try based on your expectations, concerns and symptoms. Sometimes a good approach is to start with a high CBD/low THC strain and then go from there, seeing how you feel and deciding whether you want to incorporate higher levels of THC.

Top 3 Best Hybrid Strains To Try Before You Stop Smoking…

(1)   BLUE DREAM..

 

A potent cross between the ever popular classic strains Blueberry and Haze, Blue Dream  is a slightly sativa-dominant strain shrouded in mystery. It is not just dreamy because of its stellar flavor and buzzy cerebral high, but because its history has essentially been wiped from the books with many believing its origins must be a dream. It first made a name for itself in the medical community, though no one knew who made it or where it came from outside of most speculating it was birthed in Santa Cruz, CA. Eventually, the strain caught the attention of legendary breeder DJ Short who has worked hard to give us the version we have today.

With a relatively high THC range that averages at a low of 17% and a high of 24%, this dreamy bud has more than just good looks and flavor to bring to the table. The CBD and CBN levels reach 2% and 1% respectively, making this a stellar strain for treating a myriad of ailments. The delicious flavors of blueberry and sugar are long lasting and stay in the air and on your tongue long after the smoke has gone. The nugs are long and bushy, with deep blue hues, amber and blue hairs, and an abundance of milky white trichomes.

Blue Dream’s high is all the best parts of its parentage wrapped neatly into a flavor-packed, beautifully balanced package. It begins with a cerebral rush, bringing with it motivation and heightened focus, so enjoy this through any jam-packed schedule. As the high builds you fall into an ultra-relaxed state, leaving you feeling hazy and totally calm. This numbing sensation will find you pain-free and ready for any task.

Continuing with the plethora of effects, users who suffer from anxiety disorders are not recommended to use this strain as it has a tendency to get ahead of you quickly and could definitely agitate pre-existing conditions. However, because it is super potent it does have extremely beneficial elements for patients who suffer from chronic fatigue, depression, and lack of appetite. As it is a stimulant at its core, it will undoubtedly lift your mood and get the body moving. It is also recommended for mild cases of muscle spasms and pains caused by injury or illness.

 

 

(2)   WHITE WIDOW

 

t is an old hybrid by marijuana standards, but few modern-era strains can match White Widow. It was one of the first imports from Europe to make it big in the United States when it first traveled overseas from the Netherlands in the 1990s. It is a cross of South American sativa and a South Indian indica, with a THC content ranging from 18% to 25%.

White Widow is known for producing a smooth and reliable high. It manages to be uplifting and relaxing at the same time; perfect if you are a creative individual seeking inspiration. It is an excellent ‘social’ strain, but when it takes hold, it provides a deep body relaxation that could cause you to flop on a couch and not get up!

This strain looks like it has been dipped in sugar, such is the number of trichomes it possesses. It has a pungent aroma with spicy and earthy hints. As well as giving a strong earthy taste, White Widow provides you with hints of wood and pine, but the slight taste of sugar that lingers is what really gets you.

It is used to treat an array of medical conditions such as PTSD, depression, and anxiety. While you can grow White Widow indoors or outside, it is best to cultivate it inside. When grown outdoors, it is ready for harvest near the end of October and offers a yield of up to 21 ounces per plant. Indoors, its flowering time is 8-9 weeks, with around 18 ounces of bud per square meter.

 

 

(3)   GELATO

 

     Gelato is a hybrid crossed from taste-engineered parents Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and fruity indica Sunset Sherbert. With a balanced, mellow high and a universally appealing flavor profile, this is a great strain for social use. San Francisco creators Cookie Farm Genetics have released multiple numbered phenotypes of Gelato – phenotype #33 has picked up the nickname Larry Bird in reference to the legendary player’s jersey number. This strain has an indica-leaning high and carries a THC composition that ranges from 20% to 25%.

     Gelato’s buds tend to be small but they have the thick and dense structure characteristic of many indica varieties. This is a strain with immediate visual appeal: bright orange pistils stand out against forest green leaves that are accented by shades of deep purple. The purple hues come about when high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by cold weather in the vegetative stage. Although the buds themselves are sticky, short stalks on the trichomes mean that this strain has a less frosty appearance than many others. Cured properly, flowers of Gelato have a predominant smell of pungent citrus, compliments of fruity parent strain Sunset Sherbert. Notes of yeast and dough can be detected as well. Grinding up or breaking apart the flowers gives off a more herbal, earthy profile. Though it’s thick and lung-expanding, the smoke from Gelato is smooth and leaves behind a soft and creamy sensation — perhaps going some way towards explaining its name. This is one pungent smoke, and those trying to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.

Best Vape Pens

Do you even vape? Now you do. All the cool kids are doing it—and it doesn’t rip up your throat with every hit—so you might as well get on board.

Before you do, keep this in mind: Vapes get cannabis bud hot enough to release those good compounds that get you sailing, but not so hot the cannabis burns up into smoke. Going the smoke-free route with a vaporizer is generally healthier for your body than smoking cannabis, because smoke itself is bad for your lungs. While smoking marijuana isn’t conclusively linked to lung cancer like smoking tobacco is, it’s still irritating. If you vape, you’ll avoid putting smoke into your body at all. The vapor you do ingest has “virtually no” smoke toxins, according to one study.

Besides the relative respiratory ease, vaping marijuana is subtle—unless you make a spectacle of yourself, Leonardo DiCaprio-style—and tastier. Many people say the effect is more pleasing. A recent study also found the high was much more powerful than that from smoking marijuana for people who don’t regularly partake.

 

 

 

 

 

But really, the jury’s still out on whether or not there are significant risks associated with vaping marijuana. It’s hard for scientists to put vaping to the test when the federal government still considers marijuana a highly dangerous drug and the possession of it a criminal offense. Right now, 33 states have medical marijuana laws on the books, and 10 states plus Washington, D.C., have gone right ahead and legalized the stuff for recreational use. Senators in the capitol are tacking their names onto a bill that would limit federal intervention in states with progressive weed laws. Another bill takes an even stronger stance, calling for the full legalization of marijuana throughout the country as well as righting many of the wrongs wrought by the War on Drugs in marginalized communities. The country is slowly, surely catching up to the people.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. You just want to vape. So here are the 10 best—and best-looking—weed vaporizers you can buy right now. Pair one with quality flower and vape away

For a smoker first making the switch to vaping, or for a vaper who wants to keep things as simple as possible, finding the best vape pen brands on the market is a big priority. Offering vast improvements in performance in comparison to cigalike devices and being considerably more compact and simple than the vape mods many long-term vapers gravitate towards, vape pens are the perfect middle-ground for the vaper who wants solid performance without a lot of unnecessary bells and whistles.

Traditionally, vaporizer pens were basically eGo-style devices, with 650 to 1000 mAh batteries and fairly small, high-ohm coil clearomizers, but the best vape pens for 2018 extend beyond these traditional boundaries, with many devices sporting bigger – almost mod-like – batteries and supporting sub-ohm resistances. This might blur the boundaries between vape pens and mods, but it’s added some excellent performers to the class.

So here’s our list of the best vaporizer pens for e-liquid currently on the market, ranging from the more basic, traditional styles through to the modern, sub-ohm capable beasts that push the category to breaking point.
