Sativa or Indica: Which is Better?

Jordan Webber

Published

Marijuana laws in Canada have come quite a long way. The substance is no longer criminalized so harshly, as used to be the case. While there are still laws regarding impaired driving and selling pot to minors, the rest of the situation is fairly lax. Households can grow up to four plants, and there are plenty of dispensaries where marijuana can be purchased. This has led to quite a few more people developing a taste for marijuana, so to speak, and thus people want to know what sort of bud they should buy.

Two of the most popular types are Sativa and Indica, both of which are huge hits and very much in demand at your local dispensary. Though, which one should you get? These high-end strains of marijuana aren’t exactly cheap, so it’s not as if most people are in a position to buy them both to try. Just imagine you wanted to try caviar, to see which brand you liked the best. Most people can’t afford to just buy an expensive can of Beluga and Sturgeon to see which is better. It would cost a small fortune. The same here, though just not quite as pricy. But the principle remains. It’s better to know which is better for you beforehand.

So, let’s explain a little bit about these separate strains so that you can make the best-informed decision possible and spend your money wisely.

Comparing Sativa and Indica Varieties

Sativa and Indica are two separate species of cannabis, called “strains” colloquially. As different species of plant, of the same family, they do have different appearances. Though what we’re focused on here is how these plants affect the body when consumed, not how they look when growing.

What Sativa Does

Sativa strains provide a more uplifting sort of feeling, what a lot of people would call a “head high.” This is the sort of high people are looking for if their busy, on-the-go lifestyles could use a boost. This particular strain is ideal for shaking away things like those social butterflies in settings with other people. It’s the sort of effect many people rely on if they’re trying to warm up and come out of their shell and just let loose.

This strain’s effects are great if you’re active. It doesn’t lag the body down, nor does it have that “I need munchies” sort of brain-fog crash. It’s a crisp, clean, exhilarating high that’s ideal for people who are going to the gym or going out to a party, etc. Many artists who are actively trying to create also swear by the effects of Sativa to really put them in a better place mentally where they can just get to work and focus.

What Indica Does

Another very popular strain available at your local dispensary, Indica is said in many ways to be Sativa’s polar opposite. This gives people a much more sedated, relaxed, heavier high often referred to as a “body high”. It’s the sort of feeling that makes the body feel a bit heavier, and a bit more sluggish. Of course, if this is the experience people have when they want to go dancing, it’s no good. However, for people dealing with stress who need to just sit down and chill for a while, get away from their thoughts and just enjoy some downtime, it’s something they consider a miracle drug.

Where Indica really excels is in people who have trouble sleeping. Not only insomniacs but also busy people who spend their days bombarded with bright and colorful and busy technology and stuff, who need to just unplug and reset so that they can rest. Indica is the type of bud that would make people put their heads down before they got used to it. Plenty of people prefer this sort of high; it’s what they need.

The Verdict

The fact of the matter is that we’re in no position at all to tell you which type is better. It depends on what you want. Do you want a high that makes you feel free and loose and ready to mingle around with people on a social level? Do you want to feel active and energetic? This is when Sativa is the right choice. Contrarily, if you need to relax, unplug and get away from it all, or if you just need a good night’s sleep, Indica is your go-to choice.

So keep those points in mind and choose the bud that’s right for your needs.

CBD and Coffee

CBD Coffee

It is no surprise that we have coffee and anxiety in a country where more than 83% of its population drink coffee. What if the anxiety could be reduced? Cannabidiol (CBD) coffee might be just what you need to relax your nerves while still keeping you buzzed.

CBD is a chemical compound that has piqued the interest of those seeking some of the beneficial effects of THC, the psychoactive component, without the psychoactive side effects. In other words, it may help foster a sense of calmness and relaxation when refined into oil or processed into an edible, but it won’t get you stoned.

Although CBD may not make you feel euphoric or drugged, many people report a general sense of wellness after taking it, and some people use it for pain relief. It’s also often prescribed for anxious people, and it’s been shown to help with epilepsy in some instances. In this article, we’ve listed topics where you’ll discover the effects of CBD and coffee when mixed in a cup.

What Is CBD Coffee?

CBD Coffee

There are various ways to bring CBD into your body, and coffee is one way to rise in popularity. It is not surprising, particularly as coffee bars and specialty coffee shops are always looking for new and interesting flavors.

Coffee owners are still looking for new ways of attracting customers. Many coffees are submerged and sweetened with fructose syrup in calorie-rich creamers. It’s time for coffee, which has potential advantages such as CBD.

Some coffee beans are infused with CBD by CBD firms. You grind and pack the coffee beans for sale. In this way, you can make baristas in a coffee shop or make a cup in your home privacy. However, CBD coffee is more common by incorporating CBD tinctures. CBD coffee is just as it sounds like: CBD-infused coffee, without intoxication, harnesses the beneficial effects of cannabis. CBD is perfectly legal to sell and consume CBD coffee, as opposed to weed.

Benefits of CBD Coffee (h3)

There are several advantages to making coffee and adding CBD to it. First of all, because caffeine speeds up the secretion and dopamine production, it plays a key role in the motives for reward-motivated actions to add CBD to your coffee.

Serotonin has the effect of a moderate antidepressant. The signs of depression can not be alleviated, but non-patients can take a more rosy view as they all want to go back to sleep.

Caffeine also makes the muscles stronger than themselves. It helps you to feel solid, secure, and ready for the morning journey. These are just a few of what a cup of CBD Coffee can offer to your system.

How CBD Coffee Works on Your Body

Before brewing a CBD coffee, it’s best to understand if it is good for you. Caffeine joins the body as we drink coffee. It is structurally similar to adenosine which is a substance that binds to adenosine receptors. This association triggers a chemical reaction in the receptors of adenosine and nerves. As a result, we get exhausted.

Caffeine can bind to adenosine receptors because it is similar to adenosine. Caffeine, on the other hand, has no sleepy side effects. Caffeine, rather than waking us up, prevents adenosine from causing us to fall asleep.

Although caffeine is an excellent source of energy, it can also spark a harsh afternoon depression. Caffeine withdrawal symptoms can range from mood swings to jitters. Since CBD is often used to promote relaxation, some people love incorporating it into their coffee.

Takeaway

CBD coffee is a common topic right now, thanks to the many beneficial effects that consumers and experts claim it can have. Despite the new legalization of hemp cultivation for CBD, less testing has been conducted. However, it is understood that it isn’t a psychoactive drug, it won’t get you high, and it can help with a variety of health problems, like chronic pain.

You’ll have to know for yourself whether it’s appropriate for you. Before doing it, it’s also a good idea to seek medical advice.
