There are two different strains of weed which are Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa. Cannabis is a natural herb that has been around for a long time but is best known for its medicinal value. The benefits are immense and the two strains have actually helped a ton of people feel better across the world. The thing is, it is very hard to tell the difference. A lot of the users usually cannot tell the difference. Here’ some differences between indica and sativa.
One way to tell the difference is to be on the look-out for the reaction to your body. Sativa usually leaves a burst of energy once consumed while Indica leaves a calm and relaxed feel. How long the effects last is based on your metabolism but the reactions are not based on your metabolism. The two different effects that the two strains have on their consumers is so varied, that one can easily tell the difference based in this alone.
Among the difference between sativa and Indica is that they all have different uses, however, each is effective in its own way. Sativa has been recognized to deal with fatigue in a more powerful way compared to indica. Compared to sativa, Indica has proven to help people who have sleeping problems. Its effects towards insomnia is impressive.
It is also essential to note that sativa has a broader production compared to Indica. Indica produces less than sativa. The production of each plant is determined by the size of the plan. Sativa will yield more as a result of having a large plant. Given that Indica has a small plant, this affects the way an individual harvests meaning that he or she shall be in a position to harvest less.The effects they have when used and their production, should guide you on which plant that is better than the other.
One of the differences between the two varieties of weed is the fact that they originate from different countries. Indica as its name suggests, originates from the Indian subcontinent which includes India and Nepal. Sativa comes from areas around the equator, countries like Mexico and Thailand. Another obvious difference is in the appearance of the plants. The indica leaves are broader than sativa and are therefore denser. Sativa leaves tend to be smaller and narrow as compared to indica leaves.
Indica varieties when mature don’t grow tall but because of the size of its leaves, it is more dense and its buds grow in clusters make it look very full. Sativa varieties grow significantly tall compared to indica and are therefore grown outdoors. Indica varieties have a stronger odor than sativa. Indica varieties take a shorter time to flower and therefore the buds come earlier meaning they are harvested earlier too.
