How do you know the difference between Indica and Sativa strains? Anyone who has ever smoked weed, eaten an edible or used a vaporizer knows that there are two strains of weed: Indica and Sativa. But what really is the difference between the two and how to you tell them apart?
The Plant Itself
There are a few different indicators when looking at a marijuana plant to tell whether it is a Sativa or Indica strain. Sativa cannabis plants are light green in color, grow tall and lean and have long and narrow fan-like leaves. On the other hand, Indica cannabis plants have dark green leaves, are shorter and denser, and their leaves are short with wide fan-like leaves.
The Effects Between the Two
It’s pretty well known that Sativa strains give you a more uplifting and energetic feeling and are best used for day-time activities while as Indica strains make you feel more relaxed and tired and are best for nighttime use. Indica strains deliver more of a body-high whereas Sativa strains deliver more of a head-high. Sativa strains are often associated with being alert, having more creativity, having increased energy as well as being uplifting and euphoric. Indica strains are more often than not used to help stimulate appetite, help you; your mind and your body relax, can be a beneficial sleeping aid and act as a pain reliever in most instances.
In addition to Indica and Sativa strains there are also Hybrid strains which can either be an Indica dominant Hybrid or a Sativa dominant Hybrid. A strain that is considered Indica dominant is crossed with a Sativa strain resulting in a “hybrid” plant. The Indica strain is dominant over the Sativa strain so you will feel more of the effects from the Indica strain rather than the Sativa, and vice versa for Sativa dominant hybrids.
